** (Disclaimer: This video content is intended for educational and informational purposes only) **

An Apopka man faces charges of Attempted Murder of a Law Enforcement Officer after fleeing a traffic stop Saturday morning and dragging a Seminole County Deputy with his vehicle. Saturday morning, near the intersection of County Road 46A and Interstate 4, Deputy Aaron Blais pulled over 38-year-old Rocky M. Rudolph, Jr. on suspicion of having illegal window tint on his SUV. During the process of questioning the motorist, Deputy Blais smelled the odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle.

Rudolph became irate as Deputy Blais was further questioning him about the suspected marijuana. Deputy Blais then drew his service weapon as Rudolph was ignoring commands to show his hands, while also trying to prevent the suspect from placing the vehicle in drive. At that time, Rudolph drove off with Deputy Blais hanging on to the window while reaching for the weapon.

Deputy Blais continued to order Rudolph to stop the vehicle and show his hands. Rudolph temporarily stopped the vehicle, but continued to ignore the commands to show his hands and to put his vehicle in park. Rudolph again repeatedly reached for the deputy’s gun while again accelerating on to the I-4 west-bound on-ramp into traffic, further endangering his life. Deputy Blais then fired his service weapon in an attempt to avoid being seriously injured or killed. After approximately 200 yards, the vehicle veered to the right, and Deputy Blais was thrown to the ground.

Blais was transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries and later released. Rudolph abandoned the SUV and ran from the area. After an hours-long search involving multiple jurisdictions, he was located in a vehicle driven by a family member and taken into custody. He had suffered a gunshot wound to the leg. Rudolph was transported to a local hospital where he remained as of Sunday morning. Upon release, he will be booked into the John E. Polk Correctional Facility on multiple charges including Attempted Murder of a Law Enforcement Officer.

Inside the suspect’s SUV, investigators located a handgun reported stolen out of Seminole County in 2016. “This was a very dangerous situation. Our deputy’s life was put at risk by a career criminal who had no regard for his well-being,” said Sheriff Dennis Lemma. “I applaud Deputy Blais’s professionalism and dedication to duty.” The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is now investigating the officer-involved shooting.

Was the family member charged with harboring a fugitive? I mean, come on. How does he explain a bullet wound to the leg?

Kind of sounds like they were a little clan known to the local cops already.

I was laughing over how the perp was whining and crying like a little bitch before he tried to flee. Exactly how did he think that any of that was going to end well for him?

OTOH, with a gun in the vehicle and a criminal record, he might have thought he had nothing to lose in the state of Florida. An extra 10 years in prison is about what it'll cost him to have resisted arrest to that extent. He'll get something like an extra month in prison for every minute he evaded a lawful arrest.

From the YouBoob comments: "According to WFTV, Rudolph Jr. has 15 felony convictions, eight misdemeanor convictions, 32 felony charges, and 22 misdemeanor charges."

A fine upstanding citizen.

So was there marijuana in the car or was that a false pretense for a further search?

I thought I heard the cop was dragged for a hundred yards or so. But if the cop is voluntarily hanging on to the car, is it still attempted murder?

There is attempted murder, but cops too frequently place themselves in dangerous situations in cases like this, and then kill the person to prevent them from injuring or killing the cop due to the dangerous circumstance the cop placed himself in.

I remember the case of a cop killing a woman because he jumped onto the hood of the car and then decided to kill her because she wouldn't stop.

Did you even look at this guy in the video? Of course there was ganja. And a gun in the possession of a felon. Who made the mistake of driving with overtinted windows. His windows measured 3%. Even the back windows of limos are no darker than 5%.

You'll never find a prosecutor bringing a case or a jury to convict a cop for being dedicated to completing an arrest. Once a uniformed cop says, "you're under arrest", the public loses all sympathy for the alleged victim for almost anything that follows.

I take that as a concession there was no marijuana.

Tinted windows, fine. But I'm pretty sure that is not an arrestable offense.

A guy I'd like to hang out with, absolutely not.

He had a gun with a history? Apparently, but that was not known to the cop at the time.

Was this guy in fear for his life at at least one point in the video, yes, it sure seems it to me. In my book, that is not an excuse for lethal action only cops are allowed to employ.

That's pretty much how it works, when when/if a cop escalates a situation to the point where innocent people are gunned down. Like that simon-says killing.

Nice try. But no, this was a real killing in real life.

This bears repeating because there is a comparison. In the simon-says murder (yes in my book it was murder, albeit due to the combined effort of at least 2 cops, both of which can individually claim they did what they were supposed to as in any similar killing effected by the combined effort of multiple people, all are prosecuted).

The guy was both intoxicated and terrified. And he was gunned down, killed, because he didn't perform according to police expectations while in that state of terror.

Cops CAN and DO terrify people, and holding those people accountable for things they do while in that terrified state of mind, while NOT holding cops accountable when they also claim to be in "fear for their lives" is a double standard. That it's one acceptable to our justice system ain't right. And then there's the "resisting arrest" people get charged with for things they do or don't do after they get tased, which causes people to lose control of their bodies. That's a funny one too.

Original reports for the cop in the present case was that he was "dragged" for a hundred yards. But if he voluntarily grabbed onto the car and hung on, I'm not sure "dragged" is the operative word. That will have to be a factual determination by a jury if it ever gets that far, which it probably won't. And if it does, yeah, he'll probably get convicted because he looks like and probably is a druggie.

