Vancouver motorcycle Officer Dustin Goudschaal was shot seven times in the face by a White Supremacist when he attempted to stop a black pickup truck believed to have been stolen on Tuesday in Washington State.
While Goudschaal was stopping the black pickup truck, the driver, James Sapp, leaned out the window and opened fired on the officer. Goudschaal was hit seven times in the face, but survived the shooting with the help of witness Sam Anderson, and is in stable condition at a local hospital.
After the shooting, Sapp sped off. The police began a frantic hunt for Sapp, who is affiliated with a White Supremacist group. Sapp reportedly has a large swastika tattoo and “White Pride” tattoo across his lower back (nobody tell the man that Poles, Czechs, and Slovaks are considered “White.” Not that he’s intelligent enough to understand the irony).
According to KPTV, Sapp crashed the black pickup a few blocks from the shooting when the passenger, Timothy Plantenberg, grabbing the wheel and caused the accident. Sapp then tried to kill Plantenberg, but Plantenberg managed to escape.
Sapp then came across an 88-year-old man, and then grabbed the keys to man’s tan Chevy S10 Pickup, punching another man in the face when he attempted to stop Sapp. Sapp drove off in the stolen truck but later crashed, and that’s when police finally caught up with him.
When they interviewed him, he blamed the shooting on an individual in the truck he identified only as “Dan.”
Sapp’s been charged with attempted murder and robbery and unlawful possession of a firearm, according to KPTV. This is atop a criminal history with multiple felonies, including a raft of them from 2010 when Clark County deputies arrested the man for felony assault and found drugs, ammunition, and materials related to white supremacy at his home.
A White Supremacist with the name “Sapp?” That’s truth in advertising.
