    Garbage site… Seriously bad wording.

    The incredibly dishonest wording here is something that one should only expect from law enforcement at this point–the officer mentioned in this article may have been “shot and killed”, but the perpetrator was *herself* after the intended victim of her shooting spree escaped unharmed.

      How do u know she shot herself

      • Kile Onasi

        It’s linked in the article to the NY Daily News site. You could also look it up for yourself. Her name was Keisha Brown and she worked for Queensboro Correctional Facility

    we MUST be politically correct and not say what we really mean .but pander to the wishes of those who would “cut us off” if we don’t say what THEY want to hear

      Who is “THEY”? Are you really so upset that people would rather you know the facts of a situation before you start foaming at the mouth and hoping someone who doesn’t exist is killed? Get a grip.

      Who is “him”? The officer shot and killed herself.
