A violent criminal who tried to murder a Florida cop has been sentenced to life in prison after shooting the law enforcement officer four times. Now, video footage from inside the courtroom has gone viral after the cop showed up to deliver a special going away gift for the smug thug.
Kevin Rojas was 19 when he shot the undercover police officer three times during a traffic stop. The officer was hit once in the face and was critically injured, according to the Florida Times-Union.
The officer was taking his son to school when he pulled over Rojas. He returned fire but did not hit the suspect.
In October, Rojas was found guilty of numerous felonies, including attempted first-degree murder, grand theft auto, attempted manslaughter, two counts of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer.
On Wednesday, he was sentenced to life in prison. The wounded officer, who was not identified, served in the Army before joining the police force. He called Rojas a coward while reading the victim impact statement.
“I will take those bullets instead of a fellow officer and an innocent bystander,” the officer said, according to the Times-Union. “When I brought the fight back to you, you ran like a coward.”
The officer then produced a tube of K-Y Jelly and told Rojas he would “need a lot” of it in prison, according to local reports.
When questioned by a judge in a 30-minute hearing about the stunt, the officer refused to comment, the Times-Union reported.
This move made by the cop will never get old!
The officer’s gift received mixed reviews from social media users. While many applauded the officer for being brave enough to confront the man who attempted to kill him, others criticized him for taunting a criminal, despite the fact that the thug tried to murder the policeman and his son.
