Those holsters must be banned to protect innocent citizens.
Either that or perhaps they could make the commission of a crime a criminal act punishable by punishment.
Here is the lowdown on the Snatch-grab-and murder:
In the predawn hours of Aug. 9, police officers were flagged down regarding a dispute at the A&M Deli at 230 East 198th Street in New York City. During the ensuing incident, as detailed by NYPD Assistant Chief Larry Nikunen, Efraim Guzman, 30, was able to remove an officer’s gun from the holster and shoot a bodega worker he had previously been in a dispute with across the street. Shot by officers twice, Guzman was taken to St. Barnabas Hospital.Oh - Did anyone mention that the Innocent and hard working convenience store operator is dead? Dead at the hands of a criminal.
“Obviously we are going to review all the tactics involved. But looking at the video, Mr. Guzman made a very fast move and basically ripped the gun from the officer’s holster,” said Nikunen.
