Default Body Cam records last moments of Flagstaff, AZ Officer Tyler Stewart's life

What a way to start my day, makes me sick to my stomach. Be safe out there brothers and sisters. Don't let complacency kill you.

I saw this the other night. It's been very tragic here in AZ. By all accounts, this was a cop's cop, a very good guy. The pyscho/douchebag that killed him then put the gun to his own head. I cannot, for the life of me, understand how anyone could do this.

Is it complacency or are more cops today worried about the media fueled backlashes from any interaction that requires force?
I watched this and a few other videos of cops being killed by someone acting suspiciously or erratically over the last couple of days. Things go wrong so fast!
I couldn't do what you do simply because I would shoot everyone I encountered that didn't immediately comply..... yes even old ladies.

The former has always killed cops, the latter is certainly coming on strong. Experiencing a deadly force encounter is a nightmare for most police officers, but what the media/social media can do to a cop is far worse IMHO.

My son is a LEO and the same age with wife and almost 2yr old son. I pray for his and all their safety every day.

Man that just breaks my heart, prayers to the family

Just doing his job protecting the citizens of his town and a POS like that kills him.

I have LEO that works for me in my teen driving school, she and I were talking the other day and she told me the 2 deadliest things for cops to handle are traffic stops and domestic situations

In my opinion, we all can get lazy at work. I believe he just did his search later than he should have. Would the outcome have been different, maybe maybe not.

I also make it a rule never to talk to a suspect without backup. I am not being critical as every cop has gotten sloppy with officer safety and this time it was bad.

About a month ago, me and me partner were assisting a detective while he talked to a driver of a car that was used in a vehicle burglary, a couple days prior

We had the passenger get out lift up his shirt and sit back in the car.. While the detective was about to start searching the car, passenger starts reaching under the passenger's seat. We get him out and handcuffed and we find a stolen Glock 27 with a fully loaded 22 round magazine..he was a convicted felon also...

We should have checked the area around where the guy was sitting real quick also before letting the guy sit back in the vehicle. It almost cost us that day...those little incidents, are always unsettling.

Cracker, I guess this is probably why so many people get irritated when stopped and questioned by LEO. For most part I am sure most are not law breakers but from a LEO's standpoint I see why you have to be overly cautious and let them know YOU are in charge.

Guess it rubs most of us "honest citizens" the wrong way when we are treated like a criminal but to be honest just looking at that guy at first he looks harmless. We can see how that turned out

I was very hesitant to watch the clip.

I said before in another thread, my nephew is a Balto. City LEO in his 2nd year and was married this past summer. No kids.

Man I worry about him and all the others.

So sorry to hear this.

Key mistake by LEO. Perps hands in pockets. Let me see your hands should have been his first command from afar. If the perp pulled the gun at least the cop could have found cover and killed the guy.
The very first thing when coming to a scene is to see those hands. What a waste.

I think this was the key point: " Let me see your hands should have been his first command from afar".

Once he is 1 foot away, not much of a chance to get cover nor not much chance perp misses...
