Maybe, did he actually fire a shot, or just wave it around? Was it even a real gun?Suicide by cop?
Suicide by cop?
He ran a stop sign prior to the video coming on. The lights were already on when the video starts. That's why the officer says anywhere is fine a few seconds into the video.Hard to say, but I wouldn't be surprised if he had general issues with law enforcement, knew that he might get pulled over, then did this weird and abrupt right hand turn without signaling.

Good job by the officer. One thing I noticed is that he kept fiddling with his bodycam to make sure it was on. Those GD things are a nothing but a distraction. It was most egregious after the final shots, but the encounter wasn't really over even then. I'm not blaming him, but that's what's in patrol officers' heads these days.
Yup. I counted 11 shots by the cop. But nobody needs more than 6, amirite?It looks like the BG did get one shot off at the end (gunsmoke puff from barrel, looks like).
I just used that video to show my wife that BGs can get shot and still keep shooting. And how many rounds can be shot in a firefight just that quickly.
Maybe she'll go for a P365 now....
