Another link for those who don't want to register with the NY Times:

Black cop killed by white officer: Horror in East Harlem as off-duty rookie is shot pursuing suspect

Terrible tragedy the family of the slain officer and for the city. It sounds like a tragic accident that could have been avoided. However, I suspect that those with agendas and ulterior motives will try to turn this into something else.

Notice how the news media immediately plays the race card. They couldn't just mention that one cop shot another, they had to play the race angle. Sad. I'm glad these newspaper companies are going out of business.

You mean race may not have been a factor?

In my opinion no. The undercover cop was running with a gun drawn and did not drop his weapon on command. Providing that's the way it went down, then no I do not believe that race was a factor. What bothers me is how the news splashes race across the headlines in an attempt to sell papers. It's irresponsible journalism.

You're missing the point. Do you truly believe that ALL people, running with a weapon, are shot 6 times? And notice how only 1 cop fired his weapon. If all of the officers (3 of them) were threatened, then why didn't all of them fire their weapons?

Hmm..

One playing the race card. Want to bet if it was the black man that shot a white cop, race would have never been metioned?

ORIGINAL POSTER...YOU'RE LATE!!

There is already a thread about this. LOL @ someone saying that News paper companies are going out of business. They will find some way to spread their vicious lies and propaganda.

PS: We ALL know that race does play a part in this. This ALWAYS happens to so called Blacks and Hispanics.
