There are often circumstances the left can pounce on whenever a traffic stop or arrest goes awry. They try to fault law enforcement officers for how the handle situations or what they do to provoke criminals to try to harm them, and invariably the media jumps on the bandwagon condemning the police officers for doing their jobs. But in the case of the officer in this video doing a very basic traffic stop, he did everything right and still almost got killed.
From the beginning of the incident, caught on both dashcam and bodycam, the officer was polite and even consoling with the suspect. He wanted to find out if there was marijuana in quantities indicative of distribution or other illegal drugs in the vehicle. All he wanted the suspect to do was shut off his vehicle. But the suspect refused.
He was practically in tears as it became clear he wasn’t going to talk his way out of it, so he started to drive off… with the officer still hanging onto the vehicle. The officer drew his sidearm and compelled the suspect to stop, but the suspect still didn’t shut off the vehicle, nor did he even put it in park. After a short series of complaints, he reached for the officer’s sidearm before driving off again, this time dropping the officer on the side of the road 100 yards ahead before hopping on the highway.
This could have very easily turned into the death of either the suspect or the officer, but it didn’t. Now, the suspect has been captured and faces attempted murder charges.
When we see the brave men and women in law enforcement do everything they can to keep us safe, it’s a reminder that the attacks against them are real and those who protest them are siding with criminals like this guy.
