You have absolutely no idea what you are talking about. This is a short story website. Not your personal thoughts blog. You are extremely ignorant in this particular field about the Use of Force spectrum and what it means to be in a dangerous situation with another human. Side note: You have clearly never been military, police, or on a sports team, as the "herd mentality" that you speak of is not a common trend.
Profoundly descriptive. Might I suggest transposing this work into a poem? The premise seems very fitting.
Very different style of writing that I am not familiar with, however I enjoyed it nonetheless.
