NYPD Officer Gets Off From a Shooting That a Normal Citizen Would Do 15 Years For

Now, if you read the title of this article and think that this is going to be all “Black Lives Matter” and cops suck dribble, you will be sorely mistaken. Recently, the cause celebre that race baiters like Al Sharpton and Barack Obama have put forth, the criminal black man attacking non black police officers and then getting shot, doesn’t really seem like that big of an issue.  If they didn’t go around attacking cops then they would probably still be alive.

That of course is not the case all the time and when cops break the law and kill someone who is actually innocent they should be held accountable, just like everyone else.  Yet that seems not to be the case too often.

Like the case of John Crawford who went to a Walmart in Beavercreek, Ohio to purchase a bb gun for his son.  Ronald Richie, an anti gun bed wetter, called 911 and trumped up a story about a dangerous man with a gun in Walmart.  The police arrived on the scene and opened fire without a warning or announcing that they were there.  John Crawford died from his wounds and the police were let off the hook.  Ronald Richie though, may be facing the consequences for his actions.

Fairborn Municipal Court Judge Beth Root ruled that probable cause exists to prosecute the 911 caller in the John Crawford III police-involved fatal shooting after reviewing affidavits submitted by Greene County residents.

Root found probable cause that Ronald T. Ritchie, the lone person to call 911 from Beavercreek’s Walmart before shots were fired Aug. 5, 2014, could be prosecuted for making false alarms, a first-degree misdemeanor punishable by maximums of six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.

Is that all an innocent mans life is worth?  Six months and $1000?

But the case that really brought this up now is what happened to an NYPD police officer, Peter Liang, who fired blindly into a dark stairwell because he got scared when he heard a noise and killed resident Akai Gurley in 2014.

Liang and his partner were doing a foot patrol in a the stairwells Louis Pink Houses in Brooklyn.  Akai Gurley and his girlfriend, Melissa Butler, were coming back from getting her hair done for Thanksgiving from a friend of hers, when the two entered the stairwell 14 steps beneath the officers, Peter Liang pull his weapon and fired blindly in to the dark and killed Gurley.

While Butler frantically performed CPR, the officers just stood there and instead of trying to stop the bleeding just watched as Akai Gurley bled to death.

Now, think for one moment…if a regular citizen was walking down the stairwell of an apartment building, got spooked and just shot blindly and killed an innocent person…IN NEW YORK CITY of all places?!?!?!

Mayor De Blasio, Governor Cuomo, Billionaire Bloomberg would be DEMANDING more gun control as well as the shooter to be burned at the stake…that might not even be a metaphor with those mouth drooling loons.

Apart from the push for more gun control, I would have to say that the action itself was so reckless and dangerous (obviously) that the perpetrator would have to face the music.  I would say that is true even MORESO that it is a police officer.

While any other law abiding citizen would be doing hard time right now in Attica or Sing Sing, the worst that happened to Peter Liang is that he got fired, after a jury convicted him of manslaughter over the winter.  He was facing 15 years in prison.


Yet, in swoops an activist judge who hijacks the justice system and yesterday REDUCES the charges against Peter Liang to criminally negligent homicide.  Ok, still something right.  Do a little less time but still, the charge carries a four year prison sentence.

But, on top of reducing the sentence, Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Danny Chun sentenced Liang to five years’ probation and 800 hours of community service.

What honest citizen who is NOT a cop is going to get that sweet heart deal?  And the rationale behind it is suspect.

Chun saying:

“Given the defendant’s background and how remorseful he is, it would not be necessary to incarcerate the defendant to have a just sentence in this case.”

No kidding he’s remorseful but there are plenty of good people in New York that are getting raked over the coals and doing ACTUAL jail time for unknowingly failing to adhere to the states draconian gun laws.

I guess in New York, the badge is really a shield that can protect you from a lot of things…like accountability and the murder of others.

Those are some great New York Values there.

And if you think that I may be exaggerating the case about how easily this guy got off compared to a law abiding citizen, let me direct you to the case of a Maryland homeowner and US veteran who shot and killed a man who broke in the front door of his house, seeking out the vets wife.

A man’s home is his castle, except in Maryland. Man shoots intruder at 2am, gets charged with murder

Yeah.  Double standards.  As they say, all people are equal…but some are more equal than others.

And if you want to tell me that being a police officer is tough, I won’t argue the point.  But no one MADE Peter Liang be a cop.  The badge isn’t a license to kill, to shoot indiscriminately into the dark because you are scared of what goes bump in the night.
