Sheriff's Disturbing Comments Caught On Body Cam

SPARTA, Tenn. - Body camera video from the aftermath of a deadly officer-involved shooting has raised new questions about what happened.

Video obtained by NewsChannel 5 Investigates shows the White County Sheriff discussing his order to use deadly force with another deputy.

The sheriff didn't know he was being recorded at the time of the comments.


Last April, Smithville Police attempted to pull over Michael Dial for driving on a suspended license.

He was driving a 1976 pickup and towing a fully loaded trailer.

The following, from another source, shares his comments:



“They said ‘we’re ramming him,’” Sheriff Oddie Shoupe of White County said on tape in the aftermath of the killing of suspect Michael Dial.

“I said, ‘Don’t ram him, shoot him.’ # that #. Ain’t gonna tear up my cars.”

Shoupe arrived on the scene shortly after police had shot Dial at the conclusion of a low-speed chase, clearly upset he had missed the excitement. Sheriff Oddie Shoupe. Sheriff Oddie Shoupe.

“I love this #,” Shoupe said, apparently unaware that his comments were being picked up by another deputy’s body-worn camera. “God, I tell you what, I thrive on it.

“If they don’t think I’ll give the damn order to kill that # they’re full of #,” he added, laughing. “Take him out. I’m here on the damn wrong end of the county,” he said.




“It was not only inappropriate but also unconscionable for Defendant Shoupe to give the order to use deadly force,” the filing states, calling his decision proof of a “malicious and sadistic mindset”. The suit also names the county, the city of Sparta and the two officers who fired their weapons.

“The comments as seen on the video are extremely disturbing. I’m not sure how anybody can thrive on the taking of a life, let alone somebody in law enforcement,” Dial’s attorney David Weissman told the Guardian.

Caution: language - Source Gaurdian - Videos at the sources, will leave that up to the mods if they are appropriate or not.

Dial's wife goes on to explain that her husband was frightened as to why he didn't stop. She believes their full intent was to kill him.

This is exactly why body cams are needed. The scene was of course more than disturbing, especially being that this not a new Sheriff, worrying as well. Evidence of what the sheriff said is now part of a federal lawsuit.

our government employees forgot who they work for

and a huge problem is the vast amount of people who are unionized and work for the government and they all work to increase their own power

big problems ahead if we don't get our act together and start giving them a piece of our mind

The people of that county need to vote him out, or else they stand behind this sickening behavior.

A reply I've seen going around the net about the story is at least the cars not being damaged saves tax payer dollars. My reply is, oh no, more tax payer dollars will go for the death of the man, including lawsuits, probably a proposed retraining of officers, etc.

What an inbred redneck.
First name is Oddie?
You know them rednecks love their Garfield...so much so they name their kids after a cartoon dog.

For those about to complain about my comment.
Obviously im being sarcastic.
Clearly he was named him after the God Odin.

Totally reminds me of something you would read in a Stephen King story. Hope he goes away for a long time.

The sheriff has been in legal trouble before:

Tennessee judge reprimanded for order proposing less jail time for inmates who received vasectomies


A federal lawsuit filed in August accuses Benningfield of acting with White County Sheriff Oddie Shoupe to carry out a "modern day eugenics scheme." Mario Williams, an attorney in the federal lawsuit, said 42 men agreed to the order.




"So Shoupe, wishing to reach his Eugenics goal, chose to offer the one thing that means the most to a human being who is incarcerated behind bars: Freedom," the lawsuit states.

Why is this nut still around?

I implore Tennessee voters to write their Reps.

Thats why certain mentalities join up; to get power of life and death, and misuse it.

That and the private organizations that hire many officers these days choose certain attributes.

The video of events:

I can see why they chased him, he won't pull over. I can see their frustration trying to PIT the truck and trailer, escalation on their part. I cannot see the reason they shot him after he was stopped... or the reason they felt the need to repeatedly bash his vehicle with theirs. Not like he was going to evade them, ever.

If they had backed off, followed him without sirens and lights blazing, if they had waited him out a few miles...

instead they forced him to panic and keep running to get their "maniac" off the road, at all costs.

There was a plan, that didn't involve shooting but as shared the sheriff wasn't having it.

This is just up the road about 20 minutes - and it’s not surprising. Even the local bigger towns, and everything in between, is rife with corruption.
