  1. He died with his pants down. 🤣. Such a meaningful way to go out, he really changed the world 😂 I wish the dumbass can see this comment from hell.

  2. How are they supposed to contact his wife when he doesn’t give them his name besides “Marc” or her phone number? And then he just keeps repeating put my wife on the phone…. you’re on the phone, just call her IDIOT.

  3. I can’t believe the amount of idiot Grandtheft auto gamers commenting that they didn’t know San Andreas was a real city 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ Are you serious?????

  4. "As soon as I said I love you he let the woman go and they dumped on him. I know we had our problems but he is still my husband and father of my two babies"
    She also mentioned that he was trying to turn his life around….
    Yeah, ok

  5. Another dumbass that got himself killed and freed society of his presence. His violence and ignorance can never get another innocent person hurt again, this was the best possible outcome for the felon. It's terrible that a deputy and an innocent woman were both injured by gunfire during this incident.

  6. Thank goodness that dirtbag is off the streets for good. My thoughts are with the innocent victim who was hit & the brave police officers who responded

  7. Lmfao I had no idea that San Andreas was an actual location in California.
    That's hilarious. XD
    Edit: Should have known there would already be no fewer than like 500 comments on this already. Now I feel foolish. 😆

  8. Wow 3:57 .. if you go frame by frame you can see a cop bullet cascading back from the rail near the dude to the sign pole and up

  9. 1/10 oz. of latex could have prevented all of this. Men who are too lazy or who can't be bothered to wear a condom (and the women who don't require "their man" to wear one) certainly can't be bothered to be good parents… and this is the result of poor decisions made by multiple generations.

  10. Yet blm will defend the criminal. Doesn't matter how many women he hurt or crimes commited. Blm is KKK 2.0. Both hateful groups, who think they are the victims of the other race and of the government.
