Tenn. Sheriff Caught On Tape Saying I Love This S---' After Telling Deputies To Shoot Unarmed Man

A Tennessee sheriff is facing a lawsuit after he was taped telling deputies to shoot a man during a car chase instead of risking damage to patrol cars by ramming the suspect.

"They said 'we’re ramming him,'" White County Sheriff Oddie Shoupe said on tape after the suspect Michael Dial, was killed, according to The Guardian. "I said, 'Don’t ram him, shoot him.' F--- that shit. Ain’t gonna tear up my cars."

Dial's widow is suing Shoupe in federal court, alleging excessive use of force in the killing of her husband, the Guardian reported.

After Dial was shot, Shoupe arrived on the scene, where his comments were picked up by a body camera worn by one of the deputies.

"I love this shit," Shoupe said, according to The Guardian. "God, I tell you what, I thrive on it."

1. Is him 'loving it' illegal?

I'm also fine with the sheriff conserving public property.

4. Unprofessional for sure.

That’s about as far as it goes though. Perhaps the lawsuit is simply to have him step down.

5. A fitting testimonial as to the mentality of too many LEOs wearing a badge today.

Not all of course but way too many.

Not our daddy's LEOs anymore...

6. Ive been in the game along enough to know NOT to wax poetic about good ol days.

If only you knew about the things that occurred in a time before recordings. The accountability of media, dash cameras, and especially body cameras has done nothing but improve the profession.
