    Police just can't win....



    NEW RICHMOND, Ohio – A police officer in New Richmond, Ohio is being praised for holding fire as a murder suspect charged at him last week.
    That suspect repeatedly shouted “shoot me” as he ran towards the officer and the entire confrontation was caught on the officer’s body camera Thursday.

    Officer Jesse Kidder followed the vehicle of a man wanted for killing his girlfriend. Dispatchers warned Kidder the suspect, Michael Wilcox, 27, may threaten suicide by cop and he also may have a gun under his seat.
    Kidder soon stopped the vehicle.

    The video shows the suspect charging the cop asking to be shot and Kidder backpedaled away from Wilcox, as he continued to shout “Shoot me.”
    Kidder even lost his balance and fell to the ground and Wilcox continued to run at him. Kidder eventually got Wilcox to surrender and lay on the ground before another officer arrived on the scene.

    Kidder says a relative gave him the body camera after the deadly officer-involved shooting in Ferguson, Missouri last summer.

    Officers arrested Wilcox, who has been charged with murdering 25-year-old Courtney Fowler and is being held on a $2 million dollar bond.
    He is also a person of interest in another murder in Kentucky.

    ...that cop is a 2 time iraq veteran with a purple heart. he started wearing his own body camera after the trayvon and mike brown revelations. not a department issued camera, his own camera to document his actions.

    well of course he didn't shoot him.

    it's 10 points for blacks.
    8 points for hispanics
    6 points for muslims
    and minus 25 points for whites.

    duh.

    He needs retraining.....he fell down while backing up and the guy had his hand in his pocket......this could have ended badly for the policeman.

    Not saying drop him the first time, but when trying to apprehend a double murder suspect, you do not give him 10 chances.

    This wasn't reverse racism. This was thwarting a suicide by proxy incident.

    I never saw a weapon. As long as there was room to safely retreat and keep the suspect in sight at a reasonable distance I see no issue here. With the guy charging with his hands in his pockets, depending on what info the cop had at the time, a shooting may have been justified as well.
