War on Cops: Mississippi officer Cpl. Derrick Couch loses eye and after he is shot point-blank in the FACE during robbery investigation

I hope this police officer pulls through. 
The anti-Cop atmosphere is the worse I’ve seen in my lifetime and I blame it all on President Obama’s community organizing activities.
Daily Mail reports a Mississippi police officer has lost an eye and has a bullet lodged in his brain after he was shot point-blank in the face while responding to an armed robbery.

Cpl. Derrick Couch is in critical condition and on a ventilator after he got out of his patrol car Saturday night to question a man suspected to have robbed a local convenience store. 

Clarksdale Mayor Bill Luckett said video from a nearby law office captured the 'harrowing' shooting.

 'As soon as the officer approached him, he just swung around and, bam!', Luckett said of the moment the suspect shot Couch. 

Before the shooting, which occurred four blocks from the convenience store, the video shows Couch's patrol car approaching two men, one of whom runs, according to Luckett.
'I'm not sure if Officer Crouch saw him run or not,' Luckett said. 

'Then you see the officer's lights turn and illuminate the second guy, who's walking...with a noticeable limp.' 

Another surveillance video from Saturday shows both suspects walking together into the store, Corner Grocery. 

Less than two minutes later they are seen leaving separately but within seconds of each other.   

Luckett said a video of a robbery that took place at Corner Grocery last month at the same store also shows a man with a limp.
