The poor kids got killed by the 7th Pct Nassau police Officer . I bet lunge with a knife is a good BS story that made up to cover their @ss. Nassau had a bread down of Policy and command and wish they would admit Police made a bad judjent call. I would even continue on by saying I think these officers need to be retrained and possibly suspended for 1 month. How about only 1 bullet to the hand with the knife, or one bullet to the knee? So many other choices they could have made but did not.

So many retards on this forum who don't seem to live in the real world. You sir, are one of them.

Close quarters, lunatic lunges at you with a hunting knife. You are going to take one shot at his moving hand? His moving knee? Your next of kin would be sooooo proud of your restraint.

Who knows how many lives were saved by the death of this kid? We'll never know.

Poor kid? The "kid" in question (21 Years old) was lunging at the officer with a huge hunting knife. He had several knives strapped to his person. The officers in question weren't unprovoked.

In fact, he was harassing one of the neighbors with the hunting knife in question ... a 70 year old woman who was driving up to her home at the time. He ran up to her car and banged on it and scared the hell out of her.

I live in the same town ... less than a dozen blocks from the youth in question. He was known for carrying knives. And, in my opinion, not all there. Do 21 year olds make stupid mistakes? Yes, but I'll be damned if I'd lunge at a cop when they've got their guns drawn.

The cop (plain clothes) that was killed died because someone on the scene yelled "gun" when they saw him with his rifle.

Two people lost their lives at the scene because of foolish decisions.

The "kid" died because he lunged at armed cops with a hunting knife and the cop died because someone that should've minded his own business and stayed away yelled "gun".

Stupidity Kills and this proves it.

I was visiting a friend in Massapequa last year pulled over by Nassau Police in 7th pct, they had guns drawn on me before I could go for my wallet. I was driving a all black 2007 Hummer H2 with tinted windows. I was thrown to the ground and frisked; the 7th officers kept saying stop resisting or will shoot you @ss black man.

When the Police ran my drivers license, and found out I am an actor they said sorry it is a misunderstanding and a mistake. I files harassment charged against all the officers by my claim was dropped - no surprise Huh? I seen how quick Nassau police were to draw Guns on a innocent man!

Dumb ass - I use the term sparingly, but your poor grammar and understanding of the world at large warrants it in this situation - only you can drop a harassment "charged" against them... So if it was dropped, you dropped it.

Additionally, anybody driving around in any car with tinted windows (a violation of the NYS Vehicle and Traffic Law) will have guns drawn on them. You see, dumbass, if the officers can't see you and the inside of the car, they can't be assured that they are not in danger. Accordingly, they draw their weapons and secure the driver until they are sure that there is nobody else that is in the vehicle that is a threat.

If you don't want to be subject to such common sense treatment, don't drive with tinted windows.

Hello my two cents on this subject. Note sure if I being Greek had anything to do with the way I was treated - I was on Sunrise Hwy pulled over by Seaford seventh squad. I was ordered to pull to a side road in Massapequa Park at 9:30pm in the evening. I had two officersÂ’ guns drawn directly at me after a search and frisk they said it was mistaken identity and let me go - I was advised to call the seventh squad if I had any questions a desk sgt would assist. What dump Azz Police in Nassau County?
