Cop dodges bullet and kills suspect in DRAMATIC gunfight (GRAPHIC VIDEO)

[ Editor’s Note: The female officer is alive due to her training, and using it. With all the stops cops do, the night ones are always the most dangerous.

People can be more drunk or drugged up and willing to do something they would not during the day. To avoid being the one going to the funeral home you have to be able to anticipate a felon’s move and already know what you are going to do. There is not time to think.

She ducked of course, as that is the standard move as the perp had his gun low and at a bad angle for him. If he had raised it up and leaned out the window he would have had a chance.

Cops practice the duck and dodge move she made to dart behind the car and pop up on the other side, and not too close as you will see, and empties a clip into him.

For him to shoot back he would have been twisting to his right, with his seat belt on, and trying to shoot through the right side window, I imagine for the first time, which with a 22 up against a Glock, does not tend to turn out so well. It was a good day for officer Jarecki, and she will be even more prepared the next time… Jim W. Dean ]

Police in northern California have released chilling footage of a short-lived, fatal shootout between a sheriff’s deputy and an armed suspect during what was ostensibly a routine traffic stop.

Shocking footage captured by Deputy Riley Jarecki’s body cam shows the moment armed suspect Javier Hernandez Morales, 43, shoots at her with a stolen handgun after a brief conversation between the two at roughly 11pm local time Sunday.

In a highly tense exchange, Jarecki asks if she can approach the driver’s side of the vehicle to have a look around before asking Hernandez Morales to roll down the window, which he does. “What’s up?” he asks her before opening fire.

He fires at least one shot but misses Jarecki who rounds the vehicle and fires multiple times through the front passenger side of the parked car, fatally shooting Morales, who died at the scene.

Morales had a warrant out for his arrest and had a loaded .22-caliber rifle in the car with him at the time of the shooting.

He was a farm worker who lived in Napa who had been booked into Napa County Jail at least five times for weapons violations, driving under the influence, and assaulting a police officer.

“It’s pretty obvious that he [Hernandez Morales] intended to kill her,”said Undersheriff Jon Crawford. Jarecki has been placed on temporary leave.

  1. Right, so the case has no controversy other than the immigration status of the perp. Otherwise this happens every day, and nobody cares. American citizens commit crimes against cops at a much higher percentage than immigrants. here they flash what their agenda is. It is a pro-Trump, anti-immigration snuff film.

  2. You can talk about it endlessly. It’s like a double-edged sword. On the one hand, irresponsible and cowardly actions, murders by the police. On the other hand, I am glad that in Russia you don’t have to worry about your life if you stopped the car in order to check the documents. Freaks enough in the US and in Russia. But in the USA they are all armed. In Russia, at worst, they will beat your face, but you will remain alive. USA and Russia have diametrically opposed systems.

  3. “These are the sort of dumbed down people who consider cops as heroes. Sorta like our heroes in Iraq, our heroes in Afghanistan.
    This is where liberty ends and tyranny begins: the worship of authority/ the most dangerous religion of all.”

    Police Shooting: Coward or Insane Drugged Out Cop?
    Officer Brailsford was found not guilty of murder because this footage was kept from a jury.

  4. Your response and reaction, illustrates why I think they released this. That is what they wanted to generate and reinforce. meanwhile, if people had access to legal services, our prison population would drop by half.
    But here, we have an about face, from your normal views on police and military personnel which you repeatedly bash without hesitation or objectivity. That appears to be the goal of the release.

  5. Body cam footage has been all over the net for a long time, so the public gets to see what the tip of the spear can be like, and how quickly you have to be able to react, and not over react, so you neither go to the morgue or shoot someone reaching for his license. The law clearly says the officer can shoot if in fear for his life.

    I saw one of these where a pair of black teens where standing in the headlights with their hands up, an one kept dropping his hands toward his belt, where the cop yelled to keep his hands up and don’t move. The kid obey twice, but when he went for his belt the third time the cop shot him.

    The kid turned out to be unarmed but the grand jury, inner city one with lots of black folks on it, agreed that the cop was in fear of his life and it was a justified shooting.

  6. Professional or not, it is a snuff film. Not for public viewing. A grand jury is the proper place to view this sort of thing. It is unnecessary to subject anyones family to this memory sabotage, no matter the previous offenses.
    This is the aspect of body cams, I do not like. When they can be used for propaganda. I would not want this sort of thing becoming normal public viewing.

    • Yes, I agree with the value of body cams, but question the release of this footage of what looks to be completely without controversy. The battle lines are drawn, between the ones the cops do not want released, and the ones they do. Meanwhile, the public is desensitized and acclimated to things that are not supposed to be normal or for everyone to see.
      Good cops do not let people see horrific images or scenes, because they know it cannot be purged from the mind, especially when it is a loved one. I think we should set standards for when this type of footage is released to the public. This particular one appears to have no reason.

  7. She was very very lucky. This reminds of the movie from the 1970’s “The New Centurions” with George Scott and Stacy Keach. Many of these stories don’t end with happy endings. It is such stories which provide the impetus for a police state. This contrasts with police shake downs we teenagers received back in the 1950’s in California. Four of us were routed out of a Model
    A Ford in front of a Safeway Store with lights glaring at us. We had done nothing wrong. Joe Green was combing his hair the entire time. They didn’t like it but released us after finding nothing. We had no problem getting booze as teenagers. Just give a Navy boy a six pack.

  8. In my opinion she had doing a huge Mistake by she isn’t looking his hands at all.Sorry at my writing iam not a native.

    • He had his right hand out of sight when she came back. I would have asked him to keep his hands on the steering wheel. When you cannot see one hand, you just assume there is a gun in it and you are hyper prepped to make your dodge move. The cop had the advantage on the angles as the perp will have his hand(s) low, and the cop will be at a 45 degree backward angle. The ducking can be done in a split second. The cop’s next big challenge is having the prep get the door open quick to get his gun hand out for some quick shots. So she has to get around the back of the car fast, over to the best-safest counter fire spot. The big question is why he did not crank the car up and go.
