[ Editor’s Note: This is one hell of a police shooting video that turned out well for the cop that almost got his head blown off, but this team made a big mistake in no one yelling to get the second guy down on the ground which left him in an ambush position that he used in attempting to kill one of the officers.

The cops had a sizable arrest team due to working a case on a 4th of July shooting. There were three suspects, with the driver off screen until the last few frames getting hand cuffed.

The orange shirt perp to the right has his hands up at first, but when the cop working to cuff perp number one, for parole violation mind you, is focused on getting the cuffs on him, the other orange perp drops his hands down where he can get to his gun.

The arresting cop on the sidewalk was busy handcuffing his catch, and I cannot hear any of the usually expected “get down on the ground” at the orange guy standing close by, dangerously close to the arresting cop whose eyes are distracted from him.

You will need to watch these videos several times. The first is full speed, a dashboard camera, and the whole incident is over quickly in what is shown. The term “you snooze you lose” comes go mind in watching this, as you will see a split second reactions determine who goes to the morgue and who will be eating dinner at home that night.

The 2nd video is the body camera of the main shooting officer in full, and then in slow motion. You will see him advancing quickly on dashboard camera on the right screen. He is focused on the 2nd suspect and closing the range on him which you will see is critical to getting into a more accurate shooting position.


With a group of cops on his flanks, orange suspect basically commits suicide while trying to take one cop with him who also makes a mistake of not having his gun drawn. The perp pulls his gun and tries to shoot him in the head twice, which missed even though only a few feet away.

Once the perp turns to run the cop on the right side of the screen has a clear shot, and gets off two, with the first striking and the second one going down to the right, kicking up a puff of dirt. Two other officers had fired, also. If you review the body cam a couple of times in stop frame you can catch both of his shots with the muzzle powder ejecting.

Go back an watch the full speed of the event and it almost looks like it is being fast forwarded it goes down so quickly. I grabbed this right away for VT as an incredible example of how quickly life and death decisions have to be made during these arrests.

At close quarters like this if you let a perp beat you to the draw you only have movement, and your bullet proof vest to save yourself, praying that his misses to give you time to get a shot off.

What mass media has very lightly covered in what we are told to be overzealous cop shooting, is that in a vast majority of the time the perps are resisting arrest, and almost all of them would not have been killed if not for this common street tough issue of showing that you are a tough guy choosing the trial by combat method.

The only good that comes out of these shooting is that cops all over the country will be watching them over and over to study what could have been done better, like getting the Orange perp down on the ground faster, or having enough guns drawn on him that he might not have pulled his gun.

But he not only pulled, but fired twice, as none of the cops he could see had their guns out. He he had the advantage. He wanted to be somebody, and he will be remembered.

I have sympathy for his parents having to watch him in the video try to shoot the cop. Who can they be angry at now?… Jim W. Dean ]

A split second life or death shooting in Detroit. Perp in the orange shirt pulls his gun to shoot the advancing cop on the left, attempting a head shot because he does not have a vest on his face. This was a bad boy.

– First published … July 13, 2020

According to police, the new video proves that 20-year-old Hakeem Littleton, who was fatally shot by police, was not unarmed as rumours have claimed.

The Detroit Police Department has released body and dash-camera footage that shows that Littleton was the first to open fire before he was shot dead by the officers.

According to the video, Littleton fired two shots and continued shooting even as he fell down, but no police officer was injured.

“As Littleton raised the gun in his left hand he was aiming at the head of the officer”, Police Chief James Craig said at a press conference on Saturday. “It’s simply a miracle he wasn’t struck in the head.”

The incident occurred on Friday as the police were investigating a shooting that occurred on 4 July and arrested another man, Darnell Sylvester, apparently Littleton’s friend. They did not intend to arrest Littleton, who though told them “you are not going to take my man, in other words, take him into custody” before opening fire at the officers.

Detroit Mayor Muke Duggan also took to Twitter to say that  “cameras for this type of incident” helped confirm that the officer involved was attacked unexpectedly, and thanked the police chief for releasing the video so quickly.
