Oklahoma: Police Officer Indicted for Murder After Returning Fire and Killing an Active Shooter

Blackwell, Oklahoma: Police Officer Lt. John Mitchell, 40, has been indicted on a second-degree murder charge, alleging he wasn’t justified in firing about 60 shots with his AR-15 at a female road-rage suspect, Micheal Ann Godsey, a 34 year old woman, who was an active shooter. Mitchell’s attorney said that the woman shot at her mother twice, shot at a private citizen, shot at cars while driving around at 3 am, and finally shot at the police twice before she was killed. A representative from the Oklahoma Fraternal Order of Police said that this is the first time in American history that a police officer or anybody has been charged with the crime of murder for firing at an active shooter in self defense.

An Oklahoma police lieutenant has been indicted for second-degree murder in the May 20 killing of a woman during a vehicle pursuit. Supporters of Blackwell, OK, police Lieutenant John Mitchell say the suspect was an active shooter. The media describes her as a “road rage suspect.”

Oklahoma City grand jurors concluded Lt. Mitchell acted without justifiable or excusable cause and engaged in “imminently dangerous conduct” toward Micheal Ann Godsey. If convicted, he faces at least 10 years in prison.

Defense attorney Gary James said Mitchell acted lawfully to stop a threat.

“She shot at the police twice. She has shot at her mother twice. She has shot at a private citizen. We know she fired other rounds around town. And Mitchell gets in behind her,” the attorney told the Oklahoman. “He took his AR-15 and he started shooting through the front windshield at her.”

Godsey, 34, was found dead in the driver’s seat of the pickup, the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation said in May.

media needs to not throw around the title “active shooter’ as it psychologically leads the public to believe in mass shooting events such as school shootings or other high body count ‘terrorist’ events. Guess if you want to justify a shooting or demonize the perpetrator, labeling them an ‘active’ shooter over just ‘a’ shooter makes it more trendy and dehumanizes them in the public’s eye.


This is beyond absurd.
