    These race soliders ain't got no cut cards.

    They'll murder black boys, black men & women, and now black elderly women.

    Nothing worse than a coward with a badge and a gun, who has an innate fear of melinated people, who have the power to put them on the brink of genetic oblivion.

    We get angry, protest and scream #BlackLivesMatter......Until the next unarmed killing occurs. Then it's rinse, wash, repeat all over again.

    An not one peep from our Jack & Jill bourgeoisie "first black President."

    An niggas think crooked Hillary is gonna advocate for police reform to help black people from getting popped. Obama actually gave her a pass on not doing shit, because she can say "he didn't do anything on police reform and he's black!!

    White savior complex on fleek.

    Bat-wielding suspects like Deborah Danner are ‘good target’ for shooting because NYPD trains on them at firing range, cop union boss says

    The head of the sergeant’s union said Thursday that police officers are trained at the firing range with a target of a man wielding a baseball bat, and blasted the mayor and the police commissioner’s decision to put the sergeant who shot Deborah Danner on modified duty.

    “We train this way. This is what we shoot at,” Ed Mullins, head of the Sergeants Benevolent Association, told reporters Thursday, as he held up what he described as a target from the NYPD shooting range. “We're taught a baseball bat is a deadly weapon.”

    The target shows five drawings, all of men. One is holding a police badge, another a bat, the third a gun, and the fourth a knife. In the fifth, the man has his hands at his sides.

    Mullins said he received that target from the shooting range on Wednesday. “It’s up there, it’s being used.”

    “Shooting at a cop would be a bad target,” he said.

    But the bat-wielder?

    “That would be a good target. That would be a good target,” Mullins said.

    The targets are meant to present different scenarios officers could face and “create mental thought,” he said.

    “The purpose of it is to create mental thought. You create mental thought. A scenario could be you run into an off duty cop. A scenario could be, it could be someone with a knife, a deadly weapon,” Mullins said.

    When asked for comment about Mullins’ remarks, NYPD spokesman J. Peter Donald said, “A paper target of pictures meant to measure agility and accuracy cannot speak to whether a shooting in a real world situation is justified or otherwise.

    “That is a determination after an investigation that considers all the facts, including the decision making process of the officer(s) involved,” he said.

    According to the NYPD’s 2014 firearms discharge report, NYPD guidelines bar the use of deadly physical force “unless they have probable cause to believe they must protect themselves or another person present from imminent death or serious physical injury.” On Monday, Sgt. Hugh Barry shot and killed Deborah Danner, 66, in her Castle Hill bedroom.

    Danner had a history of mental illness and police responded to her apartment on four prior occasions.

    Barry convinced Danner who drop a pair of scissors, but when she lunged at him with a wooden baseball bat, he shot her twice, killing her.

    NYPD Sergeant Pleads Not Guilty to Murder of Mentally Ill Bronx Woman

    THE BRONX — An NYPD sergeant pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder charges brought nine months after he fatally shot a mentally disturbed Bronx woman in October in an altercation that both the mayor and commissioner strongly condemned at the time, officials said.

    Sgt. Hugh Barry, an eight-year veteran with the NYPD, gunned down Deborah Danner, 66, whom he had convinced to drop a pair of scissors before she then threatened him with a baseball bat in her Bronx home on Oct. 18, officials said.

    Barry, who was suspended without pay, was arrested Wednesday and appeared in Bronx Supreme Court a little after 3 p.m. for his arraignment.

    The officer walked into the courtroom wearing a dark suit and did not appear to show any emotion while he was arraigned.

    Fellow detectives filled the benches in support and it was not immediately clear if Danner's family members were also in the courtroom.

    Barry pleaded not guilty to murder, two counts of manslaughter and criminally negligent homicide, His bail was set at $100,000 by Judge Robert Neary.

    Bronx District Attorney Darcel Clark said the grand jury deliberated for more than two months before indicting Barry.

