Footage Shows Police Gunning Down Paris Terrorist

Warning, the following footage may be too graphic for some viewers.

It shows authorities gunning down 32-year-old Amedy Coulibaly, one of four suspected terrorists who participated in deadly attacks in and around Paris, starting at the printing offices of Charlie Hebdo.

Before police fatally shot Coulibaly, he had had killed four hostages at a Paris Market.

    TITLE WAS ABOUT SHOOTING THE BAD GUY. WATCH THE HANDS OF THE PERSON WHO RUNS TOWARD THE DOOR. HANDS ARE TOGETHER AT WRIST! WHEN SHOT AND TUMBLING IN THE AIR THE HANDS ARE STILL TOGETHER!!!! TIED TOGETHER? Looks that way doesn’t it. Was this a bound hostage running toward the police for safety? You see hands but no gun. And in the finest French tradition he is given the coup de gras!

      Holy crap, Will Drider , good observation.
      I slowed it down and noticed as he hit the deck, his hands stayed together.
      You may be very right.
      The French will never admit to that.
      Deceit is a word made up in old France.

    Wow, stacked up nicely on the door, but let one guy go in and everyone else stayed in place. WTF, never seen anything like it. talk about leaving your buddy to fend for himself. The four hostages killed may have been dispatched while everyone else was standing there at the door waiting for him to come to them. Way to go frenchy.

    OMG! Thank You so much for the warning S.H. BLANNELBERRY!
    The inept and negligent execution that Inspector Clouseau and the French version of the keystone cops performed, was so mind boggling confused and dangerous, that I had to turn my head away.
    I almost missed the good part where the murderer was being pumped full of lead.
    It looked like a mouse getting broom beat in the middle of a room full of scared women.

    Clearly see the other commenters have little to zero experience with breaching. Yes there are a lot of dudes there, at least three teams on that particular entrance alone. Understand that there was a nation wide manhunt and another terrorist event happening across the town at the same time, so yes, an overwhelming show of force no matter what it looks like to the untrained observer. Also, the first guy going in is the bomb guy (look at helmet, shield, and extra armor) and the reason the rest didn’t go in is because of the potential for a bomb in the building going off: killing all of them. Also, there are clearly hostages laying all over the floor and you can watch the guy they shoot literally jump over them on his run out, another reason they didn’t all go in during the breach. Does it look like they might’ve shot each other when the dude tries to run between them? Yes, but that’s why they’re wearing 100lbs in body armor when that’s a natural risk of this profession. BTW this is French Special Forces, not the police.

    Just watching that vid, I saw the cop go in, but after the flash bangs, it looked like the cop tried to run out, only to get gunned down by his own team at point blank. Anyone else see that?

    • rUSS January 20, 2015, 5:39 am

      I don’t know what I saw, I had to turn away.
      I thought one of those idiots were going to shoot me through my PC.
      I sure wouldn’t doubt it.

    I have seen American cops to some very dumb things as well. It appears as though one French cop went in first. I imagine he was the one that threw in the stun grenade you hear going off. After it goes off the terrorist runs out, he may very well have been trying to get away from the lone French cop that went in first. At any rate none of the hostages were killed by the police so Americans lower your blue noses down a bit and give them credit for a job well done. Maybe the American police should be required to view this video, they just might learn something.

    God, pls do not let me be taken hostage in France. PLEASE!

  • pj moss January 19, 2015, 9:14 am

    Well, they are French police.

  • Ras DeBol January 19, 2015, 9:01 am

    Eh…It would be a major understatement to say that French SWAT team tactics leave a bit to be desired….. I can only hope there were no innocent civilians in that place since they were probably wounded or killed as they were “rescued”. I have been at shooting gallery’s with fewer bullets flying than seen here. How many times did they shoot that guy ? He must weigh several pound more than when he was alive… I am amazed that they didn’t shoot each other in that “Wall of Police” at the front door….
    One grenade or explosive device and a score of dead police would have resulted. Suggest we send videos of US cop shows for them to use as training films….

    The Coyote had better plan getting the road runner then they did , Tactically that was
    frightening . Ok, guys ! ” all 50 of us will line up at the front door and let’s see hmmmm . Frank ya Frank you run in yourself and then we will shoot over your head then throw a Flash Bang directly at your 6 . Then the Terrorists will be so confused thinking we are trying to kill you yes you Frank , he’ll run directly at us thinking we are on his side and we will shoot him point blank 700 times . OK break …

      I couldn’t have said it better. So much for all the fancy crap you see on tv. That was the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen. I can’t believe anyone got out of that alive.

      • Thomas January 19, 2015, 7:54 am

        Remember guys, we are talking about the French. Not the most proficient folks in the world at any kind of combat!

        • James Anderson January 21, 2015, 4:50 pm

          Man what a bunch of clowns! Did they not shoot some of their own? Dang lucky if they didn’t.
