    BAD: Off duty LEO and woman shot

    Details are still sketchy, but it appears to be a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. It was cold, wet and windy last nite, but this isn't the greatest part of town.

    In this case, there's not enough information to know yet. It could have just been a random act but I'm not a big believer in coincidences.

    Police said the officer was driving and the woman was a passenger in his car. They drove up to Grandy's Coney Island when a person began firing shots at the restaurant.
    It may have been the store was the target of the attack... disgruntled employee, not hired for job?

    And the cop may have been on a thing we call a "Date," where no money is exchanged directly between the parties for services yet to be determined.

    Make no mistake, "value" can be exchanged on (or subsequent to)these things we call dates. But they are not necessarily quid pro quo, and it can take considerable time for remuneration to occur.

    Regardless, this sounds like a drive by against the restaurant.
    It could be worse.

    So what does this tell us? I gotta' believe that the LEO was carrying, knew where he was, was familiar with the area, and was not expecting this to happen. Even if he was operating in condition orange, it's pretty difficult NOT to get shot when something (random?) like this occurs.

    Your best strategy/bet is to avoid potentially high risk area/people, eg. 7/11's at night, bar scene after midnight, pumping gas alone at 3 am, flash mobs, gang bangers, etc.

    This indeed is fishy

    Who said the officer was "married" . The highest divorce rate is among LEO's. Since they never say who the woman is, it could have been his wife, his sister, his mother, his aunt, girlfriend, ......

    not enough info to know.

    It does show how being armed, and trained, doesn't protect you when SHTF at any moment.
