VIDEO: Bystanders At Officer's Murder Taunt Police, Say She Deserved It

Bystanders heckled and taunted police as they established a perimeter around the active shooter on Wednesday night.

Sacramento, CA – Bystanders near the scene where Sacramento Police Officer Tara O’Sullivan was murdered in an ambush on Wednesday night taunted police and told them that their colleague deserved to be shot (video below).

Cell phone footage of the belligerent bystanders’ banter was posted to Twitter by journalist Matthew Keys prior to Officer O’Sullivan’s death.

The video showed Sacramento police as they calmly asked bystanders to step back while they established a perimeter around the scene.

At the time, the gunman accused of killing Officer O’Sullivan was still barricaded inside a nearby residence, firing rounds at police.

One of the bystanders told an officer that she’d move once the actual line was re-established closer to where she was standing.

“Re-establish it and then we’ll watch from here,” she told him. “’Cause we gonna watch…Get your s--t in order.”

At least two of the bystanders then began heckling the officers for establishing a perimeter when they were only “looking for one person,” the video showed.

“The only person we need to be saved from is you!” a woman yelled.

The video cut out just as the officer tried to explain to the women that stray bullets still have the potential to harm innocent bystanders.

“Whatever officer get shot need to be,” a bystander declared moments later. “Y’all need to be! Y’all need to be!”

“Thank you, ma’am,” one of the officers responded quietly.

“You’re welcome, you little punk!” she retorted. “You’re welcome bastard! You little coward!”

She then told the officer to “take that gun off” and threatened to “whoop” him, the video showed.

The officers refused to engage with the bystanders, and walked away after setting up their perimeter tape.

“Come on back!” one woman yelled. “Coward! Ya little coward! All y’all cowards!”

“We know they are,” another bystander said in agreement.

The belligerent woman then warned the officers that they were also armed.

“We got guns too!” she yelled.

Later in the video, bystanders seemed to be shocked to hear multiple gunshots being fired in the neighborhood.

“They over here scrambling,” one bystander said in an amused tone, just before the video ended.

Officer O’Sullivan died after being shot in an ambush attack while assisting with a domestic disturbance situation earlier in the night.

The 26-year-old officer and her field training officer (FTO) responded to the 200-block of Redwood Avenue after meeting up with a woman who was involved in the domestic violence incident earlier in the day, according to The Sacramento Bee.

The initial disturbance had already been reported to police, and Officer O’Sullivan and her FTO took the woman to the home to help her gather up her belongings and to potentially mediate the situation between her and a male at that location, KOVR reported.

At approximately 6:10 p.m., a gunman opened fire with what investigators now believe was a rifle, Sacramento Police Department Deputy Chief Dave Peletta said during a press conference early Thursday morning.

Officer O’Sullivan was hit by one of the rounds, and collapsed in a yard.

Her fellow officers tried to reach her, but the gunman continued to fire to keep them away, KOVR reported.

An armored vehicle arrived at the scene at approximately 6:54 p.m., and the officers inside retrieved Officer O’Sullivan and rushed the wounded officer to University of California - Davis Medical Center just five minutes later.

The woman the officers were assisting was not injured during the attack, and was immediately moved to safety.

The gunman continued firing from his barricaded position inside the home, and ultimately surrendered after a nearly eight-hour standoff, FOX News reported.

Officer O’Sullivan succumbed to her gunshot wounds late Wednesday night after she underwent surgery, according to The Sacramento Bee.

Chief Peletta confirmed the officer’s tragic death just after midnight.

“I’m sad to share with you tonight that we lost one of our own,” he told reporters. “She gave her young life while protecting our community.”

Officer O’Sullivan was hired by the Sacramento Police Department in January of 2018, and entered the police academy that July.

After her graduation in December, she began her phase training with the SPD, and was slated to begin patrolling on her own in the next several weeks, Chief Peletta said.

I really wish every major news station and their internet sites would post the reaction of these people so EVERYONE can see how completely worthless this tribe is and that they have nothing, absolutely nothing, worthwhile to offer society. By the way, this reaction is not unusual at all. In fact, I can't remember a single shooting, stabbing, or major fight in a black neighborhood where this type of thing didn't happen. You want to know why racism exists, watch this video. These people deserve to live in the shitholes they've created.

So tragic. It's not surprising that certain people of that tribe would behave like this, but it's always horrifying; all too many of them are beyond redemption. My heart aches for this fallen officer and her family.

