This doesn’t sound good for the NYPD...not good at all.

NOT TRUE! It will be ruled a good shoot. I guarantee it. There is almost never a case where a cop on duty shoots and kills someone where it is not ruled a good shoot. Ask Amadou Diallo ask Renaldo Cuevas Ask the nine people shot by police at the empire state building a couple of months ago (and how quickly THAT story died, eh)

The most recent exception to this that I'm aware of was in 2006 here in Atlanta where some white cops murdered a 92 year old black woman. basically went to the wrong address shot her to death and tried to cover up what happened. They were not convicted of murder and conspiracy after the fact, but rather violation of oath of office which carries a much lesser sentence. The only reason they were prosecuted at all was they were white and shot a black woman in black run Atlanta.

If a cop murders you or a family member, the only justice that you will get is if your remaining family takes condign action on their own.

In terms of criminal prosecution you could be correct.You could even be correct in terms of the findings of a disciplinary board.But you *know* that there will be lawyers lined up out the door wanting to represent the family.Who knows what such a lawyer might turn up about the service records of the cops involved.Who knows what the lawyer might turn up on the cop with the moslem sounding name.I think it's more likely than not that the family has just won the lottery...if for no other reason than the City of New York wanting to settle this thing quietly so as to avoid "discovery".

Ask Sean Bell...another NYPD murder. It was the last straw for me, as far as giving LEOs an automatic benefit of the doubt.

And believe me, that was a last step on a long road.
