First Rule in not getting shot by the cops: Don’t try to run over an undercover police officer:

Tension is high in the city after the shooting of three unarmed men in Jamaica over the weekend. Now hearts should go out to the individuals shot, especially for Sean Bell who was set to be married the next day and died in the incident.

Unfortunately this whole event could have been avoided not only by the scared police officers that cracked under the tension but also Bell and his friends.

First rule, when someone is standing in front of your car, whether you think they’re a cop or not, don’t try to run them over.

Second rule, after you try to run them over a first time, don’t backup and try to run them over again.

I agree that questions need to be answered and things changed. For instance I would like to ask Mayor Bloomberg why do we still have bars and strip clubs still open at 4:00AM? Mayor Bloomberg should worry more about how much alcohol has been consumed until 4:00AM by people, which eventually leads to these incidents, instead of how much fat is in my KFC.

In conclusion, attempts will be made to turn this incident into a case of police brutality. The reality is that this is just a case of human beings who happen to be cops because the NYPD called before the sanitation and fire departments, that under the stress and fear of getting run down unleashed their guns like they were in the middle of Baghdad.
