Tullahoma (TN) Police use the “he had a gun” cliché to murder Mark Luttrell, Jr.

December 29, 2018

Mr. Mark Luttrell Jr., also known as “Cornbread,” with his wife Brittany and their two daughters.

UPDATE January 8, 2019: Tullahoma Police Chief Paul Blackwell and Captain George Marsh placed on “paid administrative leave”

This has nothing to do with the murder of Mr. Mark Luttrell Jr…or so the City of Tullahoma says. The two of them apparently did something to soften the consequences for Jonathan Paul Blackwell, the Chief’s son, for a car accident in November. A press release by the city says the investigation by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation  is ongoing and that both cops will remain on paid leave until it concludes. No details about the accident were in the press release.

Interestingly and ironically, Chief Blackwell just posted an article on the City of Tullahoma website last week entitled “Qualities of a Police Officer.” It reads, “I would expect descriptions such as courageous, honest, and ethical, and you would be correct with these expectations.” The article concludes, “tell an officer how much you appreciate what they do each and every day.” Jonathan Paul Blackwell, 26, was also arrested in 2014 for selling weed to an undercover Coffee County deputy.

Meanwhile we’re told that at both the wake and funeral of Mark Luttrell, Detective Johnny Gore of the Tullahoma Police sat in his parked car across the street to essentially spy on the family and force them to feel the presence of the people who killed their loved one. Gore also took pictures at the funeral home and cemetery when Luttrell was laid to rest. The family refused the customary police escort to the cemetery. Instead they had a convoy of six motorcycles follow the hearse.

When the line of vehicles got close to the police station, everyone began honking their horns. Police started pulling over family members one-by-one, with one family member reporting that the cops slammed him against a cop car because he saluted the cop shop as they passed it. Again, all for honking their horns at the police station.

The tape from Walmart when Luttrell was killed, of course, still has not been released. Tullahoma cops are obviously doctoring the tape to fit their BS narrative. But its highly unlikely it will ever be released to the public as its hard to make a black cop look white, and hard to make a man appear to “reach for a gun” before he’s murdered by police thugs. It will be months before Tullahoma cops and TBI actually say anything about the murder, as they expect everyone to forget about it over time. We’ll continue updating.

UPDATE January 2, 2019: We have written a follow-up story on this case: Mark Luttrell Jr: A Tullahoma (TN) Tale of Nazi Cops, Aryan Murder, and Endless Rumors.

However we’ll continue to post updates on the actual murder of Mr. Luttrell and the murderous cop here.

UPDATE December 31, 2018: When Nashville cop Andrew Delke shot and killed a fleeing, running Daniel Hambrick on July 26, the Nashville Police Department used the “he had a gun” line.

The Nashville Police got endless “atta-boys” from the copsucking community. But they were apparently unaware that surveillance video captured the whole thing.

Nashville District Attorney Glenn Funk knew there was no way of defending the cop, particularly and ironically since the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in the 1985 Tennessee vs. Garner decision that cops cannot shoot fleeing suspects unless there is a “good faith belief” the suspect poses a danger. The video completely exposed Nashville Police lies and Delke was charged with criminal homicide in September. He was booked and released on $25,000 bond.

Unfortunately the preliminary hearing for Delke to face the charges has been postponed THREE times now, with the next one scheduled for January 4. The delays are a bad sign, as cops and judges may be maneuvering to somehow get the charges dropped. Regardless, once the tape was released, the truth came out. Tullahoma Police need to release the tape in the Luttrell case now. We’ll continue updating as we learn more.

UPDATE December 31, 2018: We’ve been covering these types of stories for 12 years, so the sardine (fishy) smell is strong from the start. This “pulled a gun” crap these cops are trying to pass off simply isn’t believable. Walmart has surveillance cameras and we could know the truth today. But cops have to get their lies straight, stall for several months, and hope people just forget about these cases. Cops ALWAYS show video immediately to the public when people pull guns on them so they can look like heroes when they murder. This is standard U.S. police state protocol.

A Facebook user left an interesting comment on the Tennessee Bureau of Investigations page. Just another piece to the puzzle. We’ll continue updating as we learn more.


TULLAHOMA, TENN. — Americans of the white variety, particularly in Confederate states like Tennessee, are some of the most confused and strange people in the world. The Second Amendment and the right to protect yourself from government enforcers and anyone else is sacrosanct (as it should be) with said crowd; that is until it involves their gods in cop costumes.

