A Metropolitan Police Department officer accused of drunkenly opening fire on a car full of people that included transgenders will be held without bond as he awaits trial.
It sounds like hes a dangerous person, said Jeffrey Light, an attorney with D.C. Trans Coalition. Im not convinced that just because hes a police officer hes not going to do it again.
D.C. Superior Court Judge Ann O'Regan Keary on Friday ordered Officer Kenneth D. Furr held without bond. He faces one charge of assault with a dangerous weapon stemming from an Aug. 26 shooting that occurred while the officer was off duty.
During Officer Furrs preliminary hearing, defense attorney Harold Martin questioned whether witness accounts were credible because several of the five people in the car admitted to drinking heavily or smoking marijuana earlier that evening. Officer Furr could have also been in fear of the individuals after he noticed their car tailing him less than an hour after he got into an altercation with one of the individuals, he said.
This represents a threatening situation to any person who is alone at that hour in the morning, Mr. Martin said.
Police officers responded to the site of the shooting, the 100 block of Pierce Street Northwest, around 5:20 a.m. after hearing a car crash and rapid-fire gunshots, MPD Detective James Freeman testified on Friday. Officer Furr, a 21-year-veteran of the police department, was standing on the hood of the victims car firing at the windshield when officers arrived on the scene, Detective Freeman said.
The officers ordered him off the car at gunpoint, he said.

And my I add I am sick and tired of it!?
The concluding sentence of the article “A breathalyzer test administered five hours after the incident registered Officer Furrs alcohol level at .15, nearly twice the legal limit.”
5 hours later he was still legally stewed, he must have been sh*t faced at the time of the shooting.
I think we all (trannies included) need to file this one under: nothing good happens after 1 AM.
So after 21 years on the job the guy snaps.Now D.C. has to do damage control.
Obviously there must have been a dog in the car otherwise why would he shoot?
From the article: “They followed him for about a half mile before the cars somehow collided and the shooting occurred.”
The officer might have been so drunk that he caused the trannie’s mission fail, thus causing a collision.
“...he caused the trannies mission fail....”
LOL, I guess it was right there!
...accused of drunkenly opening fire on a car full of people that included transgenders will be held without bond as he awaits trial. "It sounds like he's a dangerous person," said Jeffrey Light, an attorney with D.C. Trans Coalition.
Democrat City is certainly synonymous with Bizarro World.
A tranny dog

Ever see two boy dogs go - umm, never mind.

Maybe not THAT dangerous, when you are standing point blank range on the car hood blasting away into a car full of five targets, and STILL can’t hit anybody. Either that or these gays were darn good dodgeball players.
