    Good on the cop. I had to place my thumb around the hammer of a revolver to keep from getting shot many moons ago. I wasn't a happy camper! Not trying to hi-jack, just a personal experience.

    Quick thinking made this a good outcome. NY is cesspool, hopefully this idiot is off the streets for a long while.

    Good job!! That takes fast hands. Glad to hear a 'happy' ending. It was only sullied by the broken finger, which is definitely the better outcome.

    That dinger up finger didnt hurt as much as getting shot in the gut.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    Quick thinking on Sgt Millers part.

    This isnít the first legal trouble for Graves, who lives just four blocks from where he was pulled over. He has served time for murder in the second degree, robbery, forgery, and criminal possession of a weapon according to a police source.
    Just think, he'll probably get 2 years for this one, and time off for good behavior!

    actually the BG has an extensive record including a murder conviction, yet the courts let him run free

    unfortunately this may not be far from the outcome, our courts are the ones who are not doing their job of putting people like this away for a very long time.

    It doesn't do any good to catch them if the courts are going to let them go!

    Quick thinking saves the day.

    This would be one of the times where a thorough beating of a suspect (within an inch of his worthless life) could be overlooked as a necessary evil. "He just wouldn't stop resisting, & could've had another weapon."

    The POS was attempting to kill the officer. Why did the officer (or his partner) not pull his weapon and defend himself?

    Don't know 'cause I wasn't there, but most of the time, it's just an instinctive reaction. You're not really thinking about it. As for his partner trying to shoot the bad guy while he's struggling with a fellow officer? That could end up really messy.

    Now that's thinking on yer toes...er...fingers
    If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

    Does a 2nd degree murder count as a felony? I can't recall, but if so, added to attempted murder (this time- AND of an officer) he also gets the bonus 'felon in possession of a firearm' on top of it. So, I think he might be screwed this time. (no pun intended there, but I just noticed it )
