He's a quadriplegic now thanks to the West Seneca Police. They shot him in the back of his neck even though he was not armed. The police were cleared of any misconduct (what a surprise), and the DA has charged Edwards with criminal facilitation, which is a bullsh*t charge since he had no idea what that lunatic was going to do. As if he isn't suffering enough. I hope West Seneca is ready to cough up several million dollars to cover his legal and medical expenses for the rest of his life, not that he'll get to enjoy any of it. The West Seneca justice system is rife with corruption and bad cops.

All charges against Jeff Edwards have been dismissed. It will never make up for the irreversible damage those four West Seneca Police caused to him. They should pay dearly for emptying their guns like they did, considering that only two bullets hit Brylski, and one bullet ended up in the BACK of Edwards' neck. They shot up a car with a defenseless woman inside. Neighbors were hitting the floors of their homes so they wouldn't get shot. How is this "protecting the community???" They should have to give up their badges.

FU, as*wipe. Why don't you shut YOUR mouth? He didn't know the guy had a gun and was going to shoot at them. They provoked it by pulling them over for no reason, knowing the guy was off his rocker. Even the neighbors were afraid of getting shot by errant bullets from those stupid keystone cops. Edwards did not deserve to get the worst of this, and his life has been ruined by being a good samaratin. Most cops I've ever known are bullies with badges and break more laws than anyone else I know, so don't act like they're all so wonderful. They don't prevent crimes, they just come around after the fact, whenever they feel like responding. I've seen that firsthand many times.

for all you ppl backing up the west seneca police, maybe you need to get your facts stright first. Jeff was the driver, unarmed. police first shot him in the stomach and after he went down, shot him 2 more times in the back/neck area. If he was already down, they didnt need to keep shooting at him and now because they got fire happy, he is paralized and still in the hospital. No one deserves to live the rest of there lives like that.

Thank you for the information. You seem to know what really happened. I can't believe that the grand jury cleared all the cops of any wrongdoing in the criminal case, but I hope they all pay dearly in the civil case. This man did not deserve the fate he was dealt and should be taken care of. The cops should start with a sincere apology to him for ruining his life.

I completly agree. This man should never have been in the car. If he is sane enough to be in the car then he is sane enough to get pulled over and handle it like he should.

You are cops. Man up and stop acting as if shooting an unarmed man is in your job description. I can name names, just by reading your tone. This whole department is going down and I have plenty of evidece. oink oink

I hope you are right. Those cops should have been charged with attempted murder and should lose their badges and their right to carry weapons. I bet the Buffalo News would be interested in your story. Matt Spina is an investigative reporter and knows all about the notorious blue wall. They owe Edwards something since they ruined his life over a grudge they had with a mentally ill man.

So after reading the article about this unfortunate story, I can obviously sympathize with Jeff Edwards. Were any of his behaviors that day malicious? Does he deserve to be paralyzed? Probably not, however, at the end of the day, he put himself in that situation by making the decisions he made. First off, why would he give a mentally unstable man a high powered rifle? Why would he allow a mentally unstable man into his car with a fully loaded rifle? The unfortunate part about being in law enforcement is that you never know the intention of anybody associating themselves with someone who has just opened fire at law enforcement. When any member of law enforcement takes fire, it is their duty to protect themselves and ensure the threat has been neutralized. Again, anyone in that vehicle was at risk for involving themselves with that situation. However, Jeff Edwards was an unfortunate result of a risque deadly situation. We must remember, the patrol officers who pulled that vehicle over that day did not expect the crazed man to open fire with a high powered assault rifle, had they, I am pretty sure that a SWAT team would have been called upon. SWAT is used to dealing with situations like this as they are being proactive, not reactive. The local patrol reacted to a situation that had imminent danger to their lives. I want to be clear, I don't think Jeff Edwards deserves to be paralyzed. If anyone is to blame for this situation it is the crazed mentally unstable man.

Edwards traded a deer rifle for a Bronco with a plow MANY months before he realized Brylski was unstable. Brylski could have gone to any sporting goods store and bought a rifle. The police KNEW Brylski had a gun and was unstable. They KNEW he would shoot at them if they threatened him. They lay in wait and did NOTHING to stop Edwards from entering the residence, even though they warned the tenants and Brylsi's daughters, one of whom indeed had their phone numbers. They KNEW Brylski could be in the car, yet they provoked a paranoid schizophrenic man who was already concerned about the police wanting to harm him by pulling them over. Edwards and D'Angelo were a part of the public which the police were supposed to be protecting, and over 50 rounds were discharged in a RESIDENTIAL area, and put everyone who lived nearby at risk. They could have shot one of their own officers with their recklessness. These four officers were awarded Medals of Valor, but in my opinion, they should have their badges and gun privileges stripped and be fired for their deeds. Besides, over 50 rounds shot and only four strikes at close range? That doesn't sound like well-trained officers to me. Edwards deserves justice and West Seneca should just man up and pay the man for his suffering.

Since you seem to suffer with an inability to sort out details, I will try and spell them out for you:

1. Mr Edwards was unarmed and in the process of trying to get Mr. Brylski to a place where he felt more safe - intentions being to eventually get him where he could receive proper, medical help.

2. Mr Edwards, as seen in the video, raised his hands OUT of the car window in surrender before he backed his way out of the car, face down, on his hands and knees.

3. Mr Edwards was shot TWICE, while on the ground, in a state of surrendering or full surrender.

4. While Mr. Brylski shot off 2 shots at the onset, he them threw the weapon into the street and there was NEVER, EVER any firing from the area of the car again ... and yet the cops shot of 50 rounds.

If you are going to argue very serious and complex matters, learn your language and how to read and write first. Because, clearly by your remarks, you don't know how to spell, write OR read with any sense of comprehension.

After you accomplish how to debate effectively and with some intellect, start batting your bullshit theories around. Perhaps you have no empathy for the fact that this is a human being with people who love him and who he loves ...

... your vacancy is deafening in your shallow post.

If they had wanted to intervene with Mr Brylski, they should have done it while they were casing his house.

JMO - would have been the more socially responsible and certainly the most organized thing they could have done. Warn the n'bors, etc.

It was handled poorly by the police from the onset and from whom the officers received their instructions needs to be investigated, as well, imo.

WTF are you talking about??? He DID pull over!

He was unarmed and unaware that Mr Brylski was armed - he was trying to help a sick friend.

He surrendered and was shot twice by the cops AFTER the gun was surrendered and was face down, on the ground.

Jesus - it's people like you that make me ALWAYS want a Judge and not a Jury trial.
