    Happens every time. Trusting the old white guy to turn himself in, will get you killed . Sympathy for the dead cop. Hope for the surviving cop.

  5. Absolute truth on May 20, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    Knowing a cop died brings tears of JOY to my eyes

  6. Joseph Risner on May 20, 2021 at 11:53 pm

    Mandatory death sentence for anyone killing a law enforcement officer.

  7. Kartez Drake on May 20, 2021 at 11:55 pm

    White Male shooter kills one cop, injures other cops, hasn’t been charged with a crime yet. 😄 🎶This is America🎶

  8. Dane Patterson on May 20, 2021 at 11:55 pm

    Still no press conference. Has he been charged? What are the facts? What are police hiding?

  12. June Longenecker on May 20, 2021 at 11:57 pm

    This was definitely profiling, why is the black cop dead and the other cops shot. He hasn’t been convicted yet, that i know of, but of course they are trying to find a story to get him off.

  19. Danny Jacobs on May 21, 2021 at 12:13 am

    How the officers can understand dispatch on the radio (at 0:55) is beyond me! I would think that enunciating each word properly is paramount with that position!

  20. Lettuce on May 21, 2021 at 12:14 am

    the problem is the guns

  21. Aidan Moretz on May 21, 2021 at 12:15 am

    For everyone wanting to know why he hasn’t been charged yet. They HAVE to first conduct a full investigation of the entire shootout and any other things he might of done. If they don’t do this they could end up covering up other terrible things he might of done.

  22. mary shaffer on May 21, 2021 at 12:19 am

    Of he had died in Vietnam that black dude be alive and with his family.

  23. New Black World Order on May 21, 2021 at 12:19 am

    MY SYMPATHIES AND CONDOLENCES TO THE OFFICER AND HIS FAMILY

  24. quest 77051 on May 21, 2021 at 12:22 am

    Why is that bum still alive? Godspeed to those officer’s.

  25. Ruben Villanueva on May 21, 2021 at 12:23 am

    Damn, these attorneys should all be investigated for potential mental problems!

  26. Joseph Elliott on May 21, 2021 at 12:23 am

    So I guess the sex offender got away? 😂 That’s BS if he did!!!

  27. Chestnut Brown on May 21, 2021 at 12:24 am

    Unarmed Black Americans are the threat though….

  28. RIP Arthur Morgan on May 21, 2021 at 12:25 am

    Maybe if we took care of our vietnam vets better, this whole mess could have been avoided.

  29. Im Dman on May 21, 2021 at 12:27 am

    You invade my home you get shot, badge means nothing.

  30. crown Victoria lifestyle on May 21, 2021 at 12:27 am

    well at least the shooter will still be able to take a knee for Colin Kaepernick now

  31. Phoenix Blue on May 21, 2021 at 12:29 am

    Still hasn’t been charged with a crime as of yet tonight!?!?!, WTF-

  32. Kouki86 Trueno on May 21, 2021 at 12:30 am

    Good thing everyone was okay

  33. Brie’s Thoughts on May 21, 2021 at 12:31 am

    So a highly armed man shoots multiple officers, killing one, and prevents others from helping the wounded for half an hour. Yet he is safely taken into custody? Meanwhile, a man sitting in his living room, or walking down his stairs, or wondering why a stranger is coming into his home, or isn’t even an adult yet and playing with a toy gun, is killed within SECONDS. 🙄🙄 This is horrible. I feel so sorry for the police officer and his family. 😞😞😞😞

  34. Bad News on May 21, 2021 at 12:32 am

    31 years of selfless service to his community.

  35. Fermin Nunez on May 21, 2021 at 12:34 am

    wow 15 miles

  36. Robert Hurley Jr on May 21, 2021 at 12:35 am

    My deepest sympathies go out to these families & ALL families of MURDERED OFFICERS! ENOUGH!

  37. Illusive[Brick] on May 21, 2021 at 12:36 am

    I’m unfeeling after the first shooting I remember I saw on the news.
    I’ve just become used to all of the shootings

  38. Kevin Whitehead on May 21, 2021 at 12:36 am

    How do you shoot 7 police nd still live

  39. Howard Ferguson on May 21, 2021 at 12:37 am

    Life of a government fall guy.

  40. iONLY on May 21, 2021 at 12:37 am

  41. E on May 21, 2021 at 12:37 am

    Obama allowed this to happen he is causing a divide this country today. Hillary should be locked up. Liberals want to take our guns away. So what the man son was wanted in a apparent child sex sting. Being a conservative grabing them by the pssy, sexual assault no big deal men will be men. Keep your mouth close fake news

  42. Love Davis on May 21, 2021 at 12:38 am

    He’s innocent until found guilty.

  43. Joseph Elliott on May 21, 2021 at 12:41 am

    And to Brittany Paden comment.. oh hush, stop being so racist. That old man has so many charges coming to him they probably have not gotten all of them ready yet. He’ll never be outside of the prison for the rest of his life. And trust me unless you like paying a lot of money due to your race, you do NOT want to be a white man 😂😂😂

  44. Supreme7198 on May 21, 2021 at 12:41 am

    1 officer dead 6 officers wounded and the suspect is taken alive. smh

  45. Absolute truth on May 21, 2021 at 12:42 am

    OINK OINK BANG BANG

  46. HairyDeck on May 21, 2021 at 12:44 am

    Don’t worry the shooters black no one cares

  47. C Dillard on May 21, 2021 at 12:45 am

    Sounds to me like a sworn defender of our constitution and somewhat knowledgeable law professional found himself once again in a fight for his rights. A mans home is his castle to which all should assume shall be defended with lethal force with no regards towards foreign or domestic intruders by either citizens or political representatives. The police know this, which is why they are armed. The gun slingers just met their match. Theirs no reason for remorse. They live and die by the gun. No one forced these officers to choose their job. A drafted recruit, that’s forced. Ahhh…you folks might wake up someday. Have a red pill on me! Take two, their small.

  48. Shell shock on May 21, 2021 at 12:45 am

    Wait.. so FLORENCE, SC? After hurricane Florence that just went through there and now this? COINCIDENCE? WAKE UP PEOPLE!

  49. Chuckie_889 on May 21, 2021 at 12:46 am

    Sounds like a no knock went bad

  50. Fyre doesidiotgames on May 21, 2021 at 12:47 am

    this is sign that the welfare of vets is a top priority. the VA needs some restructuring and replacement to ensure that disabled veterans and others dealing with combat based mental disorders are helped before disasters like these occur.
