Cop Opens Fire on Dad Who Was Trying to Save His Child During Asthma Attack

“I seen a light, but at that moment in time I’m not paying attention to him. I’m paying attention to my child. I actually opened the door and I explained to him again what was going on, and as I’m pulling my daughter out of the car — gunshot.”

Child was present, but cop shot anyway.


A Jacksonville sheriff fired shots at an unarmed suspect during a traffic incident Monday, but will not be placed on leave. Officer J.C. Garcia shot at Brian Dennison as the latter was rushing his daughter home in the midst of an asthma attack.

Garcia, a five-year police veteran, pursued Dennison’s green Ford to an apartment complex, where the officer opened fired believing Dennison had a gun, First Coast News reported.

Dennison then explained that he was rushing home to get his 6-year-old daughter her medication, as she was in the throes of an asthma attack.

The mother of Dennison’s daughter said Dennison held his hands outside the window of the car to prove he was unarmed. She added that her daughter was shaken by the incident.

“She just thought that they were going to shoot her, and she was afraid for her dad,”  Nacoya Ransom told

Dekierian Cook, Dennison’s cousin, overheard the shooting.

“I think he just shot to shoot, you know,” he told First Coast News. “There’s really no reason.”

Cook said Dennison’s daughter has “really bad allergies.”

Dennison was eventually arrested on misdemeanor charges of knowingly driving with a suspended license and driving with a suspended license. He is being held on nearly $2,000 bail at the Duval County Jail.

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office did not mention the shooting in its original police report. A separate investigation was opened to address the shots fired, according to Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office (JSO) spokesperson Melissa Bujeda.

JSO’s Cold Case Unit will handle the second incident report, according to First Coast News, yet that report offers little explanation as to why Garcia opened fire.

“On 11-24-14, a JSO Patrol Officer conducted a traffic stop on a suspicious vehicle at 3900 Toledo Rd. During the traffic stop the Officer fired his handgun one time. No one was injured. The Cold Case Unit will follow up the investigation,” the brief report states.

The shooting was the first for Garcia, who has not been placed on leave.

“Being placed on leave is not automatic for every situation. It is up to staff to determine what will be done. Each investigation is unique and investigated as such,” Bujeda told First Coast News.

Meanwhile, on Monday, Jacksonville police fatally shot a man resisting arrest following a traffic stop.

Driving with expired tags and a suspended license, Leonardo Marquette Little, 33, attempted to flee the scene with one handcuff on, according to police. Officer Cecil Grant used his Taser on Little three times before he said Little took control of the non-lethal weapon. Grant then shot and killed Little, according to

    OK copsuckers, inform us how this man should have put the life of his child secondary to the law, and how he should have stopped and obeyed the police while letting his daughter suffer and possibly die. Let’s her it JC and the rest of you cop lovin’ assclowns.

      I am with you Michael, I want to see the excuses now.

        I suspect STEROID USE &/or some kind of mandatory vaccines they perhaps shoot cops with….

        LMAO hey this guys story is good and I have some beach front property I want to sell you in nevada. This guy saw a cop was driving behind him knew that if he’d ran his tags it would have shown his license was suspended so he pulls into the ATM trying to get the cop to pass, the cop decides to run the tag and tries to pull him over and the guy flees to his house I bet my bottom dollar their was no medical issue if so why wouldn’t you driver her to the hospital or as soon as the officer approaches tell him hey she’s having a medical emergency He used the little girl as a shield with that being said the officer was also wrong for firing a shot I do not believe this man had hostile intent or committed a hostile act he was trying to get out of a ticket and that is not worthy enough to be shot at the officer should be punished and the man should also be punished

          Maybe the house was closer than the hospital….

          Asthma is not always a medical emergency?
          You just need your inhaler? If you let an asthma attack go on for an hour it can be life threatening, but if your house is 5-15 minutes away why would you go to the hospital and pay $350 that you probably don’t have for an antihistamine or a nebulizer when you LITERALLY HAVE THAT SITTING IN A CABINET AT HOME FOR FREE?

        • Chris Sky

          maybe THIS is why the guy didn’t want to “stop for the police” while his daughter had an asmtha attack.. this lady pulled over while speeding to the hospital during her loved ones Asthma attack.. the police “helped” by detaining him on the side of the road until he DIED. but I guess you’ll make some more excuses for the cops !

        Thanks he does not deserve to miss Thanksgiving with his family!

  • Don Talley

    You are a road pirate piece of shit. You are not needed. I have guns. I can protect MYSELF, my home and my family! Some one breaks in to my home, I am THERE to respond in an instant where you assholes are minutes away sucking each other off in a parking lot some where. If I am in a car accident, I need EMS and the Fire Department. You would probably shoot me for not obeying your commands, and shoot anyone trying to help me. If my house is on fire, I need the Fire Department, not you. You’d probably shoot me if I came running out of my house, then claiming you feared for your life. Pussy. You assholes are not heroes. Fire Fighters and EMTs are REAL heroes. They actually SAVE LIVES, while you dickheads only TAKE LIVES. Nice job in extorting money from hard working people under threat of force and violence. This is what you pigs do. You try to extort money from people, if they refuse, you threaten with violence. If they continue to refuse to be stolen from, you assault them and kidnap them, and hold them for ransom. You call it bail, but it is ransom. If they continue to resist paying, you reserve the “right” to break into their homes while heavily armed. And if they resist and try to defend their homes from an unlawful entry with intent to kidnap, you fuckers will ALWAYS kill them.

