Kevin Rojas, 21, was sentenced to life in prison for shooting a Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office officer during a 2016 gunfight. The officer was not identified due to his continued undercover work. He made sure to send Rojas off with a going away present that may get a lot of use.

“I will take those bullets instead of a fellow officer or innocent bystander,” he said. “When I brought the fight back, you ran like a coward.”

“I brought a little gift for you,” the officer continued. “You will need it where you are going.”

He then pulled out a bottle of lotion. There are some reports that indicated it was a bottle of KY lubricant. Either way, it wiped the smirk off his attacker’s face as he entered the court room.

In March 2016, the detective, who was driving his son to school, pulled over the then 19-year-old Rojas for driving erratically. Immediately after being stopped, the teen exited his vehicle and began shooting at the officer through his windshield, hitting him in the head, abdomen and hand. Meanwhile, the officer’s son sat in the passenger seat the entire time, but was fortunately unharmed. When the officer returned fire, Rojas fled, stealing a truck and getting shot three times himself while engaging additional officers who had rushed to the scene.

He will be serving plenty of time.

A jury convicted Rojas of one count of attempted murder of a law enforcement officer, one count of attempted manslaughter, two counts of aggravated assault, one count of grand theft auto and one count of fleeing or attempting to elude police. He must wait a minimum of 25 years before he will be considered for parole.

  1. It’s to bad that you can’t torture someone like him. Just like his actions did. I know that you have to be Christian in this situation but he needs something to make him feel remorse and learn from his mistakes. I pray for the officer and his family his son is already blessed by God and hopefully he is able to get over the emotional trauma this may have caused him. God is great, beer is good and people are crazy!!!

    • Just so you’re aware, studies show that psychopaths cannot make accurate predictions about the outcomes of their choices. Therefore punishment is not effective as a behavioral deterrent. It doesn’t make them feel regret, because they don’t associate it as a result of their actions. It’s rare that a psychopath would feel emotions like sorrow, regret, or empathy. They often just feel anger at their failure to achieve their goal(s).

      • Even violent vicious predatory animal are controlled by avertion to pain. I doubt many care about his feelings. After years of daily pain in his butt his behavior will be modified.

  2. Maybe the officer that had his son in such horrible danger should have that said son taken away. I don’t see a hero here, but, a dysfunctional male.

    • The only possible reason not to call you the worst person on Facebook today is you might have misread the story.
      The cop was driving his son to school, but could not ignore the violation and stopped the little jerk. It’s extremely rare for somebody in a traffic stop to shoot through the cop’s windshield like 1 in many millions
      It’s a cuphead recognized the license number of a dangerous felon who had shot someone and stopped and while driving his kid to school you might have a point rather than the one that’s on your evil tongue

      • He did what a cop would do it’s his job what’s yours? Degrading a police officer for doing his job?

    • He was taking him to school doubt he planned on getting shot up you brainless idiot. certainly not a
      dysfunctional male but at least you managed to spew your “men are bad” feminist trash on something completely unrelated. You however are a worthless cunt, piece of shit, dumbass woman.

    • Why should the officer have child taken away? He was a father out with his son. We need to wprry about children that are really being abused, not those that have parent’s who spend time with them.

  3. He was taking his son to school. He is obligated by law to stop people who are disobeying the law. This creep was just going to get a tecket and now he gets to stay in prison for the rest of his life. So i guess you think it is okay to shoot at cops that protect you sick butt. What if he shot at you. Would you feel the cops should not stop him. It does not matter if it is a minor violation or a major violation, they have to do their job at anytime. His son was smart and probably taught by his father that no matter what happens in this police car do not get out. So i say kudos to the father and kudos to the brave son, who i might add may have nightmares due to this scumbag. What would you do if it was your son. You are a complete idiot and do not support your law enforcement. I hope you get stopped everytime you squeal your tires.

    • I partially agree with both sides on this argument, the cop under no charge circumstances should have made that stop with his son in the car he should have called the plates in to an on duty officer. I guarantee that he regrets not doing that and also bet he’ll never repeat that mistake, so he has a good point there, but having his son taken away? No that’s just absurd you clearly have a problem with police and dislike them, a personal problem.

  4. The safe thing to do while driving one’s child to school should have been him calling his fellow police officers with his hotline instead of endangering or considering endangering his child and himself !!!!!

  5. I just find it really sad that the younger youth now is not taking the right approach to life their morals and standards all went to crap and it’s really not the parents’ fault because I’ve seen very well educated parents and good parents raise their children the best they can and their kids still come out violent little gangbangerswant to bees or whatever the hell you want to call them I think that it’s an issue that needs to be addressed more guns in the hands of teenagers and young adults who have no business with a gun but I realize also that there’s no way to get every gun off the street but I also don’t believe in wasting a child’s life these are children they’re not even developed mentally they’re doing this I don’t believe it’s right just put them away for life I believe that they can be helped and they can’t turn their life around and that they can feel remorse for what they’ve done and empathy with a lot of help and a lot of therapy and and turned around the right way I’m a big believer in behavior modification and boot camps and you can drill it into their head you can take away what’s been put in there and and drill it back into their heads to be normal and right and law abiding I know for a fact because I’ve seen it be done but I just think it’s so sad that these are babies I mean good God 17 18 16-year-olds getting life sentences it’s just really sad to me

    • Well there it is kids trying to cope with adult situations when they have no idea how to, so there BRUHS tell em to get a gun and if it ain’t going your way shoot em, when their still wet behind the ears, WANNABES,THEIR PARENTS SHOULD BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE for them

  6. If one attacks a law enforcement officer unlawfully, sentences should be automatic. Minimum 25 years, even if you spit on one.

  7. As much as I think that kid is awful, that whomever gave that kid lube should be repremanded. It’s completely inappropriate. He shouldn’t be fired, but that’s really unprofessional
