WPRI: A Providence police officer is recovering at the hospital after he was struck by a bullet in his protective vest Friday afternoon. Officer Matthew McGloin, a 10-year veteran of the department and a member of the violent crime task force, suffered an “impact injury” to his chest after a suspect opened fire on him and his partner Jonathan Smith outside a strip mall on Admiral Street around 3:20 p.m., according to Col. Hugh Clements.
“There were several bullets fired by the suspect,” Clements said. “We don’t know how many right now.”
The officers returned fire but the suspect, later identified as Tyrone Robinson, was not hit and got away on foot. Robinson, 19, ran to his home a few blocks away on Douglas Avenue, Clements said, which was soon surrounded by SWAT team members with their guns drawn. Robinson eventually came out and was taken into custody, and police recovered the firearm. Clements said he’ll likely be facing several charges. The chief also noted that Robinson was “well-known” to police and has firearm and drug charges on his record. In fact, at the time of his arrest he was out on bail for a gun charge from May, according to Clements.
Ya know what would’ve prevented this from happening? More gun laws. That always prevents maggots like this from obtaining weapons because they can’t buy them at Walmart.
How fucked up is it that a cop got shot in Providence and it barely makes the news? I guess it’s only newsworthy when a lifetime grundle smear like this shoots a police officer and they end up dying. Or even worse – if the cop shoots Shithead McGee and the dindu nuffin mafia shows up to whine about police brutality. Fuck off.
This lowlife waste of space should’ve been locked up from the beginning. He’s only 19 years old and is “well known” to the Providence police. Do you understand how much of an asshole you have to be to be that young and already “well known” status in Providence? There’s a lot of competition down there, but one way to stand out from the crowd is to do your hair like Transgender Pocahontas (the real Pocahontas, not Trump’s Pocahontas). The cops will know your pretty ass from a mile away.
Of course he was out on bail on the gun charges, because Rhode Island is the only place with more incompetent judges than Massachusetts. Don’t worry though, he’ll be back on the streets faster than you can see “fuck da po-lease.”
Notice the cops took him out clean, despite the fact that he shot at a cop in broad daylight. That’s like a death sentence normally, and if police are as racist as the prize patrol tells me they are, then shouldn’t he be dead by now? Aren’t they always sharing memes about how Dylan Roof was arrested but Michael Brown was killed? Funny thing is, if you don’t resist the police, they’re probably not gonna kill you regardless of how worthless your life is.
This seemed like an open and shut one, and it would difficult for the free muh boi mafia to figure out a way to justify this one. But they did…..
Wait a minute – the cops were shooting at someone who was shooting at them? That’s racist! And coming from a chick who looks like a 5th grade gym teacher’s bag of dodge balls, I believe her yo!
But if Debbie Does Diabetes writes something on the Internet then it must be true. So it was shared hundreds of times until pa dukes caught wind of it and went free muh son.
Killing our kids? He shot a cop in broad daylight. This waste of a perfectly good money shot who ended up becoming your son Tyrone, wasn’t harmed a bit. He should’ve been, and the world most definitely would be a better place without him. But he wasn’t, and the fact that he will be alive tomorrow is the real tragedy here.
Get a load of pops.
Run EBT has seen better days.
Here’s an idea pops – this is all your fault. You brought human life into this world, likely were derelict of your duties after dropping off your load in the sperm sponge, and as a result another young shithead grew up valuing gangsta life instead of accruing $100K in college debt like he was supposed to! I’m gonna go out on a limb and guess pops missed a birthday party or ten of his growing up.
Although in fairness, it’s hard to find time to visit your kid when your broke ass can’t afford a car.
Richter Scale Ricky is an active voter too, and you’ll never guess what team he’s on.
Oh look, he already hated the cops before this. Almost like he “raised” his semen demon to view them as the enemy as well, which is why he ended up shooting one.
He thinks he should get paid more than cops too because he’s their boss.
It’s true. My taxes go to the federal government too, so that means I should make more than the President. After all, how can an employee make more than their employer?
Looks like his son had a “rough time” graduating from high school.
Getting a bunch of 60’s and showing up for 90 days of school ain’t easy kid!
To the shock of no one Dad breeds pit bulls too.
But to the surprise of many he seems to be gainfully employed and was recently awarded the coveted employee of the month award at Summit Commons Rehabilitation & Health Care Center.
And because hoodbooger culture dictates that it must be so, everyone on the shared Netflix account showed up to blame the cops who got shot by this shithead who’s out on gun charges.
Praying for him? For what? His transgender daughter wasn’t shot! The cop was!
One or two people out of the thousands of comments suggested that the felon out on bail for gun charges might’ve been at fault for carrying a gun around and then shooting it at a police officer in broad daylight. She was received exactly how you imagined she would be received.
Providence needs a plague so badly. Just wipe it off the face of the earth and start over. They already lost Fire and Ice so there’s really no reason to ever go there anymore either. The best part is that at least pa dukes can make up for lost time by visiting him in jail. Unlike his kid’s birthday parties he actually knows how to get to the jail.
