Yea, that is what pissed me off so much. A simple mistake that easily could have been avoided. And the man who was shot had a daughter. Who is going to look after her like a daddy would?
Tragedies are much much different than stupid mistakes. This was a stupid mistake and not all the blame should fall on the rookie cop. IMHO.
A rookie cop fatally shot an unarmed man inside a Brooklyn housing project late Thursday, authorities said.
The cop and his partner, also a rookie, were descending from a dimly lit eighth-floor stairwell at the Pink Houses at 2724 Linden Blvd. about 11:15 p.m. The 28-year-old victim, Akai Gurley, entered from the seventh floor with his girlfriend, startling the cops, police sources said.
A police source told the Daily News that Liang was holding his Glock 9 mm. pistol in one hand and a flashlight in the other. Liang, who joined the force in July 2013, had just entered the pitch-black stairwell on the eighth floor when his gun accidentally discharged, police said.www.nydailynews.com...
