Hero Down: U.S. Deputy Marshal Patrick Carothers Murdered

Long County, Georgia – U.S. Deputy Marshal Patrick Carothers was gunned down while attempting to arrest a violent suspect, here’s what happened.

Multiple law enforcement agencies had been on the lookout for 25-year-old Dontrel Carter since September. Carter was wanted for attempted murder of law enforcement officers and evading authorities. His original charges stemmed from an incident in South Carolina where he fired into a family members home, led police on a high speed chase, and eventually fired at police officers before escaping capture. A $7,500 reward was offered for information leading to his arrest.

U.S. Deputy Commander Patrick Carothers, 53, and his team of Deputy Marshals tracked this violent criminal to a single wide trailer in Long County, Georgia. As officers breached the trailer, Carter opened fire on them, striking Carothers several times. Medics performed emergency first aid, but Carothers succumbed to his injuries at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Savannah.

His team returned fire, killing Carter.

Carter, who caught a serious case of acute lead poisoning.

Carter, who caught a serious case of acute lead poisoning.

Carothers had been with the U.S. Marshal Services for 26 years and has been a commander for a little over a year. The complete details of the shooting have not been released, but if he was the only one hit, it looks like he may have been one of the first in the door. If that’s the case, Carothers led from the front like a real commander.

U.S. Marshals Service Deputy Director David Harlow states

“The fugitive who killed Deputy Commander Carothers was extremely dangerous, wanted for trying to kill law enforcement officers and deliberately evading authorities. Pat is a hero and our thoughts and prayers are with his wife and five children,”

Thank you Deputy Carothers for your lengthy service as a U.S. Deputy Marshal, you died a hero.

Please send your thoughts and prayers over to the U.S. Marshal Services and Carothers family.

    What else is new really did expect him to be black. So sad these scums that act like this think they can all get away with anything. Glad he was killed

    • AnakiMana

      He was scum and got what he deserved, and it’s so sad that a hero died. But why be racist about it? People should be judged on their actions individually. Thinking like this, “really did expect him to be black” – this suspicion of black people – it’s poisonous to our society! Many black people are being taught that white people and police in general are out to get them. It’s this same type of thinking that you seem to possess, but from the other side. Racism and bigotry, and the violence that stems from them, are born from stereotypical thoughts like your suspicions. I know nobody likes to be reprimanded, but I’m tired of people thinking that all whites are racist. Does anyone agree with me, or should I shut up?

      • Denise j42b

        Agree 100% I’m sick of this stereotype also. Blacks can’t even be remorseful for a fallen lawman bc the lowdown scum that killed him in cold blood was black, and I’m glad they killed him. Another parasite sucking on society dead. I’m so sorry for Deputy Marshall Carothers family. God bless.

      Blacks?! Nice try fool. You whites killed over a dozen LEOs th east two,weeks alone and 74 percent of the cops on 2016 you racist fool! The Iowa cop killer who inspired this article was a confedrate flag wrong raid at and Anti BLM white “Donald Trump” supporter! Obvisuly thatsbthe exact opposite of Obama! No BLM activist/organizer ha sever killed a cop! The article is inrelsonse to what you confedrate flag racists did yesterday bynkillingthose Iowa officers. 74 percent of the cop killings this year were by you rural WHITE MEN and 98 percent of the cop killings thenoaif two months alone in Iowa, Tennesse, Arknasas, St Louis, Wisconsin, and the Kansas deputy gangraped an kidnapped just last week were confedrate-flag white nationalists and Anti-BLM trump supporters! But apparently just like with Ethan Couch and Brock Turner the criminal justice system has made you white cop killers think you can get away with anythign(snark)!

      But I’m not supposed just like yesterday when you idiots tried to blame the Iowa shooting on BLM/Obama until youngest eggs on your faces once again that you would try to push a false narrative..

        Nico – Only difference, is when its a white man that is killed while pointing a gun at a cop. “White folk” own it and say, ” Dumbass got what he deserved for pulling a gun on a cop.” Won’t hear that from you, huh?!

  • JacksonState601

    How can an ordinary citizen help y’all to keep trash and filth like this off the streets? So sad our boys and girls have to deal with these criminals

    • Jeff Klein

      Be our eyes and ears.

      • JacksonState601

        I say let’s form a citizen militia to back y’all up!!!

  • walt kaiser

    RIP my brother in blue, we have you now, EOW 11/18/2016. Thanks to the rest of the crew for taking out the trash and avoiding a long drawn out trial.

  • nono

    An entitled thug ends the life of a fine man. God bless this man who gave his life to protect others.

    • Nico James

      Very intresting you didn’t c all the 74 perc me too white men who killed cops so far this year including over a dozen Leo’s the past two weeks “entitled thugs”. I wonder why! Hmmm…. This man was declared legally retarded by the state years ago. Very intresting on your hypocrisy, very intresting indeed.

