NYPD Shooting In Harlem Revisited

I see that Gov. David Paterson has called for a thorough investigation but has stopped short of saying that race was a factor. Ok. I will accept that pending the investigation.

He was however, quoted asĀ adding that the shooting was not deliberate.

Not deliberate? How does that work then?

The cop who shot Edwards didn’t deliberately pull his gun out, but did so accidentally?

He didn’t deliberately switch the safety off, but did so accidentally?

And he didn’t deliberately fire his gun six times, but did so accidentally?

Hmmm. Sounds to me like the NYPD needs better training for its cops with so many “accidents” happening.
