8 comments on “Sean Bell Trial and The NYPD; Al Sharpton Wins Again

  1. This is what we call a BLIVIT: 10 pounds of sh*t in a five-pound bag!

    Al Sharpton is about one thing and one thing alone: promotion of Al Sharpton at whatever cost.

    The NYT as a NEWSpaper is useless as a crocheted prophylactic. I noted the emphasis on the number of shots fired. Buried down in the “also ran” stories was one that said these cops hadn’t fired their guns in years. That in itself should indicate that these cops are not wild dogs gone on a hunting spree. But NO. The headlines are all about the number of shots fired, as if that’s terribly germane.

    What a freakin BLIVIT!

  2. PC – Seems to be working. Thanks! Probably timed out or something with my lengthy (time spent finding resources to post) post I tried twice and it failed. Will try to get stuff together and do it again.

    Code 4.

  3. The Metropolitan Police over here had a similar nightmare after shooting a Brazilian illegal immigrant who ran away from them just days after the July 7 bombings. Thank god no charges were brought against the individual cops, but sections of the press were quick to jump on the “Slam the Cops” bandwagon. If that guy *had* been a suicide bomber, they’d have been heroes for preventing a tragedy. It’s a hard enough job without outsiders second-guessing every split-second decision. (I’m not a cop by the way, just a law abiding member of the public)

  4. This article sounds like a bunch of hate as well. You speak of Al Sharpton fuming the fire and what are you doing?

    You said that those men all had criminal records, well that was not known when they opened fire.

    And who knows why he almost hit the police. They could have been afraid for there lives to begin with.

    Why they didn’t shoot like 5 times and stop. They put everyone in that neighborhood in jeapordy shooting aimlessly.

    La Toya

  5. I appreciate your visit, la Toya. I do sound a bit angry, because I am. I am angry that Mr. Sharpton finds cops guilty until proven innocent.

    Your comment that the neighborhood was in jeapordy is absolutely correct. That is as much the fault of a suspect who tries to run down a cop as it is the fault of the cops who react.

    I don’t know what happened out there. I do know that when someone like Sharpton starts up his war machine, there is no hope of a fair investigation, a fair trial, or an honest look at the incident.

    From a strictly police perspective, the answer to your inquiry about the 5 shots is that once deadly force is authorized, the number of shots is not relevant.

    Also there have been numerous studies to show that once a human perceives a deadly threat, and begins to fire, even when the threat is over, it can take several seconds for the mind to transmit the message to stop shooting. That delay is why so many shootings seem to have ‘excessive’ rounds fired.

    But I’m guessing that won’t sway Mr. Sharpton.

    Thank you for stopping by. I hope that when folks discuss issues in places like this, we can all increase our understanding.

  6. Al Sharpton has a big mouth– and he is a hypocrite–
