VIDEO: Man Screams ‘Kill Me’ at Cop 40 Times… Then THIS Happens

From The Washington Post:

Glendale Police Officer Joshua Hilling encountered the man walking down busy Interstate 75 in Ohio. The man said he didn’t have identification — just a book bag with dirty clothes in it.

“I’m going to pat you down for officer safety,” Hilling told Javier Pablo Aleman before putting the man against the back of the police car, authorities said.

Body camera footage shows what happened next: Aleman pulled out a knife and lunged toward Hilling, shouting, “I’m going to kill you!”

The officer shot Aleman once in the abdomen.

Aleman got back up and shouted “kill me!” more than 40 times at the officer, who exhorted Aleman to drop the knife and get down.

Officials in Ohio showed the 13-minute video of the incident during a news conference, where they announced that Hilling won’t be charged in the March 29 shooting, the Associated Press reported.

Instead, Aleman will be charged with attempted murder.

“Joshua Hilling deserves a medal for what he did,” Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters said at the Tuesday news conference, WCPO reported.

Hilling “is one brave individual,” Deters said. “He showed remarkable restraint involving the confrontation of an individual who was clearly armed.”

Hilling didn’t know it at the time, but Aleman, 46, was a fugitive wanted by police in Baltimore County for a homicide, according to the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office.

On March 17, Victor Adolfo Serrano was found dead after suffering multiple stab wounds, Baltimore County police spokesman John Wachter told the AP. Police have charged Aleman with murder in the death of Serrano, his former landlord.
