An unarmed, emotionally disturbed man shot at by the police as he was lurching around traffic near Times Square in September has been charged with assault, on the theory that he was responsible for bullet wounds suffered by two bystanders, according to an indictment unsealed in State Supreme Court in Manhattan on Wednesday.
When he reached into his pants pocket, two officers, who, the police said, thought he was pulling a gun, opened fire, missing Mr. Broadnax, but hitting two nearby women.
Finally, a police sergeant knocked Mr. Broadnax down with a Taser.
The original charges are enough. The man was clearly not in the correct state of mind but this didn't warrant opening fire into a crowd of people. The two gun-blazing cops should be charged for reckless endangerment or even assault.

I want at-least Assault with a deadly combined with an Attempted Murder charge.
You know what a Citizen would get charged with who did the same in self defense and hit an innocent.
Kinda like this.
She told police it was "a f--ked up accident" because she thought it was Lane, 39, who was "banging and kicking on her front door," according to the police report obtained by CNN.
"As she opened the door, a shot was fired, hitting her daughter in the upper chest," the police release said. "The 4 month-old was not injured. Ruby Bing died at the scene."
She told police that she "intended to use the firearm to kill her boyfriend, because he stated he was going to come back and kill her," the police report said.
No charges will stick on them.
