Caught on Tape-Police Shootout in Hamilton, Montana-Watch Here

A coroner’s jury ruled that Hamilton, Montana Police Officer Ross Jessop was justified in killing a man during a late night traffic stop. It took a six woman jury an hour to rule that Officer Ross justifiably shot and killed Raymond Thane Davis after Davis shot at him.

The 5 hours of testimony included this chilling video recording of the shooting made by the police car dash camera. Davis first tried shooting Officer Jessop in the face from a few inches away. The click of Davis’ revolver’s hammer hitting a previously fired round was audible on the tape. Davis then shot again as Officer Jessop retreated and drew his own weapon. Warning the video is disturbing and may be too intense for children.

  • An hour to figure out it that the officer was justified? It should of taken less than a minute. I wonder what those women did for the other 59 minutes?
