It sure wouldn't be the first time the NYPD shot an unarmed man in an undercover operation gone awry. See "Diallo, Amadou" and "Dorismond, Patrick" for examples of this.
The weapon was a car. Hello!!!!!
What article did you read? People get shot at all the time, because like the idiots they are, they choose to try and use their vehicle as a weapon.
No weapon found? Hell, the weapon had his fingerprints all over the steering wheel.
(2) If Diallo had bothered to learn a few rudimentary phrases of English during his illegal stay in the US he would be in one piece today.
(3) If Dorismond had not committed assault against an undercover police officer, he would be in one piece today.
Which falsified Sharpton media event are you going to trundle out next? Eleanor Bumpurs?
In the Diallo case it wasn't an "undercover" operation. It was the SCU street crime unit looking for a man who had committed 51 rapes in the area.
The SCU no longer exists and NYC is experiencing a rise in crime because of it.
Thousands of undercover arrests and you find three to support your bias?
