If you’ve seen my LJ you may have read this already because I posted it there first –
There was this cop who got shot by some kid who bought 3 bags of weed. The kid went off and killed himself and everybody-- and I mean everybody was wondering why the hell he went so crazy over 3 bags of weed. The cops were so suspicious they were looking for some other thing he might have done that he was running from (nothing, apparently. He’d just graduated high school and was going to a local college. He was a “good kid”).
The shooting happened the beginning of this week. The shot cop is OK. This story grew another pair of legs when a tape of the shooting surfaced. Seems the shot cop’s partner ran away in fear when the kid took out his gun, and hid behind a parked car while his partner got shot.
The tape is, I hate to say this, comical. The guy should have a bubble over his head saying “Somebody call the cops!”
His sister was on the news this morning-- at her front door, holding her baby-- saying “Who knows what was going through his mind? How would you react in the same situation?” This brings two things to mind:
1)Why the hell was Fox news at that woman’s door at 6:15 in the morning asking her inane questions? What did you think she was going to say? That her brother is a big pussy and we all should laugh at him?
2)Me and his sister are probably the only two people in all of NY who feel sorry for the punk.
