Two men are dead in a senseless act that happened in minutes. In Lt. Pigotts case, did the NYPD offer counseling to the officer when the death occured, or did they cover their a$$es by reprimanding him? My condolences to the Morales family, they did the right thing calling the police; but no sooner than their loved one was given a burial did the media and political activists make this case into bloodthirsty frenzy. Lt. Pigott made a heartfelt apology for his actions. I guess that doesn't count anymore in todays society.

Bravo for your post!!! It is unfortunate that the media and others have put the department under such pressure, that their first inclination is to cover themselves.
I too want to know if he was offered counseling, or did they think totally humiliating him after 21 years of outstanding service would have no affect on him?
From what I understand, more police officers die by their own hand than by anything else. Ya think maybe this needs to be addressed??? And when they had him hand in his gun....what's the policy?...they obviously didn't take all his guns.
Ray Kelly should take a long hard look at this and hopefully will learn something that might save another officers life. My very deepest condolences to his family.
