    Oh, I have so got to hear the rest of this story.

    I can't see a crook reaching over a stall door to grab a jacket unless he knew it was there. Maybe followed the cop or something and just guessed he would hang the jacket on the stall door hook?

    But, lets say the crook guessed that. I can see a crook who knew the jacket was there grabbing and tugging at it, until it went bang the first time. But, who tugs again after the first bang? !?!?!

    This I gotta hear.

    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    It's December in upstate New York...I'm a Florida boy born and raised, and I'd bet my bottom dollar that someone droppin a deuce in a stall in a public bathroom has a coat on the coat hanger on the stall door...and they are going to have a serious hygienic and moral dilemma when deciding to give chase or not

    But yeah I'd love to hear how this gun magically went off by itself.

    yeah, guns don't do this ... cop should have thought of a better STORY

    Officials say someone reached over the door and tried to grab his jacket, with the gun inside. Police say the gun fired twice, with both bullets hitting the ceiling. No one was injured.

    In a crapper eh? Isn't all NYC a huge crapper? That's right ... I said it .. NYC stinks


    The NYPD will do nothing about this guy ... likely give him a medal for being creative !

    I think he saw an evil hand puppet coming over the top, got scared and pulled off a couple of rounds

    Wow!!! Wish I could train mine to spew a couple of rounds when someone tries to steal it. Must have taken this cop a long time.

    That gun was pathetic, though. Any self-respecting, properly trained gun would at least shoot the thief in the hand.

    Mere bullets would not have sufficed: If you recall, only the "Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch" was able to smite the rabbit.

    That brings back memories.

    I am guessing that the mysterious coat grabber was not caught, and there is nothing to back up the officers story. If his supervisors buy that story I have some bridges for sale here in NC.

    This I gotta hear.

    I don't even see how a tug will make a gun fire from a coat pocket (twice).

    Unless the officer had one of those automatic trigger pullers in his coat pocket along with the firearm.

    They do make automatic trigger pullers that you put in your pocket in order to fire when your coat is tugged on, right?

    How else can a gun, inside a pocket fire? (twice)

    Never play with your gun in a public bathroom, or tap your feet...

    My best guess is he hung the pistol on the coat hook and put the coat over it. When he went to retrieve the coat and gun he pushed the trigger against the hook. It probably fired the second time from recoil. That would explain the holes in the ceiling, a auto hung on a hook or rod will hang with the muzzle pointing up.

    This makes a lot more sense.

    I wonder if there is hallway security video that does not show a running jacket thief.

    He musta got out through a heating duct...crafty devil.

    Or the cop is a big fat liar ... and he should go to the toilet on his own time - I think he spends 7 hrs everyday on the can just waiting for his fat pension

    No fair bashing the cop for being overweight.

    Odd, I never thought that weight had anything to do with being called a "big, fat liar"...

    Sorry to those "big, thin liars" I guess
