Suspect Arraigned In Beating Of Off-Duty NYPD Cop « CBS New York
Anyone else see this? It almost made me sick when I watched it. How would you have reacted being on scene? If it hadn't been NYC would you have used your ccw?
"The best we can hope for concerning the people at large, is that they be properly armed."
Would I have used any weapon at my disposal instead of being put into a coma from being beaten so badly? ...YES.
Id lay odds that if you pulled a gun on that bg, that you would have had to shoot him multiple times to keep him off of you. I dont think he would have stopped simply seeing a gun aimed at him. Not in the state he was in.
"To reject the notion of expertise, and to replace it with a sanctimonious insistence that every person has a right to his or her own opinion, is silly."
Doesn't matter to me that the man was an off-duty LEO, except I wonder how he was overcome. Did the suspect sucker punch him to spark it off in a way that the LEO did not see it escalating?
It's unfortunate and the suspect is a piece of garbage that belongs in a cage.

Are off duty cops allowed to carry in NYC?

i think so.. but even if he could carry off duty he wouldn't have been doing so at that time. The article said he was drunk (also was at the night club). doubt he would be carrying that night if he was allowed to anyway.
Yes its called the LEOSA
The Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act (LEOSA) is a United States federal law, enacted in 2004, that allows two classes of persons—the "qualified law enforcement officer" and the "qualified retired law enforcement officer"—to carry a concealed firearm in any jurisdiction in the United States, regardless of state or local laws, with certain exceptions.

i was upset after watching this... I lived in NYC for 18yrs before i joined the Military. These type of "thugs" need to be put behind bars.
