A man on trial in the shooting death of Chicago Police Officer Thor Soderberg took the witness stand and said he's proud he killed the officer.

Bryant Brewer was on the witness stand for more than two hours Thursday before Judge Timothy Joyce halted the trial and ordered him removed after he repeatedly ignored an order to sit down.

When he first took the stand, Brewer appeared confused by questions from his attorney and spoke softly. However, he became irate when questioned by Cook County Assistant State's Attorney Brian Sexton, reports MyFoxChicago.

At one point, Brewer answered "I'm proud," when Sexton asked if he's "proud of being a cop-killer?"

The 43-year-old Soderberg was shot with his own gun in 2010 outside a South Side police building. Defense attorney.

So this Skell thinks he's proud of killing a cop! Well wait until he gets to prison. I have worked in patrol, and corrections in my career and it wont be a picnic in there for him. To bad Ill. did away with the death penalty.

I would bet that this guy is his defense attorney's own worst nightmare. If they don't convict him there is something terribly wrong with the system and the jury pool.

Convict and execute ASAP!

I trust that the corrections officers will make this a**hole very comfortable in his cell. Why ... they may even put chocolates on his nightly pillow. Lights out for this D*ckhead.

Absolutely sickening....
That perp is a waste of air, space, food, and toilet paper.....

He's not worth the toilet paper. Now hanging in the public square might wake some gang members up not to be doing this and might just deter them a little.

I'm I supposed to be shocked by this comment? Just another P.O.S.

"Brewer thought the officer was going to pick up his gun and kill him, she said."
So the officer was pistol-whipping this dirtbag brutally, but then laid his gun down. Even in Chicago I don't think there's a jury stupid enough to buy that line.

I believe that everytime an officer is killed that two inmates should be executed.
