Dashcam Captures Officer’s Harrowing Encounter With Gunman

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditmailFacebooktwittergoogle_plusredditmail

The release of the video comes after 20-year-old Malik Wortham of Springhill pleaded guilty Tuesday to attempted first-degree murder in exchange for a sentence of 25 years in prison. It happened during a late-night traffic stop outside the main gate of Barksdale Air Force Base back on April 16, when Wortham pointed a .25 caliber semi-automatic pistol out of the passenger window just inches from the face of Bossier City Police Sgt. Kenneth Johnson. The entire harrowing incident was captured on Johnson’s dash cam and was played for a 12 person jury during Sgt. Johnson’s testimony.

According to a release that accompanied the release of the video from the DA’s office, Johnson recalled hearing the gun “click” as Wortham pulled the trigger twice in rapid succession. The officer immediately drew his weapon and returned fire three times, striking Wortham in the head and wounding him. Wortham’s gun, which was fully loaded, failed to fire both times. At the conclusion of the officer’s testimony, Wortham took the plea deal offered by prosecutors. The sentence was imposed by Judge Jeff Thompson and the jury was dismissed. Wortham faced up to 50 years in prison if he didn’t take the deal was found guilty by jury trial.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Santi Parks with assistance from Richard Ray. “This incident is a sobering reminder that police officers put their lives on the line every day to keep us all safe” commented Parks. “We appreciate how difficult and dangerous their job can be and are glad that Sgt. Johnson was not killed that night.” “Anyone who is willing to point a gun at a police officer and pull the trigger needs to be put away for a long time,” added Bossier/Webster District Attorney Schuyler Marvin, “I am pleased with this resolution and am proud of how quickly and aggressively our office brought this matter to a conclusion.” Wortham, who was represented by Randal Fish and Kerry Hill with the Public Defender’s Office, was remanded to custody to begin serving his sentence.

    Just another example of how #blackLIESmatter?

    • bLAHHH

      I mean cops are still killing black people for no reason…and idk if you noticed but there were like 7 back to back cop shootings..where white men killed cops for noooo damn reason. White males kill more cops than black males…so you’re a hypocrite sir. Black lives matter…yes…cops still kill innocent black men for no reason..and get away with it..look at Walter Scott, Philando Castille, Alton Sterling.

      • joe800

        There were 16 black men killed by police who appear to have been unarmed. 16. There were over 500 black men murdered in Chicago BY OTHER BLACK MEN….the problem isnt with the police. Its with the n1ggers.
        Besides, typically your information is all wrong..Alton Sterling had a gun, so did Philando Castille.

        • bLAHHH

          You are beyond stupid…did u know white men kill other white men just as much as black men kill black men….u cracka and u racist….the problem is with u racists….and so what if criminals kill people….police officers murdering people should never happen…that is unacceptable i dont expect any less from a criminal..white trash or black…..but from an officer there should be zero murders especially accidental ones when they are trained…and..philando had a gun and he notified the officer and was complying with the officer…philando didnt draw it or intimidate the officer…he had a right to have that gun on him just like me or u just like u racist white folk…and he was shot even though he told the officer i have a concealed csrry permit please dnt be scared…….alton sterling got tackled and tazed..didnt even draw the gun and when he was shaking from the currents going through his body he was shot.what r u talking about dude do u know anytjing?…white people kill more cops every year than black people look it up u cracka….so why are black people neing accidentally killed because cops think we are than you murderers…..when u guys are the ones cops should be afraid of…..it is because some cops are racist….just like u are

            N1gger. Heres the numbers.

            https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/national/police-shootings-2016/

            Sort the list by race, weapon. See what we all know. Police are killing more unarmed n1gs than white guys, It’s all lies.
            You can’t even begin to try and lecture me about white guys committing crime when Chicago is all you need to look at to see the truth. Police arent murdering people. Theyre shooting animals. Wild, dangerous out of control animals.
            I showed you the numbers and details. Read it or have a white guy read it to you.
            Youre an illiterate chimp. You couldnt possibly be able to analyze the UCR Data let alone read and comprehend the words.
            N1gger culture is sick. It values the wrong things.
            “Boi.”? …jesus you people are a cancer….

          • bLAHHH

            LOL you’re so stupid you think all black people live in chicago ok you pseudo-intelligent racist hillbilly cracker/Honkey.

