An Emergency Service Unit detective and another cop were both struck in the leg around 12:30 a.m. at 3301 Nostrand...
Tommy Kubrick: Mad shootings lately, black people going HAM!
Michael Tierney: Jim Vandenberg: Is that illegal?
Tommy Kubrick: Jim Vandenberg how is this racist? i said black people were going ham son.
Scott P Joyce: Jim Vandenberg : Im sick to DEATH of hearing that word EVERYBODY IS RACIST to some degree , BEING RACIST IS NOT JUST A FU(KIN WHITE THING,,,,,
The Kenyan hopes the suspect pulls through...the Kenyan needs his vote in November.
James McBride: obammy injects himself in just about everything in the ' black community. ' I was pretty shocked when, yesterday--for some strange reason--obammy made some kind of speech before the airing of To Kill A Mockingbird. What's up with that? What's up with obammy and this deal in Sanford, Floridia? Then there was the ' beer summit ' when the cops ' acted with stupidity. 'Obammy made threats to the supreme court.... I could go on and on. Unfortunately with Romney very likely to get the GOP nomination I think obammy will be reelected in an unprecedented landslide victory. an you imagine the damage an untethered, lame duck obammy will do?
Brandon Boyle: Get well detectives.
Jim Vandenberg: The famous cop hater from the NYDN blog, Anacondaman, is cheering this.

Another NYU student acting up? Another well-balanced child from a good supportive family (with a mom and a dad) gone haywire? Suburban punks on a visit to Brooklyn? Nah. Just your typical inner city vermin doing what they do best. Destroy everyone's quality of life. They do it better than anyone (including mother nature). This one should cost us all a pretty penny. Between legal expenses, prison and whatever else these liberals care to provide "the poor suspect", this little episode should cost us several million at least. Now multiply that by hundreds and even thousands (just in NYC alone).
Can any of you think of something better to spend that kind of money on?
Tanya Villanueva: Education. So many cuts to education funding, but then that money is wasted elsewhere...
Tony Moschetti: Tanya Marie Martin: On which far planet do you reside. We spend more money on education than EVERY other country in the industrialized world, yet rank right near the bottom 25th or 26th, in every measurable achievenment category!
It is the many BILLIONS spent on miseducating our students, that is WASTED!
Tom Jesse: Tanya Marie Martin LMAO
section8section9: Tony Moschetti - No parents. No family structure. No discipline. No smart reasonably intelligent kids. Toss in a cornucopia of criminally minded politicians and watch the magic of how $1 in federal funds miraculously turns into .24 cents by the time it reaches a kid or even a school. Over one millions kids in the NYC public school system. Go ahead and do the math (that's of course if you went to private school to learn math).
Who on earth would deliberately want to keep the population stupid and poor? So that we can have repeated episodes of how uncivilized some people can actually be?
Terry Campany: Tanya Marie Martin what are you a nit wit,we had these same problems before they cut education.
jp.muggs: Yes, an electric chair, for starters.
Michael AuciBoy Auciello: How many people are you greg brady? acorn, debbie, bye bye, damm you have multiple personalities are you a in a nut house?
Tanya Villanueva: Terry Campany Just because we had these problems before education cuts doesn't mean that it's okay to waste money. Maybe we do spend more money on education than other places, but the money is MISSPENT. Also, I am not just referring to mandatory education. I am referring mainly to higher education. I prefer tax money go to that as opposed to housing and maintaining these cancers to society. Call me a nit wit or an alien or whatever you wish. Still not gonna change the fact that money is being wasted and could be better used elsewhere.
Tanya Villanueva: Tony Moschetti You know why? Too much money being misspent on BS and contracting out to the friends of the politicians. And in the meantime this money could be better used to provide services to children who need it--because ignoring a problem doesn't necessarily eliminate it. So yes, money is misspent in education, but it is also misspent when we maintain these burdens to society.
Tom Powers: Greg-more jails so savages like this can spend their worthless lives where they belong- in cages.
Anthony Fontana: This is a job for Super sharpton.....
mcdonald.frank62: Sharpton wont do anything since cops were shot and the shooter is white.
