Off-Duty NYPD Officer Carjacked, Suspects in Custody

November 25, 2013  | 

Three gun-toting suspects who persisted in carjacking an off-duty cop in Brooklyn even after she identified herself have been rounded up, police told the New York Daily News Friday.

The 36-year-old officer was getting into her car at 5:15 a.m. Thursday when Patrick James, 22, and an unidentified culprit forced her into the back seat, according to police. She managed to slip out of the car and run past another unidentified man, leaving her handbag with her NYPD shield behind. The men grabbed the bag, dumped the car and fled in a stolen yellow taxi.

Sadly, the rest of the citizens of NY are denied their right to carry firearms for self protection by liberal politicians they voted into office.

They gave up the right by choice by voting that way. No take backs.

But Bloomberg is taking a contigent of 17 # NYPD-trained det. grade or higher personnel w/ him and Kelley wants the city to pay for a 7 # member team to provide his protection after leaving office as well?
