Lightbulb video of police officer shot three times point blank range "Tell my family I love them"

I saw that video on another website.

The officer is still recovering from serious gunshot wounds.

Surprises me the perp was sentenced to only 35 years, though.

He should have gotten a stiffer sentence.

And that is the problem, the perp would not follow commands and as a cop you should know that the taser would have not done squat with the jack the perp was wearing, sounds like he should have had his firearm out instead, just saying. Unfortunately you guys have one hell of a job, we both know had he shot the perp first then Murphy's Law would have been that he only had his wallet, but then again we Monday Morning Quarterbacks all get to critic the situation based on knowing the complete truth. Thankfully for me I was not a LEO, but a Grunt in the military, we did not have to play by those rules, I tell you once to do something you best do it, maybe if I am having a good day, I might give the command twice, the next sound would someone zipping the perp up in a body bag.
Thanks for your Service, everyone should ride along with an officer some time, do they still do that? The lesson is very eye opening when one realizes what you have to deal with and how little time there is to make a life or death decision.

I wouldn't mind if the criminal was disposed of like the piece of human garbage that he is. Throw the book, and everything else you can, at people who target honest men and women in blue who are just trying to earn an honest living and provide for their families. Disgusting the amount of resources that will be wasted supporting this burden to society.

Here is the full video. Thank goodness for the bystander who stayed with him. Nearly 10 minutes for EMS to get there.

Black lives apparently only matter to them when acts of violence are committed by white/Asian police officers. Otherwise, it's just business as usual/survival of the fittest.

I take it that you don't understand BLM? The perp was arrested and sentenced. No need for BLM. BLM show when the perps gets to get off free and not even be arrested. Like cops "fearing for their life".
