Bodycam Shows Suspect Shoot Officer 4 Times

Estill police officer Quincy Smith was shot four times on New Year’s Day in 2016, an event captured on video by a camera in his glasses that he bought himself.

Smith, responding to a suspicious person call on January 1, 2016, at the Charles Party Shop on U.S. 321 in Estill, spotted a man walking away from the store who fit the description of the man who the clerks said was snatching groceries from people’s hands. He ordered the man, later identified as Malcolm Antwan Orr, to stop. But Orr kept walking and talking on his cell phone. Smith then threatened Orr with a taser if Orr did not remove his hand from his jacket pocket.

With his cell phone still pressed to his ear, Orr pulled out a pistol and began firing at Smith, Stone said. The officer was struck 4 times. Smith suffered broken arm bones and a “life threatening” neck injury, the jury was told. Two of the eight rounds were fired at Smith as he lay on the ground, Stone said.

After a two-day jury trial, Malcolm Antwan Orr, 29, of Estill, was convicted of attempted murder and possession of a weapon during commission of a violent crime. On Wednesday, Orr was sentenced to 35 years in prison, 14th circuit solicitor McDuffie Stone.

Orr will be out in less than 20 years at which point he will then be a model citizen.

"The video was recorded by the officer's camera glasses that he bought himself on Amazon for $30"

 

"This week, the video helped convict Orr of attempted murder. He received the maximum sentence of 35 years in prison."

You don't think he will ACTUALLY serve his entire 35 year sentence, right? Right now people are serving less than half of their sentences up to the whole thing before being released on parole with almost all being released early. I guarantee he does a lot less than 35 years in prison after he finds God and becomes a model prisoner.

A good example of why it's so important to take some first aid/life support classes, you never know when you'll need it.
