Yeah I agree. It appeared as if he drew the gun from his right side just as they went off screen to the left.In several of the press releases associated to this they claim the BG grabbed the officers gun. I don't think that was the case, but just odd. The officer did a damn good job. From the sound of the audio it sounded like he had the drop on the officer, but it got turned on him real quick.
I agree. I believe that I would have emptied my mag, reloaded, then emptied that one just to be safe. (As long as I had a third).he did everything right, tried to treat the a-hole with respect and got shot at in return. too bad the officer didnt dump the whole mag into this piece of feces. glad the officer is ok. think he should get a commendation. :thumb:
I disagree. After finding the info about the Halfway house, you know his senses were finely tuned to the situation. Probably why he WASN'T shot. He was subconsciously expecting something like that to happen.That cop was waay to courteous to a black guy roaming the streets at night with a sachel of unknown contents.
...for being so politically correct,it almost cost him his life.
I'm sure they will use this vid to instruct the young officers in training.
You're right. from 1:53 until 2:08 he is making sure his Gun is ready to draw, and even thinks about drawing it then(judging from body language). Actually at 4:59 it appears as if he shifts his "satchel"/bag and draws the gun. This is just after the perp starts backing up, and the LEO says, "Mr. Smith, Don't do this". Either way it was a good job on the part of the LEO.:thumb:got him!!!
check the two minute mark, looks like the dirt bag was checking on his gun.