Anthony Fontana: mcdonald.frank62 good point
James McBride: awesome dogs. I have 2 rhodesian ridgebacks and 2 pitbulls ages 5, 4 and the hounds are bro and sis, 2 1/2. Never had a dog fight ever. No one is fixed--they're the best of friends.
Bill Dybdal: I'm sure the suspect was a respectable Scandinavian.
mcdonald.frank62: The shooter is Russian. Same block were the other Russian guy chopped up his roomate for a nice dinner with some fava beans and a dry chianti. The Nostrand houses are 3 blocks away. sorry, this be a YT crime.
Diane Stephan: mcdonald.frank62 Are you sure, Nakwon Foxworth? Doesn't sound Russian to me.
Call Me Crazy: Diane Stephan - Do tell: What does it sound like to you?
Diane Stephan: Call Me Crazy<< Sounds Stalker-ish/American, like you.
Bill Dybdal: mcdonald.frank62 Sounds like an eggplant
Morrissey John: Give the NYPD a raise.
Brandon Boyle: They should, but they won't, at least what they deserve.
Alexander Arcovio: more target practice,solve a lot of problems then they can use money for useful purpose not keeping this crumb alive.
Timothy Moynihan Sr: If the people do not need their guns, then the mayor does not need body guards.that seems fair to me.
Veda Robertozzi Moynihan: Happy Easter Dad & mom!!! Luv veda
Jonathan Borowski: Can't wait for the neighborhood to have a "Stop Police Violence" rally... The suspect, Nakwon is quite lucky to be alive right now. Wishing a quick recovery to the four officers; hopefully they're home today with their families.
Pete Whalen: they are still in the hospital actually, my dad who also works in ESU works with them and is still going to visit them tonight. Sucks to have Easter in a hospital room...
Anthony Catalano: Pete Whalen thank God it not a funeral room a hospital room is sweet.
Pete Whalen: Anthony Catalano exactly
Tony Moschetti: Did Bloomingidiotberg mean "protecting the Constitution," an anethma to liberals! It's your city you bleeping liberal midget, so you figure out to find the "illegal" guns, within the confines of that darned Constitution!
Ariza Ja: Forget all this bipartisan & racial garbage, I'm just happy that the officers are going to be okay. I'm glad to hear the woman and the child were rescued. Too bad they didn't put this nut out of his misery. For every bad cop out there, there are countless other heroes as well. Job well done gentlemen!
Tanya Villanueva: They should've put society out of its misery IMO...
Where are all these commenters on the Tulsa white-on-black shooting story? Conspicuous in their absence is where.
Tanya Villanueva: Most people choose to respond to what is convenient to their experience instead of calling wrong by its name wherever and whenver it presents itself.
Chris Bischof: Tanya Marie Martin -- the story in Tulsa is over. The killers were caught and now they're starting the process of going to trial, getting convicted and possibly executed if Oklahoma has the death penalty. There's no trend of whites shooting blacks. There's no social pathology arising in the white community. The Tulsa crime is newsworthy only for its rarity.
Gary Christensen: Tanya Marie Martin 2010 fbi extended statistics show
blacks =12.6 % of the population, but commit 50% of all murders.
are we to believe this is the result of slavery, 200 years and 10 generations ago? this is something the black community must deal with, before calling others racist.
Tanya Villanueva: Gary Christensen This is why I said what I said. and it doesn't just pertain to crime. It pertains to many aspects of life. I am a person who is going to call wrong by its name regardless of who is doing it. And honestly, more people should do that. If something is wrong, then its wrong. I think people (of ALL colors and ethnicities) get too caught up in those differences. Enough of it already. I am getting tired of it and I am not even 30 years old yet. We need to celebrate our differences (race, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual preference, size, social class etc) instead of using them for a reason to perpetuate hate. And that goes for ALL people. We are more alike than we realize. Look at what happened between England and Ireland. BOTH nations were predominantly white. And Rwanda in the 1990s? Those weren't white people chasing down black people and killing them. Just wanted to mention that... for both the racists and the race baiters... And no one has to agree with what I say either.
