    The networks are making a big deal about this here. the coverage has been interrupting network TV shows with scenes that resemble the OJ chase.

    I understand its tragic but, a housing cop got shot in East Harlem aka Spanish Harlem. Why is anyone surprised about this?

    One suspect was in custody and a weapon was recovered at the scene, sources said.

    The officer, who is a housing impact cop from the 23rd Precinct, was taken to Harlem Hospital in serious condition.

    its Spanish Harlem. you don't walk in the projects after dark. every cop knows this. you don't take a sherman tank into the projects after dark cause the residents will shoot at you. its what they do when there's nothing on TV.

    the city projects have cops that patrol the public housing because it takes too long to get cops into the inner areas when something happens, plus the idea is that police visibility will keep the crime down. in reality it sets the cops up as targets.

    when first moved into Manhattan, i had a walkup apt on W94th St. The border between the upper west side and Harlem then was W95th and E96th. I had to go to the supermarket before sundown because it was on the north side of the street and was not safe after dark; the south side was clear. In the summer you could go up to approx E110th and Madison because everyone was outside till midnight, but you do not go to Spanish Harlem after dark once the summer ends.

    most places in Manhattan are ok but the city projects have never been. I grew up in Brooklyn and even the kids who lived there did not walk within the projects at night. they really shot at people out of boredom. sometimes they threw bricks off the roofs.

    I think they're making a big deal partly due to the fact that they have the FDR shutdown both ways. Probably will be shutdown all night long.

    Just after 2 p.m., the officers discovered a 39-year-old African American man interfering with traffic and causing a disturbance in the area of 6th Avenue and F Street, according to SDPD Capt. David Nisleit.

    As officers approached him, the suspect started running from them for about a block. Nisleit said the man then pulled a large-frame pistol from his waistband and pointed it at the officers.

    The police, feeling threatened, opened fire on the man.:right:

    Falling to the ground, the man did not release his grip on his gun, so the officers demanded he release it. When he started to sit up with pistol in hand, they shot him again, Nisleit said.

    The man was taken to UC San Diego Medical Center, where he died. His identity is being withheld until his family is notified.
