Cops fatally shot a knife-wielding man in broad daylight near Times Square Saturday after chasing him down Seventh Avenue from 44th Street to 37th Street.andThe madman, a 30-year-old male, had lunged at officers, who told him to drop the knife. When he refused to let go of the weapon, they pepper-sprayed him. When he wouldn’t go down, at least one cop fired in plain sight of shocked witnesses, sources said.
Today the New York Times made Chipotle's burritos a little less zesty for New York's Finest by reporting that the chain's downtown Brooklyn location near the courthouse gives officers a 50% discount as a courtesy, a deal they're barred by department rules from accepting.but..cops didn't appear to be receiving any special discounts during the restaurant's lunch rush today, not that they'd accept them anyway. "I make $140,000," one NYPD officer of over 20 years told us. "Do you really think I'm going to jeopardize my integrity for a sandwich?"

A lot of them take it."
That's how much money a NYPD officer makes ?(20 year experience, but still GOD DAMN)