      Well said, Don. Posted to: Christopher Dorner Fan Page

      You are right, but there is a remedy. The system is functioning on two sets of law. Ecclesiastical Law, and Admirality Law. The first is under the Roman Catholic Church, the second is ran by Freemasons. Admirality Law only has jurisdiction over navigable waters. Roman Catholic Law only has jurisdiction over its members.

      This is what happened, from what I can tell.

      Our mothers were conned into a Satanic system when they agreed to sign and certify our births with the federal government under the newly founded STATES formed after the reformation act following the civil war. FYI, the civil war was not about ending slavery its was about preventing the southern states from succeeding and operating under a confederacy. This country in its early inception was forming a libertarian form of government under a confederacy which is a loosely formed government. When it was decided some amendments were needed in order to function better, the people in charge of that decided to just recreate a new system and thus the constitutional Republic was born.

      The articles of Confederation are still in effect however their isnt anyone seated in its offices, and this is further witnessed by the printing office still printing them as governing documents. It was never repealed. Did you know before the civil war the United States voted in its second Black Senator? I believe the first was Frederick Douglas, but I would have to check.

      Under Christian doctrine you are required to save for your childrens children, i.e serve the generation that comes after you.

      If you recall Satan refused to do that, arguing that he should not have to serve a creation that followed him.

      Now back to your birth. When the birth certificate was signed, a treasury account was created for you. From there a Trust was created with government the trustees and you the beneficiary.

      A trust functions under BONDS. That certificate literally placed us all into BONDage.

      The surety bonds created from this Trust, have terms like any contract, however these bonds do not perform in favor of the trustees unless the beneficiary violates the terms of the contract you dont know even exist, that which lawfully is required.

      These bonds are how they administer you as the beneficiary. This is why they are always creating a way for you to violate their laws which you think you are obliged too.

      Always challenge jurisdiction and compel the court to bring forth an injured party, who is the only one that can be a complaintant.

      If they get crazy put them on juducial notice of oath, and put on the record the STATE is incapable of producing an injured party and order the court to dismiss the charges and walk out.

      They are a society of freemasons. A society has members who are willing to be members of it and only those members are obliged to the rules they established for themselves.

      They have just been coercing us into contracts through indoctrination centers called education camps.

      Stop helping them make money on the surety bonds and they will eventually fade away.

      Look up the two forms of law described above, usafunct, surery bonds, and further look up the US supreme court fighting words doctrine.

      We are all being hoodwinked and enslaved by being preyed on by the ignorance they fostered upon us, but we are waking up.

  • sewsharitcenturylinknet

    I too would like to know why a father with a desperately sick child is being shot by police…I thought of the bail idea, and with most of America getting the gist of what is happening, a few bucks from everyone will help this father out. We can’t let victims sit in jail, suffer abuse, and wrongly charged, without a solution. I’m poor, but I have a few bucks that would go to a father saving his daughter’s life. they are rounding us up.

  • upagainstthewall

    He was driving to get his daughter her medication? If so, wouldn’t that be considered a medical necessity to drive?

  • Real Justice

    This lowlife rotten lying copper will be protected by the lowlife rotten lying KKK injustice system, that likes to protect all of these psychopathic criminal pigs at any cost. It’s yet another crime to add to the never ending crimes committed by a criminal authority that are untouchable. JUSTICE IS DEAD!!!! BUT LONG LIVE THE FIGHT FOR JUSTICE!!!!

  • David Rivers

    so why is it that cops are so afraid that everyone is going to pull a gun on them?
    could it be because they act like bullys & jerks and dont treat us with respect?

    yep, thats why. you pigs brought it on yourselves.

    In the 16th – 18th century, Africans enslaved 1.5 million White Europeans in the Barbary Slave Trade. African Muslims raided up the coastlines of Europe, particularly the British Isles but even as far as Iceland, kidnapping and enslaving White European Christians. The men were galley slaves, and the women were sex slaves. This was more brutal than working on a plantation or as a domestic servant.

    Forty-nine of every 50 muggings and murders in the Big Apple were the work of black or Hispanic criminals.New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly confirms Mac Donald’s facts. Blacks and Hispanics commit 96 percent of all crimes in the city,the FBI for 2007 finds blacks committed 433,934 crimes against whites, Today, 73 percent of all black kids are born out of wedlock. Growing up, these kids drop out, use drugs, are unemployed, commit crimes and are incarcerated at many times the rate of Asians and whites — or Hispanics, who are taking the jobs that used to go to young black Americans.
