Prayer to the officer! At least the scumbag piece of shit bled out at the scene. Good riddance, to bad his family wasn’t there to watch!

I live on Ozark and Officer Yoh is one of the nicest young men. We are all keeping him, his wife and the Ozark PD in our thoughts and prayers. Thank God they killed the POS that attacked him.

These stories should be mandatory reading for every American. I am not involved in law enforcement ...just a citizen, and I am awed and amazed by the risks our protectors take on our behalf every day while at the same time equally angered and appalled by the price they regularly pay for their dedication and bravery. Time for this increasing violence against our Police to be called out by every good hearted American.

The piece of shit has been identified as Bradley Cutchens. Apparently he was threatening suicide to his mother and she called the police. As the officer was existing his vehicle Cutchens shot him multiple times, including in the head. Additional units arrived and returned fire and killed the shooter. Officer Yoh is in critical condition and has a pregnant wife. Prayers to officer Yoh and his family and friends!! 🙏💙👨‍✈️ If you want to commit suicide, by all means that's your right. But you don't have the right to take innocent people with you!!!
