VIDEO: Cleveland Suspect To Cop: 'I Would Kill You'

One of the two suspects who died at the end of a police pursuit in East Cleveland was a familiar face to officers due to some 50 contacts with police dating back to 2001.

Malissa Williams, 30, was killed at the end of a deadly pursuit in a 1979 Chevrolet Malibu along with Timothy Russell, 43, on Nov. 29. Thirteen officers fired 137 rounds at the Malibu following a 20-minute pursuit.

Prior to the pursuit, officers arrested Williams dozens of times for drug use, prostitution, theft and other petty crimes, reports the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Williams, who reportedly sufferred from schizophrenia, also threatened officers during the most recent arrest four days before the chase. Video obtained by Fox News Cleveland shows a handcuffed Williams riding in the back of a patrol car.

In the video, which was taken on an officer's cell phone, Williams says, "I would kill you, blow your f***ing brains out." She continued to threaten officers who escorted her inside the jail.

Mother of deceased will no doubt claim her son was just getting his life
turned around when cut down in a hail of police gun fire.

Or should I say mother of daughter was just getting her life turned around.

Tom- They should not attempt to turn their lives around. Apparently that is when you are most vulnerable and most likely to meet a bad end. Usually at the hands of another gangbanger or the police.

This will be like an episode of 48hrs, you know where they were getting their life together going back to school to become a Doctor or Attorney and they were great parents to their 15 kids. I guess their luck ran out, now we will be paying their kids every month until they reach 18. What a wonderful system we have, at least we will be saving money on prosecuting and jailing these AH's.

Ah, yes. "She was not violent." "She was turning her life around." "The system let her down."

Typical like who didn't see this coming. Mother is going to sue, and will probably get a good settlement. The officers will be put through hell and back, because they didn't take more time to acess the situation. This is what is going to happen....and we know it. Unfortunately the officers are going to go through a lot. Them and their families. This is going on everyday in the U.S. It's a Goddamn shame!!!

Yea, I see it now. Even tho she threatened this life of the arresting officer, some attorney will say the officer should not have videoed her with out consent first. In court they will take the officers phone as evidence and download it to see what else is on it. They will also say that the chase and shooting was a planned killing by the officers due to the prior threats. The game goes on. It's will until every officer in the U.S. gets up one day and walks off of the job for a week or a few days and leaves the law enforcement and protection to the people who hate them.
