Maybe they should raise the difficulty of the entrance exams back up, for police.

Gunman: 1 NYPD:4 with 6 assists.

one highly trained person with a conceal and carry permit CAN change the outcome of a gunman shooting into a crowd.

I suggest buying the NYPD a bunch of computers and some copies of Ghost Recon. THAT should take care of everything!

All nine people injured in Friday's shooting in front of the Empire State Building were wounded by police gunfire, New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly told reporters Saturday.

ok, so basically the NYPD just shoots everyone in the gotdamn area because hey, why the f*ck not, right? is that really what the story here is?
 
2012-08-25 04:41:40 PM
Why is it that the NYPD has no problems putting 50 bullets in a black man for having a comb, but does not finish off these nine? When you start a task you complete it.

cman: Why is it that the NYPD has no problems putting 50 bullets in a black man for having a comb, but does not finish off these nine? When you start a task you complete it.


if those 9 people had been carrying guns, they could have protected themselves from the cops.
 
2012-08-25 04:58:51 PM
Man, if only some random gun-carrying citizen had been around as well and tried to intervene. Tsk tsk.
 
2012-08-25 05:01:08 PM
The best part, was the shooter didn't fire a single round at the police. They pumped something like 7 bullets in him, and if you're not squeamish, on the New York Daily News website is an article about the shooting, with a photo of Johnson's dead body on the street before it was covered up.

I get that a crazed gunman is coming toward them with a gun, but between the two of them, they couldn't take him out without winging 9 other people? That's farking asinine.

This makes me feel so much more comfortable with the idea of having random citizens trying to shoot gunmen too.
 
2012-08-25 05:04:12 PM
Isn't this a repeat?
 
2012-08-25 05:17:53 PM
They would've hurt less bystanders if they used a grenade.

I'm sure the NYPD will pay the hospital bills of all the people they shot. BAHAHAHAHA I couldn't even type that with a straight face.

And these, theoretically, were trained officers. And this was in the open.

Tell me again how anyone with firearms training could've taken out Sideshow Bob in a dark, gas-filled movie theater full of panicking people?
 
2012-08-25 05:56:35 PM
So is this no longer a mass-shooting... just a mass POLICE shooting.
 
2012-08-25 05:59:20 PM
This is pretty unusual for NYPD. Normally they expend all that ammunition, wound a couple of by-standers, and don't even hit their target. I'd say this is progress!
 
2012-08-25 05:59:46 PM
Is the Boston Mob training NY Officers how to shoot?
 
2012-08-25 05:59:51 PM
Serves the victims right for being near a gunman.

/not really

loved how they closed all the streets AFTER the shooting was over.

hey lou, let's fark up everyone's day ok? take that tape and close 4 streets.
 
2012-08-25 06:01:12 PM
well, at least now we don't need to discuss the political ramifications, consequences, advantages, or other subject matter related to gun control ---

looks at thread... whoops.
 
2012-08-25 06:01:15 PM
I want to know how he even got a gun into NY. Guns are illegal there! That means criminals CAN'T get them!
 
2012-08-25 06:01:16 PM
That's what they get for being trained by the Empire.
 
2012-08-25 06:01:27 PM
Thanks to this act of police incompetence, we'll see another wave of reactionary nitwits saying that no one should be able to carry a baby seeking firearm, EVER.

Thanks, NYPD!

"What do you mean you were trying to shoot the hostages? There were no 'hostages', you morons!"
 
2012-08-25 06:02:09 PM
Yeah, but 9 out of how many shots fired, Subby? I'll bet their batting average is still below .200
 
2012-08-25 06:02:22 PM
Wasted 6 bullets by my count
 
2012-08-25 06:02:39 PM
Cops are the f*cking worst shots in the world. That's what shooting 20 rounds a year in "training" will do for you.

"A disgruntled worker killed one man and wounded nine others"

Hmmm? Where does the Daily News get their information? Straight from the NYPD?

Honestly, I think I would trust random citizens with guns to hit what they are aiming at more than these guys. I have this strange feeling the two were just pretending they were playing COD:NYPD. 

/ooh, shiny new buttons, why yes I have ADD why do you ask?

It was purchased legally, two decades ago, when he lived in another state. He never registered it when he moved to NYC.

yeah I said the same thing when they suggested that. like a room full of panicked people with guns all firing at muzzle flashes while the rest are all running around like chickens with their heads cut off in the dark is somehow better than just one person.

also Sideshow Bob had bulletproof armor on and a gas mask along with a 100 round clip. chances are he'd hit you before you hit him.

Most cops aren't trainer shooters. Sure, they have maybe 20 or 40 hours on the range during academy, but most departments have only yearly or quarterly qualifications. And they're not exactly designed to fail officers...hard tests fail officers. And if they fail you have to pull them off the street. And if you don't, and they shoot someone, you just bought a new boat for the victims lawyer. In the years or so competing in idpa and ipsc, I've seen hundreds of cops show up. 95% are awful shots. And the kicker is that rather than come back the next week they never show up again. Pride is a biatch...they'd rather be lousy shots that don't have to see that they need to practice to become good shots. Honesty, if I had to bet who would be a better shooter (without having seen them shoot before) my money would always be on the random guy with a permit over the cop.

he was white so he didn't get stopped and frisked on the way to the bank
 
2012-08-25 06:06:01 PM
The lesson here is that cops should have fully auto assault rifles.

/Cripes, I know paper doesn't shoot back, but I think I could have managed to hit my target...

LordJiro: Tell me again how anyone with firearms training could've taken out Sideshow Bob in a dark, gas-filled movie theater full of panicking people?


Because most concealed weapon permit holders are significantly better shots then the police.
