    I'm not sure what to make of this. This police have their story. Some witnesses have theirs.

    Done a few news stories in my day and every time I've done one where the cops and the "victims" disagree, my research usually concludes the "victims" weren't telling the truth.

    This is a terrible thing to happen, but this cop was not Bruce Willis. They need a better story than this.

    And this guy's lawyer really need to get the old man to stop talking to the press.

    Was he about to score?

    Why was he handcuffed after he was shot and why didn't paramedics treat him?
    In another story witnesses said somebody tried to give Henry CPR and the police threatened him with a gun.

    Why was he driving with a police officer on the roof of his car?

    If I assault a cop with a deadly weapon, I don't think I have too much room to complain at any point after the moment of the assualt.

    EDIT - I meant hood.

    "When the officer sat on my car, I thought that meant he wanted me to move. So I started drag racing down the street and tried to hit all of his cop buddies."

    I think there's enough blame to go around. Just another lose-lose situation.

    Cops don't just up and leave the NYPD for the outer reaches of Westchester either on a daily basis, interested to hear why this one did.

    Is this a Last Boy Scout reference? If it is, fucking kudos. That is outstanding.

    If story is accurate then the police acted wildly irresponsibly. I know the area very well and its not a location where the police should have a heightened awareness of danger.

    The stories say that the police left the kid face down on the ground for 15 minutes without getting him medical attention. The shame of it is that the Westchester trauma center is literally 2 minutes from where this happened.

    If it took 15 minutes for them to call, then the dad has a gripe. its not the time the ambulance arrived, it's the time they called and what they called in.
