Midwest City police released a CCTV video of a cop shooting a child snatcher dead at point blank range, but picture freezes just before the child snatcher’s head exploded. Must kick ass being a cop – you get to blow random bad guy’s heads off just because you can and watch the head explosion happen right before your eyes in real time.
The child hostage situation happened in an Oklahoma supermarket on June 17, 2013. A man identified as 37 year old Sammie Wallace snatched a two year old girl from a shopping cart and held a knife to her throat. Alicia Keating, the toddler’s mother called 911 and pleaded with the child snatcher as other shoppers crowded around.
Local police arrived quickly and tried to negotiate with Sammie Wallace who told them that he was a member of a Satanic cult and threatened to sacrifice the girl at the end of the count down from 60. Captain David Huff, one of the officers who tried to reason with Sammie Wallace decided to take drastic action and shot the child snatcher in the head, killing him on the spot. The child was unharmed.
The Oklahoma County district attorney said the shooting was justified. Sammie Wallace served time from 2000 to 2011 in a Texas prison on drug and assault charges and reportedly had a long history of mental illness.
