Good work, men!
Quick! Get ready for The Gov to ignore the local LEOs and give all the credit to the Super Troopers!
…or Obama, more likely.
The shooter cop is in dire need of additional target practice! How did he miss the kill shot? Why should NY taxpayers pay any more to keep this dirtball alive?
Who says he was trying to kill him?
Yep, more range time is definitely required.
At least Sweat is going to be useful in prison-hottie Joyce Mitchell’s trial, for, among other things, conspiracy to commit murder of her husband.
This affair would hace been a lot more interesting if the cops had been chasing two black guys. New s coverage wise manhunt wise and if cops would have had nerve to shoot either one
