    Exclamation Video of shots fired at cop... WOW

    The first shot clicks on an empty cylinder and the cop ducks away as the second misses. Watch his reaction and watch till the end because you'll detect the final outcome. Good guys win, BG dies.

    The officer said exactly what I'd have said if I were ever in the same position.

    I'm glad this worked out best for the officer and I'm not going to arm chair this account but I will say I hope this video will let others learn from his mistakes.

    The alcohol obviously clouded the driver's better judgement. The officer's training took over, that's what happens when you don't have time to think. Sorry the driver had to die, but he caused it to happen.

    Thank god that Officer Jessop is ok. Along with training and quick thinking he certainly had a guardian angel on his side that day.

    Yup.

    Though, feeling sorry or badly would require believing things would be better had the criminal survived what he set in motion. He earned his outcome via his attempt to erase an innocent life. He'll never be able to attempt that again ... and that's all to the good.

    Condolences to the officer and his family, who need to deal with the outcome of being involved in the killing of a person.

    "Well I'm tellin' you, son, it ain't no fun, starin' straight down a forty.....one."

    Not to make light of this, but that has to be about as high a pucker factor as it gets. Yes, there were some tactical errors evident in hindsight. More importantly, good guy lived, bad guy died, and good guy was cleared of any misconduct. That's about as good as these things can end...
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    Alcohol and bad judgement created a big problem, lead cleared the dirtbag's thinking...permanently! Glad the officer was OK.

    Good job on the officer's part. Looks like every shot met it's target.

    What's with the AG asking him about approaching the vehicle after it crashed? He's a COP he has to make sure the threat is neutralized. Looks like the AG was trying to install some doubt.
    One more step and it's on!

    Lotta shots, but he appeared to actually be aiming. No spray and pray, there. Only one shot hit the driver, DRT. Kudos.

    I have tremendous respect for LEOs as it is, however, my respect for the job they do just skyrocketed! He was lucky and obviously well trained at the same time! Bye, Bye, bad guy!!!

    and this ladies and gentlemen, so why you keep your hands up on the steering wheel when an leo approaches your car. routine traffics stops can be very dangerous, and they know it.

    Several of you have mentioned mistakes and errors on the officer's part without being specific. I think he did a good job but, for instructional purposes, what do you think his mistakes were? Since he stated that he was on heightened alert when he confronted the driver, I wonder why the first thing he didn't ask was for the driver to keep his hands in sight? He wasn't expecting to have a gun barrel stuck in his face so his reaction to it appeared slow, as though he was surprised. I couldn't tell from the video but, had there been a live round under the hammer, would he have been hit? Once he reacted, though, he moved out of the line of fire (I won't call where he was standing behind the vehicle cover) and returned accurate fire. A little bit of luck on top of training never hurts. For some traffics stops I have been involved in where two officers are riding together, one will address the driver while the other, depending on their read of the situation, will get out of the squad car and cover the stopped vehicle from the passenger side. I don't think that tactic would have helped in this situation or even changed the outcome.
