What's going on in the Big Apple? There must be something foul in the water. Just this week alone, there have been three, count 'em three bizarre, outrageous and unprovoked cop shootings. Oh, and all of these cops were drunk. So maybe if there is something with the water, it's the water-back chaser for the scotch and sodas.
It's not just pedestrians who are victims of these drunken outbreaks. One inebriated cop even winged his partner.
Here's a short rundown, courtesy of Gawker:
NYPD officers apparently can't stop getting drunk and shooting people: Just before midnight Tuesday, Officer Brendan Cronin allegedly pulled up to a stop light in Pelham, N.Y. and fired 13 shots at a stranger's car, striking the man six times.
That's not good.
Meanwhile, outside a strip club in Somerset, N.J., NYPD Sgt. Wanda Anthony allegedly opened fire at a car containing her ex-boyfriend and his new girlfriend. Neither was hit, and Anthony was later pulled over and charged with DWI.
That's not good either. But fortunately for Wanda, she was only sited for DWI. Somehow the opening fire on two civilians sitting in a car doesn't rise to a higher level of crime. Good thing she wasn't so drunk she resorted to "revenge porn." She might have attacked and screwed her ex-boyfriend to death.
And finally, well, hopefully finally... The week's not over yet:
The NYPD's great week of publicity continues: Thursday night, an allegedly drunk on-duty NYPD officer shot his partner in the wrist while the two were drinking at a restaurant in Queens.
Well, for those of you in NYC or going there for the weekend, good luck. You may be dodging more than raindrops if the cops keep on drinking in the town that never sleeps.
