  1. This dude committed armed robbery, ran from police, pulled a gun, then got shot by said police and proceeded to cry for his mommy. All while his girlfriend screams "HE DIDN'T DO NOTHIN" "HE AIN'T GOT NOTHIN" "DON'T SHOOT" and "NO I DON'T KNOW WHO HE IS."

  2. "He don't got nothing" fuck whats wrong with people these days so dumb you didn't see that big shiny ass pistol in his hand? get in your car as soon as you see a suspect running towards you before you become victim…….

  3. Yes!! Praise the screaming women gods have answered our prayers 🙏🏻!!. Especially with an added bonus of her sounding like a dying animal

  4. He was gangster as fuck until a couple of bullets ripped through him.

    This video flat out shows you how straight up ignorance some people can be.

    You know for a fact your man went into the store with a gun to pull some bullshit he got shot in the process and somehow you’re gonna flip it on the police.

    Too bad she didn’t get shot

  5. What a way to grow up. Being brought into this world with bullets and cops. I’m SURE he’s NOT gonna hate cops when he grows up (sarcasm).

  6. Weird. Why wouldn't everyone have a gun while shopping? Stay out of no-gun zones; they are dangerous. But yeah, don't like an fkkn idiot if the cops show up.

  7. That beebing hell spawn shows precisely, why so called "multiculturalism" is a failed experience. All they see is that "their people" are attacked. They cannot comprehend (and are most likely unwilling to understand) the reason why one of them is being attacked. They cannot see themselves objectively. Because it is the "other people" who are attacking "her people".

    There never was any hope for races of different origins to live harmoniously together, under same nation. ONLY THOSE WHO ARE GENETICALLY SIMILAR, CAN BUILD A HARMONIOUS SOCIETY TOGETHER. JUST LOOK AT JAPAN. THEN LOOK AT THE STREETS OF MULTICULTURAL HELL OF AMERICA.

  8. Hey I just had that gun for my own protection. You know you need to protect yourself when you are committing crimes and running from those big bad cops that want to shoot back if I shoot at them. What the F*** dude, you shot me!
    Officers, that you for being there to protect us from A** H** like this.

  9. They are not prosecuting these people committing these crimes they are just handing out probation and dropping charges and releasing them back out on the street

  10. I didn’t know what that fucking noise was, come to find out it was a woman yelling what the hell LOL

  11. Don't even chant out BLM because this criminal was armed and staged a robbery and he could have shot anyone while trying to get away.

  12. when that lady first started yelping. For a second, I honestly thought that they accidently shot through someone's window and hit a dog
