A woman in Tennessee was killed and a cop was rushed into surgery following a shootout in a parking lot, graphic video shows.
Footage of the Friday morning encounter between Metro Nashville Police Officer Josh Baker and Nika N. Holbert, 31, shows the 14-year veteran cop deploying his Taser on the woman while ordering her to get out of a car.

Do I need to look?
She obviously never watched that Chris Rock instructional video.
"...pulled a piece..."
That’ll teach her for driving her drug-dealer-boyfriend’s car.
The officer is lucky to be alive.
He lsot control of the subject who was a=waltzing around wherever she wanted prior to the shooting.He needed back up
She also had baggies of drugs in her purse, which the police officer showed her before he arrested her.
No, but from her position and the steering wheel will need to be sanitized
Why are people unable to just Comply with Law Enforcement?
And then to pull out a gun is asking to be shot....
Think about your actions people.
She was probably hoping to get a multi-million $$$dollar settlement out of the encounter.
The world will just have to figure out how to carry on without Nika, I guess.
Obviously it was a racist cop, if it wasn’t, he could have just shot the gun out of her hands.
Was the officer wearing body armor?
I maintain that “resisting arrest” should result in a mandatory 10-year prison sentence. No ifs, Ands, or Buts. Teach that to the kids in school. Show it on all the cop shows on TV — everyone knows the Miranda Rights: “You have the right to remain silent ...” That’s burned in our brains from TV. Well, make it so everyone knows — 100% — if you resist arrest, you get 10-years in the slammer. Right away. Anyone and Everyone. No fancy lawyer will save you.
People just need to behave and comply. If the cop is “hassling” you, you can prove it in court later on. For today?? Just do what the man says.
I wonder if Mayweather will buy her a gold coffin and take her on tour, like Georgie Boy.
He tried to get back up,. repeatedly radioing for it.
At one point the dispatcher said “they’re four minutes away”, but then said disregard that.
Sounds like the chief has some work cut out for him about timely backup.
When seconds count, backup is only minutes away!
Watching the video I nearly recoiled when I saw the physical condition of the cop who is extremely obese.
And he allowed the suspect to ignore multiple commands to the point where she eventually was able to pull a gun and shoot him. And allowing the suspect to reenter a vehicle in this situation is close to a suicide death wish.
This cop has no business being a cop.
