Medal Of Valor: Wildlife Officer Rushes To Save Multiple Cops Shot In Traffic Stop

Traffic stops are never straight forward. Often, they are one the main catalysts for larger confrontations between officers and suspects.

Traffic Stop Gone Wrong

In 2010, two West Memphis Police officers were shot and killed while executing a traffic stop on Interstate 40. Sergaent Brandon Paudert and Offcier Bill Evans were both shot and killed during the stop.

The suspects took off and were seen 90 minutes later. The two suspects ended up in a Walmart parking lot.

There they got into a firefight with Sheriff Cisk Busby and Chief Deputy W.A. Wren, who used their car to stop the suspects from getting away again.

Except it was not a fair fight. The officers had their handguns, while the suspects were armed with an AK-47 assault rifle and a handgun, both the officers were wounded.

Stopping the Suspects

Officer Neal arrived onsite ramming the suspect's vehicle with his truck. As he rammed their van, they fired AR-47 rounds at him.

Neal was not hit by the rounds and fired back at the suspects with his department-issued AR-15. He emptied a full 30 round magazine. He was able to stop the driver of the van.

He was not sure if he had stopped the passenger. He backed up his truck so he was no longer in the line of fire.

Backup Arrives

By that time, he was just firing with his handgun. More than 30 other officers arrived at that point.

They boxed in the suspect's van. In the end, over 260 rounds were fired. None of the additional officers nor any of the bystanders in the parking lot were injured.

The two suspects were declared dead at the scene. Officer Neal saved the lives of Sheriff Busby and Deputy Wren by his brave actions. Both of the officers were injured by the suspects.

Officer Neal sustained slight minor injuries in the altercation. Neal was awarded the Public Safety Officer Medal of Valor. He was also named 2010 NRA Law Enforcement Officer of the Year.

  1. Thank God for men like this who are willing to risk their own lives in order to save other blameless ones from evil.

    1. God bless and keep our men and women, who wear the blue AND the often un-hailed heroes who work in a dangerous part of criminal background activity - -our fish and game and wildlife officers and crew, who also serve at extreme peril.

  2. Thank God , Office Neal at his weapons! Very brave. I hope and pray those criminals get life in prison , with no chance of parole. They should be housed in solitary confinement.

  3. Wow no one commented . of course they never tell why there was a traffic stop. But today with a communist in our WHITEHOUSE and not knowing the intent of the cop is he a cop or Nazi I don't believe I would stop either. For the simple fact you never know what is in that uniform. You can't and should not trust anyone when we have so many ignorant DAMOCRAPS wanting to take our constitutional rights away and with the talk that that white man is the problem of the cops cans sit on there butts and let ANTIFA and BLM. Burn and destroy cities shoot cops in cars how are You to know what the hell is pulling you over. Remember all those cops left the force . Because they knew what it could be like. With the ignorance of damocraps if they are cops the smarter thing to do would to be talking them at a distance don't approach . watch of course it can still R d badly
    But you may find a better chance. Than driving up and pulling them over. Don't think for a minute of a cop was looking at me funny. They may. Become a speed bump. Just because they have a uniform don't mean shit. There has been fake cops as long as there has been cops. And a communist will use any tactic to get what they want. And hearing military and police are training this leftist crap I won't stop either. Sorry dudes get that rat BASTARD and that clan of thugs in prison before you pull anyone over . THAT SHOULD BE TOP PRIORITY. THEY HAVE DONE PROVEN THIS LAST ELECTION WAS A FRAUDULENT ELECTION. AND GUESS WHAT YOU DONT REMEMBER THERE WERE SO CALLED LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICEES INVOLVED . FBI CIA NSA THE BEGGEST PART OF THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT THAT IS WHY YOU ARE A DUMB ASS IF YOU TRUST ANY FORM OF LAW ENFORCEMENT. BE MAD AT ME BUT I DONT CARE OUR COUNTRY IS AT WAR AND IT CAN GET WORSE AT THE DROP OF A HAT. I WILL NOT TRUST ANY LAW ENFORCEMENT AT ALL UNLESS I KNOW HIM OR HER PERSONALY I HAVE KNOWN MANY IN THE PAST . NOT SO MANY TODAY. SHITS GOING TO GET BAD IF THEY DONT GET THAT BASTARD AND THEM SHIT EATERS OUT OF OUR WHITEHOUSE. AND SOMETHING BETTER BE DONE ABOUT THIS CRT BULLSHIT IN SCHOOLS LET ME FIND OUT ITS AROUND MY KIDS SOMETHING WILL BE VERY DAMN CRITICAL . I. NOT A COMMUNIST AND ILL BE DAMNED IF I WILL BOW TO A SON OF A BITCH. !!!

    THIS AIN'T SPAM THIS IS THE
    TRUTH BEING TOLD THERE ARE MANY OF PEOPLE TO AFRAID TO SPAEK UP AND STOP OUR CHILDREN FROM BEING VIOLATED FROM A FRAUDULENT ADMENISTRATION .
