Suspect Shoots At Police Officer From POINT BLANK Range, Pays For It Dearly! (VIDEO)
Police officers have a dangerous job and not enough people realize the severity of that dangers.
There are not too many jobs that you might have where you know that there is a more than reasonable chance that you might not be making it home that day.
Which is why any law abiding citizen that gets pulled over by the police should always try to make the police feel as safe and as comfortable as possible.
The last time I was pulled over by a police officer was about six years ago for a burnt out headlight and I have to admit that I did everything I could to let that officer know he was in no danger at all from me.
Unfortunately there are far too many people that have no regard for the lives of these brave men and women.
Body cam footage released February 20, 2019, shows a suspect shoot at a Napa County Sheriff’s deputy only to be killed as a result.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports that the shooting occurred on February 17, 2019, as Napa County Sheriff’s deputy Riley Jarecki checked on a parked car. Forty-three-year-old Javier Hernandez Morales was sitting in the driver’s seat when Jarecki approached and asked if she could check the vehicle.
Jarecki said, “Wait right there, don’t move, okay?”
Morales motioned in compliance and remained in the driver’s seat.
Jarecki came around to the driver’s side of the vehicle and asked Morales to roll down the window. He rolled it down then allegedly pulled a gun with no warning and fired a shot at point-blank range.
Morales missed, and Jarecki opened fire.
Deputy Jarecki was not wounded in the exchange, but Morales was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police determined that Morales shot at Jarecki with a .22 revolver. A .22 rifle was also discovered in the car.
Morales “had at least five prior arrests for violations including possession of a concealed and loaded firearm, assault on a peace officer and driving under the influence.” There was no confirmation as to whether he was convicted on any of those counts.
