  1. Scared enough of the air to wear a face diaper, but not scared of bullets enough to comply? Truly a mystery we will never have an answer to.

  2. Man!! That was crazy!! Between the guy on the ground in the street with cops shooting right over him, the house camera footage, and if anyone was inside… insane!!

  3. The only hope we have is in Jesus. “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:7

    Trust in the Lord Jesus Christ for he alone saves us, forgives us of all of our sins, and promises to give us a new eternal life in him. “If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9

    God offers us the free gift of salvation, we only have to except it. You can start by praying this prayer:
    (Dear God creator of the Heavens and the Earth, I know that I am a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness. I believe that your son, the Messiah, Jesus Christ died on the cross for my sins and in 3 days he rose from the dead. I ask that his blood covers me and pays my penalty for my sins. I turn from my sins and invite the Holy Spirit to come into my heart and my life. I want to trust and follow You Lord Jesus as my Lord and Savior.)

    Now believe in your salvation through Jesus Christ’s shedding of blood for you. Turn from your wicked ways and openly rely on God's grace. Develop a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ and reading the Bible. Lastly trust in the words of Bible (in the original text), not in words of a pastor. So read the Bible for yourself, then pray and God will use the Holy Spirit to help you understand.

    God Bless You

  4. Mr Walsh isn't that bad. He was wearing a KN95 mask so he doesn't catch the coof. Also, this is California, specifically Los Angeles. He would have been released on signature bond the next day and the LA District Attorney would reduce or drop charges for "social justice". Mr. Walsh should have thrown away the gun and surrendered. He'd be alive and back on the street. Instead, he decided to John Wick his way out.

    I'm sure the officers involved will be fired and convicted of First Degree Murder by the LA District Attorney.

  5. Maybe in these cases we should say 'keep your hands out the window and drop the keys' because @ 2:11 this guy had no problem turning the front wheels, to drive away, which tells me the car was running…

  6. I know the job has to be done but these cops shot wildly into a house that had nothing to do with this crime….they are lucky they didn't kill the occupants of the home. I hope they Paid to fix the house

  7. I'm just gonna peek over this wall real slow like, just to se*

    St Peter: Alright, misterrrrrr…. Walsh? Let's see what you've been up to. Ooooh dear…!

  8. I love how he is like stop stop like this some kind of game and he wants a break. You made the dumb ass decision of picking up a gun and running and refuse to drop it, so they slumped your ass in a corner. The only way for clowns to go out.
