Guest Guest Posted November 29, 2006 Report Share Posted November 29, 2006 The NYC Officer who fired 31 shots and even had to reload should be indicted and be charged with manslaughter. This case stinks and no coverup can cover it up. The City of New York will have to pay out millions of dollars to pay this off. Why does an Officer do this? Poor training and poor supervision. For firearms training to be realistic it must be scenario based. the HPD doesn't have scenario based firearms training and a police shooting like one that happened in the past could lead to a multi-million dollar settlement. So what should the HPD do? First, if I was the training officer and the Chief, who will be on a lawsuit, I would insist that FATS training be part of the regular firearms training. This will insure that the Officers are properly trained and won't panic. Many Officer involved shootings can be avoided and this will save the Town huge amounts of money. It will also save the Officer from stress and grief that comes from having to take a life. So, to the above mentioned Officers take my advice. We had to pay off for a shooting several years ago when a judgement was made that to allow the case to go to trial would be disasterous.