      • winston smith

        A double standard, right? Don’t forget about the 4 white boys who kidnapped the poor black teenager (Brittanee Drexel) in Myrtle Beach, S.C. years ago, gang raped her for days, and then fed her to alligators. http://wbtw.com/2016/08/26/fbi-missing-teenage-girl-abducted-raped-thrown-into-swamp/ Where’s the justice?

        • Nico James

          Justice?! They were all immediately arrested and invited Wernt they?! Hypocrusy fail! Sit down fool. Really your example is from something that happend nearly a decade ago by some fast @ss girl who didn’t listen to her parents, got involved with a gang, and let them pay for her hotel?! Haaahhahhhh!!!!! Her problem. Bad decisions have consequences.

          • winston smith

            You are an idiot. Stop listening to rap and read a book. Ah, yes, blame the victim as always. Never the black man’s fault is it? Excuses for not acting civilized are getting really, really old.

  • RM

    R.I.P my brother. Keep his family in your prayers.

  • brady reed

    how is it that you expected him to be black when the last 10 LEO’s killed in the line of duty within the past 2weeks were shot by white men??

    • Floyd Clingenpeel

      I know v of nobody that thought he would be black, troll

      • brady reed

        Obviously you didnt read JojO post asshole

    • Nico James

      My thoughts exactly! These people don’t care about race when it’s a white cop killer. Instead they dodge and rant about Obama and BLM when they have nothing to do with it either!

      • Bustinidiots

        Are you still posting your racist hatred…. grow up. FUCK Obama and FUCK BLM. You can’t really be as stupid as you seem…really. lol “these people”…..lmao. your the racist…do you not see it?? If I said “these people” you would get mad and probably call Jessie Jackson….
        Your pathetic.

        What would you say if it was a black cop? Yeah, I thought so. There would be no post here. Here is your 2015 Statistics…. 3% of people killed by cops were Black. But… Over 80% of Black murders were killed by…. BLACKS.

      • C.d. Gibson

        Yeah well another BLM THUG just killed a cop in San Antonio too. Shove it racist fool.

  • Denis C. Flaherty

    My condolences go out to his family and his extended family in uniform…..RIP, SIR.

    If Obama had a son, he would be just like this.

      • Common Sense

        Why don’t you post how many black lives were taken by black thugs? How many innocent black children are killed in thug shootouts? Don’t spew your rant until you can care about your own; or even for that matter your children. Hell, today a Chicago representatives’ grandson was just shot over his tennis shoes! Stop the lies, STOP THE VIOLENCE. All Lives Matter. Racism isn’t just one color… and yes, it applies to the black race too.

      • Bill Beveridge

        Try speaking English. Supposedly your native tongue. What ever said in your rant, I haven’t the slightest idea. I guess I don’t speak BLM.

  • George Murrey

    Prayers for family and friends.

  • mmazzi

    Sad and disgusting these pos running loose.

  • NoseFace

    Absolute frickin tragedy, be at peace brother, you died a brave bad ass sir.

  • James Fitch

    I really hope we see a difference when Trump takes over. I hope he unties hands and starts letting/telling the DOJ to actually prosecute those who would have ended this ass hats life long ago. He’s a real turd. This is what BLM wants to tell us matters? This hunk of crap. I’d like to see a climate change of all this garbage from those terrorist groups and the ones they want to protect. That will be global warming I can get behind and support.

        Yeah well this turd wasn’t a neo confederate… if he were I would have addressed them as a problem. As for as the other percentages you quoted. That is nobody’s fault but the media. If there are more white cop killers as opposed to black cop killers then blame the media that worships that same pos you do and his raggedy team of his misfits. If the media doesn’t want to cover white cop killers yet plaster the news with people that support garbage like this while they shoot at, riot against and fight with the cops as they burn property, trash and loot businesses, block freeways and tons of other illegal activity. If the media that you love when they trash Trump wants display your people as nothing more than a useless, unemployed nuisance then don’t get mad at me. Get mad at the media. As far calling out BLM and their terrorist activities while commenting on this article that’s absolutely fine. I try to keep to make sure my comment related to the article.

    • Nico James

      I mean honestly your ranting about BLM when neyo-confedrate nationalists and white men killed over a dozen cops the past two weeks alone and 74 percent of the cops this year?! Haaaaahhhhhhh!!!!!!

  • winston smith

    Too many great officers are dying from the actions of ignorant punks. I’d bet he should have been in jail for earlier crimes, but got a YOA sentence or early release. Do away with both. Lockem up and keep them behind bars with the other vermin. I don’t give a crap about rehabilitation (doesn’t work), I care about the safety of hard-working, honest people.
