    bullets.  That was about 2 miles from my home, on a city street, surrounded by apartments and businesses.  There is a reason they have strict gun laws within city limits, because people live, work, commute, and play, right on top of each other.  Indeed, there were a couple of ricochets that actually broke through the AirTrain office (the train line that goes to JFK Airport) windows.

    Don't these officers know that there might've been some white folks walking by, and maybe waiting for the AirTrain??
    (I have given up on trying to convince them of the value of the life of a black citizen).

    Buy Aldus Shrugged : The Antidote to Ayn Rand, and tear Ayn and the GOP new orifices. Plus, I get a small royalty, and Jeff Bezos and his employees get the rest. Not a bad deal, as CEO Bezos is not much of a dick, relatively speaking. @floydbluealdus1
