    Rot in hell you piece of shit.

    Vietnam veteran who claimed PTSD in shooting-death of Georgia cop executed

    Andrew Howard Brannan, 66, was put to death by lethal injection Tuesday night in the 1998 killing of a Laurens County Sheriff's deputy during a traffic stop. Brannan was convicted of shooting deputy Kyle Dinkheller nine times with a rifle.
    Hours after the Georgia Supreme Court denied a request to stop the execution of Andrew Howard Brannan, the convicted cop-killer was put to death Tuesday at 8:33 p.m., authorities said.

    The 66-year-old Brannan's sentence was carried out at the state prison in Jackson — a single-drug lethal injection.

    Lawyers for the Vietnam veteran argued unsuccessfully that Brannan be spared, claiming the shooting was tied to mental illness stemming from his military service.

    Brannan shot Laurens County Sheriff's deputy Kyle Dinkheller nine times during a traffic stop in 1998, a crazed killing that was caught on video by a camera in the police cruiser.

    Dinkheller, 22, clocked Brannan driving 98 mph in his pickup and pulled him over. Authorities said Brannan began cursing, dancing in the street and saying "shoot me" before he rushed the deputy and struggled with him before going back to the truck to retrieve his rifle.

    Brannon's defense attorney tried to argue the veteran suffered from post traumatic stress disorder, but a court-appointed psychiatrist said Brannan was sane and he was convicted, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.


    If you've not seen the video - here it is. To me it's the hardest to watch cop / dashcam video I've ever seen. The sounds are sickening.

    One of the sadder dashcam videos I have seen.

    That poor kid was not ready for this line of work.

    This cop held his fire after repeated orders and allowed the guy to take as long as he wanted to arm himself and it cost him his life, this case is a perfect argument to the people that bitch about cops shooting drivers/passengers they suspect of having guns during traffic stops.

    They'd use it the other way. "Look how long they wait for a white man!"

    We need the US equivalent of an "eye for an eye" punishment when killing law enforcement. It's about the only thing that I agree with in Sharia law (the punishment, not the laws themselves, judging them or the process).

    You kill a cop with 9 shots, you get killed with 9 shots. Not in the head.

    Start with kneecapping them with a shotgun. One in each, that's 2.

    Then blow the hands off, one for each, that's now 4.

    Then the genitals with a shotgun, that's now 5.

    Then switch to a rifle.

    Gutshot, but not fatal. That's 6.

    Shoulders - that's 8.

    Finish with a headshot. Done.

    In all realistic truth, a black guy probably would have been shot.

    LAPD would have lit him up as soon as he took 2 steps toward the officer.

    Exactly.

    It's easy for us sitting here safely behind our computer screens to comment, but at the end of the day, if you're mentally or physically incapable of shooting someone, then law enforcement is probably not the right career for you.

    Conditioning. Think they're able to reason with a white guy and talk him down. You ever watch worldstar videos? Seem like the people in them can be reasoned with?

    I'm not saying there aren't valid reasons for assuming a black traffic stop could be more violent, I'm just making a point

    That piece of shit got to live almost as long on death row (17) as that kid's entire life (22).

    Damn.

    He would have been totally justified in shooting him once he went back to his car to get the rifle.

    Nope, the statistics say that in this situation you are more likely to be shot at quicker if you are white:

    Just more bullshit conventional wisdom propagated by race baiters to divide and excuse black criminality.
