  1. i posted this elsewhere... but think about it...

    why did it take the medical examiner to determine that it was NYPD who shot the alleged assailant and that his wounds were not self-inflicted when, apparently, the man was wounded by three shots in a gun battle with police?

    think of it... there was a gun battle with police and the man was later found dead. he had three bullet wounds and the first reports were that he died from self-inflicted wounds? it's ridiculous on its face. who put out that obvious erroneous report and why?
