Fairview Heights, Illinois – Recently released police dash cam video shows the moment a traffic stop turned into a shootout in Fairview Heights. It happened early in the morning on September 25th, 2012.

Officer Jeff Stratman had pulled over 30-year-old Dallas McIntosh for failing to use a signal. When he saw McIntosh's drug record, he called for a K-9 unit. It picked up a scent, so Stratman approached McIntosh to ask him to get out of the car.

"That's when the door was flung open, and [McIntosh] came out with a gun and started shooting," said Fairview Heights Officer Tim Mueller.

As Stratman and another officer went running, one bullet hit Stratman in the hand, which was holding a flashlight. The flashlight helped stop the bullet from hitting Stratman in the stomach or vest, but shrapnel hit him in both hands.

McIntosh took off, and a chase ensued. Shortly after, McIntosh was arrested. Then, word began to spread through the department about what had happened.

"It's very scary, there's no if's, buts, about it, it's a scary thing," said Mueller. "You never know who you're coming in contact with."

It is a risk Stratman got to know all too well in his 27 years with the department. Before the September 25th shooting, another suspect also shot at him at close range, but missed. Mueller says the risk of that happening is something officers deal with every single day.

"Some people aren't made for it. You definitely have to be made for it," said Mueller.

Stratman's injuries forced him to retire from the department. While his fellow officers were sad he couldn't return to the force, they say the important thing is that he made it home.

"It could have been so much worse," said Mueller.

McIntosh was injured in the gunfire exchange but has recovered. He was charged with two counts of attempted murder, and sentenced this week to 40 years in prison.

I can only hope McIntosh is White. If he is black and Al Sharpton calls Obama. He will be out of prison in a week with a healthy check in his pocket.


If he was white, he could hang out at Bundy's ranch protected by a white right wing militia.
