The Associated Press/ABC News Report: A Black Man Shot a NYC Cop This Morning, but the Cop was Also Black, so It’s a Terrible Crime!

In multiculturalism’s world of friends and enemies, which we live in, which is ruled by persons, not laws, no act or omission may be called criminal or lawful, until we know who the players were, and determine how many quota points each had. Since Officer Sherrod Stuart is black, he has sufficient quota points to be considered a crime victim, rather than a perp who had engaged in “police violence.”
In contrast, BART (CA) Officer Johannes Mehserle was white, and so when in 2009 he accidentally killed criminal Oscar Grant by shooting Grant with his service weapon, rather than his Taser, Mehserle was a criminal, was prosecuted to the max, and went to prison. Conversely, seven years earlier, when Madera, CA Police Officer Marcie Noriega had committed the identical act, in killing Everardo Torres, it was determined that Hispanic Officer Noriega had the requisite quota points, and thus the case was closed as all just a tragic accident, with no prosecution or punishment of Officer Noriega.
P.S.: "Large Fight" translates into English as "riot."
P.P.S.: The Associated Press, ABC News, and the New York Daily News all refused to publish photographs of suspect Christopher Rice. I can't imagine why.
New York City Police Officer Shot Responding to Large Fight
By The Associated Press
NEW YORK — Jan 9, 2016, 9:54 A.M. ET
A New York City police officer was shot in the ankle [N.S. correction: foot] early Saturday during an exchange of gunfire with a suspect involved in a large fight, authorities said.
Police Commissioner William Bratton said 25-year-old Officer Sherrod Stuart was wounded on his fourth anniversary with the department. Stuart was hospitalized with injuries that are not considered life-threatening, Bratton said.
A 19-year-old suspect, Christopher Rice, was in serious condition at the same hospital, the commissioner said.
Stuart and other officers were responding to a street fight with guns, bats and knives following a large party in the Bronx at around 2 a.m., according to Bratton.
Stuart was struck in the right foot during an exchange of gunfire with Rice, Bratton said. Stuart returned fire, striking Rice four times, according to Bratton.
Five people from the melee were treated at hospitals for stab wounds, Bratton said, and four guns were recovered from the area.
Bratton said Rice had five prior arrests — including one Friday on a charge of fare beating. He said Rice was released from court at 11 p.m. Friday, just three hours before the shooting.
Bratton, who joined Mayor Bill de Blasio at a news conference at Lincoln Hospital after both men visited the wounded officer, said Stuart is the son of an NYPD detective who is currently on active duty with the U.S. Army.
De Blasio called Stuart "an impressive young man who went into this very dangerous situation and handled himself so well."
Stuart was shot a day after a [white] Philadelphia police officer was ambushed by a [black] suspect [sic] and shot three times.
[White] Philadelphia Officer Jesse Hartnett was in stable condition Saturday. Police said a [black] man confessed to shooting Hartnett and told investigators he had pledged his allegiance to the Islamic State group.
This story has been corrected to show the spelling of the officer's name is Sherrod Stuart, not Sharrod Stewart.
