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.

  1. The following is a public service announcement (PSA).

    How Black Men–or Anyone Else–Can Avoid being Killed by LEOs:
    #1 Never consume mind-altering drugs, substances that can you cause you to make moves perceived as threatening.

  2. Thank you officer for taking up the extra duty in waste disposal. Bye bye, Trayvon.

        1. 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.

      1. But we all know he was a thug and a criminal, even if we can’t prove it we all know he WAS casing the neighborhood to ROB it, and thank God for George Zimmerman! trayvon got what he deserved and he won’t be able to rob/hurt an innocent person ever again because he’s DEAD DEAD DEAD!!!

        1. Wow. Bigot much? He was walking home, and was 60 yards from his domicile. He was talking on the phone to his girlfriend. I don’t know what happened (neither do you) but it is a tragedy.

  3. 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.

  4. What is disturbing About that. Just another dumb ass getting what he deserves. One less delusional crazy libtard.

  5. Perp: “You only want to shoot me cuz I’m black!”
    Officer: “No. I’m gonna shoot you because you’re a drugged up delusional violent dumb*** who has a weapon in their hand and trying to hurt me with it!”

  6. As soon as I read that the officer fired his taser at Denham and it had no affect I knew Denham was under the influence of some sort of mind altering drug. It’s a travesty that Denham died, but he left the officer no choice.

  7. He did everything he could not to shoot the guy. At some point, you have to defend yourself. God bless the police officer who did everything he could but in the end had no choice.

  8. I bet the TDS crowd will blame Trump for the shooting, after all he is the Devil according to the assailant.

  9. “Police Officer walks backwards almost a half of a mile after taser misses a violent perpetrator to try and dissuade violent attacker from hitting him with chain before finally shooting the attacker.”

    -In a sane world, that would have been the headline.

      1. He was right there literally a few seconds before he finally decided to shoot him. WTH!?

      2. This could be reasonable – it happens and I really wish this officer the very best as this is a traumatic event for sure… Officer went well beyond reasonable expectation of getting suspect to comply until use of deadly force occurred. Glad officers are safe.

    1. I agree and this gives insight of an officers decision making process when confronted with Thugs like this. I would have felt it was justified in 1/2 the time, but kudos for the office keeping calm in the face of such danger.

    2. Killing a person should always be a last resort, and only when absolutely necessary.

      Otherwise, you’re advocating a principle of “Kill ’em for noncompliance.” Which is f’d up.

      1. ??? What are you talking about? I never said “kill ’em for noncompliance.” I simply said that was WAY too many warnings. And I suspect the cop never intended to kill the thug, but I guess you read ’em the way you see ’em.

      2. I think I felt I would have used deadly force about 1/2 way through this altercation as it aggression became obvious at that point.

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

    1. Yeah I would think that most cops don’t want that on their conscience, even if they’re backed into a corner like this officer.

      1. I don’t know if there is an officer alive who would have walked backwards that far and with that many commands completely taking his vehicle out of play and of any use

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

  12. Welcome back, my friends,
    To the show that never ends.
    We’re so glad you could attend,
    Come inside! Come inside!

    Come inside, the show’s about to start,
    Guaranteed to blow your head apart.
    Rest assured you’ll get your money’s worth,
    The greatest show in Heaven, Hell, or Earth.

  13. 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.

  14. That cop did everything possible to avoid shooting. Absolute tragedy what the left has been able to do that kids community. #smh

  15. Well if I had to say which of those videos I enjoyed the most it would be that little Police Puppy lunching on that fella’s arm for refusing to obey several commands.

  16. Kudos to the cop. I wouldn’t have even hesitated. Maybe he should’ve used his car for dramatic effect, ala clipping the knees out.

    1. Kudos to the cop. I wouldn’t have even hesitated.

      Which is why you shouldn’t be a cop.

      Itchy-trigger fingers are a big problem in this country with both cops and criminals.

        1. I ignore laws I don’t agree with based on whether or not they’re designed to prevent the deprivation of rights. If they are, then they are moral and I follow them. If they’re not, then they’re arbitrary and therefore optional – and only worth abiding when Johnny Laws eyes are on you.

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

      2. @atomicsentinel 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.

