The kid was in a locked room by himself why did the cops not use: MACE or a Stun gun?

Why did a dumb over paid Nassau Cop whip out a 9mm and shoot, he could have used Mace or a stun gun, plus they had the kid trapped in a room in a house?

massapequa park really went down hill.

Then you use a stun gun or pepper spray thats from the dumb dumb security guard hand book. No gun was needed.

The Nassau Cops - I am suprised he knew knew where his gun was located, instead the moron shot his partner.

How about take a few steps back from the kid, hit him with mace, or a stun gun?

Why do cops have Stun Guns or Mace?

Always trigger happy Nassau Cops.

a 150 pd crazed kid is LUNGING at you with a GIGANTIC knife and you think there may be time to take a few steps back before he gets to you or out the door and starts slashing. I think it prob happened to fast for that and I honestly dont think the Nassau cops here even carry Stun guns I live right around the corner. I am not able to judge I wasnt there

Cops got carried away again. Too quick to pull a trigger on that 9mm then the idiot hits another cop shows you how dumb he was.

Massapequa Park turning in to a ghetto.

Do you read before you write? An MTA cop shot the Nassau cop after a jackass retired NYPD, who didn't belong there, yelled gun. Your comments show your ignorance. The punk kid who got killed deserved what he got. What? This time the officers use a taser and spare this ahole his life and what about next time? You know what? There won't be a next time and now people can feel safer in the streets.

Real Life we are talking about: Police use Stun Guns every day, in real life. I am talking about real cops not the Hide and Seek Nassau County Cops or even worse the slowest Pct (7th) in the entire county is Nassau.

Nassau County 7th Pct cops are known to be grouchy and mad if you bother them. They were called and pissed off oviously they had to actually work and move.

These officers had many other choices to make: Call for back up, Riot gear with shields and protective clothing, Mace, pepper spray, tear gas. There was no rush to get Anthony out of that room. Yes he came out only after they forced there way in his baracaded room.

I hope I am not on the jury when his parents sue Nassau tax payers, I will give them Millions $

I had a run in with this kid last July on the LIRR. It was the ride from hell with him on board.

When I first got on the crowded train at Penn Station, he was challenging a guy in a suit to a fist fight. Then he ran into the next car. I told the Conductor there was a problem drunk in the next car. I thought he was drunk, so did all the people around me.

He came back and started threatening me now. He kept going back and forth from one car to the other. He was running amok. Two guys from RVC were helping me. He kept sporadically lunging at me. I raised my feet to kick him if he tried anything. It was wild. I started asking were he was getting off. I couldn't wait for him to leave, it was scarey! The Conductor finally told me he was getting off in Massapequa. The worst train ride in 21 years.

I hope you're not on the jury. His parents should have made him take his meds, but they did not.

What about the 7th Precinct Officer who killed the guy with all the guns in his truck, and saved alot of lives?

Would you rather have the joke cops in Mexico?

Give credit where credit is due.

The guy with the truck was armed and ready to kill you cannot compair the two. The Poor kid was mentally disturbed and needed medical supervision and medication not a bullet in the head.

I don't care what you say the Cops made a very very bad mistake. They rushed the kids room, forced the door open when the cops when after him in the room then the kid went after the officer. No need to rush in after the kid he was in a locked bedroom.

Police had time to make a plan call in help, and get him out safely. Nassau Cops did a bad job here. I hope his parents sue and get millions.

they made those choices and they didnt work. you r quick to blame the P.D. let see who you call when you need the services. they obviously called 4 back up thats the reason all the cops and negotiators were there!! if they forced him pout then why wasnt he killed in his room?? he was killed AFTER HE LUNGED AT THE COPS WHEN HE LEFT THE ROOM!!! the "KID" was an asshole and caused his own demise!!!

i certainly do NOT blame the P.D. except for the retired NYPD who had no business shouting orders at a crime scene he had no business participating in. he IS the reason Officer Breitkopf lost his life!!! this nut job however bares responsability for his own demise. my heart goes out to his family. this guy however gave no thought to what his actions will do to his parents. this is a very tough situation and NOBODY knows what they would have done when faced with this situation and lets all hope we dont EVER have to find out. this goes to show how important it is for the mentally unstable to get the treatment they need!!

For all the folks who left a long list of other ways to stop a person lunging at you with two huge knives, covered with even more knives (no place to even attempt a grab)I think you are confusing the Police Officers with Batman or perhaps Inspector Gadget. Get real people. While they carry a lot of equipment on their belt, they do not carry all this other crap. Had this disturbed man stayed in his room, these Officers would not have been put in the position where deadly force was their ONLY option.

I am very glad neither Officer was seriously injured and I wish the people who comment negatively would really think about what they would do in the same situation. A disturbed person with knives injures/kills the same as a sane person with knives.
