“He did the right thing, good job,” one user wrote.
#Mesa #Arizona This is nuts — A woman in a SUV followed a police cruiser for several blocks until the officer became suspicious and rerouted to Police HQ. Upon opening the HQ gate, the SUV rammed the police cruiser. The officer barrel-rolled out of the moving car and fired shots. pic.twitter.com/VFjG3xrT7P— Shane B.

However, former Spartanburg, South Carolina, police officer, SWAT team member and Navy veteran Cody Garrett, who runs the YouTube Channel: Donut Operator focusing on educational police content, was critical of the officer’s tactics.

Garrett’s channel prominently features breakdowns of police actions and officer-involved shootings, so The Western Journal reached out to ask him for his considerable professional opinion based on his years of experience. Garrett responded via Twitter message, “He bailed out of the only protection he had, WHILE IT WAS MOVING, to no cover where he could have been ran over by his own car, suspects car, or shot. Literally anything else would have been better tactics.” [ic_related] According to George, Carter was then taken into custody, treated for a single gunshot wound and taken to a nearby hospital. George said she faces charges of aggravated assault with a dangerous instrument (her vehicle) and third-degree criminal trespass. Court documents reported by KTVK-TV provided an insight into the suspect’s state of mind. [firefly_poll] “Carter told investigators she believes law enforcement, the military and a group she referred to as the Illuminati are trying to kill her,” the station reported. “She claims she was trying to get the officer’s attention to tell him this information. Carter also said she thought the officer knew who she was.” Court documents also stated Mesa police detained Carter in 2020 for mental health reasons. KTVK noted her prior convictions for drug and shoplifting charges. It is unknown at this time if the officer will be disciplined or charged in relation to the incident. However, KTVK reported he sustained minor scrapes and cuts on his elbows, hands and knees. George noted that “all information and evidence in this case will be turned over to the Maricopa County attorney’s office for review.” This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