          1. 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.

            1. 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).

              1. @atomicsentinel 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
                Ciao bronx

                1. This fool challenged a peace officer and got killed for it and you didn’t like it one bit.

                  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.

  17. My first thought was how does a person become so hostile and provocative. What got into him? He’s got a death with, then I read: toxicology results showed PCP, marijuana and methamphetamine in his system. Horrible. Prayers for law enforcement having to deal with crap like this.

  18. Thankfully the cop is okay. The dead thug was obviously nuts and/or on some kind of drug. Our law enforcement officers are truly heroes every day.

  19. 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.

  20. The following is a public service announcement (PSA).

    How Black Men–or Anyone Else–Can Avoid being Killed by LEOs:
    #1 Never consume mind-altering drugs, substances that can you cause you to make moves perceived as threatening.

  21. Thank you officer for taking up the extra duty in waste disposal. Bye bye, Trayvon.

        1. 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.

          1. The difference is ” you want to kill me ‘cuz I’m black” as opposed to ” you killed my son because he’s black”. Culture of victimhood. Gets real f*cking old.

              1. Oh yes it does. That dog whistle is used every time a “person of color” gets killed while trying to hurt people. You’re British I believe. You wouldn’t understand.

                1. dog whistle? trayvon martin was shot and killed, right? if you think it had nothing to do with his being black, you are delusional.

                2. 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 for whites, they even encourage it. That’s why people like Al Sharpton have a platform. Hell, they even said Trayvon had iced tea with him. Yet in the crime scene photos it’s actually watermelon drink. Why? Because they didn’t want to give any weight to the stereotype that black people like watermelon.
                  3. I’m not going to say that Zimmerman didn’t make some mistakes. I’m not even going to say that necessarily he’s of a safe mind to carry a gun. However, you slam someone’s head repeatedly on the concrete you are actually trying to take their life they have the right to defend it to the death if they have to.

                  I wonder if you cry this much for every little black kid that gets shot in Chicago, Philadelphia, New York, Los Angeles, Detroit, St Louis,etc… You know, the actual 8 year old one’s who aren’t trying to smash in someone’s skull and are just playing outside their house.

                3. 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 would not have done the same if some creepy dude was chasing you at night for no reason. How about “stand your ground” doctrine? Does that not apply when it is a black kid being pursued by a white dude? You start the story after Zimmerman has already been chasing him. Because he was black.

                  I do have great sympathy whenever anyone is killed, especially when they are innocent of any wrongdoing, or just got caught up in an impossible situation. What I can’t stand is when bigots act as if anyone has it coming just because of their race, and will go to ridiculous lengths to defend someone who, whether he is guilty or not of murder, is a piece of shit human being who ignored police directives to disengage, pursued a kid, got his ass kicked, and so he killed the kid.

                4. 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 would’ve hit him until he was on the ground and then leave. Slamming someone’s head on the cement is attempted murder. Some people die from a single punch and their head smacking on to the cement. A fellow student in my high school years ago had a fiance that was in jail because he did that to the girl’s father.

                  This has nothing to do with stand your ground. Someone following you is not causing you direct harm. Until they actually attack stand your ground doesn’t count. it also doesn’t have to do with them being black. Here’s an incident that happened in my neck of the woods years ago where a blind black man killed a white mugger. Not a single white man I know had a problem with this when it happened.

                  https://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=1454&dat=19961012&id=GrFOAAAAIBAJ&sjid=QxUEAAAAIBAJ&pg=6788,4707364

                  You see racism on every street corner, in every snide remark, in every interaction. You live in a world that’s so easy because you can blame everything wrong on racism. I would have no more sway in the system than any other drone. So I don’t have the ability to opress someone. Which is what real racism is.

                5. 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) agree that right after the shot, it was Zimmerman who was on top of Martin.

                  But regardless of what happened in the end, we know damn well that it NEVER should have gotten to that point. If Zimmerman hadn’t been hassling and pursuing this kid for NO REASON, it would not have happened.
                  – Had Zimmerman not viewed every unknown black kid he saw as a criminal, this would not have happened.
                  – Had Zimmerman not been casing him, this wouldn’t have happened.
                  – Had Zimmerman not pursued him, after the police dispatch explicitly instructed him not to do so, this would not have happened.
                  – Had Zimmerman not confronted him, this wouldn’t have happened.

