In an incredible demonstration of courage and fortitude under fire, a North Carolina Sheriff's deputy took out his assailant after taking 5 bullet wounds.
Deputy Whyms was flagged down by a concerned father, who then requested assistance with his unstable son. Whyms jumped right in to help and conducted a traffic stop on the suspected individual.
As Deputy Whyms approached the vehicle, the driver opened fire without warning. Despite taking 3 bullets to the upper body and 2 to the lower extremities, Deputy Whyms immediately returned fire.
The gunman, identified as Aidan Bryant, sought medical care shortly after fleeing the scene. Bryant was hospitalized and will be arrested as soon as he is released from medical care. It is still not clear if Bryant is the unstable son whom Deputy Whyms was trying to assist.
As for Whyms himself, he is expected to make a full recovery. This is incredibly good news and our prayers remain with him through his recovery.
What if the anti-Police activists had their way and this was a social worker, not a Police officer handling the call. Would they have been better off? While we think that replacing Police with Social Workers is a terrible idea, let us know what you think in the comments below.
If anyone replaces police with social workers, we'll be seeing them die at an alarming rate !!!! It's pure liberal insanity !!!!!!!
Fund the police. Let them do their job. NO PLACE FOR SOCIAL WORKERS ON THE STREET.
PROSECUTE CRIMINALS TO THE FULLEST. RECALL ALL SOROS
911, There's a crazy dude shooting at me. Please send a social worker right away!!!
I'VE HEARD SOME DUMB THINGS IN MY TIME, BUT REPLACING POLICEMEN WITH SOCIAL WORKERS IS ABOUT THE DUMBEST THING I'VE EVER HEARD. THE DEATH TOLL FROM DOING THAT WILL SKYROCKET AND THEN THE DEMOCRATS WILL WHINE AND CRY AND BLAME EVERYTHING EXCEPT THEMSELVES FOR THEIR STUPID IDEAS.
Well the Dim dems would blame the
Should have read your reply first, but I agree, 100%!
Or Trump, or even the Russians.
Sorry and Prayers/Praise goes to the officer. If the perp was black and the officer white, the demoncraps (see defund-the police) would push prosecution of the officer's actions for practicing 100% rehabilitation of the criminal element. Perp's family should be fined for not getting help for the perp before this unfortunate event. BTW, will these head-shrinkers/Social-Services personnel be armed?
''If the perp was black and the officer white, the demonrats would push prosecution of the officer’s actions'' doesn't work as well for the demonrats as it did. They used it to keep the people divided, but too many of us are wide awake and see their agenda foe what it is! ANY police officer, regardless of ''color'' should have their lives protected with mandatory sentences for any attack on a police officer.
If hes 18 or older he can refuse any and all help, you can commit someone but even they cannot force medication counseling etc on that person. You would need a judge to sign a court order to force medications on that person and that doesnt always happen. Can't always blame the parents.
replace cops? looney toons. totally
Dumb asses that’s all I can say thanks Mr. Whyms you are my HERO All Gods Blessings please get well
I cannot believe that even the democrats could think up this stuff. Wain until they start suffering by getting shot by some idiot, who ya gonna call??
Thank God for our brave and resourceful POLICE OFFICERS doing their duty at all times of the day and night! THEY DESERVE OUR SUPPORT NOT OUR DISDAIN! ANYONE WHO WANTS TO DEFUND THE POLICE SHOULD NEED ONE IN A HURRY! GOD BLESS THIS MAN AND HOPES FOR A SPEEDY RECOVERY!
Those want to defund the police NEED to walk in the police officers shoes for a ride along for at least 2 times. It's an eye opener.. it'll change your mind in a hurry.
This will never work. They will be killing them and walking away. This is a joke to even think it would work. It will take a couple of them to get killed and social workers will be done with this.
I wish the wounded officer a full and speedy recovery.
The USA WAS FOUNDED ON RIGHTS AND SAFTY NOT SOCIAL WORKERS !
THE MEMBERS OF POLICE FORCE ARE OUR PROTECTORS!!!!
Social workers do NOT FILL THAT NEED
I salute this brave officer and wish him a fast recovery, our police never get enough recognition for their bravery.
Bless this brave officer.as a survivor of d.v. sometimes there is no safe way to disfuse a volatile situation
With 5 bullets in him I would say he defused it the only way possible!!!
Prayers for this brave officer and his family. And his co workers.
REPLACE COPS WITH THE IDIOTS WHO WANT THEM REPLACED. THAT SHOULD TAKE CARE OF THE PROBLEM VERY QUICKLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Perfect solution, only you'd find them running to hide in mommy's basement if someone faced them.
LOL, it is a FN joke to think someone who is about to commit a crime of harmful behaver can be reasoned with by talking to a social worker. And my bet is it would soon reduce the number of social workers. Courts, family and associates have to intervene BEFORE es postal, not as something is going down, very few who have gone over the edge can be reasoned with. Someone " I think the saying of an ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure...... an, of course confinement has a use.
What does work is specialized police training in dealing with mentally disabled subjects without the necessity of killing them. There are techniques which can be utilized effectively by such trained police officers which increases both officer safety and the safety of the mentally I’ll subject. This type of crisis intervention requires a lengthy period of training as is best confined to a special squad of responding officers.
If we re-opened some of the mental health hospitals where these people could be cared for that might help. Go walk our streets and see how many mentally ill we have walking around unsupervised!! I've seen too many of these poor lost souls.
Originally the left wing loons sued to release the mentally ill "because they have a right to life just like anyone else." Past California Edmund Bown started the closures of mental hospitals where the crazies should have remained. Jails now house many of the crazies because mentally ill people often don't know what they're doing. Did those left wing bleeding hearts factor this into their decision to close the mental institutions?
So you have a simple traffic stop and someone opens fire and shoots you five (5) times and the officer is lying on the ground, so is he/she supposed to call a social worker or waits for the individual to shoot him/her a couple more times before returning fire?
Some liberal lunatics would probably say yes.
Do you really believe that cops should be converted into social workers? That's what you're asking for. How would that have worked in this situation? It wouldnt.
Send in the social workers. If they're crazy enough to respond to dangerous calls, there will be an attrition rate which will cause a shortage of social workers. The problem will take care of itself.
Bless you for your courage -prayers are with you for your recovery.
Never send a social worker to a gun fight. The police need to practice on kill shots with only one maybe two to put down gun threatening criminals. Don't riddle them that's what gets the police in trouble.