    “When I asked last December that a special grand jury be impaneled, I said there would be no timetable, and that a fair investigation would take place and go wherever the evidence takes it. I commend the grand jurors for their painstaking work and for giving so much time away from their families," Clark said.

    “I want to express my condolences again to the Danner family for the heartbreaking loss they have suffered. I thank them for their cooperation and patience throughout these last seven months."

    Mayor Bill de Blasio previously condemned Barry at the time for not using a department-issued stun gun or calling for a hostage negotiator to defuse the situation.

    "Deborah Danner should be alive right now. Period," de Blasio said at the time.

    Police would not comment further on the charges.

    Clark decided to investigate the case after State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman determined that the shooting did not fall under his authority because Danner was armed with a baseball bat when she was shot.

    Assistant District Attorney Wanda Perez-Maldonado said during the arraignment that Danner suffered from paranoid schizophrenia and police had previously taken her to the hospital without incident.

    She had not taken her medication when officers responded to a 911 call of an emotionally disturbed person
    , the ADA added.

    "On that day, Sgt. Barry failed to seek critical background information about Ms. Danner’s condition or behavior," Perez-Maldonado said. "He didn’t know who she was, and he didn’t take steps to learn more about her."

    Defense attorney Andrew Quinn said Barry is married, has strong ties to the Westchester community where he lives and has "absolutely no" criminal history.

    Quinn added that the officer responded to a "call where he was confronted with an emotionally disturbed person who, by everyone’s opinion, was armed with a deadly weapon, a bat.”

    Sergeants Benevolent Association officials said they were "outraged" at Barry's indictment.

    "This is an absolute disgrace," said SBA president, Ed Mullins.

    "The fact is that Sgt. Barry did everything right. He responded to the scene, took immediate charge and de-escalated the situation by convincing the women to put the scissors down. He was well within his rights to take the action that he did, even though it was the last thing he — or any police officer — would ever want to do," Mullins added.

    The SBA leader also argued that the mayor's initial comments along with NYPD Commissioner James O'Neill's improperly colored public perception of the shooting.

    "They immediately poisoned the well, supplanting in the hearts and minds of a gullible public, the grand jury pool and Bronx District Attorney Darcel D. Clark that a crime had occurred. They did not just throw Sgt. Barry under the bus; in the court of public opinion they ran over him with a steamroller," Mullins said.

    In her life, Danner had been a vocal critic of police violence, taking to Twitter repeatedly to condemn it.

    She had written about mentally ill people being killed by law enforcement in a 2012 essay, NBC New York reported.

    Police arrived at Danner's Castle Hill home on Pugsley Avenue, where they'd been called about four times in previous years, just minutes after 6 p.m. when a neighbor complained that she was acting irrationally, officials said.

    Danner was clasping scissors and threatening Barry and the other responding officers until the sergeant was able to calm her, officials said.

    She was being escorted out of her home and eventually to a hospital when she grabbed a bat and charged Barry, prompting him to pull his sidearm and fire two shots into her torso, officials said.

    Danner's sister, Jennifer, was in the hallway waiting when she heard the shots, de Blasio said at the time.

    "She said she was standing there in that hallway ready to go to the hospital to meet the doctors to see what they could do. And she told me she did not in any way expect to hear gunshots ring out," said de Blasio.

    Jennifer Danner, who had legal guardianship over her sister, had been by her side during a decades-long battle with mental illness, de Blasio said.

    "She told me that Deborah's mental health problems had emerged during college and that literally for all those decades since Jennifer had tried to help her sister in a very, very difficult situation," the mayor said.

    The mayor condemned the actions of Barry, who was stripped of his badge and gun in the aftermath, and added that he had already been trained in de-escalation tactics following the police killing of Eric Garner.

    The mayor was part of a large chorus of politicians who felt Barry acted improperly and continued to condemn him Wednesday afternoon.

