Badass Cop Disarms Suicidal Man With A Rifle
A bloodcurdling encounter between a Georgia police officer and a rifle-wielding man who was intent on taking his own life was caught on dashcam footage and released by authorities for the world to see. The video shows a man standing outside of his pickup truck as Lieutenant Mark Hess calmly approaches. Suddenly, the man pulls out a rifle, so Hess responds by brandishing his own firearm and yelling, Put it down! Put it down! But the distressed man seems unfazed. He non-threateningly holds the rifle in his right hand while slowly approaching Hess and asking to be shot. Shoot me! Kill me! he screams. Their standoff lasts for nearly a minute. Finally, the suicidal man takes a step away from Hess but appears to lose his balance and drop the rifle. Thats when Hess springs into action, taking the man down with a rapid tackle and putting him in a choke hold until backup arrives. No word has surfaced as to what charges the man will face in relation to the unsettling incident.
