REPORT: New Jersey Police Shoot and Kill Backhoe Hijacker

Earlier this morning, a bizarre scene played out in Vineland, NJ.

In the early morning hours, a man reportedly hijacked a backhoe, then went on a rampage.

After attacking the police, he was reportedly shot and killed.

Surreal Scene

One neighbor who was able to video the scene as it was taking place stated that it was like watching a scene in “a movie.”

Police can be seen around the backhoe when the man appears to snap.

The backhoe charges into a vehicle, then turns it over.

As the video goes on, the backhoe driver appears to turn to go after another vehicle…

The scene unfolded at the Penn Lincoln Mobile Home Park in Vineland, NJ.

If you are not familiar with the area, it is about 40 miles outside Atlantic City, NJ.

As the attacks continued, officers eventually opened fire on the man, with one shot mortally wounding him.

Several officers were also wounded during the incident, suffering minor injuries.

All of them have been treated and released from the hospital.

The entire incident is now under investigation.

Local authorities had no further comment on the incident.

From what you saw in the video, do you believe this will be a justified shooting?

  1. YES, of course the Police had every right to shoot this jerk. Thankful they got him stopped before he killed anyone. He was a crazy thief.

  2. Just watched the video and if the police had not taken action there is no telling what might have happened, this guy may have hurt or killed other people, sorry he got killed and that 3 police officers were injured

  3. As a former equipment operator it was not necessary to shoot him they could have shot the tires and shot the hydraulic line in a minute or so the hydraulic system would have been empty making the machine non Operable I am not against the police for shooting him he needed to be stopped But only when all other options have been tried

  5. One less useless turd in prison to feed and clothe with orange polyester jumpsuit. One less turd for the taxpayer to feed and give a bed and toilet to use. Shooting justified. Back the BLUE.

  6. The back hoe thief made a dumb decision, just like Dante Wright, and George Floyd. All three are responsible for their deaths. Could you imagine if the idiot Floyd put his hands behind his back, got cuffed, and went peacefully with police? But NO, he made a really, really dumb decision. He would be alive today.
