TUCSON — Police in Tucson, Arizona are investigating after a crooked cop shot and killed a 61-year-old disabled kleptomaniac in a motorized wheelchair. The sanguinary ordeal transpired around 6 p.m. Monday night at Walmart. It was also captured on video. Police body cam footage shows Officer Ryan Remington chasing Richard Lee Richards who was accused of shoplifting a tool box. When asked to verify purchase, Richards wielded a blade. “Instead of providing the receipt, Mr. Richards brandished a knife and said, ‘Here’s your receipt,’” Police Chief Chris Magnus explained to reporters. Remington, who was working as an off-duty security guard, shot Richards nine times in the back. Then had the audacity to handcuff him as he laid motionless in a pool of blood. “Mr. Richards refused to comply, and instead continued to head through the Walmart and Lowe’s parking lots,” said Chief Mangus. “Mr. Richards said, ‘If you want me to put down the knife, you’re going to have to shoot me.’”

Richards was pronounced dead at the scene. Remington got a pink slip. “As a result, the department moved earlier today to terminate Officer Remington,” said Chief Mangus. Mayor Regina Romero cosigned the termination. “The actions of the officer involved in last night’s deadly shooting are unconscionable and indefensible,” she fumed. “The County Attorney’s Office has my full support as they proceed with their investigation. It is moments like this that test our resolve to ensure justice and accountability. We owe this to all Tucsonans. I ask our community to remain calm and be patient as investigations ensue.”

  1. definitely get the cuffs on him asap you never know he may come back to life!

  2. He shot him multiple times in the back, then he moves in to handcuff a dead 61 year old. Wow

  3. Could of easily detained him with little to no physical force … Jesus Christ

  4. The guy pull out a knife. And some people are knifes experts. The guy might have army training or survival training and knows how to throw a knife. I think the officer made the right call to shoot him but in the back too many times I don’t know.

  5. Shameful police work at its very best. Congratulations to those who “trained” this animal, issued him a gun, bullets and the authority to uphold the law.

  6. And this is why ppl hate cops, I hope they get what’s coming to them. You mean to tell me this is your only defense to taking down a handicapped man in a wheelchair? What a pos

  7. Eye for an Eye…place the cop in front of a firing squad with his back turned!

  8. It’s not a wheelchair. It’s a mobility scooter. Wheelchairs are for people with upper body mobility and strength. Mobility scooters are for those that can barely hold a pencil. This cop needs to spend the rest of his life behind bars.

    Where is the outrage from law enforcement on this? Being quiet about these situations is giving the appearance that law enforcement has no problem with it’s members killing citizens. The police culture needs to change or there will be more counter-violence.

  9. JESUS CHRIST! He shot him the back and then put handcuffs on a dead man! That man needs to be put away from people FOREVER!

  10. While he’s being handcuffed, you can see his stomach is exposed – he’s still breathing!

  11. The officer deserves the death penalty in my eyes. Nothing right about what he did.

  12. If the shooting wasn’t enough. The way he was arrested says it A L L…
    Bruh just got lit up fell on his dome and yet was arrested like he’s some BJJ master. Bullets aren’t enough!

  13. Didn’t even try to taser him. I drive exactly the speed limit because I don’t want these killers pulling me over.

  14. Don’t worry everybody, the guy was white. There will be no protest

  15. Choke hold, taser , knock the wheel chair over . So many other options. Lock that coward up!

  16. Rolling around in a wheelchair stealing and pulling knives on people gets ya killed. I’m glad they took that nut bag out.

  17. UTTERLY RIDICULOUS!!!!!!!!!!! Idiots like this is what gives cops a bad name. Toss this POS in prison so he can be at home with other ruthless killers.

  18. The police officer needs to be criminally charged. There was no immediate threat to the officers life or anyone else’s. The individual is in a wheelchair they should have been able to stop him without the use of lethal force. A taser or pepper spray would’ve been more appropriate.

  19. That’s why we need to sh””*oo,””t the p””olic””e and leave their kids without a father with no remorse.

  20. This is why I salute all cop killers. You guys are true American heroes, fighting against psychopathic murderers who wear a badge. At least cop killers are shooting an armed opponent. Cops are cowards, psychopaths, and I will treat them as such if I ever have to encounter them . Cops are not heroes, far from it. They are trash and they are dangerous to you and any other civilian so treat them as dangerous defend yourself that’s what the second amendment is all about.

  21. Unreal if I had not seen this I would say it was made up..did I see him handcuff a CORPSE.😭

  22. See cops don’t just shoot colored people.This was a old white dude in a wheel chair .Did you see any Riots after this shooting?

  23. Im starting to think cops aren’t human anymore, am I daft for thinking they are made in a lab from birth and some mad scientist has manipulated his DNA so he has no empathy etc, this is one way to turn the people against the police and give them a bad name, I believe they do it with school shootings too, them blame so loner of a kid with no friends

  24. Because the man shot wasn’t black, this will not be covered on cnn, msnbc, or abc. This will be forgotten about in a week, if not a couple days. No sympathy for white people. Love this country of what it has become.

  25. Could have used a baton, pepper spray, a taser, even just kicked his wheelchair over if you thought he was gonna stab you. Absolutely horrible police work, reprehensible act, executed a crippled man.

  26. Execution without a trial or jury. That cop is a cold blooded psychopath.

    His record needs to be pulled out and investigated too
