USA: NYPD undercover cop resigns as he struggles with grief from killing innocent man
The family is suing for 20 million. That could help pay for several of the WT child molesting lawsuits! The Police Commissioner hopes that the family finds comfort in their hope of a resurrection.
But it's refreshing to hear about a cop with a conscience.
Sad story all the way around.
DOC gave us a conclusion without knowing the facts or any analysis, but I keep an open mind to the scenario that DOC just suggested. An early retirement is attractive enough to make you actually believe that you are mentally incapacitated...to work.

City pays $1.1 million to family of man killed by NYPD cop's stray bullet while crossing Mount Vernon street
The city has agreed to pay $1.1 million to the family of an innocent bystander shot to death by an undercover NYPD cop during a sting operation went wrong, the Daily News has learned.
Felix Kumi’s widow agreed to the deal after filing a $20 million notice of claim against the city, accusing the cop and other police involved in the sting of negligence and violating NYPD policies. A notice of claim is the first step in suing the city.
Kumi, a 61-year-old school bus driver and father of three, was crossing a street in Mount Vernon at about 3:40 p.m. on Aug. 28, 2015, when he was shot in the torso by the officer. The devout Jehovah’s Witness who lived in the Westchester County city died nine hours later at Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx.
The undercover cop — a detective who was never publicly identified by the NYPD and has since resigned from the force — was purchasing an illegal gun in a parked car as part of the sting. But during the sale, the officer and the gun seller were held up, according to court papers filed with the notice of claim.
