WATCH: It doesn’t end well for thug who hurls insults at Trump while swinging four foot chain at cop…

You can probably guess how it’s going to end for a thug who endangers a cop’s life by swinging a four foot chain at him while hurling insults at Trump. [WARNING: DISTURBING CONTENT]



It’s hard to hear everything he said, but the NY Post transcribed a few things on the video where he calls Trump the devil and says the cop only wants to shoot him because he’s black.

Here’s more on the incident from CBS 8:

The incident began when San Diego Police received a 911 call reporting an assault. Witnesses reported seeing Vaughn Denham, 48, attack another man in the head and torso with a machete, causing serious injuries. San Diego Police Officer Corey Pitts responded to the call and as the officer was getting out of his patrol car, Denham ran up to the car and swung a four-foot long metal chain, striking the car. Pitts then got out of the vehicle and ordered Denham to drop the chain, but Denham proceeded toward the officer, according to the D.A.’s acccount.

Pitts then Tased Denham, but it appeared to have no effect, leading the officer to retreat for “a block and a half” before eventually firing two rounds from his gun at Denham in the area of Boston Avenue and South 40th Street, according to the letter signed by District Attorney Summer Stephan.

Denham died in a hospital at around 7:45 p.m. Pitts was not injured.

An autopsy showed Denham had four gunshot wounds, but two of those may have been reentry wounds, according to the D.A.’s letter, which also says toxicology results showed PCP, marijuana and methamphetamine in his system.

The review concluded that “Pitts fired at Denham in his own defense. He therefore bears no state criminal liability for his actions.”

This incident actually happened last year and it just goes to show, once again, how police officers risk their lives every day to keep us safe.

I’m glad the officer wasn’t injured and that he’s been cleared of any wrongdoing in what’s obvious to anyone who watches the video.

I’m glad this was justified. So many others were too and the cop still got screwed. I’d never be in law enforcement with this ridiculous anti-cop climate. If you shoot a black guy your life is usually over no matter if it’s a good shoot or not.

The poster above alluded to Trayvon. This situation really was nothing like that. Here a police officer was doing his job, responding to reports of a crime having been committed, and was trying to avoid having to use lethal force against an aggressor with a weapon. Nothing like the other.

Nope. He got killed for slamming someone’s head repeatedly onto concrete. White, black, asian… you do that to someone, you’re going to get shot. But I’m sure you’re willing to overlook several facts relevant to the case. 1. When Trayvon was on the phone with his girlfriend. He stated, according to her, he was being followed by a “creepy-ass cracker”, which is slang for a gay, white man. He thought Zimmerman was cruising for him. Which is why he confronted him. So Travon was a gay basher. 2. The media tried to convict Zimmerman before his day in court. They exclusively showed pics of him when he was 8 instead of 16, or whatever he was to garner further sympathy. They referred to Zimmerman as a “white hispanic” because they knew the racial outrage would be greater than if they just said Hispanic. Our media is just fine with hate… Read more »

1. LOL. I’ve heard what the friend said, but “creepy-ass cracker” isn’t slang for “gay” white man. It is slang for creepy white man. And by most reports Zimmerman was (and is) creepy. But no doubt Martin was scared. You would have been scared too if you were a kid and some creepy guy was tailing you at night while you were walking home. Imagine a white kid was being followed at night by a creepy looking black man, and turned to confront him, and got shot. I’m sure you won’t admit it, but deep down you know you’d be singing a very different tune. 2. The media didn’t kill Trayvon Martin. George Zimmerman did. Martin ran away to try and get away from the creep, and dispatch explicitly told Zimmerman not to pursue. He did anyway. 3. Martin beat the shit out of him. You telling me that you… Read more »

Creepy ass cracker testimony. http://www.drudgereport.com/flashrj.htm The girl friend put it in his head that he might be a victim of gay sexual assault. If Martin was truly scared, he would’ve kept runnning. His Twitter posts were always about kicking someone’s ass or choking them out. she wanted to prove how hard he was and it end up costing him his life. He didn’t get shot for confronting him he got shot for slamming his head into the cement. Had he punched him and walked away, it would’ve been justified. But he was trying to kill him. And by the way, 911 operators are not police nor do they have criminal training. So operators commands don’t mean sh*t. Were I to be in a confrontation such as that at his age I would have run home and told my dad to call the police. If it had to get physical I… Read more »

I read the testimony. Look at the rest of the testimony instead of this cherry-picking nonsense and you’d have no doubt that the kid was scared, and had good reason to be. Who wouldn’t be? As for your repeated mantra about how Martin was beating his head on the cement, the other evidence indicates that it is nonsense. All of the witness accounts had them on the grass, and the reporting officer indicated said the story about the cement was “not consistent with the evidence we found.” We don’t know what actually happened between the two, because Zimmerman killed the only other person who was there, and all of the other witness stories conflict as to who started it, who was on top of whom, and to what had happened. At the time of the shooting some suggest Zimmerman was on top, some say Martin was. But ALL (including Zimmerman)… Read more »

I’ll give you one thing. Zimmerman shouldn’t have gone after him. But Martin shouldn’t have confronted him or started swinging on him. As far as the head slamming that was testified in the case and injuries sustained support it. http://madmikesamerica.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/zimmermanwound.jpg I don’t care that Martin was black. It’s about the physical assault. You seem hung up on the fact that Martin kicked his ass. Okay great. Doesn’t change facts about the assault. I don’t care if Zimmerman called him the n-word over and over. It’s when it got physical that matters. Once again you introduce race assuming that if it’s a black kid I assume he deserves it. But here’s another case that flies in the face of your rhetoric. Walter Scotts shooting was bs. I’m glad the cop is in jail and I hope he’s there for a long time.

