Police bodycam footage has been released of an officer-involved shooting in Eaton County, Michigan, in which a knife-wielding stabbing suspect attacked a police officer.
The incident in question had occurred on Tuesday, when police responded to a 911 call in which a Quality Dairy clerk reported that the knife-wielding suspect had stabbed a 77-year old man after a confrontation in which the man had asked him to wear him a face mask or leave the business.
“A customer just stabbed another customer over a mask and then took off out of the parking lot,” the clerk told 911.
The stabbing suspect was later hailed by police in a municipal neighborhood, going to step outside of his vehicle in possession of a long knife.
After refusing to drop the weapon, he rushed the responding officer, who fired approximately ten shots before the charging suspect was subdued.
Watch graphic footage of the armed confrontation here:
The knife-wielding suspect was told to drop his weapon at least ten or possibly fifteen times, going on to attack the Eaton County Sheriff’s Deputies anyway.
The female police officer who discharged her weapon can be seen alleviating a failure-to-feed jam on her weapon during the attack, demonstrating considerable tactical skill in the incident.
The knife-wielding suspect, who was later identified as 43-year old Sean Ruis, later died at an area hospital from his injuries.
The sheriff’s deputy who fired her weapon has been placed on administrative leave following the incident, but Eaton County Sheriff Tom Reich has clarified that it is the standard procedure of the agency following any officer-involved shooting.
It’s hard to imagine that the deputy, who has been identified as a 22-year veteran of the force, would face punishment for discharging her weapon against a violent criminal suspect rushing her with a knife.
Pro-Abortion Protesters Storm Pro-Life Catholic Mass, Video Captures Them Chanting, Screaming, and Flipping the Bird
Satan at work.
On Friday morning eight abortion rights protesters stormed a Catholic Mass at St. Joseph Cathedral in downtown Columbus, Ohio. They were carrying signs, chanting, and screaming until police and a couple diocese officials forced them out. The protesters can then be seen giving them the finger as they continued chanting.
“Two, four, six, eight, this Church teaches hate,” went one of their chants. They also shouted about how abortion rights are under siege while holding signs that read “Fund Abortion, Not Cops” and “Abortion On Demand, End Hyde Now.” The latter refers to the Hyde Amendment, a provision dating back to 1976 that blocks federal funding for the overwhelming majority of abortions. The only exceptions: if the mother’s life is in danger or if the pregnancy involved rape or incest.
The Mass, presided over by Bishop Robert Brennan, took place on the Day of Prayer for the Legal Protection of Unborn Children. This special day of prayer occurs every January 22, the anniversary of Roe v. Wade. According to the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, the General Instruction of the Roman Missal designates the day as one for “prayer and penance.”
“[It] shall be observed as a particular day of prayer for the full restoration of the legal guarantee of the right to life and of penance for violations to the dignity of the human person committed through acts of abortion,” the missal reads.
Bishop Brennan later released a statement on the disruption: “Today during our Respect Life Mass at St. Joseph Cathedral, a group of protesters entered this sacred space in an attempt to disrupt our worship. I am deeply thankful to the Columbus Police, assisted by diocesan staff, for the quick response without injury to anyone present.
“I want to express my great admiration and thanks to all those attending the Mass whose respectful and prayerful response reflects the joy, hope, and mercy that marks our pro-life witness. I also apologize to the families present whose children were exposed to this.
“On this day, in remembrance of the Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court decision, I ask all to continue to pray for the unborn who died, for all those who have experienced the pain of abortion, and for those who cannot understand our divine and steadfast calling to champion this cause.”
