In Buffalo, NY at 3:00 AM 2 cops went to investigate a car parked the wrong way. As they made contact they discovered the passenger had a gun. After a brief struggle the driver floored the accelerator and drug the cops about 150 feet.
The officers were treated and released from a hospital and the errant driver was captured soon after the altercation.
At trial the driver said he was afraid of being shot and killed and that he was soooo scared that he just wanted to get away.
Here’s a hint, don’t put yourself in a position where you might come to the attention of the police.
At this bozo’s trial he used the “duress” defense and was acquitted by the judge.
Although he skated on the assault charge he’s a parolee and will face the music on that in the future.
Ah, maybe not. After all it’s New York and the cops are ALWAYS the ones at fault. No wonder their crime rate is spiraling out of control.
STAY SAFE, BUCKLE UP, WEAR YOUR VEST AND TURN ON YOUR CAMERA!
