    This is crazy enough to make Jon Stewart's show. It's a couple of days old...and it didn't. Why am I not surprised?

    Seems like they are trying to set a precedent. An "emotionally disturbed" person who was literally playing in traffic is an easy target to intimidate. If they can find him guilty, then the next time NYPD cops accidentally hit some bystanders it won't be their fault.

    So now officers not only can fire a gun in a crowded situation at an unarmed man, but now they also can do so without anyone to answer to afterwards? Absolute bullshit.

    Whatever happened to tazers or mace?

    They did use a taser......after they shot 2 people.


    I'm not actually all that upset about them shooting, I don't know what all the guy was doing or if he might have been making threats. I'm just upset they are tryin to pin him for shooting two people when he didn't have a gun.

    The way liberals think never cease to amaze me, just when you think you have heard it all, they come up with more crap.

    It has been common practice in this country to charge a person who, through their actions, forced a poorly-executed reaction which harms another person, with whatever crimes considered appropriate for the circumstance. I know that sentence is a little hard to digest, so here's an example from real life:

    Two dudes rob a convenience store; both have guns. Shopkeeper pulls a gun and shoots one; both suspects flee. Shot suspect dies shortly later, but not before ratting out his partner. Police find and arrest his partner and charge him with manslaughter. Why? Because his reckless actions lead to the death of another person, even if it was not supposed to happen. Like it or not people get charged this way all the time.

    Biggest thing to get upset about here is NYPD has once again shown it needs to be issued rubber guns.
