Video: Jawari Porter Shot While Stabbing At Officer With Knife

Video: Jawari Porter Shot While Stabbing At Officer With Knife

Cininnati, Ohio – A Cincinnati officer barely escaped with his life after knife-wielding robber, Jawari Porter, tried to murder him on Sunday. Security cameras captured the violent encounter on video.

In the video, you can see two separate scenes. First, Jawari Porter, 25, pointed a knife at a security guard’s neck while threatening him at a Kroger store in Downtown Cincinnati. Porter can then be seen crossing the street. Officers Anthony Brucato and Patrick Galligan then pulled up in a patrol car.

Once Porter saw the officers, he immediately went after Officer Brucato while he was still in the driver’s seat, before he had exited his vehicle. Porter started to stab at Officer Brucato when the officer was forced to shoot him.

Officer Galligan then circled around from the passenger side, grabbed Porter, and pulled him onto the sidewalk.

Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters made it clear that this was an obviously justified shooting, and it would not be going to a grand jury to review.

“This is a justified shooting. After threatening a Kroger store employee with a knife, he did not hesitate to try to stab a Cincinnati Police officer who did not even have an opportunity to get out of his vehicle,” Deters said.

Black Lives Matter Cincinnati immediately condemned the officer-involved shooting as an “avoidable” situation where Jawari Porter was just walking up to talk to the officer. They made this announcement:

“We contend the police-orchestrated escalation led to an avoidable killing. No efforts were made to get mental health professionals on the scene and no serious effort was made to subdue/contain, rather than kill Jawari Porter. We insist that mental illness is not a crime, and “belligerent behavior,” which television news witnesses allege, should not be punishable by death.”

The Black Lives Matter group, Greater Cincinnati Homeless Coalition made this announcement:

“The video of Mr. Porter being killed has been released. Please view it. The police officer had his gun drawn as soon as he opened the door. Inevitably this escalated the situation. This officer could have instead chosen a method of interaction meant to deescalate. After escalating the situation, and struggle ensued, the officer chose to shoot Mr. Porter.”

This incident just goes to show that in the minds of Black Lives Matter zealots, there is no such thing as a justified shooting. They will try to alter the reported facts on an incident to match their narrative, even when there’s overwhelming evidence that they are wrong. Officer Brucato and the security guard were the victims her, not Jawari Porter.

A hero almost lost his life on Sunday, and he will now have to live with knowing that he had to shoot somebody.

Black Lives Matter has no regard for this officer’s life or facts. Please share this story to counter their twisted version of this event.

        You are also demonstrating your ignorance

    • finsII

      Why the racist talk. You are demonstrating your ignorance

      • Jeffery Rightmire

        ask any of these negros how they feel about Police or a white person, you will get a lot worse than that back-

  • Hillbilly

    Thank you for ridding the World of this POS! Glad no officers or civilians were harmed.

  • Alex Kaufman

    But this thugs name will be added to the list of other “victims” of police brutality at their rallies. Along side Garner, the gentle giant Mike Brown, Freddy Gray, and other thugs who attacked LEO and died because of it. As always “Pants Up, Don’t Loot”. #BLUELIVESMATTER

  • Ken Nyhus

    Never, ever bring a knife to a gun fight! Good guys1, bad guys, bye-bye!

  • 5litrecat

    The officers should be commended for creating several jobs – Casket Maker, Grave Digger and Mortician.

    • Michelle Crosby

      That’s so bad! HA

    • HeidiHoNeighbor

      Their day begins when your day ends.


    Apparently this scumbag is not aware of the FORCE CONTINUUM. You brandish a knife, you get shot by a gun.

  • David Dix

    Glad they killed him!!!

  • ConservativeWaysSave

    Black lies matter is a terrorist group and there is no doubt about it. This example is just like isis when they approve of lone wolf attacks. Black lies matters is essentially justifying this thugs attempt to murder a police officer. It’s disgusting and our government needs to end this terrorist group quickly. If they don’t it’s only a matter of time before enough white people get tired of being treated this way and do something themselves. It’s seeming more and more like Obama is trying to create the need for Martial law so he can take away our guns. The only way Khillary wins is by a corrupt election and I think it might already be fixed.

    • Kengi Stargazer

      Will never get listed as such as long as Politicly correct democrats are in any measure
      of power at city level up to presidential level.

  • TheCowboys1957 .

    friggin spooks

    • Michelle Crosby

      Take the high road buddy, and leave the slurs out of it. Youve got to be better than that!

      • Dennisinlexky

        So does BLM

  • tompendergast

    The only bad thing here is that we can’t stand him up and let the security guard shoot him again.

  • Bryan Lucas

    BLM is probably the most ignorant, race baiting, group in history. Basically, it’s ok for blacks to act out in any manner. Police have no recourse with blacks committing felonies. Just show up and help them finish committting the crime and wish the brutha well.

  • Stan Tune

    This officer did an outstanding job. Congrats on a job well done. The thug got what he was asking for.

  • Deborah Mathers

    I just can’t with these people!

  • nickelfrog

    I won’t miss him. That he is dead matters not to me. I only wish his whole family could be prosecuted and hanged for being stupid.
    These morons are to stupid to breathe. Let’s kill them all. Let God sort them out. They are killing each other at a good rate but I believe that whitey can take out more of them than they can. (But whitey has to work too!!!)

  • Ragman69

    blm are full of idiots. Their thought process is infantile. They should be disbanded forcefully before they get more of their black folk killed.

  • David Thomas

    And BLM is saying he shouldn’t have been shot? Nonsense!