That's unknown. If you watch the video, you'll see that he crashed his big SUV only about 100 yards after he shook off the cop into the left ditch. That was when he fled on foot, possibly taking his stash with him.

At any rate, he'll be tried for attempted murder, resisting arrest, etc. They can always bring more charges for other stuff later if they want. Chances are that he'll take the plea bargain offered for 15-20 years because he is obviously a career criminal.

You're in a tiny minority in seeing it that way. The public overwhelmingly supports a cop making an arrest once he yells, "you're under arrest" and pulls his gun. Even more so if the perp is trying to grab the officer's gun. The public does not want to see anyone resisting the police at that juncture. They'll side with the cop, every single time.

My point is that the "I feared for my life" narrative is a justification for use of lethal force ONLY allowed by police against the citizenry. To my knowledge, it has NEVER been allowed as a defense by a citizen against the police with the exception of extremely rare cases where the citizen did not know that the person they used lethal force against was a police officer.

Specifically, there was at least one case of a homeowner who opened fire on police doing a no-knock raid who was not charged, but only because it was determined he had no reasonable basis for knowing they were cops breaking into his home.

But if a citizen is in fear for his life due to a cop pointing a weapon at him and acting erradically, he's in a situation where if he acts on that fear and uses lethal force against the cop, he's screwed. And if doesn't, he may be screwed as well.

It is a double standard. There is a legal presumption that citizens much always assume that a cop will never use lethal force unjustly, and the raw fact is that cops have killed innocent people that posed no threat to them whatsoever, and in cases where they had no reasonable basis to believe they were in danger of getting shot by police. And if people can be shot by police when they least expect it, that certainly would create precedent for an "I feared for my life" defense by a citizen against the police.

You are expected by law and custom to submit to a lawful arrest.

And a lawful shooting?

Can a civilian be certain that an imminent shooting by a cop will be lawful?

The Australian woman shot by the Somali cop?

The Texas raid that resulted in gun fire on the couple that was apparently framed as drug dealers? Of course they won't be charged with attempted murder because they are already dead so it won't work well as a test case for when using lethal means to eliminate the threat posed by a cops might be permitted.

A lawful shooting - which this was - is not something you submit to. It is the force of the law, expressed violently if you refuse to submit to arrest.

Every police force in history embodies this principle. It is the long arm of the government, the rule of laws.

If you want an anarchy where such things never happen, good luck with that.

The simon-says killing was deemed lawful, even though the victim was doing his best to submit to arrest.

I can't imagine how you can say this after seeing the video.

I assume you've been reduced to outright lying at this point. No other conclusion is possible.

When you've seen the video where this potato is trying to grab the cop's gun while the cop is trying to arrest him and then assert that the "victim" was trying to submit to arrest by grabbing at the cop's gun as he attempted to flee, you've departed from any sort of factual discussion.

You may as well just admit that you crave a lawless anarchy with no police whatsoever. Because that is your effective position if you don't want cops to enforce any laws. Or maybe you just don't want cops to enforce the laws that you disagree with.

I specifically referred to the "Simon Says" killing a couple years back where an intoxicated and terrified man in a hotel was given a long series of instructions from one police officer about how he needed to do all kinds of gymnastics, and at one point where he instinctively went to pull up his shorts which likely were in need of pulling up due to said attempts to comply, was blown away by one Mr. "You're Fucked" cop who was tried but acquitted of murder because yes, this terrified guy "reached for his waistband" in the middle of all that and in so doing, failed win the game of "Simon-Says" an forfeited his life for doing so.

The cop suffered only a firing after it was discovered he had this "You're Fucked" emblazoned on his M-16 (not admitted as evidence in the case).

I assume you've been reduced to outright lying at this point. No other conclusion is possible.

Have a nice day, TC.

This Cop Is Getting $2,500 a Month Because Killing an Unarmed Man in a Hotel Hallway Gave Him PTSD

Government is in the last resort the employment of armed men, of policemen, gendarmes, soldiers, prison guards, and hangmen.
The essential feature of government is the enforcement of its decrees by beating, killing, and imprisoning.
Those who are asking for more government interference are asking ultimately for more compulsion and less freedom.

He was given conflicting and confusing commands during the encounter.

During the response, police ordered Shaver, who was unarmed, out into the hallway on his knees and ordered him to crawl in their direction while keeping his hands up, and they continued to bark confusing orders at him. As Shaver, clearly terrified, attempted to comply, at one point he gestured behind himself, possibly to pull up his pants, and Brailsford immediately opened fire, killing him.

Now the murderous thug gets $2,500 a month for supposed PTSD.

How do you explain that?

Never mind - don't bother, you always have some excuse for trigger-happy assholes like Brailsford.

Maybe he was hearing conflicting and confusing commands during the encounter.

"An autopsy report found that Shaver was intoxicated, with a blood- alcohol level over three times the legal driving limit, which police stated may have contributed to his confused response to their commands."

So that's the cop's fault?

Obviously, to some people, it is always the cop's fault. Because they're just cop-haters and demonstrate their bias in every single thread on the topic.

Notice how they are trying to change the subject from the cop dealing with a potato thug resisting legal arrest. They want to change the subject to other cases, ones that they think they can use to support their general principle that All Cops Are Evil.