            You really think you’re right here…..and I got my stats and numbers straight from the people in charge of putting crime reports together….the FBI you idiot….
            https://ucr.fbi.gov/crime-in-the-u.s/2013/crime-in-the-u.s.-2013/tables/table-43

            what do you mean nigger culture you imbecile….one part of black people doesn’t represent the whole don’t you know that by now you seasoned cracker/idiot..idk how you crackers can be so old and let 20-30 year olds outsmart and outhink you all lol….

            also if you think that I have the right to say you’re Cracker/KKK/Racist/Honkey/ Culuture definitely has very deep fucked up issues LOL

            i’m illiterate…dumb ass cracker i’m a triple major in physics, computer science, and mathematics ! I debate for my university in tournaments, and i’m black LOL and i come from a place just like chicago..grew up like that…..someone like me..with intelligence….with ambition…lived in chicago….dumb ass i was nothing like some of the people around me … but people like you seeing me and judging me keep people like me down…and that’s why you’re filled with nothing but disgusting hate….and you’re just a disgusting … cracker who hates on people LOL pitiful way to live buddy

          • joe800

            Above all: Youre a n1gger. You went from ‘boi’ and other n1g slang to cleaning up your writing. You make my point, when youre trying to be n1g hard you write like a n1gger. When you become mr physics major it changes. And youre a college student like I’m a dolphin.
            Thats the point about n1gger culture. You have to put on a show for your monkey ‘niggas’ so they dont tease you about ‘selling out’ but then expect us to look at you as equals.
            Chicago is a microcosm for the rest of the US and n1gger communities. A college debate team member would understand that. You dont have to scratch a n1gger too deep to find the ghetto thug inside. All you people act like animals. Just because Lincoln wrote that youre human doesnt make it so.
            The UCR is not as up to date as the WashPo study and it includes data the UCR doesnt. Read it or don’t, makes no difference, I KNOW I’m right.
            I love and respect those that earn and deserve it. Problem with n1gs is that they dont earn anything. Let me guess, you got a 500 on your SAT’s but got a scholarship.

          • bLAHHH

            LOL
            ABOVE ALL: you’re an angry..bitter white man who feels so insecure about black people that he has to emanate hatred…ALSO I CAN TALK HOWEVER I WANT YOU DUMB FUCKING CUNT/RACIST/WHITE DEVIL/HONKEY.
            I mean YOU DON’T HAVE TO SCRATCH A WHITE MAN TOO DEEP TO FIND HIS INNER CRACKER/RACIST/HYPOCRITE.
            Devil get behind thee…you think you’re so high and mighty and you think you have a point here…..I called you boi..and other “slang” because you started saying RACIST SHIT without provocation…racist shit like niggers etc etc you dumb fuck..you’re so focused on what it means to be black you completely missed that you’re worst than any black person you can possibly imagine in your feeble, wicked TINY mind. You are the hypocrite..the dirt and scum of this earth…most of this world disagrees with how you think and you’re a dying breed you peace of racist shit.

            LOL i don’t want to belong to your racist…white devil world..i have my own filled with beautiful black people…and beautiflu white people who would probably laugh you into the dark corner from wince you came. Shut your trap white racist man…you belong in hell not here.

            You are a serpent in human form, that’s why you hide your identity online because you know if you were to go public with everything you just said…you would be on the news and probably fired and back in the trailer park with ur fellow klansmen LOL and you tell me i’m the one that won’t be accepted…please lol me and the rest of the sensible world laughs at your kind pretending to possess some kind of power..some kind of majority….you’re weaker than ever….and I AM BLACK AND PROUD..AND LOUD..AND HOSTILE TOWARDS RACISTS LIKE YOU….I’M A BLACK MAN BABY AND THAT EATS YOU UP FROM THE INSIDE OUT..THAT I GOT A HIGHER SCORE THAN YOU ON THE SAT…AM MORE SUCCESSFUL THAN YOU IN THIS LIFE…BECAUSE I AM SMARTER AND MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN YOU….NOW GO CRAWL IN THE HOLE YOU DUG YOURSELF FROM BEING A DUMB RACIST….AND WITHER AWAY THIS WORLD DOESN’T WELCOME YOU ANYMORE BOI.