  • Steve Louden

    “Bad boys, bad boys! Whatcha gonna do? Whatcha gonna do when they come for you?” The black punk got what he deserved. Bye, bye punk!

  • disqus_Cc20uRF6eN

    OK BLM……just TRY to dispute this shooting !!!

  • David F Mayer

    The police did the RIGHT thing. There was NO CHOICE whatsoever.

    The probate court should have COMMITTED this guy to a mental hospital after his previous crimes.

    We have cut back on mental hospitals to “save money”, which then gets spent on the destruction done by these persons.

    The cop was right. The probate court was WRONG in letting him out after his previous arrests.

    • James Robinson

      Please don’t refer to “we” as to the reason for mental hospital closures. Most were caused by liberal politicians and mental health professionals who in the 80’s started the process of closing secure facilities and allowing those needing help to live in neighborhood community homes with drastically reduced professional oversight. During my police career I handled multiple murders, assaults, rapes, and other offenses committed by the very people they let out.

  • Griff63

    Well of course he had his gun drawn , the cop knew he pulled a knife on someone else. BLM and the rest need to stop defending thugs and hold them accountable .

  • one less POS to steel your stuff!

  • jmac731976

    If that guy wanted to die, he did exactly what he needed to do.

  • Michelle Crosby

    I can only say, I am glad to see this is all caught on video.

  • Spencer Berg

    Facebook is blocking this content? Why?

  • unclehomerr..

    I’d have shot him too! Don’t even think about coming at me with a knife!

  • doggmaninva

    Fuck black live matters….no better than black Ku kluckers and anarchist……and you dumbass whites that support them are no more than useful idiots that sooner or later will have your throat cut when they’re done using you…all hate mail will be pissed on and discarded…

  • Bob Anick

    BLM…The COP escalated the situation…. Until you fools get your heads out of your hind ends, no one (like me) will ever back you. I oppose you just because of foolish things like this. The criminal was at fault; get that through your thick skulls.

  • Bob Anick

    If clinton gets elected, this will just continue. Even if you don’t like him (wasn’t my first choice either), vote Trump.


    One less piece of crap to worry about. Good Riddance.

  • Janice O’Neil Field

    BLM members should be arrested and jailed. They are clearly a terrorist group. No other race or group would be allowed to get away with this crap. No more blocking traffic and killing police officers. It is time to end this.

  • B. W.

    Black Lives Matters can kiss my AS*! They are the scum of the earth as far as I am concerned and directly responsible for a number of innocent officers being killed!

  • William R Turner


  • Duane Layfield

    People have lost there mind’s, ,he probably was a hillary voter

  • Dennisinlexky

    Now you all remember this, Clinton highly SUPPORTS this gang of misfits.

  • GeniusInExile

    Once again Black Lives Matter proves that it is nothing more than a racist hate group.

  • aussiewoodford

    BLACK LIVES MATTERS are a bunch of criminals,they should be considered as terrorist to the citizen of USA, ALL LIVES MATTERS !!

  • Leo60

    Good for them. Glad to see another THUG get what he deserves… Any BLM complains about this shooting needs to be shot also.

  • whmustangs

    This is another Michael Brown, good job to the officers.
    I would’ve shot him myself.

  • James Wegman

    The 2nd cop was totally useless! He took his sweet time coming to the aid of his partner and then was thrown to the ground by the perp, no help at all to the 1st cop. He needs to get his fat ass into the gym and also get some basic hand to hand techniques.

  • Michael Silvia

    Tough shit. Don’t attack men with guns and badges with a knife and you probably won’t get shot. That black life doesn’t matter one bit. No great loss.

  • Broz

    The ENTIRE BLM crowd need their collectives mouths washed out with nitric acid!!!

  • James Robinson

  • maxx1676

    Another POS we wont have to put up with anymore.

  • SeriouslySerious

    Black lives matter had the nerve to say that the police officers didn’t even try to get mental health professionals on the scene prior to shooting the criminal who charged them with a knife? Wait…what???

  • Brian Smith

    Yo, yo, yo another Diddntdu in a hole.

  • whitewolf9

    Note to government, take care of this or the People will!

  • Jeffery Rightmire

    Good deal. When are these negros going to realize this is not the jungle where you do as you pleas. We have laws, and everyone is expected to obey them, and comply with police. The second civil war started when shots were fired in Dallas a month ago–.

  • TheOneFromTheFuture

    Brave but idiot. Some leader need to step up to the plate and organize this poverty stricken aggression.

  • Dr What

    It’s by the grace of God that Officer wasn’t hurt and they were able to halt that vicious attack with only the attacker being injured. May God bless our Officers in the LEGAL pursuit of their duties.

  • Bad Will Hunting

    BLM will get a lot more people killed. They are having the opposite effect. When you empower with your words the criminal element, they will act and the police will respond. BLM is a dark stain on this country.

  • Bad Will Hunting

    BLM is just another creation of G. Soros and the democrap party.

  • NewsRedial

    Obama, the Dems and the media have emboldened these evil people and for every dead cop and assailant they have blood on their hands. Shame on them.

  • LT714RET

    My thoughts on BLM groups would probably be deleted. However, they can be compared to a BM.

  • JCWS1

    Justifiable shooting, well placed rounds did their job. One less insane criminal on the streets tonight.
    Praise allah baba or Ollie baba and don’t forget that Blue Lives Matter more than BLM.
    You just saw the proof.

  • tekwrite

    Somebody comes at me with a knife they will be shot.
    Bowel Like Movement folks are a hate and terrorist group.

  • tekwrite

    Thug learned a bit too late that you dont bring a knife to a gun party! Bahaha
