NYPD pulls you over - you know the drill.

    That was a poorly written article. What has happened to journalism?

    "Note to self",

    When being pulled over at five a.m. while speeding, don't reach for my drill, no matter how appropriate it may seem.

    I'm not so sure that should be considered a good shoot. Many folks get nervous when stopped by a cop.
     
  7. Alcohol only increases stupidity. That cop asleep in the back seat needs to go.

  9. Maybe some people do, but clutching a drill next to you like a security blanket won't ease the nervousness any. Trust me on this one. :supergrin:

    Anyway, of all the things that end up under a car seat, how'd a drill get there? Cord or cordless? Crazy. Crazy. Crazy. And tragic.

    A throw down drill?

    I think NYC might be paying out some money on this one.

    Dude runs, refuses to stop, only does so once blocked by another unit, instead of putting hands up reaches for an object under his seat.(last part depending on who you believe) Certainly not the actions of a normal person.

    I'm seriously doubting he went for the DeWalt after being pulled over by an unmarked car.

    Also, worth noting is that a lot of the unmarked cars are foreign made beaters that look nothing like a police car. My father was Queens Narcotics for almost his whole career and drove a Suzuki Grand Vitara for a good part of it.
     
  14. Did you notice it was ESU? They don't do stakeouts they use unmarked to roll up to a house to do a warrant. I don't doubt he reached down for something one bit, hell the drill could have hit his leg when he stopped, we don't know.

    There's something seriously "wrong" with that entire story.
    There's something we're not being told, or somebody's lying?

    Yeah, noticed that of course. I think that they were probably out of their lane doing a "reckless driving" traffic stop and that's part of what lead to the bad EOF.

    After that it's time to get the witness out of the car and off the scene and get creative. Most likely the drill was in the trunk or not in the car at all.

    Unless they can show a jury that the driver was seriously stoned, based upon the article, NYC will be paying.

    Who is going to believe a military reservist is going to pull an electric drill from under his seat when being stopped by a emergency services van and a police officer with a gun.

    What was the driver thinking he would accomplish with the drill? Pull it out and say to the police "Stop or I'll drill you!" The police then have a good laugh and let him go.

    TBO Why so serious? CLM

    How about Eric Scott, the "squared away West Point military Vet" who was a pain med abuser shot dead at Costco after pulling his concealed carry permit pistol on the cops?

    Yes, how about Eric Scott? Tell us how the facts in that case relate to what we currently know about the New York case.

    It's similar in that police gunned down a (in this case, former) member of the military and then went on the record with fraudulent testimony.

    http://www.lvrj.com/news/slaying-of-army-veteran-shocks-friends-98223884.html

    The witnesses saw no gun in hand, no gun on the ground. Police destroyed the tapes and said he came out brandishing a gun to cover up a bad EOF.

    Later, the pain meds thing was thrown on, because... well... it's something. If it wasn't that it would have been "Suspected Child Pornography" for a GGW or Raven Riley video on his home computer. It is critical to assassinate the victims character in public to chase away any potential supporters seeking justice.

    Also the "Coroner's Inquest" proceedings in Las Vegas are a clown court- they have never ever come across a bad shoot since their inception in 1976 after reviewing hundreds of cases.
