That's outrageous, they could have stopped him without killing him. Something needs to be done about that Sheriff.

I doubt if that will happen, but I do find Sheriff Oddie Shoupe's priorities in ordering his deputies to go ahead and kill a person suspected of minor infractions, pretty troubling.

I dont know how truthful his account is. I don't know if the suspect was trying to or going to harm someone. I do know that during the recording the Sheriff said "it was that old boy I whooped, he was giving us trouble down at the station". And he said " i thrive on the shit".
Regardless, the sheriff is still in his position and it is more than obvious that he has no basic human decency.

Yeah, that ole boy he had "whooped" and had in the jail once.

I have to wonder (1) how did they know he wasn't armed if he didn't stop and (2) how did they know he was driving without a license?

They wouldn't have known if he was armed, or not, since they shot him for not pulling over when pursued, and he didn't shoot at them or anything.
I suppose that the license plate on his truck was just not the one registered to that particular vehicle, but the details about that are sketchy.

Both good reasons not to have shot him.

I just watched a video of two women being stripped searched by 2 male cops in a shopping mall and in front of many onlookers. How this is even legal is sickening to me. If this is the future of the country then this country is doomed. Google it, I tried to upload the video to here but I couldn't get it to work.

There have quite a few instances of that I've seen and read about, but none in a shopping mall. I can't find it, but the ones I've seen were sickening to me, as well.

I saw it on a Facebook post but couldn't find it anywhere else but seeing two girls stripped down to their underwear while groped by 2 male cops while a crowd of people watched was very disturbing

Ah, I don't use the usual social sites :

Usually the police call in asking for female officers when one's not on site. I'm not at all sure why they'd handle things the way they did.

Thanks for trying to get it posted... wish I could've helped.

Another "justified" shooting because someone was wearing a badge and gun and police uniform where does it stop cops are not supposed to be above the law,but I see more and more they choose to ignore this,serve and protect?More like Harrass and ignore.How much longer will it continue before something is done?

It says he was driving towards oncoming traffic with no intention to stop...say he ran into a family members car and killed them, there would have been an outcry and the police would have been blamed for not stopping him...the guy was a criminal and no one can say other lives were not at risk.....all he had to do was stop....

Yes. Although, that wasn't shown in the video of the chase, the pursuit could certainly have endangered other lives.

Before his foolish decision to not stop for the police, his "crimes" were minor...

Maybe we should treat all police officers like Barney Fife ... only give them one bullet, which they can't keep in their gun.

Nah... sure would be nice though, if all police officers were at least as basically good, as Barney Fife.

Every time someone suggest America should copy the restrictive gun laws of some other country ... I reply that I would favor it, if we started with the government forces. Police, FBI, BATFE, Postal Inspectors, US Marshalls, DEA, etc, etc - all should be disarmed, and only a select limited number allowed firearms.