    Rev. Al Sharpton said the charges were a "good step in a long walk toward justice" and said he would monitor the trial.

    "National Action Network has previously said that the need for an overhaul in police training and a review of those qualified to become police officers is apparent and must be dealt with," Sharpton said in a statement. "We cannot return to a city of Eleanor Bumpurs type shootings that we fought many years ago in the same borough.”

    Bumpurs was a mentally ill woman holding a knife who was fatally shot by an officer in 1984 after police broke down her door while trying to evict her Bronx apartment.

    Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. added that he did not think the shooting was indicative of the NYPD.

    "Clearly, there were options available to Sgt. Barry which he failed to implement and his conduct in this case is by no means a reflection on the great work of the New York City Police Department and its dedicated members," Diaz Jr. said.

    "We once again offer our condolences to Ms. Danner's family during this difficult time," Diaz added.

    Mullins said after the arraignment he thought Barry would acquitted of all the charges.

    "I can't stress enough the damage that was done by the comments of this police commissioner, the actions of the mayor and the politics of this office that have led to this indictment. None of us were in the room that night and yet we have an indictment of a sergeant who went to work...trying to help people," he said outside the courthouse.

    "In this type of business, sometimes people die. Things happen."

    Another Cop Accused Of Murder Gets A GoFundMe Campaign

    GoFundMe's current rules do not allow campaigns for people charged with crimes, but that hasn't stopped people from donating more than $23,000 to Hugh Barry's case

    A New York police officer was charged with murder on Wednesday. A GoFundMe campaign on behalf of New York Police Department Sgt. Hugh Barry was launched on Thursday. By Friday morning, it had received more than $23,000 of its $500,000 goal.

    The campaign comes after Barry, who fatally shot Deborah Danner, a 66-year-old black woman with schizophrenia, last October, became the first NYPD cop to be charged with murder in 17 years.

    “The charges that Sergeant Barry faces are a travesty,” wrote the person who set up the fundraiser, who is using the name Greg Sanfilippo. “And, now the tragedy of the situation has been compounded by the travesty of charging a fine person with criminal intent.”

    Sanfilippo, who wrote that he had worked with Barry for five years, “watched him compassionately assist people of all ages, colors, and circumstances. He added: “Throughout it all, Hugh’s character, moral fiber, and professionalism was a model for other officers.”

    Despite the praise for Barry on GoFundMe, many questions remain surrounding the fatal shooting. In October, Danner’s neighbors called the police, who had dealt with her before and were familiar with her issues, because she was acting irrationally. Barry claimed that Danner was armed with a pair of scissors, but dropped them. She then allegedly picked up a baseball bat and tried to hit him, so he shot her twice in self-defense. But community and mental illness advocates and, most prominently, NYPD Commissioner Jimmy O’Neill and New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, were quick to condemn Barry’s actions.

    “Deborah Danner should be alive right now. Period,” de Blasio said the day after the incident. “We did fail and we need to say it out loud.”

    Barry is accused of not following NYPD protocol on emotionally disturbed people or waiting for a specially trained unit to arrive. He also did not try less lethal means of countering Danner’s alleged attack on him, such as his Taser, the prosecutor in his case said on Wednesday.

    GoFundMe’s policies allow for money to be raised on behalf of police officers, but, as of its current policy, does not allow fundraisers for “defense or support of anyone alleged to be involved in criminal activity.” This still hasn’t stopped others from creating campaigns for those involved in high-profile, police-related deaths. A Sept. 2014 campaign on behalf of Darren Wilson, who fatally shot Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, raised $500,000. But with a previous fundraiser for the South Carolina officer who was charged with the murder of Walter Scott getting removed, it could signal that Barry’s may also be pulled. GoFundMe did not immediately respond to Vocativ’s request for comment.

    In addition to being charged with second-degree murder, Barry was charged with first- and second-degree manslaughter and criminally negligent homicide. He has been suspended without pay.
