NRA Life of Duty, Presented by Brownells, looks at the case of Charles Wallace
"We're not holding people accountable anymore. There's no negative to doing crime right now."
"I received a page as I was walking out the door. Two officers down."
Those are the thoughts of Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich from Spokane County, Washington, shared by NRA Life of Duty in their latest Patriot Profile — Catch and Release.
In June of last years, two Spokane County Sheriff Deputies were in the middle of an investigative traffic stop. Matt Spink, 45, and Deputy Mike Northway, 42, were looking for associates of one Charles Wallace. The vehicle in question belonged to one of those associates. Unbeknownst to them, Wallace was in the car.
A fifteen-time felon, Wallace was released a few weeks earlier (without bond) on the premise of attending an in-patient drug rehab program. His latest offense? The distribution of heroin and the illegal possession of firearms by a convicted felon.
As the deputies approached, Wallace rolled out the side and shot both men. Fleeing at first on foot, he led local authorities on a high speed chase before ultimately taking his own life.
Brought to you by Smith & Wesson, this documentary provides a look behind the shooting of those two Spokane County Deputies by a felon who had no business being on the street. Watch the full story on the catch and release of Charles Wallace on NRALifeOfDuty.tv.
