National guardsman shot by nypd
 
I'm just reading about this in the ny post.
It seems a nypd officer pulled over a car driven by an unarmed national guard member, and shot and killed him while his hands were on the steering wheel. Also in the car was a person in the passenger seat, and a off duty officer asleep in the back seat.
It's apparently still under investigation. http://m.nypost.com/f/mobile/news/local/unarmed_guardsman_shot_by_nypd_wanted_k3gzV54EFDh7 HeYnrTX3CI

Wonder WTF Bloomberg has to say about his officers gunning down unarmed soldiers.

There is a lot suspect of that story, but clearly that detective has a history that does include being on the wrong side of people's civil liberties as evidenced by payouts in 2001 and 2008.

If this doesn't get his ass fired AND prosecuted, well, I don't know how to finish that thought - but if there was no weapon in the car and the witness is believable in her testimony, his ass ought to get the needle. :mad:

DeFerrari said of the pursuit, “I honestly thought it was an armored car . . . At no time did they specify that they were police.“You wouldn’t expect your police officers . . . to be sticking their middle finger and yelling obscenities.”
IMHO, the money quote. It seems to me that if they wish to be treated like police, they should behave better. Act like a bunch douchebags, the public will assume that's what you are.

Cops like this are doing a terrible disservice to themselves, their fellow cops and society as a whole. Trust in government in general is extremely low. Faith that cops will do the right thing is steadily being eroded because of stories like this. The unintended consequence of douchebags on power trips could get really ugly.

As for this particular cop, if he shot an unarmed guy in cold blood, he should lose everything and spend the next 30 years in prison getting his mind (and backside) expanded.

Chalk up another one to the GNB...

Wouldn't it be a shame if it turned out

that this gaurdsman voted for Bloomberg in the last

election?

Perhaps Bloomberg should consider starting a group called:

"Mayors Against Police Guns", in order to attempt to save

his own constituency...

Thats just another reason why I wont go to NYC, I dont relate to our downstate barnacle infestation. They disarm their citizens then arm too many less than stable and poorly trained vindicators.

I will pray for that soldier tonight, so sad, what a waste.

If this story is reasonably accurate, the officer should spend the rest of his life in prison.
