When you’re pulled over by Johnny Law, there are some things you should do and some that are in one’s best interest not to do. If you keep your hands where they can be seen and politely inform the officer that you’re armed when it’s appropriate, things will usually go uneventfully. If, however, you play stupid games, you’re likely to win stupid prizes. Below is a video showing a textbook example of how to play stupid games and absorb the excitement that follows.
Officers in Springdale, Arkansas pulled over a well-known customer in their world, Zachary Sutton, 26. Seems that Zachary had no license as a result of a history of drunk driving. One of the officers said he’d stopped Mr. Sutton three times in ten days, but this time, Mr. Sutton was going to jail.
As he was about to be handcuffed, Sutton failed to mention that he was carrying a gun in the appendix position. Sutton drew the gun, racked it, and fired at one of the cops before turning and running. He didn’t make it far – less than seven steps – before a hail of return fire felled him and he bled out.
Thankfully, this didn’t happen in Baltimore. The local prosecutor in Arkansas ruled it a justifiable shooting. Ozarkfirst.com has the story.