                  Of course you ignore all that and focus on Zimmerman’s self-serving story, despite a number of inconsistencies and outright falsehoods in his various stories. That’s because you see this through the lens of race. A black kid in a hoodie got shot, so he must have had it coming. And because he was a black kid, you got no problem with the fact that he was wrongfully suspected, cased, pursued, and confronted. You can’t stand it that a black kid might have stopped running and fought back.

                  So your comments on racism are ironic, at best. The kid was doing nothing illegal. He walking back from the store after buying skittles, for goodness sake. Some dumbass wannabe cop reported him, followed him, chased him, lost him, found him again, probably confronted him, and grabbed him. All because he looked suspicious? A black kid wearing a hoodie and carrying skittles? The creepy wannabe then got his ass kicked by a kid 40 lbs lighter than him, and and so he shot him.

                6. 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. It would be very easy to justify his shooting if I was looking at it through race. But keep crying wolf. Makes it harder to take seriously.

                  Wether he was buying Skittles for sizzurp or whatever. I don’t care. I care about the assault. If Zimmerman had shot him simply for getting his ass kicked after the fact, that’s a bad shooting. If he did it while he felt his life was in danger. Good. And don’t forget it wasn’t an all white jury that found him not guilty. So I’ll preemptively call bullshit on your upcoming “the jury was racist” b.s.

                7. 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 did. Every single person he had ever reported was black. He was hassling a young black kid.

                  Also, if this kid had been white, and had stopped and defended himself against a big, creepy looking black guy, and died for it, there is absolutely no way you can
                  honestly tell me that you would definitely take the black man’s side of it. Why can’t a black kid defend himself? Why’s he got to get shot when it was Zimmerman who was chasing him?

                  And yeah, you don’t care about race, which is why you throw in the crap about him buying, sizzurp.

                  There was an interesting study recently which indicated that once police make a stop, then, generally, blacks are no more likely to get killed or seriously injured than anyone else. Trouble is, blacks are wrongfully targeted, pulled over, harassed, stalked, whatever at a much higher percentage than everyone else. So a disproportionate number end up getting killed in these situations. That’s what’s at issue here. This 16 yr old should have never been targeted in the first place, Zimmerman should have never chased him, first by a car then on foot. Whoever started the confrontation, it only happened because Zimmerman was after him. Right there is your systemic racism at work. White kids don’t get chased like this by these wannabe assholes, or at last not as much.

                8. 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.
                  https://www-m.cnn.com/2015/04/07/living/feat-mindy-kaling-brother-affirmative-action/index.html?r=https%3A%2F%2Fduckduckgo.com%2F

                  Indian privilege is such a bitch.

                  And as far as sizzurp, I had no idea what it was, but innocent little Trayvon was a fan of. Basically I’m going to leave this conversation with several articles showing most of the stuff you’re referencing is median b.s.

                9. What nonsense. My claims and assumptions are factual. You don’t have a response so you drop into broad brush nonsense. 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.

                  Your continuation with the “sizzurp” nonsense, is again telling. He bought skittles at the store. Candy. But because he’s a black kid you feel compelled to paint him with some stereotyping garbage that has absolutely nothing to do with why he was killed. Yeah . . . you aren’t a bigot.

                10. LOL. That’s what you are reduced to? Sad. By the way, I looked at your ironically named “American Thinker” articles, home of “birther” articles, anti-science garbage, and various other conspiracies that ought to be an embarrassment to all real Conservatives.

                  Not surprisingly, American Thinker (lol) takes the same approach as you by trying to rake muck on a 16 year old dead kid to somehow create the false impression that he must have been up to no good. That is exactly what I am talking about. Oh, he’s black? Let’s come up with some nonsense about how he must have been up to no good, and therefor must have somehow had it coming. It’s really pretty sad.

