OK, that’s a fairly liberal interpretation of events. Still . . . nypost.com reports that Joann “no e” Clarke’s boyfriend called the po-po to his Pelham Bay apartment last year, “telling a 911 dispatcher [that] Clarke was emotionally disturbed and ‘might hurt herself.’ Officers found Clarke with steak and carving knives, cutting into her own body before eventually running at one of them with a knife in hand, according to a published report.” So an unnamed officer (of course) shot her. And missed . . .
That’s when one of the officers fired his weapon, hitting the 43-year-old in the leg in the March 2012 incident. Clarke claims the officers were negligent, “unfit, incompetent and/or improperly or insufficiently trained,” according to a Bronx Supreme Court suit filed this month.
Missed center mass, that is. She forgot to mention the role played—again, still—by the mandatory 11-lbs “New York Trigger” on New York’s Finests’ Glock. If you can hit what you’re aiming at with that “revolver” like trigger pull whilst experiencing a full adrenal dump you’re a better man than I Gunga Din.
Hey, anyone seem The Incredibles?
