VIDEO: Milwaukee Police Shoot Gun-Wielding Suspect During Traffic Stop

Recommended Posts

Back in August, Milwaukee police shot and killed a gun-wielding suspect on the south side of the city. According to Wisconsin Public Radio, Police Chief Alfonso Morales said officers were following up on a suspect who had fled earlier in the day.

The body-cam video shows officers conducting a traffic stop. After removing the driver from the car, the 48-year-old suspect climbed into the driver’s seat. Then, he took off, knocking one officer to the ground. The officers pursued, but ended up losing sight of the car.

However, officers later stopped a vehicle in the 1900 block of South 10th Street a little before 5 p.m. They were talking to the occupants, when a man in the back seat exited with a handgun. Police drew and ended up shooting Mario A. Hobson.

Reports On The Gun-Wielding Suspect

Now early reports of this police shooting discuss how Hobson supposedly fled police. They also mention that it happened on the anniversary of the Milwaukee officer shooting of 23-year-old Sylville Smith. That shooting caused riots on the city’s north side. However, there is no mention that Hobson hid behind two women, along with children, according to the New York Post.

It sure seems as if no matter how police handle a situation, the media refuse to give them a break. The video shows officers talking to the women in the front seat. They even took the keys to the vehicle to make sure they didn’t flee like the suspect did earlier in the day. The officers handled this situation professionally, being polite but forceful in their requests. They obviously suspected something wasn’t right. It is even possible that they recognized the suspect as the one who had fled.

Regardless, officers wanted the man in the back out of the car. And when he exited with a gun in his hand, they performed their duties in the manner in which they were trained. And in the process a felon, who was wanted on multiple charges and not legally allowed a gun, died. The whole situation is sad, as a man lost his life, and officers now how to live with the fact that they took it.
