* (Disclaimer: This video content is intended for educational and informational purposes only) *
St. Louis, Missouri — On Friday, May 28, 2021, St. Louis Metropolitan police officers were trying to pull over 32-year-old Darne Ricks, on Pennsylvania Avenue near Cherokee Street, in relation to an armed robbery investigation. Ricks drove erratically through streets where children were present as he escaped at more than 100 mph. The vehicle eventually crashed in the 3700 block of Nebraska. Ricks came to a stop on Nebraska Avenue. He stepped out of the car and fired at the officers who were pursuing him. An officer leapt out of his truck and returned fire. As Ricks ran away, the officer fired four shots before lowering his arms briefly, running, and firing eight more times.

Ricks was apprehended by police in a nearby alley following a brief foot chase. One of the officers was taken to the hospital with a graze wound above his right eye. It was not immediately clear if the wound was from shattered glass or the result of a bullet. The Officer was released later that day. Ricks was not injured in the altercation. A weapon was recovered at the scene. On March 28, 2023, Ricks pleaded guilty to firing at police officers in 2021, calling a halt to his circuit court trial on the second day of the proceeding. He was then sentenced to 21 years in prison. In addition, Ricks received a 10-year term for his involvement in a robbery that happened three days prior to the shootout with police.

  1. Those are the actions of someone with nothing to lose and who probably thought being dead or in jail would be better than what he already had going on in life.

  2. It's great to see another officer who appears to be in shape. Unfortunately, the majority are overweight, old girls that weigh 100 pounds. Today, there are ZERO standards to get hired, and then once they are hired, the majority by far go completely off the tracks because they know there is nothing that can be done to them. It's just disgusting!!

  3. Another extremely honorable U.S. citizen who deserves the Nobel Prize for Intelligence. Are U.S. citizens dumber than average? Or why do you have more people in prison than any other country?

  4. To be fair, he probably realized that going to prison without holes in him was the best option. Not everyone gets that in time. Jokes aside, the lack of empathy of people is horrible.

  5. There is no saving them. It's in the culture, how they're raised, and what they think is cool. They know there the flavor of the decade, politicians and judges and D.A's are all doing everything in there power to convince us its not them, it's not as bad as it looks and they need hugs and kisses and continue to be told you know that this isn't your fault, this is the white man's fault!!

  6. And that’s how you throw away almost the rest of your lifetime. He’s 32 now, when he’s free he will be 63. For what? For nothing. Could have stopped, got arrestet for robbery, good behavior, ne might have been out after 6-8 years. Starting a better life maybe. But he chose to be a douchebag. Spending 32 years in prison now. What an idiot

  7. Does the city pay for rounds that hit parked cars or is that one of those "non-specific" insurance claims?

  8. After all the dumb decisions that day, he ended with one of the best one of his life. Let this be a beginning. Stop listening to the rap, pull your pants up, and get a legit job. Your life will be much more rewarding.

  9. I swear I’m my ccw class they said you can go to jail shooting at somebody from a far distance , if they get so far you gotta think you shouldn’t engage in a shoot out and risk hitting people