                  While it has NOTHING to do with our discussion, I also looked at your blathering about the brother of Mingy Kaling (whoever that is.) You apparently didn’t even read your own article. The guy posed as a black kid to get into medical school and it did him no good! He was rejected at all but one of the schools to where he applied, and at that sub par school he clearly met their admissions requirements and was not accepted through the affirmative action program. His fake race had nothing to do with his single admission.

                  You live in a fantasy world where the white man is always oppressed and minorities and foreigners skate through life with handouts. Your world is not reality. Quit being such a snowflake, quit worrying about others, and start taking responsibility for your own situation, your family’s, and where possible, those in need. That is what it means to be conservative. Not constantly crying about how everyone is always out to get you.

                11. Facts are facts, and you’ve got none that are even close to relevant to what we were discussing.

                  American Thinker (hahaha) comes up with a convoluted theory where Martin was smoking pot or drinking codeine right before the incident. The fact is, the autopsy and toxicology reports destroy that theory. And the fact is, even if he had been stoned, it still wouldn’t justify targeting him, chasing him, and taking action to keep him from “getting away with it.”

                  The main “fact” driving you seems to be he was black kid with a hoodie. So you overlook the abhorrent behavior of the creepy racist wannabe vigilante who killed him.

                  But obviously my comments have hit too close to home. Because you no longer are willing and able to even pretend to have a reasonable discussion. Funny how you are so sure that yours is the reasonable position, but then when you are challenged you start acting like a sniveling child.

                12. I tired of the debate because everything with you is racist, nazi, etc. I don’t have enough concern with what anyone on the internet thinks to have it “hit close to home”. 200 words that go “blah-blah racist blah-blah nazi blah-blah facist blah-blah” is old. Been hearing that bullsh*t for 35 + years.

                13. LOL. I’ll bet you have. You just keep on ignoring the facts, Fatty, and stereotyping black kids, and you’ll keep hearing it. Gotta be them who are wrong tho. Couldn’t be you. Nothing wrong with siding with racist vigilante wannabe’s who kill black kids for buying skittles. You’ve certainly taken the moral high ground there.

                  I miss real conservatives.

                14. Seriously? You are the one playing victim here pal, not me. Everyone is always out to get you and poor Zimmerman, and as he said “these a**holes always get away.” Except for Zimmerman is the one who got away, didn’t he?

                  Somehow Conservatives have become the snowflakes, constantly whining about how everyone else is out to get them, and getting all the breaks. Don’t believe me . . . look at the unrelated nonsense you keep bringing up.
                  – Asians in education to justify the shooting of a black kid? Have you lost your mind?
                  – A opportunist Indian kid who set out to prove that black kids get all the breaks, but ended up unwittingly supporting the opposite position.
                  – The evil media is intentionally hiding the ‘facts’ which really amount to nothing but irrelevant nut-job conspiracies about “sizzurp” and blunts.
                  – You throw out nonsense about “the modern hobbled black” and “the bigotry of low expectations” as if this explains why a black kid was killed by a fragile snowflake like Zimmerman.

                  You are the victim here, man, not me. You are a caricature of a real conservative. A walking talking point. Fragile, victimized, oppressed.

      1. But we all know he was a thug and a criminal, even if we can’t prove it we all know he WAS casing the neighborhood to ROB it, and thank God for George Zimmerman! trayvon got what he deserved and he won’t be able to rob/hurt an innocent person ever again because he’s DEAD DEAD DEAD!!!

        1. Wow. Bigot much? He was walking home, and was 60 yards from his domicile. He was talking on the phone to his girlfriend. I don’t know what happened (neither do you) but it is a tragedy.

  22. Perp: “You only want to shoot me cuz I’m black!”
    Officer: “No. I’m gonna shoot you because you’re a drugged up delusional violent dumb*** who has a weapon in their hand and trying to hurt me with it!”

  23. What is disturbing About that. Just another dumb ass getting what he deserves. One less delusional crazy libtard.

  24. As soon as I read that the officer fired his taser at Denham and it had no affect I knew Denham was under the influence of some sort of mind altering drug. It’s a travesty that Denham died, but he left the officer no choice.

  25. He did everything he could not to shoot the guy. At some point, you have to defend yourself. God bless the police officer who did everything he could but in the end had no choice.

