it's negligence while a man died.
While Akai Gurley was dying in a darkened stairwell at a Brooklyn housing development, the cop who fired the fatal bullet was texting his union representative, sources told the Daily News.
Right after rookie cop Peter Liang discharged a single bullet that struck Gurley, 28, he and his partner Shaun Landau were incommunicado for more than six and a half minutes, sources said Thursday.
In the critical moments after the Nov. 20 shooting, the cops’ commanding officer and an emergency operator — responding to a 911 call from a neighbor and knowing the duo was in the area — tried to reach them in vain, sources said.
And these clowns WERE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE PATROLLING THE STAIRWAY...
So. We've got a cop in a place he wasn't supposed to be, with his pistol out for some reason, apparently with his finger on the damned trigger, and after he shoots someone, instead of calling an ambulance, CALLS HIS UNION REP.