Mr. Mark Luttrell, Jr. was shopping at the local Walmart on North Jackson Street around 11 p.m. last night. Tullahoma cops allegedly received a call from a Walmart employee saying Luttrell, 34, was in the store. Somehow said Walmart employee knew Luttrell was wanted for some alleged crime. Tullahoma cops approached Luttrell and he “pulled a gun,” according to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigations (TBI). This prompted the cops to shoot Luttrell, killing him instantly. Of course the cops, whose names are being protected, were immediately rewarded for the kill with paid vacations, aka “paid administrative leave.”

Heartbreaking: Mr. and Mrs. Luttrell’s 6-year-old daughter cries herself to sleep staring at photo of her father. Family photo provided.

Cops continually use the regurgitated “he had a gun” thing, almost more now than the “I feared for my life,” to kill Americans with impunity and to get endless accolades from the copsucking community that uses these incidents as porn for masturbation. Owning a gun is perfectly legal in most U.S. jurisdictions. There are also cameras everywhere inside Walmarts, so all these “forensic scientists” this TBI says they are now using to figure out what happened, are completely unnecessary. It’s just cool, interesting language to use for the copsucking community that watches far too much TV. This type of language also makes cops sound like legitimate, community protectors (which all rational people know is not the case).

But let’s say, for the sake of argument, Luttrell did pull a gun. He didn’t fire a shot. Again, copsuckers will probably forward their “suicide by cop” card that they also frequently use to defend their beloved gods. Why pull a gun if you’re not going to shoot it…that is if he really had/pulled a gun at all? Nobody in their right mind wants to be kidnapped, tortured, and/or killed by government enforcers with a well-documented, consistent history of primitive, feral behavior. Thus Luttrell’s action would have been justified IF he really did pull a gun and if he shot the police state enforcers.

Walmart released a statement as follows:

We are grateful none of our customers or associates were injured or involved in this isolated incident. During this ongoing investigation, we will continue to work with the Tullahoma Police Department and the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and refer any additional questions to them.

Mr. Luttrell was known as “Cornbread” to those who knew him. He was a family man who now has two daughters who will grow up without their father. State-run media always try and make every victim of police state murders out to be harden criminal rapist-murderers to satisfy their audiences, so any and everything they print needs to be taken with a grain of salt. It wouldn’t be surprising at all if the alleged warrant out on Mr. Luttrell was for something like unpaid fines, weed, or some other non-violent, victimless drug “crime.” But again, there may be no warrant at all; just some Walmart employee and a local cop working together to kill a man.

The inevitable “justified” disposition should come quickly in this case, so the killers will only get 2-3 weeks of paid vacation despite expecting much more.

We’ll continue to update as we learn more.

    Paul Blackwell, suffers from the little man’s syndrome. He was given an opportunity, and he was terrible, at the Manchester prison, where he was a captain, as I hear stories from officers who worked under him. I personally know this idiot Blackwell, and I was mistreated by him, by his police officers and detectives. They are a bunch of thugs, punks, who are given power and authority, but they misuse it, and abuse it against innocent people. I predicted Blackwell’s fall, 6 years ago. I said that in his face, and to other people. He is a hypocrite, a politician, a liar, a disgrace as a father and as an officer. But the blame goes to the mayor and alter men of this town, who despite complaints from the people of Tullahoma, they have been supporting and protecting the idiot police chief and his officers. Because of people like Blackwell, his punks and the city mayor Lane Curlee and alternen, we have to live with the stigma of many negative and embarrassing names. I hope that they get back, to themselves and their families, all the pain and suffering that they have caused to other people. If it was up to me, I would pass a punishment, appropriate to their injustice.

    With the way technology is tbi and their csi tech guys can manipulate the footage to make it seem like it was a justified shooting I dont think the time frames would match up but that’s why their buying time on releasing the footage so they can manipulate each frame shot it makes sense if you think about it… if that is the case news channels need to mention it lawyers need to mention it so they can get someone to see if the footage has been tampered with… rest easy bread

