A Brush With Death: Patrolman Quincy Smith

On January 1, 2016 Patrolman Quincy Smith of the Estill Police Department in South Carolina was dispatched to check out a man who had possibly shoplifted from a local store.

The suspect, 29 year old Malcolm Orr, was spotted by Patrolman Smith walking a short distance away. Patrolman Smith attempted to stop Orr; giving him verbal commands to stop, take his hands out of his jacket pockets and come over to speak with him.

Orr did not obey the officer’s commands and instead continued to walk away. Ptl. Smith began to walk towards Malcom Orr and continued to give him orders; Smith also drew his department issued Taser gun and closed the distance between himself and Orr.

The two men were fairly close together when Orr abruptly pulled a handgun from his jacket pocket and fired several rounds at Ptl. Smith striking him three times, once in the neck, once in the arm and once in the hip. Ptl. Smith returned to his patrol car for cover and called his headquarters to report the shooting and ask for help. Malcolm Orr took off from the scene.

This entire event was recorded on a “body cam” of sorts. Several weeks before this incident Ptl. Smith purchased his own video recorder that was built into a pair of glasses. His agency didn’t have the funds to buy body cams and Smith felt it would be a good piece of equipment to have so he bought them himself. As it turned out the suspect, Malcolm Orr was positively identified using the video from Ptl. Smith’s personal recording device.

This video footage of Smith’s deadly encounter was shown nationwide on many news programs and as well as on Facebook and other social media sites. The reaction to it was amazing as it revealed the reality that every cop faces every day, unexpected danger. What made it even more amazing was that as he sat in his patrol car bleeding from the gunshots Ptl. Smith took to the police radio and told dispatch to tell his family he loved them. He did this because he believed he was going to die.

I spoke to Ptl. Smith about his experience; he was very forthcoming about the incident and the lessons he learned as well as his very real brush with death. Quincy Smith is unique as a person, but he carries the traits of many of those in law enforcement, he just wanted to keep his community safe. Serving in law enforcement was his way of doing just that.

Quincy said that what he found during the incident was how good people really are; two strangers came to his aide after the shooting and helped him as he waited for assistance and medical attention. Two of his cousins were listening on police scanners and heard the report of his shooting; they responded to the scene and prayed over him and with him while they waited for help.

I asked Quincy if he felt that he survived for a reason and he said that he knew God was with him, he could feel his presence in those long and terrifying moments.

Quincy was out of work for several months, returning in November of 2017. The shooter, Malcom Orr, was tried and convicted and sentenced to 35 years in prison for his attempt to kill Ptl. Smith.

Ptl. Smith has a great attitude and he is grateful for those strangers that helped him in his time of need. He appreciates every day of life and understands how precious it is. On December 4, 2017 NJ Blue Now magazine awarded Ptl. Quincy Smith with a Valor award for his actions on the day he was shot. Ptl. Smith told me he was overwhelmed when the magazine staff called him to tell him he was being honored and that everyone involved treated him very well.

He tells his story now to other police officers to help them prepare to react and survive a deadly encounter, which as he says from experience, “Can happen at any time”.

Congratulations Ptl. Smith, our profession is distinguished because of officers like you.

The black book(s) of Ghislaine Maxwell, Jeffery Epstein’s partner in predatory sex services for influential people in and out of government, are the gifts that keep on giving, exposing the sexual predators, pedophiles, and rapists in the seats of power who command our patronage and pass our laws.

Antifa Extremists Working for the FBI

For the past year, the DHS and FBI have been releasing incremental bulletins and training manuals defining who domestic terrorists are. The documents’ written words cannot be misinterpreted: it’s the US. Literally, anyone who has complained about COVID restrictions, the 2020 elections, the presidential transition, and now CRT, is a domestic terrorist…

It is not just time to stop the Joe Biden Administration either, as with but a few exceptions the Republicans are not doing anything to try and save our country. We need to stop the Republicans too. Let me be very clear⏤I am condemning the entire Federal Government of the United States. I’m condemning both Democrats and Republicans – moderates and extremists. I’m condemning the whole damned thing…

Biden’s COVID Speech; 2020 or 2022?

The next three years scares the heck out of me because of the weak and pathetic person we have in the Oval Office right now. And unfortunately, the fact is that there is no one in the long line of the current presidential succession who can step forward to lead this country in the normal day-to-day governing, much less in an emergency…

Purging Patriots From the Military: The Proof

Whistleblowers have confirmed that military commanders have punished unvaccinated soldiers with extra physical activities, shamed them with humiliating acts, and denied them medical treatment as a matter of “shadow” policy across several military installations in acts of coercion to get troops vaccinated.

Claiming Necessity to Infringe on Your Rights

Like most Americans, I think operating a two-ton machine while impaired is dangerous and irresponsible. Does that mean it’s within the power of the federal government to impose their opinion of how best to deal with this problem on the American people? It’s not a question of whether the technology is good or bad or even if this is a viable method of reducing drunk driving…

Why Are Democrats Weaponizing 06 January? 

The Deep State quakes in fear of the return of Donald Trump, so he must be destroyed. But, try as they might to do so, we see the Democrats face of Socialism revealed for the dangerous nonsense it really is as their facade of legitimacy, i.e., WOKE, CRT, defunding police, rising crime and murder rates in our Blue cities, etc., collapses around them in piles of…

Will China’s Dream of a World Empire Collapse Before it Begins?

Herein lies Xi Jinping’s greatest weakness. His hubris. Like many famous leaders before him, he has over-reached beyond his ability to control the outcome – in policy, in the building of his military, in his over-reach to control so many parts of the world, in the disregard of his own people, in the disrespect towards the other members of the CCP, and of his overall underestimation of the many enemies he…

Are the PCR Test Swabs Dangerous?

Are the PCR Test Swabs Dangerous?

Millions of people are tested daily, and this is part of a rush and panic to get massive testing done. I suppose rushing into anything in a panic is not a very sound principle. To underscore the seriousness of this potential problem, I’d like to provide the background of the researcher who tested the swabs for possible toxicity. Dr. Antonietta M Gatti, Ph.D., is a heavyweight…

Masking can’t hurt, Right? How about Experimental Vaccines?

Masking can’t hurt, Right? How about Experimental Vaccines?

Intuitively, our degree of compromise is directly proportional to the severity of “punishment” or reprisal we expect to receive if we opt to do the right, good, or even logical thing. That’s why so many people wear masks in public; not from conviction, but from fear of repercussions. Some of us have been conditioned to believe that all viruses are psychopathic killers. Not so. Many still believe the gene-manipulating shot is an experimental vaccine…

Follow the COVID Money Along With the ‘Science’

Fauci certainly wasn’t exhibiting an exemplary high standard of scientific integrity when he lied repeatedly to Congress last May that NIAID has “unequivocally” never funded gain-of-function research at the Chinese Wuhan laboratory. About $600,000 in NIH funding had been funneled to Wuhan through a New York-based nonprofit…

It’s pretty obvious that what the Democrats are up to is a blatant attempt to fire up their base for the 2022 midterm elections where Democrats are predicted to take a drubbing, and to gin up support for their unconstitutional attempts to change how Americans select their leaders by federalizing elections across the country…

Low rates of hospitalization and death are expected, particularly with early treatment.
