There is a massive amount of fail here.
A 25-year-old Japanese tourist — sleeping on a Brooklyn pal’s couch — was wounded early today when a cop on a drug raid accidentally fired his gun through the floor above her.
Ah the perils of booger hooks and bang switches.
The cop’s gun accidentally fired — and the bullet went through Ortiz’s sofa mattress, then through the floorboard and down to the second-floor living room below.
The gun just ‘went off,’ right? Because the NYPD are some of those super special only ones with extensive training n’stuff.
Authorities said the 36-year-old cop whose gun discharged had never fired his weapon before.
Wait, what? You sent a desk jockey on a drug raid??!?!
Look, I don’t really care who you are, before you holster that heater and head out into the general public, send some lead down range. Mmm’k? I know that badge has been blessed by the magical powers of law and order and is supposed to grant the wearer +20 mad skilz, but you’ve got to consider that some people are starting with a deficit.
And just to show I’m not just going to pick on the police here.
“The only thing I know is that there’s a bullet in my ceiling,” Marcus said.
No sweetie, that’s a hole. The bullet is probably in your floor. If it was in your ceiling, your house guest would have been unharmed.
The bullet grazed the tourist’s left forearm.
Wounded but walking on her own, she was taken to Kings County Hospital.
Do the Japanese have a different way of walking that I am unaware of?