If the "journalist" shot this cell phone video he sucks at his job, is it just me or was he only filming the officers in hopes to get one of them on video yelling at the a-holes taunting them? A real journalist would have swung that camera towards the taunters and captured their faces on video so the world could see who these obnoxious miscreants are! !
With this said Im pretty sure who exactly the are, welfare recipients!! These folks are lazy people whod rather live off the government free hand outs, yell & cry about their ancestors being slaves, demand more from everyone (but themselves) say everything other people do or have is due to racism, constantly blame police never the suspect, blame everyone, but themselves, for their living conditions, etc...I honestly (sorry to say) wish a stray bullet hit one of them square in the head maybe then, just maybe, theyd learn to STFU and stay away from active police scenes and learn to grow the fu## up!!! This group and the others nationwide who act this way give all others in their race a bad name and its disgusting.

Looks like the difference between Oakland and Sacramento is.....not very apparent. And people still ask me why I fled California like a scalded cat.

Truly a sick, twisted, violent segment of society who do not wish to assimilate to the general US and instead want to cause ongoing trouble, lawlessness, and terrorism ...even among themselves. Keep your distance and offer no sympathies. They bring their own disdain upon themselves and deserve all they receive. Let them implode over their own criminal ,anti social and uncivil actions and behaviors. Yet there are many who are good . My sympathies to those among them who are the exceptions but if you are ....then why do you not speak out to condemn these types who bring you all down?

What kind of fucked up human being does not care that another fellow human is dying in a shitty back yard, slowly bleeding out because help cannot get to her. This is so sickening, how do police officers put up with this every day. No wonder they either go crazy and kill these assholes or kill themselves. And even if you hate the police in general, how do you not conjure up some sympathy for this young rookie officer? They cannot be human.

Question for the police officers on here ... aren't refusing to backup when told, and saying "we have guns too" things that can get you arrested?

This is one of the most DISGUSTING and SICKENING displays I've ever seen in public and believe me I've seen a lot. These pieces of trash are a complete waste of oxygen roaming the street in the complete form of the DEVIL! In facing that stupidity, the PD won when they didn't react to ignorance. Way to go! May the officers family rest in peace because this officer IS A HERO! These pieces of trash will be judged by the only one who matters and when that happens (hopefully tomorrow) their dumbass answers won't be good enough and I am happy knowing that! 💙💙🙏

In my opinion, racist are the African american people, no not all are this way, but this video shows some pretty harsh words from bi standers within their community. I do not understand why there were emotionless words for a fallen person, who was there out to help. It breaks my heart that we have a society so divided. I am very disgusted by the way these women talking to these officers in the middle of a dangerous situation. The bystanders acted in a manner with little intellect..

BO started this HATRED & WAR on COPS! Along w/tearing down so much else in America. He will be exposed in these investigations. And even if he gets away w/his Crimes against America & Americans in this life, the God he doesn’t believe in, will have HIS Way w/him @ Judgement. And His ‘Judgement’ is Forever. I take some solace in knowing that.

Disgusting pos.... someone needs to stuff a dirty sock in her filthy mouth. How the police walked away from that is beyond me, I wouldn't have the will power, I would have wanted to shove her teeth down her throat. God bless your strength and will power to do your job and endure that crap while you are fighting for your lives against a crazed gunman. And these people wonder why they are so disliked, distrusted, why they are always getting shot!

Reparations? How about we have a do-over. Ship all the slave descendants back and see how that works. We're talking a few hundred years here. Without the slaves being sold to begin with by their own people, we wouldn't have slaves. Without them coming here as slaves their descendants would still be in Africa. We all came here via ship from somewhere, all had to work to live, clear land, raise crops, animals, cities. They were given nothing. NOTHING was free. Stop complaining about what happened hundreds of years ago and do something constructive to aid society and help build it up instead of acting like idiots with your hands out expecting everything without contributing nothing but problems.

I think that 911 should have a list of addresses to ignore of those emergency services hatters. Mainly the Police calls because of their wanting Cops killed and insist on acting childish with their name calling and threats. When the Police need there assistance at a seen and they refuse and they even go as far as helping the criminals get away. Let them call 911 and then let the Cops refuse. They live to bitch about the conditions of their neighborhoods and throw the blame on Law Enforcement and sit around with their thumbs up there butt and do nothing to help.

It's so unfortunate that because of lying media, lying politicians and lying domestic terrorist group BLM, black people now hate the police so much. Koodos to the police for doing their jobs and putting up with all the bullshit. And yes, mainstream media needs to start broadcasting videos like this one so everyone can see how these animals behave.

I live in Sacramento and this area of town needs to be bulldozed and all the thug scum that live there jailed. this area of town attaches nothing but drug dealers, drug addicts, gang bangers and those living off the taxpayers of California because they once had a back ache and can't or more truthfully won't work. Most of the properties in this area are Section 8 because that's the only way they can be rented. There are a few very decent people in that are and they are terrorized by the scum that dominates the area.
