Homie Decided To Bring A Knife To A Gun Fight With The Sheriff , It Didn’t End Well (Video)

MyPillow Mike Lindell

The Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Office released bodycam footage Monday afternoon of an officer-involved shooting that left a Galesburg man dead early Monday morning.

At approximately 2:44 a.m., Monday, Oct. 4, a Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s sergeant shot and killed R.V. Johnson, 22, outside of a Shell gas station on Miller Drive, located just north of I-94, on 35th Street in Galesburg.

The incident started with RV Johnson, 22, of Galesburg telling staff at the Shell gas station he needed to call 911. In the recording, he’s heard telling the 911 dispatcher that he wants authorities to come to the station.

When the Kalamazoo County deputy, a more than 20-year veteran on the force whose name has not been released, arrived, the situation escalated quickly. Sheriff Rick Fuller said the deputy didn’t know he was going to be confronted. Johnson is seen in the body-cam video lunging at the deputy with a knife multiple times.

The deputy tells Johnson to put his weapon down multiple times and when Johnson lunges again, the deputy shoots him once.

Johnson, video evidence shows, was wielding a knife at the time of the incident.

Authorities tried lifesaving measures but Johnson died on scene.

“To talk about what levels of force are used in any circumstance, that ultimately really comes from a full investigation,” said Sheriff Fuller. “We have been with the family this morning and I can tell you they are suffering this loss and this is very tragic.”

Fuller said this was the first time Johnson had an encounter with law enforcement.

The involved deputy was not hurt in the incident. Michigan State Police is now handling the investigation.

Reality 101. The fool actually believes he can do this stuff because he is told by his friends and relatives he can, and he thinks he can intimidate a real policeman as he sees on TV or in the games he plays. There are more of them (idiots) than cops and most are usually black; and all will blame the police for being over aggressive or excuse their violent behavior because of their lack of a father, home life, drugs, or diminished mental capacity, This is new school policeing; old school would have been a lot more than just one shot.

Good for the cop. More cops should shoot thug morons like this. You cannot attack a cop without repercussions and if you are stupid enough to try, you should die. One less thug for the world to put up with.

Definitely saved the state money, and probably saved someone’s life in the future by killing him. How stupid do you have to be to behave like the dead perp? The death penalty shouldn’t be so rare and difficult or impossible to use.

When society got all squeamish about the death penalty, it set in motion the feelings that one doesn’t have to worry about consequences anymore. When we reinstated it, we replaced that with letting them languish on death row for decades, another major societal failure.

I never understand why these “brave” cops are never brave and accurate enough to go for multiple shots at the person’s thighs, legs, when they’re that close and stationary. “Cherry busting” urges are real.
