About the author


  1. Why not just taze him after he denied your request to see hands after the third time. Good thing one single cop had his tazer out.

  2. Swear to god im the ONLY human being who can notice the difference immediately between a non marked bb gun compared to an actual handgun

  3. As a black man from Chicago Illinois" BLACK MEN'S COP'S are the coolest" just be honest with them 💯🇺🇸🙏🏿

  4. I've seen this cop a few times, he's always a stand-up guy. He should be training other cops for sure.

  5. This one's got me crying. I like this cop. I think the guy got it; you can see him thinking about what the cop is saying.

  6. This has got to be the best cop on Live PD, hes never afraid to show that he cares, he doesn't try to be a tough guy

  7. Textbook…! Less lethal option..good job recognizing that it was a Toy..dumb move by suspect to even carry a fake weapon..that's asking to die!

  8. Officer Ross is one first class human being.

    The dumbasses in the diner who pulled out their phones instead of beating feet out of there should have all been tasered too. They'd be the first people running to the media and suing the department if they got hit by a stray round. Potential Darwin Award winners.

  9. This is my first time seeing this officer in action and not only is his uniform and presentation outstanding, but he definitely has the calling of public service.

  10. In the time it took where they were asking to see his hands he was probably thinking if this is how he wants to truly go out, because if he did want to die he would have reached for his bb gun forcing the officers to shoot. Sad all round.

  11. "A pack of cigarettes and a sandwich" …and he allegedly will die in 3 months. F. I'm glad they gave him that one cigarette in the end. Kudos to the officer, if he's always like that I must admit he's a great man.

  12. give me the radio is a 10-63( hold all traffic) Emergency traffic only in Tulsa PD! David 301 is 3rd shift, Mingo Valley Division

  13. I love this cop. How amazing and compassionate. His message may not have gotten thru to the man but it got thru to us.
    I do have pity for the "criminal". To be that desperate… least he didnt take a hostage. Or start a gun fight. (Fake gun fight)

  14. He most likely has hep c. If he has been in prison and most likely he has substance abuse issues, which makes him way more likely to get hep c. Or he has liver cancer due to drinking alcohol. Alcohol like hep c can damage the liver to the point of cirrhosis. Poor man I hope he is fine and well. Good bless the cops and the man too.

  15. Ok they show the good thing they do but IRL they are so un helpful because they don’t do anything on stuff like threats smh

  16. If I got 6 months of oxygen left.
    And wanting to go out "the hard way"
    I'm ripping a bank heist.
    Not a sandwich and pack of smokes.

  17. When the cop talked about his children, that's the dominoes effect. Dont do it that way, man. Great way to handle the situation, cop.

  18. Why can’t we have more cops like this officer!? It’s obvious he has a heart, just the things he said to that man when he said he wanted to die showed that.

  19. I see no heroism. The cop turned it into HIS issue by saying it's not fair to him. Selfish. For those who say this cop has heart, it's not as big as you think. He cared more for himself than the suicidal man. Im different than 99% of you- I see the big picture. Nice try though, folks.

  20. You could tell that man never thought about what it would do to the cops to have to shoot him… hope he gets the help he needs.

  21. The officer potential saved this man's life by yelling out that the gun was a toy. He new his fellow officers were on edge thinking that the guy had a gun and was resisting arrest. With adrenaline going in a tense situation hard decisions have to be made in real time, this suspect could have easily been shot and killed for resisting arrest while in possession of a gun and it would have been justified. Great police work shown by this officer and the Tulsa PD.

  22. This officer said what everyone needs to hear! He has kids to go home to everyday! Best ever!!! He should have a reward for his actions and words! God bless you and your family Sir 🙏❣️

  23. 1. That cop is AWESOME.
    2. The bad guy only thinks about himself, as usual.
    3. The waitress in the black shirt is useless.

  24. This is a great example of why physicians assisted suicide should be a 50 State practice. Think about it: Would you rather succumb to cancer, or would you rather go peacefully in your sleep? Cancer sucks. The victim is the one who should have the last word on their fate.
