A shining example of courage and restraint.
Cenk Uygur @ The Young Turks





"In a world rife with 'suicide-by-cop' a story about an officer who refused to kill a suspect almost seems like an oddity. But that is exactly what happened as rookie officer Jesse Kidder of Ohio apprehended suspect Michael Wilcox. Wilcox, wanted in connection with two murders, repeatedly charged Kidder, asking several times to be shot. The officer, with his gun drawn, continuously jumps out of the way and refuses to execute Wilcox. Eventually he surrendered and was taken into custody where he is being held on a two million dollar bail."



Jesse Kidder, Police Officer, Takes Down Murder Suspect Without Firing A Shot - The Huffington Post


"Law enforcement officers all across the nation deal with split-second decisions that mean life or death," Kidder later told WLWT-TV, the NBC station in Cincinnati. "I wanted to be absolutely sure before I used deadly force."


I really wish we had more officers willing to hold themselves to this standard.

RE: A shining example of courage and restraint.
Saved a guy who's wanted for two murders???

Why???

Do the taxpayers have a bunch of money that needs disposing???

A bullet only costs 50 cents...

Ohio tax payers like cops who do their jobs right. We have judges for the sentencing and no death penalty...

RE: A shining example of courage and restraint.
I'd usually say the same ---- but ---

I get a little suspicious when they only cover one side of the story.... AS IS THE CASE HERE.......


Who's he accused of killing????

How come there's NO mention of those folks??????

AND -- Where's the screaming relatives who cry out for justice??????????

....

I think you're being told what to think by the media...

I guess I should say why this pisses me off.....


A friend of mine's wife was an officer -- who had a punk pull this shit on her - and she had no choice but to shoot the cunt.

It was a totally justified shooting.

She killed herself a couple weeks later.


Fuck the suicide by cop assholes. Selfish little cowards.

Right.


Let's recap.


Emotional pleas against a man accused, but not convicted of, prior crimes is a reasonable enough basis for a cop to shot him in the street? Judge, jury, and executioner?

I guess you adhere to the Judge Dredd school of 'justice'?

Guess what?


There's a good chance this officer won't be committing suicide.


Because no one died, 'justified' or not.


And no offense, but if it was "a totally justified shooting", what was there to feel guilty about?


Just a thought.

I wonder what the difference was? Oh, yeah. Garner was selling loose cigarettes!

Being wanted for 2 murders ins't the same as being found guilty of committing two murders.

I wouldn't want any single person to decide on their own the guilt or innocence of anyone. That's not justice.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces
