  • Are we going to hear Obama's opinion about this shooting also ? Maybe a few choice words from the NAACP ? How about congress ?

  • This guy is a class act. If Mr. Dirtbag was just arrested back in April why isn't his sorry butt in jail? I wouldn't give this guy bail, too dangerous.

  • Double tap this piece of crap. Beats up a cop in April, then has to be shot in May? Did our sheriff install revolving doors on the jail tents in Sharpes?

  • Well if he has a attorney that knows how to handle the case then he wouldn't have to stay his butt in jail.

  • This is a friend of mine..the cops have had a hard on for him for a while now. Do u not see how badly he was beaten a few months ago. And that was while he was in his own back yard!

  • Hi my name is Olivier babadjide and am the guy who got shot by the police first of all i would just like to say be careful in believing what you hear from the police and the media more often than not they out to protect their own interests as in this case i was shot by this so called police officer for being somewhere i wasnt wanted i did not touch that officer he walked up to me and shot me twice i the chest without any provocation that s why his dash cam was so conveniently turned off during the shooting and that s why the other officer on the scene camera was intentionally turned off at that same moment and there is record of me at the 7 eleven doing anything illegal this people are crooks liars dirtbags and cowards

  • I agree I had them stick gun back of my head because of pot when I was 16 brevard has a lot of crime but the police rather mess with people with broken tail lights an arrest lawfully filming police, not all are bad some are good an it's unfortunate cops are getting shot now but come on they kill a person everymonth,I lived in Washington when I was in the army they had awesome police and I respect them 100 percent but down here cops are trigger happy an scared n believe me Tacoma was hood,that being said RIP pill and officer German , violence needs to end on both sides
