Donald Trump announced during his campaign that if elected president, he would sign an executive order to mandate the death penalty for convicted cop killers. “One of the first things I do, in terms of executive order if I win, will be to sign a strong, strong statement that will go out to the country — out to the world — that anybody killing a policeman, policewoman, a police officer — anybody killing a police officer, the death penalty. It’s going to happen, OK?”
Those statements will make you cheer even more when you read this story, knowing that all cop killers (or attempted cop killers) will be brought to justice.
As America Now reported:
Two Atlantic City, New Jersey, criminals got a dose of karma when they appeared in court to a room full of police officers after they attempted to kill a cop during a robbery.
Two officers reportedly responded to three men trying to rob three people outside of Caesars casino, which prompted a shootout. One of the suspects, 25-year-old Jerome Damon, was killed in the incident. Officer Jostle Vadell, 29, was rushed to the hospital in critical condition but was later considered stable.
In court, suspects Demitrius Cross and Martel Chisolm walked into the court room to find a room full of police officers who showed up to honor their brother in blue.
The heartbreaking story of Vadell’s injury went viral, with many applauding the officers for showing up in court to support their colleague.
“These two are a menace to society. They should never be released bk into the community. Senseless,” one Mad World News reader wrote on the site’s Facebook page.
“Great to see that the men and women in blue are showing support for each other,” another added.
One of these men had a prior criminal record. Chisolm was convicted on robbery charges on Sept. 8, 2008, according to New Jersey Department of Corrections records. Chisolm was also convicted of selling drugs and resisting arrest. He was released from Atlantic County Justice Facility in August of 2013.
The other suspect in the shooting, Demetrius Cross, 28 had been in the Atlantic County Justice Facility four separate times between 2011 and 2015, but has no criminal convictions on record.
Needless to say, attempting to kill police officers is about the last repeat offense you’d ever want to commit. They’re screwed folks!
