In Tennessee, White County Sheriff Oddie Shoupe was caught on body-camera video lamenting that he was not present for a chase that ended with deputies and a Sparta police officer shooting and killing Michael Dial. "I love this s***. God, I tell you what, I thrive on it," he said. He also revealed he'd told deputies to shoot Dial. "They said, 'We're ramming (the suspect),'" he said on the video. "I said, 'Don't ram him. Shoot him.' "F*** that s***. You're gonna tear my cars up."
