    Default Video:Cops shoot man who pulled replica gun

    This job ain't easy.



    Video: Texas cops fatally shoot man who pulled replica
    Footage captured the split-second decision officers were forced to make when a suspect pulled what appeared to be a handgun

    Yesterday at 8:46 PM
    By PoliceOne Staff


    PALESTINE, Texas — Body camera footage capturing the split-second decision officers were forced to make when a suspect pulled what appeared to be a handgun has been released.

    According to the Palestine Herald, Sgt. Gabriel Green and Officer Kaylynn Griffin were called to the scene May 31 after employees at a local store witnessed 47-year-old James D. Bushey attempting to steal a case of beer.

    Bushey then entered a nearby restaurant and hid in a stall. While the officers were escorting him out of the building, he pulled out the replica pellet gun.

    Green fired multiple shots at Bushey before Griffin, who had been armed with a TASER, pulled her weapon and also opened fire on the suspect.

    Bushey died at the scene. Police later discovered the weapon was a replica made to resemble a Colt 1911 .45 caliber handgun, according to the report.

    Both officers have been cleared in the incident and have returned to full duty.

    It looked damn real from what I saw. Those officers were 100% right to shoot.

    Finally the cops aren't vilified for DOING THEIR JOB.


    I think these body cams are going to help the cops do their job and shut down these media spin "tragedies". When it's on video, it's hard to make up scenarios that make the cops look bad and the CRIMINALS look like victims.

    We had a cop up here got nailed for assault. He appealed and won. The Crown is now appealing. They released the video of the incident...the cop was definitely the bad guy. No media spin necessary.

    I know the cop in question, used to work with his wife. Never could stand the guy and I wasn't at all surprised to see him in action. Racist piece of shit.

    I work with the chronically homeless. All my clients know to call me before the police if something's going down. Amazing that this 5'2" old lady can defuse a situation without the use of any weapons or force...

    There's always going to be bad apples.

    Hopefully the more the body cams become the norm, maybe it'll weed out the bad ones because the video doesn't lie. No more hiding behind he said she said.

    Are the police that corrupt where you live that you tell your clients to call you first when they need help?

    Exactly. Unfortunately, where I live the majority of cops are racist. If you're First Nation (Indian) you don't have a hope in hell of being treated fairly by the majority of officers....

    I found a girl lying in the street one night. -30 C, no shoes, no coat. I suspected she had been tossed out of a moving vehicle judging by the road rash on her face.

    Cops got there first, I refused to leave until EMS got there because I could not trust the police...

    The mistake is ours for creating a situation with so many encounters with the mentally ill. You can't shut down resources to ill people and expect everything to work out well.

    I had a client whose voices were telling him to kill himself by slitting his own throat, strangling himself, or getting himself murdered by the cops. He was managing to cope but was very afraid that he couldn't fight the urge anymore. Should have been hospitalized but they just doubled his meds and added more.

    I've had clients come at me with weapons as well. Thankfully, my training is in non-violent intervention, not shoot to kill.
