    Good - Death by Cops - Pulled Air Pistol on Under Cover Police - NYC

    Drug Dealer Arrested Separately Told Suspect Raising Weapon: 'They're Cops, You Idiot!'
    CBS New York
    December 9, 2012 3:49 PM


    ..................The drug dealer who was arrested initially said the suspect with the air pistol “appeared out of nowhere,” and watched as the man pulled the weapon at detectives.

    When he did so, the dealer said he told the man with the gun, “They’re cops, you idiot!”

    But the suspect pointed the air pistol at the detectives anyway, and the detectives returned fire. They fired a total of six shots, striking the suspect three times in the leg and torso.

    My Comments: With this guys record of 39 prevous arrests...in both FL and NY, the gene pool was finally chlorinized. However, the article does not state if he had procreated prior to Death by Cop. First time shooting for both Police Detectives - glad they are safe. Our legal system is very sad and did not reform nor protect him from his own stupidity

    A witness told 1010 WINS’ Carol D’Auria the detectives were too hasty to open fire on the suspect, given that the gun was not real.

    “The guy, he had a fake gun and he tried to play around with the officer. The officer, he right away killed him. Five shots or six shots,” the witness said.


    Sad thing is too many people will believe this statement and agree with it.

    The interneal investigation won't take long and the detectives will be back on the street soon, as they should be.

    The outcome was fine. The detectives are ok and all is well.

    Not bad for the two cops, six shots fire with three hits. 50% is not a bad hit rate for a cop, just glad there were no bystanders.

    Irrespective of the perpetrator, the two Detectives have to deal with the outcome, which is tough on them.

    Thats an embarrassing way to go down. Id be too embarrassed to even let myself die for pulling out an air gun, let alone having to go to prison with everyone knowing that. I can at least almost respect a criminal who at least knows when he's caught and takes the punishment

    Good - Death by Cops - Pulled Air Pistol on Under Cover Police - NYC

    I can say, from first hand experience in my job, kids that claim to be "gang bangers" are coming in here and stealing airsoft pistols constantly. They look amazingly real and I believe the officers were justified in defending themselves. They have seconds to make that decision, and the public has all the time in the world to pick it apart.

    Unbelievable! This "witness" should be imprisoned life without parole for felony stupidity.