          • joe800

            A) I am angry and bitter at what MY white forefathers creation has become under the weight of parasitic mudpeople like you.
            B) My identity is just as private as yours.
            C) You dont belong in my white world, go back to your ancestral jungle and live like your people have and still do.. completely un-evolved.
            D) The world sides with me. shitskins like you are universally loathed by all cultures and people. Just look at history. I’m welcome everywhere, (except the n1gger ghettos where I’d be attacked just for having clean clothes) but not you. You arent. Except africa, where they eat albinos to gain their juju.
            E) I can’t be fired cause I sign the paychecks. Big ones too. Mines bigger though, being the the boss, the owner, the reason for the company in the first place. Oh, and I did it without the benefits of minority owned business loans, minority preference government contracts, minority deferred tax incentives – just regular white hard work and sacrifice.
            F) You arent more successful nor smarter, you havent had to be because you have the magic race card.
            G) Things are gonna change. Not for me, I’m white and I’ve earned what I’ve accomplished and know how to do it again if I want. Youre a monkey with pants on.

          • bLAHHH

            Lol you really think anyone wants to be in your world..what world? the world where you’re a racist..in secret….LOL wowwwww i must be missing a lot…having to hide my identity and be secretly racist the kkk numbers are diminishing…most white people would listen to you and shun you from their communities…quit pretending ur so mighty boi…you’re on the run and banished from your own world…your sons, daughters, grandkids, nieces and nephews probably despise you and hate being around you for ur horrible ideas……you probably live deep in the woods where you have to live among bears and deer like the animal you are because human society rejects ur existence……I think i’m very happy in metropolitan cities interacting with white and black…
            BTW….MY GIRLFRIEND IS WHITE AND I’VE DATED TOO MANY WHITE GIRLS 🙂 AND THEY LOVE ME LOL SOOOO WHITE PEOPLE LOVE ME……I’M SURE IF I SHOW HER AND ANY WHITE PERSON I COME ACROSS YOUR MESSAGES THEY’LL PROBABLY CURSE THE DAY YOU WERE BORN LOL WHICH IS PROBABLY BACK IN 1945….IDK WHENEVER IT WAS POPULAR TO BE RACIST…NOWADAYS BOI UR A DYING BREED….SO DO US A FAVOR AND QUIT YELPING AND JUST GO QUIETLY 🙂 BYE

            TO IGNORANT RACIST INSECURE WHITE MAN SCARED TO DEATH OF MY EXISTENCE

          • joe800

            The UCR is out of date. Its not an active compilation its historical. And it doesnt compile the same data sets as the WashPo is doing.
            If you really think white people are shunning me then explain the election?
            I live in a couple different places depending on the time of year chimpo. I have a very nice home on a lake in an expensive East Coast State and a home in a very exclusive town in coastal Mexico. In fact, Mickey Hart was a neighbor as is Jamie Hyneman. Ive done well for myself despite what you see as my weaknesses.
            I too have a beautiful white wife who isnt fvcked up in the head though. Good luck with a woman who marries a black guy.

          • bLAHHH

You’re so determined to take my accomplishments and shame me but listen boi….i’m flying through the world…and i don’t want to be among you..in fact when i get to the top…i’m gonna build an army of conscious intelligent black people….who only succeed and do good in the world…..just so you can sit on your computer and be an angry..bitter….hateful white devil 🙂 stay racist Joe…pretend to have power and hiss at people who aren’t white because that’s all you can do…..i’m still going to graduate BOI.

          • bLAHHH

            That’s like me saying Adam Lanza the white boi who shot up that poor elementary school….
            or James Holmes who shot up that movie theater in Aurora…
            or the countless other white men LIKE YOU..who commit mass shootings….
            represent the whole of white america….thus…..THE PROBLEM WITH CRACKER CULTURE IS YALL ARE A BUNCH OF VIOLENT..ENTITLED…RACIST…INSECURE….PPL WHO DEFINE THEMSELVES THROUGH THE DISPARAGING OF OTHER PEOPLE….VIOLENT BREED OF PEOPLE WHO TRANSCEND ANY KIND OF THUGGERY IMAGINABLE BECAUSE THEY DO IT WITH A HYPOCRITICAL EYE TOWARDS ANY ONE ELSE’S CRIME AND EXCUSE THEMSELVES AS PURE…..and all you do is get angry at people who aren’t like you and take your anger out on innocent people INCLUDING WOMEN AND KIDS…..

            these mass shootings are a microcosm for the rest of white america 🙂 a very insightful lenses to what your culture is really about….pillaging…and plundering…murdering..and taking….all the while pointing ur fingers at others for way lesser crimes.

