Young boy in awe as heavily armed police officer prepares for 'possible standoff' in Denver

A young boy in Denver, Colorado was stood attentively as a heavily armed police officer showed the youth how he would prepare for a standoff situation.

Footage captured yesterday (March 27) shows the geared up officer preparing - what appears to be - an automatic firearm, inches from the child's face.

The kid's attention is then diverted to another SWAT vehicle coming from behind where it is en route to a crime scene.
