I didn't watch the entire video. For the rifle shot, I head a distinct "clang" -- suggesting that he was wearing a trauma plate. That changes things. The type of body armor most patrol police officers wear (as opposed to SWAT teams) is soft armor. It doesn't allow penetration, but it also doesn't dissipate the impact over a large area as a trauma plate will do. A hit on soft body armor WILL hurt, and can easily break a rib.
