VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - But police say that sentence was not enough.
"The last two or three years has been open season on law enforcement. You would think we would have a judge that would send a message, if you shoot a cop you're gonna pay the price," said Chief Brian Childress.
19 body cameras captured the shooting scene in July of 2016.
Officer Randall Hancock responded to the 911 call about a vehicle break-in.
"What does that tell every officer out here? Going call to call to call. That if you shoot an officer you get 10 years in prison? Really?" said Childress.
