NYC cops shoot everything but their target

JFC guys...go to the range more often. :ohno:

NYPD officers fired three shots on a crowded Manhattan street near Times Square on Saturday night, missing the man they believed had a weapon but striking two bystanders, police said.


Police said officers saw a man on foot weaving erratically through traffic and sometimes blocking vehicles. After approaching him, police said, the man reached into his pocket as if grabbing a weapon, and two officers fired a total of three shots. They missed him but struck a 54-year-old woman in the right knee and a grazed a 35-year-old woman in the buttocks, police said.

First problem: Why would you do that to yourself ASUG6.93?

Second: NYC cops have been training with the LAPD for years. Good to see all of those firearms classes have finally paid off. :roll:

We didn't know about the shooting until the next day. I counted 14 police vehicles at our hotel intersection alone the next morning and they were loading up in vans for some reason.

No...the NYC visit. Glad you had fun, but I will look down on you from now on due to your poor decision. ;)

Great place to visit, but wouldn't want to live there. They have a magical way of separating you from your money there. :ohno:
