Lesson learned. If the NYPD is shooting at you, just stand still. If you run, you might run into a stray bullet.

Guess they had their eyes closed. Time for more target practice.

Why didn't they try de-escalation techniques such as deep breathing with eyes closed, maybe offer him a breath mint and light conversation?

Seriously, I hope the NYPD uses this incident to evaluate their firearms training. Unforunately I don't think this will happen, sensitivity and diversity training is probably viewed as more important.

No bystanders were injured so we won't know where the 83 bullets went. They are probably stuck in building facades and passing automobiles. I imagine washing your car and finding a bullet hole or three!

They can use this incident "against" gun control advocates by saying even in the hands of trained professionals, guns aren't dangerous. 84 rounds fired...good grief.

How much will this cost taxpayers in the end. Now we have to try him and probably put him on home monitored probation for year. Doubt he will see any jail time they will plea bargain down. Then he will sue for excessive use of force, he was scared as hell with all of the bullets flying by. The city will settle for 6 or 7 figures, who wants to go to court and explain shooting 84 times at a poor non threatening man running away. He will get 10% of the settlement. Legal fees for the rest.

He will blow the money and Then in 6 months we will repeat the cycle.

Wasn't it a while back two New York cops wounded 9 innocent bystanders when they were shooting at some perp.? Think they need a lot of range time and hot drills.

Was that the incident where cops surrounded 2 guys in their car and opened fire on them with over 300 rounds fired?

Wonder where their range instructors are.
Probably there helping shoot at the guy. They were obviously " test firing" their weapons. ;)

So does this mean the NYPD is the equivalent of " Boy scouts for men",,, kinda like the U.N. Just collect you pay and stay outta trouble. :D

What an absolute embarrassment.
