We’re all aware of the old saying that “the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun” – and you’d think that would be a pretty good reason NOT to mess with the police.
Not only are they armed, they’re trained. Sure they’re identifiable so any killer would be able to make the first shot, but when officers shoot back they’re in for it. As Mad World News reported, five thugs attempted to ambush the police…. and that quickly backfired on them.
A pair of Oklahoma City police officers stopped a man for a traffic violation but couldn’t get him to follow orders and hang up his phone, so they were forced to call for backup. Shortly after two more officers arrived, a pack of four thugs were right behind them and attempted to kill all four cops, but the criminals got a nasty surprise they didn’t see coming.
Tavone Payne was driving alone through town at about 9:30 p.m. when two patrolling officers saw him commit a moving vehicle violation. Although he stopped when instructed to pull over, things took an immediate turn for the worst when one officer overheard Payne on the phone telling others to come to the traffic stop. They called for backup of their own, but moments later, all officers were under attack when the gang members showed up in what is believed to have been a set up that didn’t go as well as the cop killers hoped when someone else arrived.
The original officers put Payne in the back of their patrol car for a license violation and were searching his vehicle when the friends came to the scene and started opening fire on the officers. The four cops ducked behind their vehicles for cover but couldn’t fire back since they were unable to tell where the shots were coming from in the apparently planned attack, Oklahoma City Police Officer Megan Morgan said, according to News 9. A bullet grazed one officer’s hand and was later found in his jacket.
This is when things went south for them. Thinking they had killed at least one officer, Donye Smiley, Trent Colbert, Marcus Robertson, and Samuel Carolina fled the scene, leaving Payne behind in the patrol car. In Carolina’s haste to get out of there, he dropped his sweatshirt and a 9mm handgun.
A couple of days after the thugs (believed to be members of the Crips gang), thought they had gotten away with their plan when karma caught up to them. All officers on the scene that night escaped relatively unscathed despite the gang members’ best efforts to kill them. Only one cop was struck and slightly injured but has already made a full recovery, whereas the thugs who did this to them are where they belong — behind bars — and will be there for years to come.
Good riddance to them. The more cop killers off the street the better, and without Obama in office, there’s not going to be any idiot to commute their sentences.
