How come it didnt explode when hit against the concrete wall. What has to happen for it to exploded?

Really intense and a really risky plan if you ask me.

Cool video.

assuming its a standard grenade the plunger has to active it otherwise its still pretty safe, so long as the plunger doesnt arm he could put the pin back in and rearm it again at a later date.

offtopic james you seem to find good videos there, any chance you can find one that deals with a bomb and the bomb squad in jeans that shakes the bomb and throws it before it blows up?

That was good

Very good work by the police officers and especially by the marksmen. It takes an incredible amount of self-control and judgement to sit for hours and watch a situation that may be out of your control. They could have ended the suspect's life at any moment, but would have done the same for his two hostages. This particular situation is called a "Dead Man's Switch". It's nothing new for police, and it is the most tense situation you can face, speaking from experience.

Four years ago, when I was just starting out, we had a callup on the freeway. A man had stopped his truck on the road, and claimed he had a 4 year old child with him. The man had a lighter and had doused both him and the child in gasoline, and was threatening to ingnite the gas. We had sharpshooters watching the truck from an overpass, and they had clear shots the whole time, but they couldn't get a headshot and were afraid that anything less than that would allow the man enough time to flick on the lighter. A team consisting of 4 other SWAT officers and myself was assembled to end the standoff. While me and 3 men stacked up behind the truck, the lead officer stood right in front of the truck and held the suspect's attention. We had a small window and we took it; myself and one other officer covered the doors, and the two other men flew up the side of the truck as a flashbang landed on the hood of the car and detonated. The officers at the drivers door sprayed disabling foam on the driver, and the second cover officer and myself made our way to the passenger door. It turned out that there was no other passenger in the car, just a doll that the man had on the floorboards. He was mentally disturbed and under the influence at the time. These situations are, as I said, very tense. Training can't prepare you for it, but you hope that your judgement will see you through.

Bravo to the officers in the video.
