So this happened.
Andrew Robert Henson led Officer Robert Reynolds on a car chase in Oklahoma.
Eventually, Henson rolled his car and tried to escape on foot.
When the officer approached him, Henson said: “You’re gonna have to kill me, nigger” and raised his hand in the shape of a gun.
Bad move, dude.
Reynolds shot and killed the perp on the spot.
Oh, by the way: the bad guy in this case is white.
And it doesn’t look like Reynolds is a “nigger.”
The incident happened last month, but Oklahoma cops are just now releasing the bodycam footage.
Take a guess.
Hint: It probably has something to do with the color of Henson’s skin.
The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation said that the incident started after Reynolds stopped Henson in the city of Wagoner late on June 7 for a traffic violation.
During the stop, Reynolds checked Henson’s name for outstanding warrants and found he was wanted for burglary in Mississippi.
As Reynolds approached Henson’s car and tried to arrest him he fled, leading officers out of the city and back again as he attempted to run them off the road.
After Henson drove at the deputies, they fired several shots at him but did not strike him.
Henson then made his way back to where the pursuit started before ramming a police cruiser twice and rolling his own vehicle.
It is at that point that the footage begins, showing Henson fleeing his overturned car before being gunned down.
Reynolds has been put on paid administrative leave while the district attorney investigates the shooting to decide whether the use of deadly force was justified.
And here’s the footage:
