Murder Suspect Tries To Grab Officer’s Gun While Detained And Holy Shit
Fox19 – A man arrested on a murder charge Tuesday tried to grab a Cincinnati police officer’s gun from its holster while being processed at the Criminal Investigation Section.
Thomas Robinson, 23, is accused of shooting 17-year-old Joseph Reno Armstrong Jr. on June 17.
In surveillance footage from inside an interview room, an officer is working to change Robinson’s handcuffs when the suspect glances at the gun then makes his move, briefly getting his hands on the weapon.
As officers work to restrain him, you can hear Robinson yell “Kill Me” six times during the battle for the gun.
The officer is able to keep both hands on his holster as two other cops come in to help. The fight for the weapon lasted about 13 seconds before police forced Robinson to the ground with a stun gun.
Talk about dramatic footage. Listen, cops have been videotaped doing some pretty shitty things in the most recent times, but this is one of those cases where you have to tip the cap to law enforcement. Gotta give them credit where credit’s due. I’d never be able to be a cop. If that makes me a pussy, then so be it. Shit like this is definitive proof that cops risk their lives every damn day. Has to be easily one of the top 3 hardest jobs in AMerica. One moment your crushing doughnuts and the Turkey Hill, and the next, some scumbag murderer is trying to steal your gun and try to go all Grand Theft Auto and shoot up the police station. Fuck that.
