Officer That Nearly Lost His Life At Hands Of Thug Delivers Epic Message At Sentencing

An unidentified undercover police officer in Jacksonville was driving his son to school when he noticed a motorist that was driving erratically. He decided to pull the car over to see what was going on. His life would never be the same.

The officer had pulled over 21-year-old Kevin Rojas, who was none too pleased about the inconvenience. As the Daily Mail shares, Rojas exited his vehicle and opened fire on the officer.

Rojas was 19 at the time of the incident. The cop, who is not being named to protect his identity, was not on duty at the time of the incident, but he saw a problem and did his best to take care of it. That decision nearly cost him his life.

Bullets started to fly when Rojas exited the vehicle, and the officer was struck in the face, stomach, and hand. Luckily, his child was unharmed.

The officer would return fire, and that prompted Rojas to take off. He would steal a truck and flee the scene. Remarkably, he went back to his own home after crashing the vehicle and barricaded himself inside.

It didn’t take cops all that long to track him down, and they had to use force to enter the home. He was informed that he needed to drop his gun, but he declined to do so. Cops would proceed to shoot him in the leg, torso, and hand.

The case made its way through the system from that point, and the sentencing day finally arrived.

Rojas was undeterred in spite of the fact that he was facing a lengthy sentence, as he smugly smiled when it was announced that he was convicted on charges of attempted first-degree murder, attempted manslaughter, two counts of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, grand theft auto and fleeing.

The undercover officer was there as well, and he had a message for the wayward young man that placed things in perspective for him.

“I will take those bullets instead of a fellow officer and an innocent bystander. When I brought the fight back to you, you ran like a coward," the man said. “Obviously that day changed my life, and it will never be the same.”

At that point, the officer pulled out a tube of K-Y Jelly and gave Rojas some additional food for thought.

“You are going to need a lot of this,” he said.

That’s a rather epic way to drive home a point, but we’re going to assume it didn’t do much good in terms of leading Rojas to an epiphany. If you can still be acting like a smug fool after spending time behind bars, then there’s not too much hope to be had for you.

He’s been sentenced to life in prison, but he’ll be eligible for parole in 25 years. The officer offered up some additional details about the frightening scene that nearly cost him his life after he exited the court.

“It only took for me to look away for one second, and he was already on top of me trying to kill me,” he said.
