All nine of the bystanders who were injured in yesterday’s Empire State Building shooting incident were shot by police, the media is now reporting. NYPD officers “fired randomly” into the street, striking nine bystanders in the legs, buttocks and elbow. The gunman, Jeffrey Johnson, had only one intended target: his former boss. Johnson never fired at police, it turns out, despite Mayor Bloomberg’s initial description claiming he did.
The Guardian is now reporting:
Questions have been raised over the New York police department’s handling of a shooting near the Empire State Building after armed officers injured nine passers-by as they pursued a gunman who had just shot dead his former boss.
One of those injured by police told the Guardian that officers appeared to fire “randomly” as they confronted Jeffrey Johnson, 58, minutes after a workplace dispute escalated into a chaotic shootout in one of the busiest parts of Manhattan.
Reports suggest that while Johnson drew his gun when he was confronted by officers, he did not fire; all those injured appear to have been shot by police.
In other words, this was no random attack. This wasn’t a wild, rampaging shooter. The real damage to the public was done by the NYPD, whose officers apparently can’t hit the broad side of a barn at fifty yards.
