    I hate Monday morning quarter-backing events like this. So I will wait and see what the investigation reveals. On the surface, and according to the article it appears the gun shots all came from the police officer. The first barrage clearly in confusion and in the height of the moment someone pulls a gun on you and imho..justified. But the pause and the subsequent shots afterwards are a concern to me. This leads me to believe the officer might have been acting in a revenge state of mind because this ***** just tried to kill him. I’m fine with that but not fine with him taking shots on a street with citizens on it if that is when that poor guy got hit. Here in NY, our self-defense laws are very clear and do not allow discharging a firearm at a fleeing attacker under any circumstance. If the officer was just a armed citizen, then the initial attack would have been justified but the subsequent shots after would not have been. This is my problem when it comes to police officer standards for self-defense and the average citizens. We as citizens CCW holders are held to a far higher standard. That has to change.

    HAHA…..What so wrong with it? Some of you on here act as if you’re not being tracked. Fact is, illegal aliens enjoy the freedom we think we have. They have anonimity and no one in government cares to know who they are. You on the other hand are track via, email, cell phone, web accounts, voter registration, bank accounts, credit cards, discount cards, ez-pass, web browsing……ect…..and of course comments posted to this site. haha

    All this talk about 2016 is ridiculous. It is over for the GOP. By the time 2016 comes around over 51% of voters in swing states will be on some form of government assistance and NOT likely to vote against those handouts. The big push is on now, Unions will control elections out right. If you live in a swing state and stayed home because Romney wasn’t your man, then you contributed to Mr. O’s victory and the downfall of the country. We need to move on and prepare for the new United States of America and try not to make anymore mistakes. 2014 is the goal. Maintain the House and get back the senate. It is our only chance before history repeats.

    I used to respect this guy. I’m sure others did as well. Using race to hide incompetence is deplorable. Good bye Mr. Powell.

    @ WEST COAST PATRIOT- You are right. They’re not building a conventional nuke missile They are building suit case/backpack nukes. Iran could never openly fight the USA, but it can through proxy. Much like they have been doing in Iraq and the Stan with their sophisticated IED’s. Iran has more American service members blood on their hand than you or this administration will care to admit. Wake the &^%$ up you simpleton!

    @Weiners Wiener- The police are at fault? The story said one of the officers thought he might be intoxicated. No crime committed as the person was not driving. Took the person off the highway to a Taco bell because of a language barrier and got no where. So they released him. Would you rather they detain him on suspicion of a possible future crime? Say possible public drunkenness, DWI, rape robbery…you know things people do why possible under the influence of something? You actually would advocate detention and substance testing of anyone buying alcohol, gun, ammo, fuel…ect, because they might break the law in the future using such purchases? I don’t believe in the nanny state, but you apparently do. Blame he is solely with the man. He was an adult and had a right to live his life anyway he wanted too. As for his immigration status, I agree with everyone else. That man would be alive today if he was in the process of deportation. But Mr. O thinks differently.

    The statement of “to protect and serve” is misleading. It means to protect and serve the interests of the the local government, and nothing more. I’m sure you can guess what those interests are. I’m not making it up. You cannot sue your local PD for failure to prevent or stop a crime.

    @forthepeople- Unfortunately that will only allow Barry to stay in power until the people forget about elections and then a dictator is born. The enemy of my enemy is my friend. Don’t believe the polls. The media is on a full court press to discourage voter turn out with the Independents and Republicans voting blocks. Those of you voting any other way in this election except Republican are only giving Barry a second term. Don’t bash me because I know it is unfortunate.

    Tough situation. Is it 100 percent preventable? No. I’m not trying to Monday-morning quarterback this but, clearly the NYPD needs to review its training program. The officer situational awareness leaves something to be desired. Called to the scene of a possible armed robbery in progress he approaches and proceeds to hang around the front door. Either commit to entry or pull back and wait for back up. Standing there looking around in the open makes you a target. Next, when exactly did his finger go to the trigger? Right. It was ALWAYS there. This lack of basic weapons discipline cause more accidental discharges than police departments care to acknowledge. Like I said it is not 100 percent preventable but the NYPD weapons training for the basic foot patrol officers need serious updating and standard raised. Failure to pass should be a step towards another line of work. Just my 2 cents.