    January 8, 2019 at 6:45 pm

    Mark’s life did matter. #JUSTICEFORMARK. May none of you nay sayers ever have to deal with a unjust and corrupt law enforcement, such as TPD. They pick and choose who they harass. I’ve seen first hand that they are infact corrupt and have the attitude that they themselves are above the law & I’ve also seen a decent cop or 2
    But to slander a man you didnt know? It’s all a bunch of he said, she said bullshit. Did you know the man to come to the conclusion he was a bad man? Nah, you just read a story and ran with it. Oh, he made some mistakes in life so he is guilty? Nah, there’s a reason he didn’t go to court. Perhaps he forgot or hey here’s a thought, the officers more than willing to shoot and kill him may have had just a little bit to do with it. Or hey here’s another one. Where’s the warrent? Oh, that’s right. They are the law so they dont have to produce evidence to the public. It’s all hear say. Why is it being investigated if it’s an open and shut case?! They straight up let the man bleed to death, on top of shooting him. This could be your friend, or family next. SHOW US A VIDEO. I BET THIS MAN DIDNT EVEN PULL A GUN. It’s called a taser with more than one officer which they had and they broke protocols in a community grocery store around alot of other bystandard citizens. SO MUCH FOR PROTECTING THE COMMUNITY. THEIR IDEA IS DOING AS THEY PLEASE. THIS STORY IS ALL WRONG IN SO MANY WAYS. PRAYERS FOR THE LUTTRELL FRIENDS AND FAMILY. MAY THE INVESTIGATION GO ON AND GIVE THE COMMUNITY PEACE AND A DECENT LAW ENFORCEMENT THAT WILL ACTUALLY DO THEIR JOBS INSTEAD OF BEING CORRUPT AND HARRASS PEOPLE THAT ARENT EVEN CRIMINALS. CHEERS TO THE NEW CHIEF OF POLICE.

Small town judgemental busy bodies that pick a version of the truth and run with it. Everybody makes mistakes. We need to know that when we die, we face the final judge. Pray for the survivors that somehow they can find peace and the children can grow up healthy and happy.

      Okay People I’ve been reading a lot of news articles about the shooting that took place inside the Walmart in Tullahoma,Tn. And I for one do not agree with the way the Police handled the situation at hand .My Uncle God Bless his Soul who was a Cop in a number of states though out his life would be the first to tell you that the way the Police handled the situation could of been handled in a non lethal way first of all in a Public Place such as Walmart which is open 24 hours a day they should of had tasers out instead of live rounds Police only spose to fire Live Rounds If Live Rounds are fire at them and from everything I have read no such shots where fired by suspect and second why in the fuck are you going to shot your gun in a public place when you are simply there to pick up a man on a warrant…Regardless of what ever happen if they feel they where in fear of there lives like they said then they should of stood down made a barricade surrounding the area and called in SWAT to bring a end to the situation but did they do that no…all they did was Open Fire in a Public place what if somebody else got in the line of fire another customer or another employee….I am deeply sadden.as to the way the Police Handled themselves and my thoughts and prayers go out to the Family and Friends of the Man that was taken away from this world…This is makeing me not want to trust Police anymore who are spose to be there to Protect and Serve us… . That is all thank you and God Bless

Tullahoma police better watch there backs because they took the life of the wrong person and will get what’s coming to them. Mark you will be truly missed and always respected by all the brothers and sisters and all your family and friends. R.I.P MARK LUTTTELL JR WE WILL SEE YOU AGAIN BROTHER

The streets was greater fuck u TPD. Rest easy mark this shit aint over

    January 3, 2019 at 10:08 am

    I think all the friends and family of Mark jr. Should start a picket line, demanding for Walmart to release the video from inside the store on Friday night at 10:40 pm. Any other time if the suspect had a gun they would have immediately showed the video surveillance tape….in marks case they haven’t yet. This is bull shit, we have the right to know about the man they say is a criminal…hell down here we all are criminals, cause the tpd and ccsd work together to make everyone life here miserable. All the cops here are useless bastards. Fuck the police!!! I love u Britt and give the girls kisses. and again I say FUCK THESE STUPID ASS POLICE WANNA BE MOTHER FUCKERS….IT OK CAUSE KARMA WILL TAKE CARE OF ALL U PIG BASTARDS.

  12. January 1, 2019 at 9:58 pm

    So sorry for your loss and my prayers are with you and your babies.
    I don’t believe what TPD did was right, they could use tasers instead of deadly force especially up in a public place. What were they thinking 🤔, putting others in danger like that???? Seriously!!!
    I watch way too many cop shows I guess but this situation should have been handled differently.

      That’s a pretty sick comment… His children will grow up and could possibly see these comments and your okay with that… Maybe he was some kind of criminal but that criminal is someone else’s son, brother, cousin, uncle, father and possibly someone’s fiancee/ husband. Wishing death on someone you don’t like is incredibly disgusting. I hope and pray you never lose anyone whom you love and care about that are close to you. I hope you never have to experience the pain that this family are experiencing now… He could be a criminal or he may not be, who cares? Why not taze the man and then take him into custody? Why kill him? Things could have escalated and the officers could have injured several others including a child. Why a fatal shot if he did “pull a gun”. Why not shoot him in arm, or leg to take him down? I have no idea who this man is or anything, but I know I’ve lost someone dear to me by murder. And I definitely would not like to see horrible things posted on social media about him if they had anything bad to say. And for the simple fact your not using your real name to post your comment says a lot about you. You must be one of those who have behind a computer screen and talks a lot of shit without doing anything. Good luck to ya tho.

