Unarmed man goes on shooting rampage
It's the title of this piece, by Mark Stein. NYC police open fire on an unarmed mentally ill person. They miss him but hit two bystanders. So the DA charges the person they tried to shoot with aggravated assault, on the theory that his conduct caused the officers to shoot the bystanders. As Stein concludes, "If this flies in New York, then there is no law." Which probably means it will fly.
