It can spiral outta control so fast ... I don't own a tv or follow the daily news. Only heard this story night before last. Confess it's been haunting me since.
Edit: Replaced original video w/ this longer version.
Notice the lie @ 2:58: Convicted felons can't own / carry firearms; cop asks if he has a weapon in the car. He was never going to get out of that car
That said, read the comments, the cop killer some defenders - their argument, the cops pushed it when the original stop could've been just citations written. Then, both lax & uncoordinated in controlling a suspect. Too aggressive rookie cop, veteran cop maybe trying to let him, "get some experience" I dunno.
This WILL be a training film future police academy classes, that's for certain.
But the cop killer a convicted felon's actions too - dirty gun in car, expired tags, no ID, maybe not over the limit but doesn't appear sober, either. Late night out & about; as the saying goes, "Nothing good happens after 2am ..."
2020 hindsight looks like a tragedy waiting to happen ... did.
Rest in peace, Sgt Johnson & may God have mercy on your soul the guy who killed.
And s the warning says, "Viewer discretion advised."
