Skip to comments.3rd straight night of rioting in Brooklyn (Over young man shot by police)

An incident involving a teenager who was shot by police after he pointed a .38 at them has enraged Brooklynites and caused three straight nights of rioting.
From NY Daily News:
At least 46 demonstrators were arrested along Church Ave. in East Flatbush. Police struggled to control a hostile crowd that broke away from a planned peaceful vigil for Kimani (Kiki) Gray, 16, killed by police on Saturday night.
Gray's sister Mahnefeh was among those arrested. A police officer suffered a gash in the face when a tossed brick hit him, NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said, and a window was smashed in an inspector's car.
"They didn't have to kill him," Makaeo Williams, 18, said as police on motorcycles tracked alongside him. "I'm feeling mad inside. I'm angry. That's why I'm out here." Many in the community contest police allegations that Gray pointed a gun at cops when he was shot during a confrontation with two plainclothes officers on E. 52nd St. Saturday night. Those suspicions on the street intensified Wednesday when an autopsy report revealed Gray was hit by seven bullets -- three to the back.
It was not clear in what order the shots struck the teen or whether he had his back to the police when they opened fire .

Better to be judged by 12 than carried by six.
Years ago I would have been a typical reactionary about this, today not so much. But then again I want a very tall wall built between NYC and America and zero immigration out of that lunatic asylum, so they are on their own, good luck.
We can comfort ourselves knowing that poor Kimani did not live to see a judge scrap the ban on supersized soft drinks.
Rioting gangs and lynch mobs are plenty of reason for standard-capacity magazines.
That’s 15+ in pistols, and 30 in carbines.
Agree...I dont care what happens to anyone in that sess pool.
Cops crooks all the same there.
As an escapee, I resent that.
I remember my Section Chief in the Army, a full blooded Cherokee himself, used to tell me, “Billy Joe (his name for me) [Lonesome], there ain’t no way you is a Yankee.” I took it as the finest compliment one man could pay another.
And they’re running photos of the 16 year old from when he was about 6...
BTW, where are all the liberal, socialist anti-gunners now with this story? After all, the minority feral yute was breaking the law and carrying an illegal hand gun! Why aren't the anti-gunners screaming about this? Why aren't they marching in minority inner city neighborhoods to disarm the gangs and confiscate illegal guns?
That is really an excellent post. Feeling is mutual.
Sorry you are still on probation, and take off that damn New York Yankees hat.
Has anyone noticed that a similar incident in Detroit resulted in no rioting?
When it comes to rioting gangs I tend to lean to the flamethrower, accompanied by “You light up my life” blared through the bullhorns.
Don’t you just love diversity. To each his own.
A real live NYC provincial. I feel honored.
Just throw some Authentic Frontier Gibberish at him and he’ll go away.
“autopsy report revealed Gray was hit by seven bullets — three to the back.”
Well, the three in the back clearly indicate a problem for the cops.
Yeh -- sure.
I just fail to see the genius that radiates from NYC or Manhattan in particular. Frail eloi pontificating about their wonderfulness surrounded by morlocks beating their chests about something or another, usually something stupid like a sports team (see movie “Super Fan”).