  26. I bet the TDS crowd will blame Trump for the shooting, after all he is the Devil according to the assailant.

  27. He ignored numerous warnings while advancing dozens of feet. One must conclude he wanted to get shot.

  28. Wow, that officer really gave the guy a chance – too much of a chance. And what nerve to ask the officer if he was going to shoot him because he was black. I’m 5’2″ 125lb white woman – I’m thinking I’d have gotten shot.

  29. Glad the cop’s ok but is his name Obama? Drew 14 red lines and kept retreating and drawing new ones!

    1. If he was able to say stop 36 times, then clearly that was 36 times he didn’t need to shoot yet.

      As I said below – I very much admire his restraint and self-control, and not giving into that impulse to go straight to lethal force. I hope that’s common among police officers. You usually don’t see it in these kinds of videos.

      1. The only problem with that thought is that if the officer had fallen down his family might have been arrested doing a funeral. Under a pressurized situation it is not easy to walk, let alone backwards. Your attention is on the perp.

  30. Play stupid/dangerous games with cops and after more than enough warnings you get to collect your very own Darwin Award.

  31. I’m glad we (regular citizens) have the right to stand their ground here. Cops don’t have that luxury. I’d have pulled that trigger way before he did!

  32. Only a short time ago I would have been very skeptical over the notion that Trump would soon be the object of intense demon hatred.

  33. “I’m glad the officer wasn’t injured and that he’s been cleared of any wrongdoing…”

    That’s the happy ending.

  34. I’m waiting for the cries of police brutality. The good thing about this video is there’s zero room for naysayers.

    1. Yes. This is why body/dashcams should be mandatory for all (but undercover) officers on duty, and failure to maintain them and keep them on and in working order be a basis for termination and loss of pension.

      1. @atomicsentinel Makes it tougher for bent lawyers to get dangerous criminals released back onto the street. It actually protects both the perp and the cop.

      2. Thanks for mentioning UC officers.Two abilities they do need is the ability to talk themselves into a situation and the ability to talk themselves out of a situation.Have a nice day AT

    2. 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”. He has1 soon who is a doctor, 1 who is aCPA, and one who walks around with braided hair smoking dope with his pants showing his ass.

      1. Isn’t that a song? “Two out of three ain’t bad”?

        Hopefully his dope smoking son grows out of it and goes a separate path.

      2. 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.

        I’m going to agree and disagree with you on that. You qualified it as “physical contact police brutality” which implies some kind of force engaged against the police officer by the suspect. 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. Now, I’m not saying that when they do go bad that it’s anybody’s fault but the perpetrator who turns it bad – but, it was 100% avoidable by the cop in the first place.

        If cops would stick to the actual criminals, and leave the rest of us the hell alone unless we call for them, it would be a net benefit to everyone.

      3. Trayvon Martin wasn’t killed by a police officer. He was killed by a wannabe tough guy creep who had ignored a directive from law enforcement dispatch .

  35. Unfortunately, people like Sharpton, Jackson, Obama and the so called black leaders except for MLK have destroyed the black youth. They only teach and advise the young blacks to be unhappy, angry, protest and not teach them about morality, respect for rule of law and personal responsibility. This is why there is so much of these crimes.

    1. @john You forgot drug dealing, drive-by shootings, arson, grand theft auto, burglary, looting…….

  36. Good cop. Double tap and America’s gene pool gets cleaner. I’m sick and tired of people thinking we can “save” this gangster scum.

    1. I’m pretty against the death penalty, but not because I believe criminals should be saved.

      More… stored. Just warehoused away to wither out the remainder of their lives thinking about their crimes in nice 9’x9′ box.

    1. Was it? Tox report said he swallowed a bucket of drugs. This dude was so smacked out of his gourd, I’m guessing he didn’t know WHAT he was doing. All three of those drugs cause major psychosis. That plus a cop-hate/victim-lottery mentality could have just sent this guy on a stoned “let’s pick a fight with a cop” mission.

      Doesn’t necessarily mean suicidal.

      1. @at

        Having such a large amount of different drugs in his system is a suicide mission. No one rammed those drugs down his throat….he took them willingly.

        1. We have no fact to suggest that this dude was in a self-loathing, depressed state of mind that drugs exacerbated into a “suicide” attempt by intimidating a cop until he shoots. That’s just too much of a reach.

