Officer Very Smoothly And Very Effectively Gives A Man A Darwin Award (Video)

Naperville police released a graphic video Tuesday that shows a veteran Naperville police officer fatally shooting a 28-year-old Naperville man who came at him with a hatchet on June 3.

Police said the officer was conducting a traffic stop around 11 a.m. on June 3 near the intersection of Bond Street and McDowell Road when another vehicle pulled up and a man armed with a hatchet got out and charged the officer.

The officer, who is a 22-year veteran with the department, fired six shots, striking 28-year-old Edward C. Samaan, police said.

“I’ve just been attacked, shots fired, shots fired. Don’t move, don’t move,” the officer can be heard saying. “Send a medic!”

WATCH (warning: graphic video)

The officer holds the shot man at gunpoint while waiting for police backup and paramedics to arrive.

The man, identified Edward C. Samaan by the DuPage County Coroner’s Office, was taken to an area hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The cause and manner of death remain pending further investigation, including toxicology reports, the coroner’s office said in a statement.

“Any loss of life is tragic, and our thoughts are with the family of the deceased,” Arres said.

The department began issuing body cameras to its officers last month with full implementation expected by the end of June.

Well, this man was perfect for getting the Darwin award!

The Darwin Awards are a tongue-in-cheek honor that originated in Usenet newsgroup discussions around 1985. They recognize individuals who have supposedly contributed to human evolution by selecting themselves out of the gene pool by dying or becoming sterilized via their own actions.

Loss of life is tragic but this guy paid the price for his stupidity. Wouldn’t be at all surprised to discover the deceased was a member or follower of the leftist terrorist gangs.

Why is his face blocked out? F him. Just cruising around waiting to kill someone. Imagine if the guy was just a civilian and unarmed, he would easily have wound up dead.

So you see, we need to take all guns away, so some POS can kill us with an axe.

I wonder what his best case scenario was for this situation? If things would have worked out according to the plan, what would that look like?

Good shooting! No telling how many more crimes in the future that alert Police Officer prevented, and at great savings to the tax paying public.

Congratulations to the officer for being alert and able to survive an attack from a deranged individual, that many might not. I note that when the attacker’s car stopped, the officer placed his hand on his weapon just in case – and so he was prepared for what otherwise would have been a nasty surprise. If he had not been alert he might have been the dead one.

Any body crazy or just stupid enough to charge an armed man, cop or not gets what they deserve.

He was planning on surviving and getting rich from law suits… being a miss understood person? “I just wanted to stop police brutality against a fellow motorist”
