Coach is Right ^ | 12/9/13 | Doug Book

This one is a gem.

Two of the NYPD’s finest decided to open fire on an unarmed, mentally disturbed man outside New York’s Port Authority Bus Terminal. His capital offense–wandering through traffic.

Though these defenders of the realm missed their target, they did manage to shoot two women who had the impudence to be on the scene.

And now for the MOST unbelievable part of the story-–New York’s DA has charged the mentally disturbed man with...

So? According to the usual suspects here, the most important thing is that the cops got home safely.
Dogs and bystanders not important...

Most NYC cops I have encountered were arrogant jerks. Glad I dont live there.

You forgot "We don't know the whole story." that's a favorite with the FR jackboot licking crew.

Only the police can be trusted with guns. They receive special training, you know.

Criminal charges against the cops would be appropriate, but will NEVER happen.

Concealed carry permit holders are held to a higher standard and therefore have to use better judgement and skill than LEO’s. We will be held personally responsible for every bullet we fire.

There probably is more to this story, but it will be really difficult to justify these facts.

390 miles tomorrow. Fly or drive. Hmmmm let’s see.

Drive, 6 hours, almost all interstate, not many bottlenecks along the way. Work at home in the morning. Enjoy breakfast with wife. Leave at noon, listen to Rush, listen to Hannity, there by dinner. May listen to oldies and sing at the top of my lungs for a bit. Maybe see some interesting things along the road. Arrive a little tired but not bad.

Fly, allow 5 hours, 1 hour to airport, be sure to get there 2 hours B4 flight cause you never know, 1 hour flight time, 1 hour to get out of the airport, catch a cab and get to the hotel.
Strip off boots, belt and coat, move computer to tray, be sure to remove Leatherman and all change from briefcase, leave pocket knife at home etc. Stand in X-ray, hold arms over head like a criminal, be passive, grit teeth but try not to look angry, risk being frisked by Fat Albert and / or having all contents of bags manhandled etc. Oh boy! What fun!
Fly red-eye or late afternoon.
Up at 0430 for red eye, got to allow for 48 miles of rush hour traffic to go the airport and get there too early, about 1000. Kill rest of day at hotel working on something.
Leave the house at 1300 for afternoon flight and arrive by about 1800.
Arrive at destination having been run through the mill, tired, frustrated, angry... yeah buddy.

Return

Drive, leave in evening and drive until I get tired, hotel if necessary. Up early, drive to office.

Fly, leave at 1900 and maybe arrive home by midnight.

Oh, and did I mention that the only carrier is United? Blech!

I remember this show. Most of the episodes were filmed in the Bronx. You could spot the old 3rd Av el in some scenes.

Yup, as I said. These facts will be hard to overcome. And BTW,
I don’t defend cops without facts either.

You got that right. A few years ago city cops here discharged multiple rounds into a car of a mentally disturbed young woman who had passed out in her car in the parking lot of a gas station. Of course, the woman was killed. They spotted a revolver on the seat next to her and when one of the cops smashed out the window some of the others started opening caps, then the rest did so. I don’t think any of the cops received anything more than retraining on the the use of deadly force, but the woman is permanently dead.

He was annoying the cops. That can be a felony in New York.
I s*** you not.
Fleeing in the commission of a felony, a cop can use lethal force.

One of my childhood best friends is a trooper. Never used guns growing up and talks about how he qualifies at the low end of the spectrum.

I’m fairly confident he wouldn’t know how to operate his handgun if it had a safety located anywhere besides on the trigger (Glock).
