NYPD Officer Indicted in Shooting of Akai Gurley

NYPD Officer Peter Liang, who shot an unarmed Brooklyn man to death in November by firing his gun up a dark stairwell in a housing project, was indicted on Tuesday, according to reports.

A formal announcement by District Attorney Kenneth Thompson is expected to be made Wednesday. It was unclear Tuesday afternoon if charges would include manslaughter.

For some reason, the thought popped into my mind of the line from an old poem: "I shot an arrow into the air, where it lands I do not care."
* It seems that a lot of arrows are shot into the air, not only by the NYPD, but across the nation and across the world.
* I think the fascists need to have their bows taken away.
