During the traffic stop by the obese guy that survived center mass rounds from the LEO's .357, and yet was able to murder the officer with one shot from a .22?

I can't seem to find it with a search, wanted to share it with people who could not believe the story

EDIT: Nevermind, found it, thanks

I believe the weapon used against was a .223 caliber Ruger. Both died I believe too, just the BG lived long enough to kill the officer.

It is so sad; the officer carried a large caliber and put them where he was suppose to and still had no effect. That's just not "fair".

I seem to recall a video of an officer who shot a great big fat black man with a .45 several times in the chest but was shot with a .22 in the arm and had it perforate his vitals several several times. Fat guy was sitting calmly when help arrived despite being shot many times COM. Made me want a .22...

That would be Trooper Coates.

Trooper Coates was indeed the Trooper's name, and he served with the South Carolina State Police/ Highway Patrol.

He was shot by a 22lr in the armpit, through the aeorta.

The shooter lived and if I'm not badly mistaken he made a full recovery.
