    At first John says "I don't know what the shotgun is loaded with. . .". Then he says" I guarantee you its loaded with buckshot". Which is it? Sometimes people say "I guarantee you. . . " without really meaning it, but should we then believe what he says?

    So, why do you shoot a citizen in the head? No explanation. Was there a weapon, or mortal threat, or threat of any kind? Why the fuck is a "law" enforcement officer firing upon a citizen with lethal force, aimed at the head, by the way. What the fuck? This is inexcusable, unless you can tell us why there was a NEEEEEEED to kill a citizen here, at THIS moment.

OH YEAH, That's right; they want to defund the police!! Why Not? A win, win, win for all of the above and every other criminally minded dirt bag in America!! Good Luck with that my fellow Law Abiding, "hard working", Contributing, Patriotic American "CITIZENS"!!!!!!! . Might as well stay barricaded in you homes and defend your Castle while you will never be able to leave your homes again for fear of the violent crime that will escalate 10 fold. And the crimimals will be laughing in our faces! And the politicians and Judges will be defending the criimals, and criminalizing law enforcement for risking their lives every time they kiss their family on the way to work every morning for US. And their families pray that they will be home for DINNER that night!!!

    Forgive my ignorance (im Australian and never shot before) But wouldn't he risk hitting the hostage with the spread of the shot gun pellets. Or is a shot that close not far enough for the spread to begin significantly? If so could 1 or 2 pellets kill?

    Thanks for the video John. Knowing he pulled the trigger really justifies those officers actions too.

    Great video and commentary, as usual. I disagree on one point, though. A bullet to the head from any caliber handgun from 6-8 feet away will almost certainly kill him. In the off chance it doesn't, it certainly will incapacitate him long enough to allow follow-up shots.

    Damn, that was intense. The Officers did not hesitate to run to an armed criminal and when there was non compliance, one took a surgical shot with a shotgun with deadly results. At first I thought the hostage got shot too but thankfully he was unharmed. Kudos to that LEO hero. Sadly before the criminal took the asphalt temperature challenge he shot one of her family members. Apparently there was a court ordered No contact order or restraining order but clearly that didn't stop this POS but the police did! His days of committing crimes are over! Thank you to our Law Enforcement Officer who serve with pride, courage and dedication everyday. They must make difficult decisions for their safety and the safety of others. This is a prime example of exactly what they face and have to deal with everyday. They need to know we support them and want them protecting us. #BackTheBlue
