If Obama had a son, he'd look just like 14 year old Shaaliver Douse.

A rookie cop shot and killed a 14-year-old gunslinger on a Bronx street early Sunday — just days after Mayor Bloomberg railed against a flood of firearms falling into the wrong hands.
Shaaliver Douse was shot to death just after 3 a.m. in Melrose when he kept firing a black Astra 9-mm. pistol after two uniformed police officers yelled at him to drop the gun, said NYPD Commissioner Raymond Kelly.

Kelly said the teen — who was due in court on a gun-possession rap and had been arrested in May on an attempted murder charge — is the youngest person to die in a police-involved shooting that he can recall.

Douse was chasing an unknown man down E. 151st St. when the officers intervened.

“It is undetermined at this time whether he fired at the officer or the unknown male,” Kelly said at a Sunday evening press conference.

The deadly encounter Sunday unfolded after 2 rookie cops — a 26-year-old white officer and his black 27-year-old partner — heard gunfire while on patrol on E. 151st St. near Courtlandt Ave.
The officers encountered a terrified man running for his life in the middle of the street with Douse in pursuit, firing wildly at his foe, Kelly said.

He said Douse would have killed the man if the officers hadn’t been there to stop him.

“These officers stopped that from happening,” said Kelly.“I don’t see what the officers could have done any differently.”

He said that while the shooting appeared justified, a full investigation was under way.

But Douse’s distraught aunt, Quwana Barcene, 35, said cops didn’t have to kill her nephew — who she said was a sophomore at the Alfred E. Smith Career and Technical Education High School in the Bronx.

“That’s was my sister’s only baby,” Barcene said.“I’m tired of the police getting away with murder.

“Trayvon Martin is never going to end. Sean Bell happened to my nephew,” she said.“This rookie cop — please bring him up on charges as a murderer.”

The names of the cops, who both joined the NYPD in January, were not immediately released. They were part of an Operation Impact patrol assigned to the high-crime area.

Police were still searching for the unidentified man whom Douse appeared to be intent on killing.

The incident started in front of the Hizam Family Deli on Courtlandt Ave. at E. 151st St., where a security camera captured Douse firing at least three shots at his target from 40 feet away, Kelly said.

Another security camera film showed Douse, wearing a white T-shirt and jeans, chasing the man, dressed in a black T-shirt and black shorts, up E. 151st St.

When the teen fired a 4th shot after the officers told him to drop the gun and freeze, the 26-year-old white officer fired a single fatal shot, police said. The suspect was hit in the lower jaw and died at the scene.

One 9-mm. shell casing was found near his body, matching the other three collected in front of the deli.

“We don’t know why he was shooting,” said Kelly, who expressed condolences to Douse’s mother, Shanise Farrar. Douse lived with her in the Morris II Houses on E. 170th St.

Asked if he planned to reach out directly to the victim’s family, Kelly said,“I’m not planning to do that at this juncture. I may.”

All the wonderful Democrat Community Organizers led by Al Sharpton should be here momentarily. I'll protest with them against the police if it buys me some black votes. And I promise to put an end to Stop & Frisk.

What do you expect the Pseudo Liberal Left is going to do and that is anything possible to say different about the legislative changes to the CRA under the Clinton Adminstration & its involvement forcing banks to loan to people who could not afford these house and now these low income people that were in these houses they have been forclosed on and no longer live in those houses which set empty and see plenty of them which some they have actually destroyed while they were living there thanks to Pseudo Liberalism and their legislative changes to the CRA and the only reason I know this is because I know a guy that works for the banks and travels the united states for banks has to go and checks these house over and determine the condition and the repairs needed after they have been taken back since alot them they couldnt afford the houses they were living in besides couldnt even afford to maintain them and some he says which are a total disasters & a loss besides the fact the low income people that destroyed these houses came from the same culture that lived in the Chicago Projects(Section 8 housing) which was Low Income Housing in Chicago which they detroyed them too and was a Pseudo Liberal Housing Failure there too and again the Pseudo Liberals wanted to repeat the same failure again with the housing market & has devastated consequences to the US Economy.

Apparently, so is Cass Sunstein, Obama's regulatory czar who said web sites should be obliged to remove "false rumors" while liberal laws should be altered to make it easier to sue for spreading such "rumors".

Then there was another advisor, Van Jones, who was forced to resign after admitting to being an avowed communist; and then there was Anita Dunn, who also had to resign after singing the praises of Mao Tse-Tung.

Then, of course, we have WH officials threatening journalists - Bob Woodward, Lenny Davis, James Rosen, Fox News and the Associated Press - and illegally confiscating personal emails and phone calls.

The crème de la crème is Obama publicly demonizing anyone who dares to criticize or oppose his personal vision and agenda. That would be half of us.

Yes, fascist would seem accurate.

You're proving you're a devote right winger extremist son.

All I did was point out how your so called 'source' referenced something that didn't exist.

And you dropped it at that point.

I also pointed out how even wiki shows they're not definitive....

... and again as usual, you dropped it.

Seems you're constantly making things up.

In looking for causes of the subprime mortgage crisis, some people have contended that the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) pushed banking institutions to make high-risk mortgage loans in lower-income communities and that such lending led to the crisis. In a November 2008 study, Federal Reserve economists Glenn Canner and Neil Bhutta analyzed mortgage-related data to assess such arguments and found no empirical evidence to support the claim that the CRA was a major contributor to the subprime crisis.
http://www.philadelphiafed.org/publications/a...
It is a well-known finding of Government watchdog groups that it was government regulatory agencies lax enforcement of the rules and often ignoring violations by the big banks and mortgage lenders that caused the financial subprime crisis to explode --republicans are creating the conditions for another 'train wreck' of our financial system by pushing defunding of these government regulatory agencies so they can not do their job of oversight and policing of Wall Street. Do-nothing republicans in the House wants our government to fail and our economy to collapse because they think that it will hurt President Barack Obama. How did Tea Party republicans get so hateful and destructive?

The Reuter's article makes it appear to be some humongous joint venture with various other government agencies. Unfortunately, those agencies don't communicate with each other in a way that makes any sense___jealousy perhaps with an pinch of stupid and a dash of laziness.

The DEA has been out of control since it's inception.

George W Bush never even bothered with arguing with his critics , he just threw them in jail or sent them to an illegal foreign rendition site.
