    Body camera footage of a fatal officer-involved shooting in Thomasville has now been released. Herbert Gilbert Jr., 37, was fatally shot last August while Thomas County Drug Agents attempted to serve a search warrant at his home. The shooting set off several days of protests in Thomas County. Last week, a grand jury ruled this shooting was justified and now we have the footage showing what led to a drug agent firing those fatal shots. The video shows Thomas County Drug Agents arriving at a home on Magnolia Street. One agent announces he has a search warrant. After deputies search the home, they learn Gilbert is outside in an SUV. Coming from the left side of the video, you can see an agent's truck ramming into the front of the SUV Gilbert is driving.

    The truck pits Gilbert's SUV into a neighboring yard where multiple deputies demand he get out of the car. The SUV begins to roll back and that's when Deputy Josh Smith fires multiple rounds into the windshield. He fired seven rounds into the windshield and an eighth round into the passenger window. An autopsy revealed Gilbert was struck nine times. Gilbert was found with marijuana and $883 in his pocket and a set of scales in his vehicle. Body cam footage also showed first responders performing CPR on Gilbert and a chaotic scene with family members and neighbors arriving. The case could go to a civil trial.

    Cop placed himself in front of the SUV and began firing before it started toward him. Not a justified shoot imo.

    Omg, he had the devil's lettuce on him.
    And scales, surely for the justice weighed upon in in lead.

    What did they want to accomplish?
    Was going there with guns ready and avenues of escape open really the best way to do that?
    I think a lot of cops want to shoot someone just so they can talk about it later.

    Looks like the suspect drove his vehicle into the police vehicle first. He should have got his ass out the driver's seat and surrendered.

    Protocol is for the cop to open fire if he feels his life or the life of others is in danger, i.e. if the guy is driving towards him or another officer who is on foot.

    I didn't see that in this video. The guy was clearly trying to get away but no one's life was in danger at the time of the shooting.

    A high speed pursuit puts a lot of people in danger. So does kicking down a door with guns drawn and a license to shoot first.

    Let's just be glad that all of the crimes with actual victims (like murder, rape, assault, fraud, etc) have been eradicated in Thomas County, freeing up the resources to go after the victim-less crimes like selling pot.

    Funny how the potheads justify breaking the law so they can virtue signal right and wrong. When he took his car out of park he was resisting arrest as well. If it was only pot then why did he feel the need to run? He made the decision that his dope was worth dying over.

    How about human gets himself killed. He made the choice to take the car out of park. Typical pothead response about a dried plant. He would be alive if he didnt choose to think he was above the law.
