    Sheriff Caught Saying 'I Love This Shit' After Cops Shoot an Unarmed Man

    Clio Chang
    Yesterday 2:59pm

    Oddie Shoupe, a Tennessee sheriff, is being sued for excessive force after a body camera caught him saying, “I love this shit. God, I tell you what, I thrive on it,” after officers shot and killed Michael Dial, an unarmed man, in his car.

    Dial’s widow, Robyn Spainhoward, has brought the suit against Shoupe. According to The Guardian, police tried to pull over Dial for driving with a suspended license, but he drove away. Dial was driving an old pickup truck with an attached trailer and the ensuing chase was low-speed. Deputies decided to try to push Dial’s vehicle off the road but Shoupe radioed in telling them to shoot Dial instead.

    As The Guardian wrote, “When a deputy had successfully nudged Dial off the road, Reserve Deputy Adam West, who was in pursuit in his own personal vehicle, fired three shots as the vehicle went down into a ditch. Dial died of a gunshot wound to the head.”

    Shoupe showed up to the scene after the shooting and another deputy’s body camera caught him saying, “They said ‘we’re ramming him. I said, ‘Don’t ram him, shoot him.’ Fuck that shit. Ain’t gonna tear up my cars.” He also laughed and said, “If they don’t think I’ll give the damn order to kill that motherfucker they’re full of shit.”

    This cop needs to be fired. This is why people support the BLM movement, our cops are out of control, they are an occupying force.

    Need to hear the deputy's version of what provoked him to fire. But it looked pretty cold blooded from the video.

    On a side note: Anybody else pick up that the chase had started "hours earlier in another county"....?? Sort of bizarre.

    How ironic that a tool LEO claimed would keep officers safe and protect LEO from frivolous lawsuits is actually being used to convict rouge cops.

    Now if we could just take the option for police officers to turn the camera on and off...we all would be in far better shape.

    It isnt how theyre supposed to work, but apparently its how things worked in this case.

    Shoupe showed up to the scene after the shooting and another deputy’s body camera caught him saying, “They said ‘we’re ramming him. I said, ‘Don’t ram him, shoot him.’ Fuck that shit. Ain’t gonna tear up my cars.” He also laughed and said, “If they don’t think I’ll give the damn order to kill that motherfucker they’re full of shit.”

    Fired, pension revoked, toss his ass in prison for a few years. He ordered an execution.

    The cop that pulled the trigger?
