The NYC Keystone Kops claim another victim.
"The detective, Hassan Hamdy, 39, a 14-year veteran assigned to the Emergency Service Unit, fired one bullet through an open window of the car,..."Begs the question, was there something visible on the victims vehicle identifying the victim as an Army reservist which could enflame the muslim detective beyond his civil call to duty?
Did they find out if he had a dog so they could kill it as well?......../s?
Detective Hassan Hamdy? Hmmmm.
This doesn’t sound good for the NYPD...not good at all.
Even one of the union spokesmen said that this shooting may be questionable (apparently, for those who didn’t read the article, the cops in one car felt they had been cut off by the victim’s car, and gave him the finger as they went around him before they stopped him - however, this is the New York Times’ account).
Looking at the other shootings, I think they were all justifiable. But this shooting is probably the one that will give Bloomberg the basis for making the cops go out unarmed as British cops do. Start the body count...
Did he have a dog costume on?
These aren’t the cops you see on “BlueBloods”.
If this is as it seems then nothing short of Conviction of Murder is appropriate here.
Killed for cutting them off? In Queens? Everyone cuts everyone off in Queens.
Sounds more like an execution than a “shooting”.
We used to call this murder.
I don’t like anything about NYC.
At least in north Florida they don’t generally shoot you...they put you in handcuffs and take you to a flashlight party with a half dozen of their buddies.
The saying is “No One Says ‘No’ to the JSO”.
Just a little practice for when Ubama flips that Interwebs “off” switch and lets slip the dogs of genocide.
I, fortunately, have no direct experience with this, but it seems that many times, multiple officers will surround a suspect, all shouting conflicting orders. The person faced with that situation is essentially damned if they do and damned if they don’t.
It would seem prudent in these types of engagements, especially when pulling over someone on the freeway with no prior record (if they didn’t run the plates first, they probably should have) that one officer be pre-designated as the primary communicator and scene controller, either via rank, first on scene, or whatever, and the other officers remain silent unless making observations (such as “Gun!”).
(Did I leave anything out?)
sounds like an assassination
was there a romney bump sticker on his car?
