Jackpot Justice Again

Sun Times; Channel 7. City to pay man hurt in Bulls celebration $1.75 million.

The up side? The injured party was asking for $9.5 million and the jury deadlocked. That is a tremendous happening. Perhaps juries are realizing that just because you get hurt doing something dumb doesn't entitle you to millions of dollars?

The down side? This quote:
  • The settlement, a fraction of the $9.5 million the plaintiff was seeking, "reflects the officer needed to fire the weapon in self-defense at the driver who was trying to run him over, while providing compensation to a young man who suffered a serious injury," said James Sotos, an attorney representing the police department and city in the case.
If that isn't the biggest waffle since IHOP tried for a Guinness record, we don't know what is. If the officer needed to fire his weapon in self defense, then the car and everyone in it was guilty of attempted murder. We charge people with it all the time in drive-bys. Now we're giving them $1.75 million for acting the fool and getting shot doing it?

After reading case reports and seeing many posts similar to the one above where the author incorrectly uses the word "no" instead of "know", it's simply pathetic. Spelling, grammer and punctuation have taken a back seat to ignorance. Try buying a dictionary and use it.

Why is the wife of MLK laying in state...Why does she have so much news coverage? Did she fight for our country? Did she die honorably fighting for the USA? As they say on the wesy side Nigger PLEASE! Its a joke that Ted Kennedy is up there giving a speech-when he killed a women! Jesse has children out of wedlock! Clinton gave a speech- He was impeached for having his dick sucked! Hillary scammed millions from a real estate scam.....You know why Black History Month is in Febuary...because its the shortest MONTH! Kinda like the craziest day in the black ghetto..... FATHERS DAY.
Lets start honoring our soldiers , teachers, policemen & fiemen..people who put they're lives on the line-so the rest of us can live in peace.

'Friendly fire' Finest dies



THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

An off-duty police officer shot by a patrolman in a case of mistaken identity has died, city officials said.
Officer Eric Hernandez died Wednesday at St. Barnabas Hospital in the Bronx, where he had been in critical condition since the incident on Jan. 28.

The on-duty patrolman shot Hernandez, 24, in each leg and the stomach. Police said the shooting stemmed from a dispute between Hernandez — who had been drinking and was in street clothes — and several other men at a fast-food restaurant.

After being surrounded and severely beaten, the dazed officer pulled a gun on a man in the restaurant’s parking lot before being shot by the patrolman, police said.

Capitol Commentary by Todd Vandermyde
and ISRA Position Paper on HB 2414
This week at the Capitol saw the battle for your rights heat up once again.

HB-2414, the semi-auto gun ban continues to take center stage. Last week amendment #6 was withdrawn by the sponsor. After weeks of talk in the press about Mayor Daley wanting to bring the Olympics to Chicago, they finally realized that their bill, if signed into law, would prohibit Olympic pistol competitors from holding their events in Illinois. So the Chicago Olympics would have to hold at least some of the shooting events in Indiana or Wisconsin.

It appears that amendment # 7 will be an attempt to “fix” this little problem with the bill. While some may say it is insignificant, it points to the fact that: 1) we are winning and 2) they continue to have problems, as they have from day one.

You will note that we are not putting out a great deal of specifics to the bill. Over the past year, the City has been grasping at straws to try and pass something. They, for once, have been listening to the criticism against their bill and changing it to take away those arguments. The Olympic amendment is the latest example of that. We are not in the business of educating them about their bills. If anything, the latest problem underscores that we have been right all along. Why else would they be changing language to “protect” Olympic shooters? Or changing the language on .50 cals to assure deer hunters that their guns will not be banned? The reason is simple, we are right. And we have been right all along.

I would suggest to everyone, that while it may feel good to post all kinds of technical info and point out every little flaw in the bill on blogs or web pages, the message now is simple – NO to a gun ban. No to Chicago style gun control. . . .

OK Tackleberry, this law does not apply to the police. LEO's are allowed to own whatever weapon they want short of a nuclear weapon. If you didn't fail the psych part of the Police test, you too could own the weapon of your choosing.

Call him tackleberry if you want. I do not agree with the mayor or his patsy Golden Rod on their Nazi style beliefs on guns. I think everyone should be calling their rep and telling them that you do not support that bill. Next thing you know we will be checking our firearms when we leave work, and the savage will still have theirs.

What compounds the tragedy of the death of NYPD PO Eric Hernandez is the fact that PO Alfredo Toro, 46th Pct., rolled up on the scene and reacted in the finest traditions of police officers everywhere. Officer Toro had no way of knowing that the squating stranger pointing a gun to the head of the thug in the parking lot was a fellow police officer.

May God bless both Officers Toro and Hernandez, their families and our NYPD brethren.

There, but for the grace of God, go I.

A tragedy to be sure. Also an important lesson to all (especially new) officers. We to not have neon signs above our heads that say police. If you are taking action with that weapon keep your eyes open and I.D. yourself ASAP to any responding officers and citizens alike. God Bless and stay safe.

Approximately three-thousand perished, however, seven-thousand survived by exiting via the stairwells-and no one was stampeded or crushed.

Re: Above 9:23:43 AM "post".

Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly has announced that in the finest traditions of the NYPD, there will be a full Inspector's Funeral for a slain police hero, P.O. Eric Hernandez, 52nd Pct. who sustained fatal wounds in a "friendly fire" tragedy in the Bronx on January 28th. Eric expired yesterday afternoon after a valiant fight for his life with hundreds of NYPD MOS donating blood.

Obviously, there are non-police instigators who are using your site for the sole purpose of inciting outrage in the law enforcement community with totally unfounded and incendiary comments like the one cited above.

First, I request that you summarily delete the comment (as well as mine). I do not condone censorship. However, when someone makes a totally unsupported, mean-spirited statement just to provoke: DELETE IT!

Finally, I ask that my fellow officers, both active and retired, simply ignore such blasphemy. To react otherwise will only give this anonymous, low-life piece of feces the reaction that he/she seeks.

Thank you.

May St. Michael the Archangel, the patron saint of police officers, escort Eric to the side of God. Rest in peace, brother Eric.
