jacksonville florida what county



  • Please don't let me die. Yet you wanted to kill two police officers that probably have a family to go to. Karma is a bitch.
    God bless our men in blue.

  • My old man needs to watch these videos.. he just watches CNN and thinks poor black people resist the cops because they’re afraid of being killed by the bad police officers. 🤦‍♂️

  • What the suspect think was going to happen when he hopped back into his car while there was a firearm there 🤷🏽‍♂️

  • Imagine having your family know that you’ve embarrassed them online, smh it’s not hard to be honest

  • I don't understand why people won't wear seatbelts but insist their life matters.
    Okay, then maybe wear a seatbelt? It will save your life,,, that is, if it matters.

  • What a shame this young idiot forced these great people to shoot him .. God bless all the honest brave law enforcement out there .. Those with wisdom know without you people .. anarchy would ensue and these thugs would take over !

  • its funny how people start cooperating when they have been shot, you know, when it doesn’t makes any difference if you are cooperating or not

  • Good job officers 👏 I really don't know why you seeking medical care for him hell with him

  • Sad he died but his actions caused it. He knew he would atleast be facing charges for an unconcealed weapon (do to no holster and it locked away or a concealed carry permit) and possession of marijuana and possible DUI (idk if testing positive for MJ in your system counts for that but it’s something that probably ran through his head). him walking away from his car was probably his last moments thinking “my life is over” but who thinks they would successfully run away from detain, grab their gun to shoot 2 armed officers (who are wearing body armor) and drive away without any repercussions. Your demise and charges were brought upon by your own lifestyle. Glad it was an experienced officer who could tell the signs as soon as he started moving in his car

  • haha I don't want to die but you try to drive off and reach for the gun. That's some funny shit. Of course you're going to get shot by these cops.

  • Cop didn't separate the victim from his weapon or vehicle by searching him in front of the vehicle. Bad training

  • Criminal losers always try to paint themselves as victims. Like pedophiles blaming children for turning them on

  • “Please don’t let me die!!” Just tried to kill the officers 🫤. Glad the dirtbag took a dirt nap 💀⚰️.

  • I just can't understand what was going on in his head. What was he up to? Shoot the cops? run away?
    He doesn't exactly seem to be an intelligent beast. The claims on legal weapon carriers seem to be very low.
    Here in Germany I am checked in the police file, the state file and by the Office for the Protection of the Constitution in order to be allowed to carry a blank gun, to protect myself.
    Just to give you an idea of ​​how strict the gun laws are around here.
    And thanks to the police officers who make the streets of the world a little bit safer and cleaner every day!