      Fuck you dude. He’s more of a man than you’ll ever think of being! He was a good man who would do anything for his family. Like, getting groceries from Walmart for his wife and kids👌🏻. Too bad he isn’t here for you to say it to his face. It’s real low for someone to talk shit about a man who isn’t here to take up for himself. So with that being said, in my opinion, your disrespectful ass doesn’t deserve to breathe the same air as “good humans”. Clearly you didn’t know him, cause he was one hell of a man, and I’ll stand up for him any day.

      P.S. Its real fucking cute you didn’t use your real name, ya pussy!

    Fyi he was wanted for murder. And posted several rants about how he never left his house without his gun or vest. Also he has not been with his wife in years. He was dating my wife’s cousin. Who does not have custody of her own kids because she is hooked on meth. He also has not seen his kids in over a year. Did he deserve to die? Absolutly not!! Did the cops handle it wrong! 100 percent! But y’all are making this guy out to be a saint. And he was very far from that. If you would report that he was wanted for murder than it would be a much more fair assesment of the situation

    Well FYI this is something that I overheard that bounty hunters for weeks had been on lookout for him and Evey police office in surrounding counties were told to use deadly force OE whtaver they needed to to bring him down only BC he is a big guy and has a reputation of getting shit done lol!!! So what they say is irralavent to me now and I believe that they did what they wanted to BC “they can” … Lutrell was a criminal but he also was a good man to some people and he may have done wrong to some and made mistakes but why should police departments decide who lives and dies!!!! Let me say one thing I will be very surprised if they didn’t use that saying “he pulled a gun” lol I am now saying what everyone here is scared too The TPD and surrounding areas PD are crooks and if u don’t work for them or with them ur going to prison or dying!!!! I have heqrs and seen too much here in these towns.

If I was after a wanted demon ( if He was) and he reached in his pocket or declined to follow instructions well then this is what happens.

    Hi Bob,

    We really don’t care if victims of police state malice are Bloods, Crips, Nazis, Zionists, or nuns. Cop thuggery effects all Americans and it is the one and only issue in this country that should unite us all. Police need to let us all hate each other in peace. Thank you for commenting and Happy New Year!

      I seriously thought that reply was a joke made by Bob. I’ve had the same thing happen in a city near Tullahoma. Was sentenced to jail because the cops asserted my e-cig was a “drug that could not be tested by today’s technology” and had to be bailed out. AFTER I WAS BLOOD TESTED. It makes me mad and, honestly, makes it easier to believe the cop is in the wrong but…you know what? After thinking about all I went through. It doesn’t seem like much of a joke at all.

    I feel like the cops think they are above the law. This is a tragedy to his family and friends. I didn’t know the man but to be shot and killed while shopping was a very senseless act . Cowardly act!!!! Imagine what the wife is having to tell their children, who lost their dad cause he was at Wal-Mart shopping. Their is plenty of other options to use first then deadly force. . Even if the man was wanted. This is America , to be killed cold blooded by a cop is not right. . This world really needs a wake up call. Cop is to protect and serve. Not kill unless there life’s feel threatened. And I don’t think it was in this case. Further more the Walmart footage should be released to the public if the cop has nothing to hide. . Y’all took a husband, a father away from a family. For no apparent reason. . And cops wonder why people don’t trust them ….. Release the footage !!!!!

    Well this story is just shaming the south from the beginning and it truely shows how ignorant people really are why are we considered strange and confused? This just shows that America has gone to absolute shit and honestly it’s because of stories like this and people that shame the south or call us stupid. People take advantage of their titles and it’s ended with two innocent daughters without a father and a distraught mother as any mother would be. So here’s a big congratulations to tullahoma for taking advantage of their titles even if u thought this person had a gun there is absolutely no reason why he is dead police officers are taught and trained on specific areas of the body a person can be shot and be brought down but still lives this has malicious intent written all over it but will be overlooked because he is a cop but in my opinion an eye for an eye a tooth for a tooth. The police officer needs to be set up in the exact situation that he put this man in.

    Hi Heather. We really appreciate and respect your comment, so I want to reply.

