A sentencing hearing

It just seems like I’ve worked so hard to get nowhere.”

On August 1, 2015 Glendale Police Officer Eric Guse was at an event at the pet store that had raised money for his dog’s new ballistic vest when the call came in. Officer Guse had gotten carjacking calls before, but this one would change his life. The dashcam in his squad car captured most of it: The black Porsche racing from Glendale to Milwaukee… The driver crashing the car and running onto a playground… Officer Guse running after him… puffs of smoke from the shootout. Officer Guse was grazed. And the driver, Deandre Wise got shot in the leg. This is Deandre Wise’s sentencing hearing.
