That's what it looks like on the surface ~
the dead army guy worked 2 jobs and would pick up his neighbor from work along with supporting his mom/brother. the cop (killer) had 2 judgements against him of around 250k plus each.. thats not a small amount. this was a bad cop.
I will say this: I have looked at several accounts of this incident from a variety of sources with differing perspectives and biases.
Bottom line is that an unarmed driver was shot by police and the only excuse offered by the police is that he was going for his blue and yellow drill.
As much as I want to sympathize with the police and as much as I detest Al Sharpton, I have to say that this can’t possibly be a justified shooting, based on the underlying facts as conceded by all sides.
From that point, it only looks worse and worse for the police. There really isn’t a positive spin to put on this fiasco.
“The police chased (us), sticking their middle fingers at us and screaming obscenities, said 36-year-old Diane DeFerrari, a bartender who sat in the passenger seat of Polancos car.”
“DeFarrari told the New York Post that with rifles drawn, the police officers pulled over the vehicle and ordered Polanco and his friends to put their hands up. But in an instant before Polanco had time to take his hands off the steering wheel he was shot dead.”
and, from the NY Slimes:
“On Friday evening, Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly visited Ms. Reyes (the victim’s mother) at her Corona home to express condolences.”
Anyone ever hear of a Police Commissioner personally visiting a bereaved and expressing condolences in any case of a justified shooting?
You are delusional.
