Officer taunted young man who shot at him and his son by giving him a special gift in court
A police officer taunted a Jacksonville man with a tube of K-Y Jelly personal lubricant after he was sentenced to life in prison for shooting the unnamed officer and his son in 2016.
According to Fox News, the undercover police officer was shot three times, including once in the face, by 19-year-old Kevin Rojas during a 2016 traffic stop. The officer was taking his son to school at the time.
The source informed that, fortunately, the son was not injured. The critically wounded officer, who was not named by the local sources, returned fire but did not hit Rojas.
Rojas was found guilty of numerous felonies, including attempted first-degree murder, grand theft auto, attempted manslaughter, two counts of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer on October 2017.

Following his life imprisonment sentence, the wounded officer began taunting the culprit with his shrewd remarks. He began by calling Rojas a coward at the sentencing hearing, the source reported.
“I will take those bullets instead of a fellow officer and an innocent bystander,” the officer said, according to the Florida Times-Union. “When I brought the fight back to you, you ran like a coward.”
After this, he further mocked Rojas by producing a tube of K-Y Jelly and telling him that he would “need a lot” of it in prison.
However, the officer has refused to make any comment on the allegation after he was questioned by a judge in a 30-minute hearing about the stunt.
According to the supervisors of the officer, the incident was well acknowledged by the authorities. They stated that they were aware of the incident and will address it.
