    Quite frankly the story of a unverified poster is unbelievable...

    He then pointed his weapon, with his finger on the trigger, into the face of the man he grabbed out of the seat. He then turned and pointed it directly into my face. I screamed "HE'S GOT A GUN!!!" And everyone panicked. A conductor approached him and demanded "How dare you pull a gun on my train?!" Only then did he say he was a cop.
    Horse ****.

      Thing is something went wrong and the story we are getting from the news seems less credible then this person. I believe its believable for the simple fact that a LEO was arrested and their has to be a reason.

      The only thing is its from a unverified poster so it really means nothing.

        I could make up something equally believable and take bits from a story to make it sound legit. Doesn't mean it's true.

        One thing she failed to mention is what the MEN in her group of 4 did. There was talk of men, but never any mention of females in any of the articles.

        I admit the guy's mannerisms on the video are strange, like he's been popping pills all day. The fact that he admits what he did was wrong and that he got arrested on scene even as a LEO also means something probably went down. Lets see how it plays out in the courts.

                A Ronkonkoma-bound LIRR train descended into chaos when off-duty NYPD Officer David G. Hendrick pointed his loaded 9 mm Smith & Wesson handgun at drunk hockey fans he considered obnoxious, according to court papers filed in the felony case.

                Hendrick, 38, of Brentwood, was arrested Sunday night, a short time after brandishing the weapon aboard the 9:17 p.m. 8068 train on charges that include misdemeanor menacing and felony criminal weapon possession. He has pleaded not guilty and is due again in court Thursday. His lawyer, Steve Worth, did not return calls for comment Wednesday.

                Hendrick has said he was defending himself from the hockey fans, "letting them know who's boss" because the group was "out for blood" after he tried to stop them from cursing and smoking in front of an 8-year-old girl on the train.

                Accounts in court papers from a train conductor and a fare collector, the four hockey fans and even the 8-year-old's parents portray the now-suspended New York City cop as the aggressor who picked a fight long after the group quieted down.

                The girl's mother, Margaret Smith of East Islip, said in court papers that she had asked the four to stop cursing because her daughter could hear. The group promptly heeded her request and behaved themselves, she said.

                Smith said when Hendrick later reappeared in the car, he looked "agitated."

                In court papers, fare collector Sandra Byers said one of men in the group "blew him off" and "said something that set off the officer."

                "But it was not profane or disrespectful," she said.

                For the four hockey fans, the incident triggered fears of an imminent Colin Ferguson-type shooting aboard the train, said Larissa Snyder, one of the quartet involved in the altercation with Hendrick.

                "Nobody wants to see a gun on the train," Snyder, 24, of Sound Beach, said in an interview Wednesday. "I was staring down the barrel of a gun."

                According to court papers, Hendrick, unprovoked, grabbed one of the hockey fans, Snyder's boyfriend, Scott Cummings, of Miller Place, and wrestled with Cummings. Later, Hendrick put Cummings and another hockey fan, Michael Gubista, in a headlock, according to statements the 8-year-old's father, Keith Smith, gave to investigators

                Hendrick then backed up a couple feet and aimed the gun at the fans; Margaret Smith grabbed her daughter and ran to the opposite end of the train. With Hendrick's gun drawn, "The passengers in the car began ducking and screaming," Byers told investigators.

                Conductor Charles Ferris intervened, trying to physically shield his passengers from Hendrick and saying, "Who are you to pull a gun on my train?" Hendrick lowered the gun and said: "You don't know what's going on in this car. You are a conductor."

                  Now folks, how what do you say about that? Seems like this officer is clearly in the wrong with witnesses confessing now.

                    I don't think anyone said the Officer was in the right, but there are two sides, and then the truth.

                      If this Mos happens to keep his job after this entire debacle he is done. He will be put in viper or in the CJB, maybe down at MCB with the rest of the rubber gun squad

                        An interesting article about VIPER, it seems most of the PO's working there are on modified duty either for Criminal or Medical reasons.
