VIDEO: Man with Rifle Fatally Shot by South Carolina Deputies

A Greenville County (SC) Sheriff's deputy shot and killed a man who pointed at rifle at him Tuesday night.

Sheriff Steve Loftis says the deputy was investigating an assault report around 7:30 p.m., when Robert Morgan Garrison, Jr., 51, of Piedmont, came out with a knife and gun.

Loftis then says the deputy called for backup. Garrison was ordered repeatedly to put the rifle down but Loftis says Garrison did not comply with the deputy’s orders.

Garrison reportedly yelled at deputies “Kill me! Kill me! Kill me!” and then pointed his rifle as if to shoot. Two deputies on scene fired shots at the Garrison and killed him, WSPA TV reports.

And i'm sure the police enjoyed every minute when they realized they could so easily shoot someone and watch them "bleed out" like they love to do.

Marcus, do the U.S. a favor and have a stroke. No one needs the attitude.
