Totally innocent' unarmed 28yo 'accidentally' shot dead by NYPD police


A rookie NYPD officer “accidentally” shot and killed an unarmed African-American man in a staircase in a New York apartment block. It happened as Ferguson is tensely waiting for a grand jury decision on a police officer who shot Michael Brown.

Akai Gurley, 28, and his girlfriend Melissa Butler were entering a staircase on the seventh floor in Pink House project in Brooklyn late Thursday evening when two policemen came down from the eighth floor. Peter Liang and his partner, Shaun Landau were doing a top-to-bottom patrol. Liang, a rookie on probationary assignment, fired a shot in Gurley’s chest without a warning,

Butler said. “They didn’t present themselves or nothing and shot him,” Butler told DNAinfo New York. “As soon as he came in, the police opened the [door to the] eighth-floor staircase. They didn’t identify themselves at all. They just shot.”

Ok, soooooo last night on an upstiars downstairs kind'a encounter one cop pulls a gun and shoots a man while his girlfriend (and 2 year old?) look on.
But - it was an accident. Oh ok...

Well, whad-a-ya think about that.

And the timing can't be anything but - coincidental - considering the release of the Ferguson decision.

Something really stinks here...but at least have this admission.

"What happened last night was a very unfortunate tragedy,'' police commissioner Bill Bratton said in a statement. "The deceased is totally innocent. He just happened to be in the hallway. He was not engaged in any criminal activity.''


I hope that's enough.