          Occam’s Razor. Dude hates cops. Dude’s on drugs (and the good drugs at that – the uppers and the mind-alterers). Dude’s now an invincible superman that’s going to go attack a cop!

          Much easier to accept than he was out looking for a cop to end his life. I mean, maybe if he was going for some kind of black lives martyr thing, but even then.

  37. That cop did everything possible to avoid shooting. Absolute tragedy what the left has been able to do that kids community. #smh

  38. 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.

  39. Well if I had to say which of those videos I enjoyed the most it would be that little Police Puppy lunching on that fella’s arm for refusing to obey several commands.

  40. My first thought was how does a person become so hostile and provocative. What got into him? He’s got a death with, then I read: toxicology results showed PCP, marijuana and methamphetamine in his system. Horrible. Prayers for law enforcement having to deal with crap like this.

  41. He ignored numerous warnings while advancing dozens of feet. One must conclude he wanted to get shot.

  42. “Police Officer walks backwards almost a half of a mile after taser misses a violent perpetrator to try and dissuade violent attacker from hitting him with chain before finally shooting the attacker.”

    -In a sane world, that would have been the headline.

      1. He was right there literally a few seconds before he finally decided to shoot him. WTH!?

      2. This could be reasonable – it happens and I really wish this officer the very best as this is a traumatic event for sure… Officer went well beyond reasonable expectation of getting suspect to comply until use of deadly force occurred. Glad officers are safe.

    1. Killing a person should always be a last resort, and only when absolutely necessary.

      Otherwise, you’re advocating a principle of “Kill ’em for noncompliance.” Which is f’d up.

      1. I think I felt I would have used deadly force about 1/2 way through this altercation as it aggression became obvious at that point.

      2. ??? What are you talking about? I never said “kill ’em for noncompliance.” I simply said that was WAY too many warnings. And I suspect the cop never intended to kill the thug, but I guess you read ’em the way you see ’em.

    2. I agree and this gives insight of an officers decision making process when confronted with Thugs like this. I would have felt it was justified in 1/2 the time, but kudos for the office keeping calm in the face of such danger.

  43. Welcome back, my friends,
    To the show that never ends.
    We’re so glad you could attend,
    Come inside! Come inside!

    Come inside, the show’s about to start,
    Guaranteed to blow your head apart.
    Rest assured you’ll get your money’s worth,
    The greatest show in Heaven, Hell, or Earth.

    Another on bites the dust.

  44. Thankfully the cop is okay. The dead thug was obviously nuts and/or on some kind of drug. Our law enforcement officers are truly heroes every day.

  45. Kudos to the cop. I wouldn’t have even hesitated. Maybe he should’ve used his car for dramatic effect, ala clipping the knees out.

    1. Kudos to the cop. I wouldn’t have even hesitated.

      Which is why you shouldn’t be a cop.

      Itchy-trigger fingers are a big problem in this country with both cops and criminals.

        1. I ignore laws I don’t agree with based on whether or not they’re designed to prevent the deprivation of rights. If they are, then they are moral and I follow them. If they’re not, then they’re arbitrary and therefore optional – and only worth abiding when Johnny Laws eyes are on you.

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

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

      2. @atomicsentinel 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.

          1. 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.

            1. 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).

              1. @atomicsentinel 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
                Ciao bronx

                1. This fool challenged a peace officer and got killed for it and you didn’t like it one bit.

                  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.

        1. 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.

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

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

    2. Yeah I would think that most cops don’t want that on their conscience, even if they’re backed into a corner like this officer.

      1. I don’t know if there is an officer alive who would have walked backwards that far and with that many commands completely taking his vehicle out of play and of any use

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

  48. Wow, that officer really gave the guy a chance – too much of a chance. And what nerve to ask the officer if he was going to shoot him because he was black. I’m 5’2″ 125lb white woman – I’m thinking I’d have gotten shot.

  49. Glad the cop’s ok but is his name Obama? Drew 14 red lines and kept retreating and drawing new ones!

  50. I’m waiting for the cries of police brutality. The good thing about this video is there’s zero room for naysayers.
