N.Y. Officers Handcuffed Shot Man Who Struck Cop With Car

October 19, 2010  | 

The New York college football player who was fatally shot after striking a Mount Pleasant (N.Y.) Police officer with a vehicle during a street brawl was handcuffed by officers following the shooting.

Danroy "DJ" Henry, 20, was handcuffed and laying on the ground for 15-20 minutes after the shooting, reports CNN.

Officers had responded to a brawl outside Finnigan's Grill in Thornwood, N.Y., according to Chief Louis Alagno of the Mount Pleasant (N.Y.) PD. Here's an excerpt of what ensued:

Officers were breaking up fights, police said, when "a vehicle parked in the fire lane" accelerated. A police officer tried to stop the vehicle, which Henry was driving, but its mirror struck the officer and the officer "ended up on the hood," said police.

My sentiments exactly RR. It is so easy for self righteous reporters and others to sit in their safe places and criticize anything police officers do to protect themselves or others. And since when is it news that the friends and family of the poor innocent victim of police use of force that CNN and other bleeding hearts seem to be implying was excessive? We'll have to wait for the conclusions of the investigation which will hopefully be unbiased and beyond the reach of what public opinion THINKS happened based on news reports.