          • joe800

            No. Youre wrong. The number of people killed in mass shootings by white guys over the past 10 years till doesnt approach what you monkeys have accomplished in Chicago in JUST ONE YEAR. You know it, I know it. I dont go out of my way to engage with scum like you, but when I am engaged, I dont shy away or bow my head. Im not afraid. Not of anyone. Especially sh1t people like you. I keep to myself until some a$$hole, black or white doesnt let me.

          • bLAHHH

            That concludes my rant boi. I don’t need to talk to ur kind anymore….ur a devil…an evil that doesn’t belong on this earth..you belong among the likes of Hitler, Saddam Hussein, Joseph Stalin, Castro, Mao Zedong, Heinrich Himler, Satan himself LOL you belong with those people. Hey no matter how you view it boi….i’m here and my people many of us millions of us….empowered intelligent black people who don’t need to hurt or harass white people because we’re very confident in our worth and our beauty as a people….millions of us exist boi….and we’re stronger than ever….cracker/satan/white devil/racist/honkey….goodbye you can talk all you want i’m turning off notifications from you..don’t need to hear a dog yelping or a piece of scum withering away.

          • joe800

            Funny tho, how n1gs still only account for 12-13% of the US pop when every other minority group continues to grow. Perhaps the fact that you knuckle draggers kill more of each other, that even you can’t stand your own kind and murder each other at at rate that exceeds every other race…

          • bLAHHH

            What’s so funny is how many white people are on welfare, are on financial aid, how many people have scholarships that they do not deserve…..u don’t respect all who deserve anything…you only respect white people and that’s all there is to you boi. You’re just a racist and being black is enough for you to discredit and hate people…..and I’M BLACK AND PROUD..I’M FROM THE GHETTO..ALL MY WHITE FRIENDS KNOW THAT AND THEY LOVE THAT ABOUT ME….I’M FROM THE GHETTO BUT I’M TUTORING THE WHITE PEOPLE FROM THE SUBURBS IN ADVANCED MATHS AND COMPUTER CODING CLASSES…I LITERALLY GOT PAID THOUSANDS BY WHITE PARENTS WHITE PROFESSIONALS TO TEACH WHITE PEOPLE….I DON’T NEED YOUR RACIST VALIDATION I GET TOO MUCH OF THAT ALREADY…..BUT I DONT’ EVEN NEED THAT EITHER BECAUSE I’M SO GOOD AT WHAT I DO AND PEOPLE KNOW IT AND RESPECT ME ACCORDINGLY….I’m so happy i’m not you and i don’t live with you or around you or about you….Trust me man it’s a blessing more than anything else 🙂

          • joe800

            LOL!..yeah. sure. You live around people just like me. They just dont say it to you because they’re conditioned to be cowards and stay silent. But be assured, they hate you too. They hate your loud violent outbursts, they hate your obnoxious behavior and music, they hate what you do to a neighborhood after you infect it.

          • bLAHHH

            now be gone white devil….the world is infinitely better without you….stay confined to your spot deep in the most remote and darkest corner of the woods….
            so hypocritical you think you can point out how i’m masquerading in ur space but will be exposed…when you’re masquerading in your very own space and are trying ur best to hide ur racism because you know how unacceptable ur views are….even fox news even the trump administration disassociates with you Alternative right and Klu Klux Klan ppl LOL ur alone white racist devil….and that’s how it’s going to be for the rest of ur life….keeping ur racist views in your tiny mind and to ur self because nobody will accept you for what you are…. a serpent

        • bLAHHH

          Why did you leave out Walter Scott?

          • joe800

            I left out Scott because he wasnt armed. But he wasnt innocent. AND he fvcking ran! He couldnt be a man and deal with whatever sh1t he created that made him have a warrant. Only Stupid n1gs run. They run and then they turn and shoot.
            Your comment is all 100% n1gger lies. Keep it up, you’ll see what happens.
