A Vancouver police motorcycle officer in Washington who stopped a black pickup truck which was  believed to be stolen was shot seven times when the driver leaned out his window and opened fire, according to court documents released onTuesday. Officer Dustin Goudschaal survived the shooting, and he’s listed in stable condition at a local hosptial.

After Goudschaal was shot, the suspect, who police identified as James Sapp, sped off with a passenger in his truck, according to a witness identified as Sam Anderson.

According to Anderson, Goudschaal asked her to help him and she bandaged a wound on the officer’s neck before paramedics arrived.

Following the shooting, police frantically searched for Sapp, who they said is affiliated with a white supremacist group and has a large swastika tattoo and “White Pride” across his lower back.

It’s always nice that they leave marks on their skin to easily identify them after they fly into murderous rages.

According to KPTV, Sapp appeared to crash the black pickup truck a few blocks from the traffic stop. The passenger in Sapp’s truck, Timothy Plantenberg, explained to detectives that he grabbed the steering wheel of the truck in order to cause the crash, and that Sapp later opened fire and shot at him, and he managed to escape.

Sapp wasn’t finished.  According to police, he came across an 88-year-old man, then proceeded to push him then  grab the keys to his tan Chevy S10 pickup.

When two men tried to stop Sapp from driving away, he punched one of them in the face and assaulted the other. .

At that point, Sapp drove off in the stolen truck, but later crashed, and that’s when police took him into custody.

When the police interviewed him, he blamed the shooting on a passenger in his truck that he identified only as “Dan.”

According to KPTV. Sapp is charged with attempted murder, robbery and unlawful possession of a firearm after Monday’s shooting.  He has a criminal history which includes multiple felony convictions. The Clark County Sheriff’s Office said Sapp was arrested in 2010 for felony assault. Deputies confiscated drugs, ammunition, and materials related to white supremacy at his home.


And he looks like such a nice man.

    Wow, he’s really creepy looking, I’ve seen better looking images on a poison bottle. I can predict his defense; he was in his sovereign-er rights with these acts.

            He doesn’t look like he would be a Canuck fan to me. The Canuck fans had their problems 3 Stanley Cups ago.

        Did we give Washington State to Canada?

        • mmaynard119 July 2nd, 2014 at 10:13 pm

          We tried. The Canadians were too nice to accept it.

        you are stupid get a map

      • Phil Grove July 1st, 2014 at 7:59 pm

        You asshats didn’t get the sarcasm above and your ignorances show. The Gov of Miane had a meeting with a scumbag supremacist dirtbag group in Maine about assassinating Democartic leaders.

      • Jillian NoEnbridge Beach July 2nd, 2014 at 10:04 pm

        Um, no. If you read the article, this happened in Vancouver, Washington State.

    • Guest July 1st, 2014 at 5:00 pm

      …and apparently where spelling doesn’t count.

      • guestover July 1st, 2014 at 6:00 pm

        I like the part where he doesn’t use spell check.

  4. edmeyer_able July 1st, 2014 at 5:06 pm

    Wonder how many likes he’ll get on facebook?

    • Carla Akins July 1st, 2014 at 7:55 pm

      I don’t think women are going to start a FB fund for his bail.

      • mmaynard119 July 1st, 2014 at 8:03 pm

        Carla – you’d be surprised on that. There are plenty of women who want to reform the bad boy.

        • Carla Akins July 1st, 2014 at 8:14 pm

          Oh, I’m plenty familiar with that trap. (don’t tell anyone) but that face. Oy.

  5. JimmyPete July 1st, 2014 at 7:12 pm

    Maybe the Governor of Maine will take a meeting with him.

  6. Ron Jackson July 1st, 2014 at 7:14 pm

    Again failure to call him what he is,a faux news viewer and tea party member.

  7. jasperjava July 1st, 2014 at 8:03 pm

    Right-wing conservative extremists are out of control.

    • Roctuna July 1st, 2014 at 8:52 pm

      These days, adding “extremist” was redundant

  8. AnthonyLook July 1st, 2014 at 9:19 pm

    The closer the election gets, the more overt their desperation gets.

  9. John_St_John July 2nd, 2014 at 2:23 am

    Just another fine upstanding member of America’s Tea Party.
