Constable Oddie Shoupe really did not understand that the body camera was still videotaping him. Ana Kasparian, Mark Thompson, Maytha Alhassen, the hosts of The Young Turks, simplify. Tell us what you assume in the comment section listed below.

" A Tennessee sheriff is being demanded making use of excessive pressure after he was recorded flaunting he had informed officers to shoot a male rather than risk damaging police vehicles by ramming him off the roadway.
" They claimed 'we're ramming him,'" Sheriff Oddie Shoupe of White County stated on tape in the aftermath of the murder of suspicious Michael Dial. "I said, 'Do not ram him, fire him.' Fuck that shit. Ain't going to tear up my autos."
Shoupe showed up on the scene quickly after cops had actually fired Dial at the verdict of a low-speed chase, clearly upset he had missed the excitement.
" I like this crap," Shoupe stated, obviously unaware that his comments were being picked up by one more deputy's body-worn cam. "God, I tell you just what, I thrive on it.
" If they do not believe I'll offer the damn order to eliminate that motherfucker they're full of spunk," he included, chuckling. "Take him out. I'm below on the damn incorrect end of the county," he claimed.
Shoupe's comments have actually motivated a government lawsuit from Dial's widow, Robyn Dial, affirming the use of extreme force versus her late other half, who was unarmed."
