Wait, there are cops all over Manhattan, plus cameras directly feeding to NYPD HQ. Oh and guns are illegal. But still 9 down, with the cops around the corner
Police were apparently out on a routine patrol when somebody flagged down the officer to alert them of the shooting. When the officers turned the corner, they encountered the gunman, shot and killed him, 1010 WINS’ Carol D’Auria reported.
No doubt Bloomberg and police commissioner Kelly’s response will be a call to make guns more illegal
It was two cops on the anti terror task force. That means they were toting full auto weapons. We all know how poorly trained people who are armed with automatic weapons respond in a firefight: Spray the area with automatic weapons fire.
Don’t forget the shootings yesterday afternoon in the Bronx (which is part of the Five Boroughs that make up NYC, and fall in Bloombergs fiefdom, and therefore its ban on handguns…) RIGHT IN FRONT OF YANKEE STADIUM, when two hotdog cart vendors had an argument that escalated into a firefight….
With Bloomberg admitting that many of the bystanders were shot by the NYPD, I’m surprised that no one here has piped in about the “safer” 11 pound trigger pull weight on NYPD’s sidearms…. 2 pound gun, 11 pounds to fire… It’s safer that way!!!
The trigger pull weight have any effect on shot placement? I’ll wait for the final results, but it looks like the police were possibly responsible for most of the casualties….”friendly fire” wounding bystanders.
There’s your NYPD 9mm – spray and pray, with nine innocent bystanders down and bleeding on the sidewalk. Have you seen the pictures? Blood streaming on the sidewalk. Would this have happened with .357 Magnum, .45 ACP, or even .38 Special +P?
Bloomberg is a douchebag. What a joke! No elderly or children were shot? You asshole, so, it’s okay for NYPD to gun down middle-aged people? GTFOMA! The mayor is a psychopathic nutcase!
You’re looking at NINE lawsuits, you depraved bastard! Pay them out of your own pocket, you billionaire butthead! You’re in charge, take the hit yourself, you cocksucker! You can afford it, you little billionaire douchebag!
I should have said, “You little, billionaire, know-it-all douchebag.” And then thrown in “cocksucker” for good measure. And this is the little cocksucker who wants to dictate what kind of soda that people can drink? Fuck you, Bloomberg! You can’t even manage your own city! Your NYPD guns down innocent bystanders to criminals at a 9:1 ratio, and you rant and rave against law-abiding gun owners? YOU-ARE-A-TOTALITARIAN-FUCKING-NUTCASE! FUCK YOU DOUCHEBAG!
Mr. Bloomberg, lease run for the office of President of the United States, so that we can vote to send you to fucking Cuba! (On a floating log, and please don’t mind the sharks, after all, they need to eat too, don’t they?)
