Multiple Cops Murdered In The Last Week While Conducting Traffic Stops

Last updated March 2, 2021

Traffic stops are a common part of an officer's day. To keep everyone on the road safe, they pull over cars they see speeding or otherwise driving erratically.

However, traffic stops do not always go smoothly.

In Stanley, Virginia...

On the afternoon of February 27th, Officer Dominic Winum pulled a car over on Judy Lane.

However, Winum never left his vehicle. According to WHSV, the suspect, 29-year-old Stanley resident Dakota Richards, stepped out of his vehicle first, fatally shooting Winum.

Page County Sheriffs found Richards hiding in a barn. After making threatening movements, he was shot and killed by deputies.

In Brinson, Georgia...

On Saturday night, Decatur County Sheriff Lieutenant Justin Bedwell joined the pursuit of a truck driving recklessly. According to WCTV, the chase was initiated by Seminole County Sheriffs.

However, Decatur County Sheriffs's joined the pursuit when it crossed into their county. The suspects began firing from their vehicle at the pursuing officers.

They shot at Bedwell's vehicle wounding the DCSO officer. Bedwell succumbed to his injuries Monday morning at the hospital. Officers took both suspects into custody.

Communities Reeling

Bedwell leaves behind his wife and daughter, while Winum leaves behind his wife and four children.

Support for both of these officers and their families has been pouring out of their communities.

Bainbridge Public Safety posted, "Lt. Justin Bedwell's sacrifice will be forever remembered, and we hope that the outpouring of love to his family and friends will help in some small way during this extremely difficult time."

The town of Stanley has erected a memorial outside of the Stanley Police Department filling with flowers, cards, signs, and even donuts in honor of Winum.

“Very shocked. He was a really good guy. Treated everybody with utmost respect, so you couldn’t ask for a better officer.”

Virginia State Trooper Brandon Tester

There is No Routine...

Many aspects of a first responders job may seem routine on the outside. A simple traffic stop, which seems like the most basic job an officer performs, is still incredibly dangerous.

While an officer may believe they are just pulling someone over to give them a ticket, they have no idea who the other person is and what they may be thinking.

Unfortunately, in these two cases, both officers lost their lives before they could even speak to the suspects leaving behind their families and communities.

  1. Until officials get serious about dealing with the trash doing it it will continue and escalate. One has to bear in mind it is NOT legal gun owners doing the shootings. It's thugs and punks who are committing the crimes and nothing serious is ever done about it anymore.

  3. This is why the officers have a use bullhorn d to get these thugs out of the car. It is much too vulnerable for an officer Told Put himself in danger while approaching the car. After All, the police have all day and Or night to wait for the person or persons to come out if the car.

  5. Let the city leaders who want to defund the police do the job of officers for just one day then the idiots would be so very sorry. They are as dumb as a box of rocks and I would be willing to be 90% of them voted for CHINAQ joe and camel face.

  7. Guns don't kill people. A gun has no Initiative. People kill people and without police the deaths will climb.

    1. I agree James, guns do not kill people, it's people who kill people. The radical dems are so dense to make this excuse to for taking away our 2nd Amendment. "The right to bear arms" and the right to protect yourself and your family. And to think these radicals are defunded the police and sending the money overseas instead of keeping these brave men and women on the job.

    1. Also if the leftist weasels disarm honest law abiding citizens crime will increase.We have to find an honest way to get the"RUBES"that are in power now,out of power,and i said honest because thats what we are,unlike the sleazy democrats.

  9. It's time regular citizens,with or without cCW permits,back our men and women of law enforcement and see these criminals take the room temperature test on a regular basis. This is America,land of the free,home of the brave. Let's get it done!

    1. I support our hard working police by wearing a mask with the blue line on it. Several off duty officers have commented their appreciation.

  10. It's time regular citizens,with or without cCW permits,back our men and women of law enforcement and see these criminals take the room temperature test on a regular basis. This is America,land of the free,home of the brave. Let's get it done!

  11. Current Occupants of the whitehouse don't have the mindset that the people's president Trump had: law and order was his cornerstone campaign theme. What's lying biden's..close your eyes, ignore law abiding citizens requesting help to clean up their cities. 2022 is coming vote out the radicals.

    1. Law and order is why we have "LAW" enforcement. In california they are now starting a program that has civilians doing traffic stops so as to relieve the stress of the driver from the dangerous police officer. Everything is backwards when it comes to law enforcement these days. For goodness sake just do what you are asked to do by the officer and nobody gets hurt. If the officer is out of line you will still be alive to discuss that at a later date. Acting like a fool is never acceptable. I agree that there are some bad officers on police forces. If you follow the rules and make complaints or bring it to the tv news things can be fixed. Getting rid of police departments is not the answer. Not is having civilians doing traffic stops

  12. GOD BLESS all our Police........Condolences for all those Police Families that are suffering the tragic loss due to the low mentality of the left.
