Not only -apparently from this story- It's alright to stab-attempted murder with a deadly weapon-a police officer but to break the poor perp ankle-while he fightiong back(this refering to the NYPD that was stabed by an immagrant in the head) is wrong...I'm glad the NYPD didn't spill hot coffee on the perp crouch..that would of been a easy one millon dollar lawsuit.What's next..Police Officer being sued by perp because officer hit him with a banana and caused ants to bite him.......Rediculous....
