NYC Cop shot

Reuters) - A man wanted for illegal gun possession was charged on Sunday with the attempted murder of a New York City plainclothes police officer who was shot in the head while pursuing the suspect in his unmarked car, authorities said.

Officer Brian Moore, 25, remained in critical but stable condition at Jamaica Hospital, a spokeswoman for the New York Police Department said.

Police identified the suspect in the shooting in the New York borough of Queens on Saturday as Demetrius Blackwell, 35. He was arrested soon after the shooting and on Sunday he was charged with attempted murder, assault and two counts of criminal possession of a weapon, the NYPD said.

6. Come on now. You gotta give us more time than 15 minutes.

Here's a primer for DU.

A lot of people are one issue posters.
A lot of people will judge the "reasons" why a person posted something, especially if they have sparred with someone over the same issue.
A lot of people read without ever responding or reccing. Your views count all of that.
Give it some time. You got recs and responses. That doesn't happen all the time.

But the focus should be on Officer More, not on how many people end up reccing your post.

8. And just to add some more tips

Posts on Friday nights, Saturdays and Sundays get seen a lot less, and thus fewer recs.

Saturdays don't see much action all day, Sundays typically won't see as much action until later in the evening, and Fridays stop seeing action around 4-5pm.

I'm sick and tired of police officers being treated as Gods while most people who are shot and killed barely make it in the police press release.

... about people gunned down because of gun violence, especially those gunned down by cops.

So a cop who's only "guilt" was being on the job doesn't deserve any compassion, because voicing that compassion equates to his "being treated as a god".

Got it.

. . . Rather, Riverside is refusing to buy into the dishonest agenda of the OP, which was to passive-aggressively suggest that folks here have some particular animus against police officers because we articulate valid criticism of police brutality and excessive use of force.

I have sympathy for all victims of gun violence I just choose not to give police officers high reverence over every other victim of gun violence. Are we not all created equal?

I've had it up to here with people who believe that police officers are god-like and lives are worth more than the life of an everyday citizen. You will almost never threads dedicated to folks like Francisco Lopez, of Ogden UT who was cowardly gunned down in the streets early Sunday morning.

Why is his life worth less?

74. Yes, there are people gravely injured every day.

We don't know about all of them; not all of them make the news.

In this instance, we DO know about this particular person and what happened to him.

I don't pray. But I see nothing wrong with asking those who do pray to say a prayer for someone who is suffering, and for their families who are dealing with a horrible situation.

If holding a positive thought in your mind for a stranger is too much to ask of you, you can simply not do so. I don't see why you feel a need to disparage those who do.

67. Re: "This dude's just talking to hisself. "

 



Part of this thread reminds me of FR during the height of the Iraq war when one would be labeled everything from a terrorist sympathizer to a "freedom hater" for daring to question the war and Dubya. I am just sick of the mindless uniform worship and phony patriotism that certain elements of our society engages in.

I do not think that a police officer getting shot deserves greater "prayers" and "good wishes" than what a average citizen gets, gun violence regardless of occupation is tragic and affects us all whether it be an officer performing his or her duties or a mom or dad driving home after a long day of work.

I just wish that victims of gun violence were treated as equals and got the same attention from law enforcement, media, etc but sadly if you're John Q. Public and you get shot while sitting in your car you're lucky to get a press release written about you. No one outside of your family is going to remember you and no one is going to create posts calling for "support" and "prayers".

Just the way it is.

Folks certainly love having cops around when they need them.

I bet we could save a bunch of tax money by ridding ourselves of law enforcement officers. But even the complainers wouldn't go that far. I bet they would not step up to wear a badge either.

24. People also love fire when it warms them, but not so much when it destroys their house.

I bet we could save a huge amount of tax money by de-militarizing the police and stop conducting the "war on drugs". Which was never about controlling illegal drug use. If it had been, some progress would have been made in the last 40+ years.
It was/is about selling equipment to different agencies in the government and as a control mechanism on minorities.

PUBLIC SERVANTS are open to criticism by the public. Public servants can be video taped while in the process of doing public service. Discrepancies in service, morality, and individual treatment should be public knowledge. Those who do these things are acting for the public good.

But something tells me your thread is less about your 'concern' for this particular cop than it is about using his injury as an opportunity to push back against some of the thoroughly justified and valid criticism of excessive police violence many have articulated here. So, I call bullshit on your call for 'support' of this injured officer!

55. Nah, not gonna do it.

 

Cops don't show remorse when they murder in cold blood, why should we give a shit when one of them goes down?

72. Why this individual in particular? It appears to deny sympathy for the average 289 other Americans

 

Why this individual in particular? It appears to deny both support and sympathy for the average 289 other Americans who are killed by gun violence every day. Is there something specific which stands out in the scenario you've presented to us?

Or are we illustrating condolences to someone simply picked at random?

82. Why ae you so antagonistic when talking about police officers?

Officer Moore died. His family lost a father, husband, son. Do you care about them at all, or do you hate the police so much that you don't care?

83. I don't think they deserve this bullshit outpouring of sympathy.

 

He'll get a rediculous funeral & this huge out pouring of support for what? Sorry the guy died, now everyone should move on.

85. Would you say that to Freddie Gray's family?

Or Michael Brown's? Or Tamir Rice's family?

I didn't see, nor would I expect, anyone on this site to have said "Sorry the guy died, now everyone should move on" for any of those victims.

87. Well let's compare shall we?

 

Are their murderers now sitting in jail without bond, were they labeled as thugs? Was Freddie Grey, Michael Brown, or Tamir Rice given big elaborate funerals & labeled as hero's,? No, they were called thugs, criminals & dragged through the mud. Hell, many of the Freddie Grey threads on here didn't even get noticed.

The police in this country should get the treatment as everyone else not a big hoopla when they die, this is bullshit.

90. So now all cops are bad because some are?

That sounds eerily like the racists that say all young black men are criminals because some are.

Same bigotry, just pointed at a different group; hypocrisy at its finest.

Well, because he was killed in the line of duty and leaves behind a family.
