    The death penalty doesn't exist for crimes against the state of New York. That's irrelevant for a federal prosecution, which is for crimes against the United States. Terrorism is normally handled at the federal level. I'll grant that the actual capital crime he's being charged with so far is a bit odd (providing material support to terrorist groups isn't capital, so he's also being charged with causing death by damaging/destroying a motor vehicle used in interstate commerce with reckless disregard for human life), but since the terrorism charge makes it a federal case already I don't see much wrong with charging him with all relevant federal crimes he committed. There's not some specific decision needed to "override the death penalty ban of a state," which isn't something the feds can actually do. There's a decision to charge someone with crimes against the United States and seek a penalty authorized by the laws of the United States. NY law isn't being overridden, it simply doesn't apply in the first place.

    The US has the death penalty. “Put him to death”doesn’t imply “kill him without trial;” it can easily mean “try him on capital charges and seek the death penalty.” Please don’t take the least charitable interpretation of people’s posts.

    The NYPD definitely had a few early 80s ('81 models IIRC) Chrysler LeBarons.  I want to say that they were ordered after the Volare ended production in '80.  In 1982 the LeBaron name changed platforms (the M-body verison becoming the Chrysler New Yorker/Chrysler Fifth Avenue (in its top trim level), and the Gran Fury moved to the M-body platform like the Diplomat.

    Hate to be a pedant, but that's not quite correct. Police officers are trained to and are legally empowered to Shoot to Stop the Threat, NOT Shoot to Kill.

    Kosciusko County Sheriff if I'm not mistaken, I actually wanted to make a BCSO pack inspired by that design earlier, what a coincidence that Lund posted it here.
    Their cars are pretty sexy.

    Contrary to popular belief, it really is not that easy to hit a target. Real life is nothing like the movies or video games, and shooting someone in a real life situation is completely different than shooting a target at the range. Otherwise everyone would only ever shoot one bullet, and fully automatic machine guns wouldn't even be necessary for the military. I've only been shooting once and, although a cop that was with us said I was pretty good, I'm no expert, but all the police shootings where multiple officers fired multiple shots and the suspect only ended up with one or two bullet wounds probably backs me up.

    It's been stated by Sam above that we will not tolerate baseless conspiracies on the forum, especially in a thread such as this, if you want to post in this forum, you do so by adhering to the guidelines.

    I noticed that several people have been replying to this with their own takes on the suspect's motive and whether or not he's right wing, left wing, and generally trying to appropriate blame in a partisan manner (these posts have been removed).
     
    I don't believe that in something like this it really matters if the person who pulls the trigger is right wing, left wing, or a chicken wing.  It's simply reprehensible and it's something so tragic that surely people of all political philosophies should be able to come together in search of a solution, not politicking or blame.
     
    In short, please don't reply to this thread with attempts to advance your own political agendas.

    On a sadder note, I was told that this footage was from the line of duty death of Housing Police Officer Gary Peaco.  The circumstances surrounding this case are tragic to say the very least.  City officers were involved in a shootout with armed robbery suspects.  After pinning the officers down with gunfire, two of the shooters stole the city RMP.  Officer Peaco's HAPD RMP was responding when it was struck by an NYC-EMS ambulance on an unrelated call, causing it to spin out, strike a lamppost and tree, and catch fire.

    No you don't tackle someone with a metal pipe its not happening. You have to look at the big picture he could possibly hurt you or someone else with that pipe. If you look at any case/ case law any person that had a knife or big objects have been shot and justified.
     
    Georgia Tech police shot a man with a multi tool knife because they asked him multiple times to drop the knife. They had to take out the threat. The shooting ended up being justified.
     
     
    At the end of the day if you were put in that decision I would like you to tackle him and tell me the outcome.

    I don't know the particulars in this case, but this is a general response..
     
    A metal pipe is being used as a deadly weapon, just like a car, just like a knife. The general public always says "why didn't you tase him?" A response to that is you have to be close enough to tase him. The taser probes don't have unlimited string. At that point your putting your self at risk of getting hit by a pipe. Your not going to bring a taser or OC to a knife fight the force option in that is not equal. So say you tase the guy with the pipe and it doesn't make contact has happened thousands of times or the taser has no effect on the person that has also happened then what are you going to do now you are dangerously close to a person that has a pipe with no reasoning.  A pipe can kill just like anything else, its not about coward its about going home at the end of the day. No officer really wants to shoot, and kill anyone. But the general public likes to criticize the officer for not using this force option, when at the end of the day the person who is saying it has no idea what they are talking about, and or has never been put in that situation. 
     
     
    The same people have been invited to do a police simulation on a projector, and was put in a scenario, and has ended up killing someone when it was not justified. Then they said oh dang I didn't realize you only have a couple seconds to make that decision. 
     
     
    A lot of people want to Monday night quarterback a decision that was made, and just end up sounding really ignorant. People should also read state law, and federal laws.

    I think that's an easter egg integrated within LCPDFR itself, not GTA IV. I vaguely remember that, but an interesting find. Thanks for sharing.
