DUMBASS...More ammo for the anti gunners.

Two unrelated notations:

1. Is his base pay relevant?

2. Those are not a mans eyebrows.

Maybe not yet.

This is what someone (granted, probably not a politician who would fall into the "they" category, but still.....) said in the comments section of that article:


Do the Eastchester police really need Glock 9mm semi-automatic weapons?









ETA: As far as if this situation is "ammo for the anti's".........of course it can be. Anything can be. Anti's don't run on logic.

I can see the argument now from an anti, after reading the article.........."Trained police officers are barely capable of handling a semi-automatic pistol......and you think regular Joe Schmo's should be able to own them?!?!?!? OMG!!!".

1. Yes. He is a civil servant.
2. When you make that much you can afford to be be metrosexual.

One other thought. It sucks he was slapped with a manslaughter charge, but that is how it is in NYS. The lawyer appears to be seeking some sort of favoritism for him due to his job as a cop. Anyone "playing" around with a firearm in this state who shoots and kills someone is going to get charged.

Years ago there was a WC legislator who wanted to enact a local law in WC prohibiting off duty/retired LE from carrying concealed handguns. There are a number of NYS legislators that would support legislation prohibiting LE from carrying off-duty. Shoot to wound Patterson sponsored legislation as a state senator to decriminalize resisting arrest. He also supported legislation that would send LEOs to state prison for not shooting to wound when DPF was justified.

Believe me when I say this state would be very happy with British style policing. When you look at the labyrinthian laws for justification you realize the basic answer to LE on DPF is do it and prepare to hang on your own.

That makes it a matter of public record, it doesn't make it relevant to the story or what happened.

Just look at Canada.

Why does that suck?

Because it may have been purely accidental. We don't know the circumstances.

The fact that it was an accident means he doesn't get charged with murder. Accident or not, Pileggi shot an innocent civilian resulting in that person's death. That is a crime in NYS, as well as many others.

Which is exactly what I said in my original post.

He pointed a loaded firearm at someone's face and shot him?

Which charge would have been more appropriate?
