    started a topic "Yeah, I'm ready to kill cops right now"

    "Yeah, I'm ready to kill cops right now"

    A knife-wielding man with a death wish who called 911 ranting "I'm ready to kill some cops" was gunned down by police in front of his upper Manhattan home early Sunday.

    Emmanuel Paulino, 24, shrugged off the Taser darts that cops first used outside his Inwood apartment building and lunged at officers, who fired at least nine times, killing him, police said.

    "This is suicide by cop," a police source said last night.

    In a transcript of the 911 call that set off the deadly early-morning confrontation, Paulino implored an operator to send police to his Vermilyea Ave. address.

    "I'm ready to kill some cops right now," he told an operator.

    The operator asked, "What's going on there?" Paulino repeated, "Yeah, I'm ready to kill cops right now" and demanded, "Okay, yeah, get 'em. ... I'll be right here."

    Officers from the 34th Precinct showed up at Paulino's apartment building at 5:37 a.m. and found him in front brandishing a 4-inch knife.

    "They're initially backing off," the source said of the responding cops. "He [Paulino] keeps coming, and he's saying, 'Shoot me in the head,' [or] words to that effect."

    A police sergeant hit him with a Taser gun, but Paulino pulled the dartlike electrodes from his chest and kept charging, the source said.

    "The darts went into him," another police source said. "He's being shocked at the time, and he pulls the darts out [and] continued toward the officers with the knife."

    Two officers opened fire on Paulino with their guns as relatives and friends pleaded with him to drop the knife.

    Paulino died at New York-Presbyterian Hospital Columbia. Police said the deadly shooting appeared to be justified.

    Friends and relatives defended Paulino as harmless and accused the police of killing him for no reason.

    "He was shot because of excessive force," said Alex Candelario, 27, a cousin. "He was a good kid, a humble guy. He didn't deserve this."

    Friends said Paulino was unemployed and on anti-depressant medication.

    Adding to the chaos was another 911 call simultaneously made by neighbors complaining of a rowdy party on Vermilyea Ave. near W. 207th St.

    It was unclear if the two incidents were related.

    At least six cops from the 34thPrecinct responded to the 911 calls, sources said.

    "People were yelling in the streets and being crazy," said neighbor Jose Lopez, 38. "There's drugs and parties here every weekend."

    Elisabeth Rodriguez, 28, said she was awakened by noise in the street and saw the standoff through the window of her first-floor apartment. "He [Paulino] was getting angrier and pacing around," she said. "He was walking in circles, not lunging."

    Police said at least nine civilian witnesses backed up their account.

    Paulino, who lived with his mother and sisters, was imprisoned after pleading guilty last year to importing heroin, and freed from prison in March, records show. The court recommended mental-health treatment for him in prison.

    Inwood man shot, killed by cops was hit with Taser - but yanked it out: cops


    Shockingly, the family feels the officers used excessive force. "He was a good kid", and on the news was saying that the cops didn't have to kill him, he wasn't a threat....just cause he called 911 and threatened to kill cops, had a knife, resisted arrest and advanced on officers don't make him a bad guy, right??

    More than likely one of the probes failed to have a good connection to skin/tissue, meaning the electrical circuit wasn't completed. This would be like a nine volt battery jolt. Tickled, maybe even stung a bit, but can easily be overcome.

    Various central nervous stimulants effect the ability of the taser to work its magic. I had one with a good spread that it did not phase. I discussed it with him last week after about a year since it happened. He said he was on PCP and felt his body tensing but no pain and was easily able to pull them out. He then ran off into the night... I was able to function when I was hit in the training. I am not saying I liked it but I stayed up and was able to control my hands. I never want a part of the thing again.

    Im kind of curious- any LEO's on here seen people defeat a taser?

    Yes. Hell, they practice ways to do it in prison. Then again, like any tactic or less lethal, tasers work best when the person isn't expecting it/doesn't see the deployment. Catches them off guard and doesn't give them the chance to try to defeat it.

    I do feel for you. Like I said in my earlier post most of the media is liberal and personal responsibility is not a something they like. I do watch some news, I get most of my news off the net. I know for a fact the media will slant the news their way and don't give all the info. The police felt this man was a threat and seeing he pulled the taser things out of his body makes me think he was on some drug and was a threat. When I am not there I don't pass judgement.

    Can we pass a rule where people who say stuff that stupid can get slapped around?
    I am so sick of hearing that.

    I don't know if you all remember when the DC police killed a 14 year old boy that was on a stolen mini bike. There are some questionable things about the shooting but the officers were cleared. The stepmother of the child works in housekeeping where I work, she was ranting about how " he was a good kid and didn't do no wrong he was murdered, he didn't have no gun, he didn't take no bike, they lied." They gave the media a photo of the boy that made him look like a cute sweet child. I spoke to a DC cop one day, he told me the kid was a suspect in a murder.

    Lets go forward 14 or so months. One of her husbands other many children was shot getting on a Metro bus, freaked out the bus driver, he just closed the door and took off with the dead guy on the steps of the bus. The guy just left a funeral of a guy that was suspected of killing, he left before the funeral was over. I guess he saw who he needed to see and someone was there to see him when he left. He was just another boy that was a good kid but he was never the same after his baby brother was murdered by the evil police.

    I am sure there will be another one of his wonderful children in the news when they get shot or arrested for murder. I recall he has something like 16 children, non by the woman that works in my building.

    Not as large a portion of the public as you think. By the way, IMO a large portion of the public views media as a sham. I can almost guarantee you that the reporters talked to a witness who said the officers did what they had to do. No quote from those people. Apparently that doesn't sell papers.

    Roger Murtaugh: See how easy that was? Boom, still alive. Now we question him. You know why we question him? Because I got him in the leg. I didn't shoot him full of holes or try to jump off a building with him.


    Martin Riggs: Hey, that's no fair. The building guy lived.

    On the plus side, it sounds like there's a lot of witnesses that back the police officers on the scene.
