This pillar of the community is Rasheed Scrugs. He is the filthy savage scumbag who murdered Philadelphia Police Officer John Pawlowski last night. It is my sincere wish that he dies an agonizing death and spends an eternity in Hell.
Officer John Pawlowski never had chance last night when he approached the man authorities say had a “death wish” and fired .357 Magnum at the policeman.
The suspect, identified by police as Rasheed Scrugs, 33, of West Philadelphia, started firing through his coat, striking the five-year veteran at least twice in the chest as he fell to the ground on Broad Street, near Olney Avenue, police said.
Scrugs was charged with Officer Pawlowski’s murder this afternoon.
Police sources have said the gunman was “crazy” and appeared to have a “death wish” as he tried to shoot his way through police.
Pawlowski, police said, had been protected by a bullet-proof vest, which stopped at least one bullet. A second slug struck him just above the vest in an unprotected V-shaped area at the top of the chest, authorities said.
And, of course, Scrugs is a model citizen:
In the mid-1990s, records show, the he was also arrested on theft and robbery charges and for illegally carrying a gun. He was given a 5- to 10-year sentence in 1997. (H/T – Philly.com)
Frakkin’ animal deserves to die.
UPDATE: Scrugs pleaded guilty to first-degree murder of Officer Pawlowski, stating, “I’m guilty of first-degree murder, and I’m sorry.”