    The OP-NAT EYE exists because simply “reporting” police state murders like this does nothing in the grand scheme. 6,000 Americans have been killed by cops since 2013 by our count, and nothing changes. In fact cop worship has become even more fanatical in 2018-19. We like to believe our content has forced many district attorneys and judges to take action against malicious, malevolent cops over the years and we will continue. But trust me, if you go back and read our stories from 2007-today, you’ll find that the copsucking community of all regions, races, and creeds get equal treatment from us, as it is them who facilitate and encourage this police state culture.

    Thank you again for your thoughtful comment and have a Happy New Year!

      I tell u I’m glad y’all are looking in to this because tpd shot another man not even a year ago 5 times he was Down on the ground face first and they still shot him 5 times but thank God he made it threw it .so the tpd thanks they can pull their guns and shoot people when they want and one of the laws is that the tazer has to be out and deployed before they pull the leathel weapons out and the bullets fly

    A year or 2 ago they killed a guy who didnt have a gun. He was wanted wth warrants and tried to run. He did have a knife. But he wasnt running towards them he was running away so they just shot him. Its crazy.

    I’m sure if he didn’t have a gun the police where more then happy to let him have one of there spares after they shot a unarmed man.just so they can use the he had a 🔫 bullcrap if people don’t think cops would do things like this then they need to wake up and smell the coffee Probally more crooked cops on the take than there is crooks in jail

    My cousin loved him like a son. That speaks volumes to me. She’s salt of the earth kind of person. This sounds and smells dirty. I hope the cops are held accountable.

    R.i.p mark Lutrell ,,,my heart goes out to those two innocent little girls, and to his family and friends,, who will always be wondering what really happen. None of us will truly ever know. But those that do , judgement day will come …and there’s no way of covering it up before God.

      My uncle was the one that was shot 5 times on East Moore Street and the cop that shot him was his own cousin and he was going around telling people if he ever saw my uncle he would be a dead man and now my uncle is facing attempted murder of a police officer just because he said “he had a gun” but they cant produce any video evidence that he pulled a gun.

    Once again! I worked as an armed guard. If I thought someone was drawing on me I wouldn’t hesitate. Unless you know the facts it’s all hearsay. I mean really in the heat of the moment between your life and death not to mention, the safety and security of Walmart patrons. Law enforcement never knowing what a criminal will or wont do. In addition to all the shooting rampages if drug users and mentally unstable people.
    Would you defend yourself?? I’m guessing no you wouldn’t right?

    Mark was a sweet person I have known him for a long time he should not have been killed I feel so bad for Brittany and those two little girls mark loved them and now those babies have to grow up without mark those cops had no right to do what they did so sad praying for the family! Fly high Mark Luttrell JR. You will be missed love you bro!

      Yes. As a matter of fact, rumors had it that he tried selling his wife drugs to set her up. Mark made him look like a bitch in front of his friends. This was payback! Mark my words that dude called out of revenge!

    For one not everybody in the south are the same. We all dont live on the same brain wave. Some of us does have common sense and some just dont know how to use it. I’m truly sorry Mr.Luttrell was killed and I told my husband that it sounded fishy and that someone in the store knew of him. Its a shame that everybody has to be shamed just because a couple bad apples are in the bunch. Its not my fault nor anybody elses that this happened except for the person that called the police. That person is the one that needs to be cut down, Not everybody in the south. So the next time you want to cut somebody down, Think before you do because its not all of us that has crap for brains.

        Agree. Whoever wrote this article needs to be banned from submitting articles. This article breaks all the rules of good journalism. Know your facts and double check those facts before printing them. This writer just set themselves up as judge and jury before knowing all the details. Absolutely no common sense used here.

    Jacob Wilson is the one who call the tip in once he seen Mark Luttrell (Cornbread) at Walmart that night. Jacob Wilson has been heard around town saying Mark Luttrell had a hit out on him. Jacob Wilson is a snitch for Tullahoma Police and the Coffee County Sheriff’s department.

      We’ll maybe if somebody had a hit out on you, you would call the cops too dumbass. Sounds to me like the dude was trouble and needed to be in jail. Which is why the cops should have been called. Whether he was buying drugs or selling drugs or a gang member or whatever, he had a warrant on him and should have been in jail. If we turn a blind eye when we see trouble, then we’re not doing the right thing as decent members of society. I would’ve called the cops too if I recognize somebody that’s wanted by the police.

    That was my husband an my two lil girls daddy. They did not have to do him that way they hated him other people have even heard some of Tullahoma police say they were going to kill him the first chance they got. I got a picture of my daughter last night where she fell asleep crying staring at a picture of her daddy. I don’t know how I’m going to raise two kids without him he always fixed everything and made everything better we are lost without him!
