"An NYPD sergeant fatally shot a troubled 66-year-old woman who charged at him with a baseball bat in her Bronx apartment Tuesday evening, leading the officer to be placed on modified duty -- and ­local officials calling for a full investigation. ... Ed Mullins, president of the Sergeants Benevolent Assocation, however, was furious that the sergeant was placed on modified duty. 'This is a totally legal shooting,' he said. 'Chief [of Patrol Terence] Monahan is politically pandering, sending the wrong message to officers by throwing this sergeant . . . under the bus.' Mullins said the department was second-guessing Barry for not using a Taser and that the woman was a threat." (10/19/16)
