“A former Wall Street analyst threatened to go on a killing spree in Harlem,” nypost.com reports, “but was busted with an arsenal of weapons after a family member called cops.” Fair enough—if you discount the possibility that the bust stemmed from a family vendetta and accept the “fact” that the biz brain suffers from schizophrenia. Anyway, what of this arsenal? “William Greene, 35, could have done a lot of damage with the collection of guns he kept inside the stately brownstone at 137th Street where he lived — including an AR-15 assault rifle, which is the same gun used in last July’s Colorado theater shooting.” A collection including an AR-15 (in Mayor Bloomberg’s gun-free zone no less). So what other weapons did Greene stash at Stately Wayne Manor?
In addition to the rifle, cops found a handgun, more than 850 rounds of ammunition and two large- capacity magazines.
And . . . that’s it. Seems to me the Post’s editors ought to talk to a few people of the gun and get out to the range more. But again, if this was a successful police intervention of a potential spree killer, hats off to the NYPD for not shooting any dogs or innocent bystanders while taking Mr. Greene into custody for treatment.
