Trapt is a post-grunge/alternative metal band that originated from California in the United States, although they are often associated with the Nu-Metal bands that originated around the same time period - most of which have since disbanded. The band released their first self-titled album in 2002, followed by 'Someone In Control' in 2005.

For some reason they have been associated on Urban Dictionary with other bands such as Black Sabbath and Iron Maiden, primarily by people who apparently consider themselves to be "cooler" because they listen to niche bands - despite these bands having nothing in common with Trapt.
Ultra-cool niche band listener: Iron maiden are so much better! Trapt is a band for posers!
Other Guy: Perhaps I listen to them because I enjoy the music more than what you listen to, because Iron Maiden are hardly definitive on 'what's good'.

(For this example to work you have to look past the increasingly common thought among some metal listeners that some people listen because they like the music, not because they want to appear cool by listening to niche music)

CO19 is a rather rubbish acronym for Central Operations Specialist Firearms Command, the metropolitan police armed response unit. CO19 is the equivilant to the American S.W.A.T unit. Their main weapon is the MP5SF - the same used by British S.A.S except limited to Single Fire. Less commonly they also use the G36KSF and the G3KSF. Their main sidearm is the Glock 17.

CO19 is used mainly for detaining potentially armed suspects, although they are trained by the SAS to carry out hostage rescue and are also trained in the use of pyrotechnics, distraction devices and absailing. However, higher priority hostage situations will usually require the SAS who are far more proficient at this due to extremely rigourous training.
CO19 has often wrongly been criticised by the British media for a long run of mistakes, blown out of proportion in order to 'sell the story'. Such incidences included SAS officers that train CO19 complaining about the "gung ho" attitude, citing a training excercise where they surrendered their weapons as CO19 trainees entered the building, but were still shot at (using blank cartriges, of course). An oversight of this was that it was a training excercise, and the SAS have actually done this in real life in the Iranian hostage rescue - where two of the hotage-takers were talked down, but were still shot despite wielding no weapons.