First, no one knows who confronted whom. Martin is dead, so we don’t have his version. And Zimmerman is a confirmed liar. You ignore the fact that before he went after him Zimmerman is recorded as saying “these assh*les always get away.” Sure as heck sounds like he was going to confront him. Second, the evidence was ambiguous, at best, on the supposed head beating. He had two minor lacerations on the back of his head, those could have come from anything, including Martin trying to pull him off the top of him. He said repeatedly he wasn’t in need of medical attention that night, and by the time he went to the doctor it was the next day, he was already a suspect and he went to his own doctor, so who knows? Third, you say that you don’t care if he was black, but Zimmerman sure as hell… Read more »

You’re claims and assumptions show that you are a willing echo for the media. The myth of the modern hobbled black is just that, a myth. It’s the bigotry of low expectations which is typical with the modern leftist viewpoint. Please tell me , if white privledge is such a thing, why do Asians succeed even better than whites? Is there Asian privilege? How about Indian privilege? Ironically, Mingy Kaling’s brother had to pose as a black man to be accepted into medical school.

I never said anything about “white privilege.” I never said anything about the “modern hobbled black” I referred to studies which establish, beyond doubt, that blacks, particularly young black males, are much more likely to be pulled over, stopped, followed, profiled, even when they have done nothing wrong. Just as was Martin. That is a fact. Study after study has determined the same thing. Asian performance in school? What the hell are you talking about? Is is cool that Travon Martin got killed by a racist wannabe vigilante because Asians perform better in school? Get a hold of yourself. You are spewing nonsense.

The majority of the people calling most instances of physical contact police brutality are either criminals, or family members of criminals who knew what they were doing. Trayvon Martin is a good example. A very intelligent black friend of mine always told his 3 sons while young “if you are lazy it is on you”, ” if you don’t do good in school it is on you”, “if you get shot by a cop it is on you”.

In that case, I agree with you – it’s the criminals that invite that sort of thing. BUT, I’m going to disagree with you in the larger sense that police officers put themselves in a lot of situations that they shouldn’t, and don’t have to. Needless confrontations with motorists or other citizens engaged in harmless, inoffensive behavior (ie. NOT criminals) opens them up to a lot of potentially bad situations.

While I agree that the shooting is justified, I do think PDs around the country need to have a better policy on dealing with “suicide by cop” incidents. It’s very clear the guy wanted the cop to shoot him and wasn’t inten on hurting the cop; otherwise, he would have rushed him. It concerns me greatly that only when the officer’s back-up is a few seconds away, does this officer FINALLY choose to open fire! Makes me wonder if he was more interested in covering his ass by making sure another cop witnesses it rather than avoiding to kill a most likely mentally ill individual.

Glad we have him as a legacy for good and moral law even if our lawmakers fall short.

Good thing you’re on-the-web to tell us who should and who shouldn’t pursue careers.

ATAT I see you rather the officer trip over something while walking backwards giving your homie a chance to kill this officer with the chain he was using as a weapon. That’s fked up.

Really….?

I see your bias with Law enforcement has your comprehension off.

But hey,….we’ll have a good laugh at you. The quotes marks will be me okay…?

“I see you RATHER”…..

Now go back and re-read what I said and your answer is right there.

I don’t rather anything. And he didn’t trip and fall. So… what are you talking about?

Or are you just coming up with imaginary “what if” scenarios in order to whine about my “bias” (whatever that means).

ATAT There is no if or buts about it. This fool challenged a peace officer and got killed for it and you didn’t like it one bit.

Growing up in the Bronx a police officer told me “if you live twice it okay but you only live once”.

If this guy would have complied maybe there would have been a chance to change his life around. Not anymore….you only live once my friend, you only live once.

Have a great day

It’s always a lamentable thing when someone is killed. It’s also lamentable when a cop must endure the trauma of killing someone.

I question the morality of anyone who celebrates either.

Still don’t know what you were going on about with the cop tripping. That didn’t happen.

Have yourself a good one too, bronx.

Funny, because I think the same thing every time we have one of these threads and the bell dings to turn the majority of otherwise very reasonable people into a bunch of bloodthirsty savages. That’s the real Pavlov going on in these threads.

Wow, you can see the cop really, really does not want to have to shoot this guy. Hands shaking after shots fired. Dang.

Yes, I admire his restraint until the unfortunate action became necessary and unavoidable.

I wonder if it’s going to chain anyone’s minds on the subject of Trump, cops, blacks, or anything else.
