Caught On Dash Cam: Texas Cop Shoots And Kills Man For Fleeing Traffic Stop! (Officer Will Not Face Charges)
A Texas cop who shot and killed a man for driving off during a traffic stop will not face charges – even though the dashcam video shows the officer firing into the driver’s side window from the side – nowhere close to being struck by the car. However, Brownsville police say they found a screwdriver inside the man’s car and that was enough for the Cameron County grand jury to not charge officer Rolando Trujillo Jr with any crimes Wednesday. But the video does not show Jose Ramon Rodriguez using the screwdriver to lunge at the officer, which is the usual justification for killing citizens with screwdrivers.
