Eye witness says while the kid was gunned down cops continued to fire.

21 shots and the NYPD still didn't get the job done on Angel Alvarez, regrettably the man that Angel had been arguing with did die. At this time though it is unclear whether or not Luis Tolentino died of a gunshot wound allegedly inflicted by Angel or if he died from gunshot wounds inflicted by the police. One thing is clear however and that is handcuffing the dying Tolentino was hardly necessary.

There is possible cell phone footage of the incident, which will hopefully answer more questions. As of now it seems like the NYPD and government officials are scrambling for answers.

Noticed the cops vest was struck by a bullet, but they say a cop was shot by a fellow officer also.. This is straight utter Bull s#it! Cops in NYC are trained to kill when ever the discharge their firearm. The policy is " The cops word, is always better then a dead mans" When you have racist who hate the people in the neighborhoods they patrol what else do you think is gonna happen? No matter what race you are, if you become a cop in NYC you are "Blue" and they are extremely bias and racist towards minorities in low income neighborhoods. I see it all the time, unfortunately.

A certain NWA song comes to mind...

I dunno what its like in America (probably worse) but in Australia, the kind of people the police hire can be divided into 2 categories (this is fact)

1 Thirds: Community orientated, kind, personable, tolerant etc.
2 Thirds: Aggressive alpha-male tendencies, authoritative, callous etc.

In America, as far as the cops are concerned, anyone that they speak to is a threat. They will shoot you, Never forget that. A cop will kill you and get a pat on his back from his buddys. They are worse than an organised crime syndicate, atleast crime familys have some sense of honer.
the are beholden to no one but the state and the corporations who they serve.
no one is lower than a cop, not even a crack dealer, or a rapest. for at least crack dealers and rapests can be brought to justice.

This just reflects a militant trend in policing that is, IMO a combination of the fact that criminals are increasingly violent and unpredictable and, also, that most police officers these days are freshly returned Iraq/Afghanistan vets who are still deeply indoctrinated in military thinking.

All in all the guy who was shot should probably thank his maker because 40 tries with 20+ hits and a survival means that somebody somewhere decided his number just wasn't up!

*Edit* Undoing horrendous grammatical errors and such.

Funny you say 40, I lived in the BX when Amadou Dialo was killed by 41 bullets by the N.Y.P.D while getting his wallet. You would think that this would happen less often, but it doesn't.

I get that NYC is dangerous, but the fear of the police there, and the lack of people calling them due to this fear, you would think they would never have anything to do, but they always find time to get some target practice.

Living in NYC most of my life, Ive seen cops do things that I am sure would require me to get shot at 40 times.

Man am I glad I'm not there anymore
