  • NYPD Lt. that ordered taser of mentally unstable man is found dead...

    NEW YORK - A New York Police Department official says a lieutenant is dead of an apparent suicide, days after he ordered another officer to fire a stun gun at a naked, distraught man who then fell to his death.

    The police official says the lieutenant was found at Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn early Thursday, dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. It wasn't clear when he died.

    The official spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the family had not yet been notified.

    The lieutenant had ordered another officer to shock Inman Morales, who fell nearly 10 feet to his death in Brooklyn.

    The lieutenant was stripped of his gun and badge after the incident last week, and Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly ordered refresher training on how to deal with emotionally disturbed people.

    RIP Lou.

    Suicide is a major problem in law enforcement. To get punished when your heart is in the right place, and you make a split second decision just takes its toll on alot of good officers.

        The city was pretty much ready to throw him under the bus.

            When the public needs help, they call the police. When the police need help, they call ESU.

              Yes he did, they live out here on the Island ( the poor guy couldnt even water his lawn without a camera in his face.) may he rest in peace , my only question in all this ,is does his family still receive his pension ?

                      From what I've seen, NYPD command was ready to feed him to the wolves. Another case of too much politics, too much civilian involvement in police work. And now a brother officer is dead.

                          He might...back in the 90's when Capt. Terry Tunnock (XO of Central Park and a true gentleman) committed suicide because of rumors he was going to be thrown under the bus from the Dirty 30 scandal, it was apparently so his family would get his pension.

                          I've been gone from NYPD 10 years, but I remember something about once you hit 20 years, if you die (by any means) the Dept. processed your retirement for the day before...something like that. I may be completely wrong though, or things might have changed.

                              very very sad. I cannot believe that cops are still "pushed" to commit suicide by the media/establishment.

                              My thoughts to the family.

                              Nobody is talking anymore about the PO who actually shoot the EDP. anybody has some news about him/what is going to happen to him?
