Cop Shoots & Kills Unarmed Driver In Alleged Act Of Road Rage

Chris | InformationLiberation

Man cuts off cop in unmarked van, cop shoots man with his hands on the wheel "at all times."

An unarmed man was shot and killed by a New York police detective early Thursday after the man had been pulled over by two police cars in Queens, N.Y., authorities said.

Noel Polanco, 22, was on his way home to Corona, N.Y., from his job at the Ice Lounge in Astoria Thursday morning when he was shot at about 5:15 a.m. He had offered a ride to a colleague, bartender Diana Deferrari, and another woman, who was an off-duty police officer, according to law enforcement sources. All three lived in the same part of Queens.

As they headed home on the Grand Central Parkway near LaGuardia Airport, Polanco was pulled over after cutting off what turned out to be an unmarked police van.

When Polanco stopped the car, a detective approached the vehicle and asked him to show his hands, according to police.

Police said Polanco reached under his seat and appeared to grab for a yellow electric power drill with a black handle.

That's when the detective, Hassan Hamdy, 39, a 14-year veteran assigned to the Emergency Service Unit, fired a single shot through the passenger-side window and hit Polanco in the stomach. He was taken to New York Hospital Queens, where he was pronounced dead less than an hour later.

Passenger claims incident was police 'road rage'

Sources said the detective may have thought Polanco was reaching for a gun. But Deferrari, who was sitting in the front passenger seat, said his hands were on the steering wheel "at all times" and that the officers were angry when they pulled him over.

"This was an act of road rage by the police because my friend cut him off, cut off the police," she told reporters Thursday. "The police proceeded to chase us, sticking their middle finger at us and screaming obscenities at the car."

No gun was recovered from the car.

The off-duty police officer in the car, who was in the backseat, told investigators she was asleep when the shooting happened.

Polanco's mother, Cecelia Reyes, said she demands justice for her son.

"They're just gonna take my son like that ... like he's some kind of criminal ... 22 years old, never got in trouble. I want justice for my son," sobbed Reyes. "I'm not gonna let his memory stay like this. He was not a bad kid."

Polanco served in the U.S. Army for four years, enlisting in April 2008. He was assigned to the 1156th Engineer Company headquartered in Kingston, N.Y.

"He actually joined the Army because he wanted to be a cop," said Noel De La Rosa, a friend of Polanco. "He said, 'Why don't I do this for a couple of years, and then I'll join the force.'"
It's amazing the disparities in the two stories. Perhaps they'll send his mother a bill for the bullet.

68255 According to some other sources, this driver has cut off not one but two police vans, and did it not once but twice. The officers had all reasons to consider this as assault, and to fear for their precious lives, so their handling the situation was proper.

(this is my prognosis on the result of the "internal investigation")

64134 This is the reason I carry dash-mounted video cameras with me in my car at all times. Once they see they are being recorded (even the ones hopped-up on steroids, which is most of them), it begins to trickle into their primitive brains that they might not be able to lie their way out of it if there is a digital record of it.
Some cops, though - (luckily I've not run into one of these) seem to believe they can murder with impunity (and do anything else they please).
Steroid testing 1x/month should be mandatory for all cops on the street.
Psychological testing needs to weed out the psychopaths.