    When the military is used as a political tool, morality trumps any brotherhood code. Maybe, just maybe those SEAL’s instead of reciting the oath, sit down and understand the oath. The oath is to the AMERICAN PEOPLE and not the government.

    He should have just told them he was a democrat voter and that he shouldn’t have to produce ID. Oh, I see secured access to the convention is far more important than secured voting. Gotcha! silly me.

    Jesus! Talk about polishing the silverware while the house is burning. This administration can’t be serious. Can it? Or, maybe they’re right to have utter contempt for the American people. A good portion of us are useful idiots.

    Anything short of a take back of the congress and complete landslide presidential election is failure. It’s that critical folks.

    Calm down boot! There was NO SHOOT OUT! This isn’t Iraq or the Stan. As a police officer, you have to have situation awareness when US citizens would possible be collateral damage. The police can’t have this “us vs them” mentality and damn the innocents because I’m going home to my family nonsense. Read the article. If it is correct, then officers fired with no immediate threat. Meaning the suspect didn’t fire or point his weapon. If it is proper NYPD procedure to use deadly force in that situation, because a weapon is present, then a shot from behind cover was possible and should have been the done. You may get away with spraying rounds like that some where else, but not here. the fact that you have no concern about the citizens who were shot is alarming. We won’t know exactly where they were standing in relation to the perp when they were hit, but that apparently is no interest to you. If you have a concealed carry permit, please keep your weapon holster. The public will be safer.

    I don’t have much of a problem with this guy being upset about the book but lets face it, SEAL’s are always looking for the limelight. My problem is when he says that politics shouldn’t play any part while in the teams. He is kidding me? Politics will soon play a large part in it when a team will be tasked with an op on US soil and against US citizens. DON’T FORGET YOUR OATH! You can disobey an unlawful order. WAKE UP! Oh, and if he didn’t write someone else would have.

    No one should be puzzled at why NYPD officers fired so many times. I forget what year it was but there was a armed robbery in mid town Manhattan and responding officers chased the suspect down the street firing at the the suspect as the chase continued. The suspect entered a parking garage and the police kept firing. Later they found a dead body next to a Mercedes and first reports were that is was the robbery suspect. Well, not quite. It happened to be an innocent bystander but police claimed he was shot by the suspect. Well, not really. It was later learned that several of the 210 rounds fired by the NYPD were recovered from that body. IMHO, 95 percent of police officers have no business carrying a firearm let alone using it. I am certain that any CCW holder, acting in the defense of himself and the public’s safety, would be charged with at least 9 counts of reckless endangerment. NYPD? All in a days work. search for videos of police and crossfire. It will make you cringe! They say you can’t be trusted with a firearm. lol

    I’m not going to pass judgement on these officers until a full investigation or lack of one, is done. I will however address police officers in general. Like others who have posted, I also witnessed officers behaving badly. In one instance, two Officers, straight out of the academy were at my friends (NYPD officer) house party. Granted they were drunk, but both asked if I have ever shot a ni**er. Before I could tell them I was not on the job, one looked at the other and said ” I can’t wait to shoot my first ni**er”. I walk away.wondering what really motivated them to become public servants. A title most police officers really don’t recognize, but use as an excuse for their behavioral indiscretions when questioned and for conjure up blind public support. This goes up to the highest levels of any police command. I can deal with the rogue police officer. Every command has a few, but what I and the public should not tolerate is the deliberate, in your face, lack of participation from other officers to root out these bad apples that plague every department. The Blue Line of Silence as it is called is complete BS. Every officer knows who in their department is acting outside the scope of their authority ( the bad apples) but uses the excuse of this blue line BS to some how come to terms with it. It is disgraceful. You are an complicit to any crime that office will do, or has done. Clean up the ranks and the public will back you. Maybe I’m wrong, or just held to a different st

    I think it’s called square breathing and it used to help control panic attacks and individuals that experience them. Nothing new here.

    I’m sure they would like a weapon that could simple replace a specops operator. I believe it is in the works now and it developmental name is “the wish”. Imagine a weapon that can be dialed up from 1 (a slap) to 10 (nuclear destruction) …yep that a wish alright. lol