Tom Patton: So all the shootings were by criminals armed with "illegal" guns but Nanny Bloomberg wants to prevent Law-Abiding citizens from possessing Legal guns.....ummm, don't think that will lessen the number of Illegal guns...just sayin'.
Tanya Villanueva: I was waiting for someone to point this out.
Jake Perry: Tanya Marie Martin why didn't you just point it out yourself you wack job.
Tanya Villanueva: Jake Perry Seems to me like you're the wack job. Felt pretty good to point that out myself.
William Roth: I wonder if the taxpayers were covering his rent?
George Boyle Od: Where's sharpton, where's reverend what's his name, wheres the outrage ? I'm sure this young man was a honor student
William Roth: Al Sharpton is a government operative and his job is to incite racial strife. How else would a tax cheat and habitual criminal maintain a job on a major tv network and get a pass for refusing to pay his taxes. This is all a scam designed to turn one group again another. I do not know who Zimmerman is but he is not a white person so why this Trayvon incident is about white people is beyond me. I think Obama and Holder want to incite race riots as an excuse to disarm the people prior to the economy collapsing. Just my opinion.
Harry Bollas: These morons must have shot them self.
Rene Perez: ok there are robots that can enter the apartment, equiped wiith a stun gun and a shot gun, camera etc... why are they not using them? if they do, they wont get hurt duh...
This guy should have been deported back to Africa after his jail term was up.
Herbert West: Elite? ESU please! Poor tactics, poor training, and most likely lack of familiarity with firearms is what got these officers shot...
Tom Jesse: The communist black caucus--- I mean the congressional black caucus will demand a repeal of the 2nd Amendment, that way the rest of us will be at the mercy of the Nakwan's of the world. But don't worry, the cops will show up to write a report after your dead.
Debbie Bretschneider: Those are crazy weapons and ammo Foxworth had. God bless are brave NYPD who risk their lives everyday. Yes, give them a raise.
Allan Greenstein: How did this guy get 2 years in prison for attempted murder? Which "bleeding heart" judge only gave this asswipe 2 years? This time I hope he is taken off the streets for rest of his stinken evil rotten life. Thank goodness the NYPD officers are basically okay.
Tanya Villanueva: I always felt that attempted murder should carry the same weight as murder. Just because you didn't get the job done doesn't mean that you should get a pass.
Allan Greenstein: Tanya Marie Martin: Exactly. I couldn't have said it better!
Adam Sanchez: Where is rev. sharpton and all the police haters? not a peep condeming this guy from shooting at police for no reason.silence speaks volumes.4 cops shot and 8 in four months, that disgraceful.no wonder cops are a little paranoid about guns and people getting shot that don't have one.how about listening when they tell u to stop.that would prevent everything, thanks to these cops for protecting everyone including the cop haters.
Salah Ayubi: BUSHMUNCHER YOU ARE A STUPID A?, MORON..LIKE IT OR NOT OBAMA FOR PRESS YOU DUM A?
Diane Stephan: Speedy recovery to the Officers.
Marty Cohen: America is a weird place, If you have enough money you can buy the best, The have more's will be protected, The rest are left to fend for themselves. When will the right to bear arms be equal for all? Bloomberg has acted like a dictator who want to control what Americans can do , forget the constitution. I guess when you buy your own city you can do as you please with it.
Andy Colletta: Perp hit only once by 4 of NY finest @ 10 ft? I am glad they are all OK but back to the range guys!
Patrick Creeden: Have you ever been in a situation where someone is returning fire at you from the same distance? Neither have I, but I would imagine it is a lot more difficult and stressful than shooting at a paper target on a range.
Thomas Patrick Martyn: The guys name is Foxworth? Maybe after he recovers, he can do a stand up routine. Start off with "You know your a Brooklyn ex con if".
Don Iarussi: was shooter black? if so this is racist! this is what the lamestream media does, ignore a bounty on Zimmerman, ignore the fact that more blacks have killed blacks in the last 100 years than white people have killed blacks in a thousand years. apparently its okay for black on Asian, black on white crime! But if there is one racist incident vs a black man, even if not racist. White people must hang their head in shame for an entire race of people? I am sick and tired of wimpy left wing whiners. police are doing nothing about bounty on zimmerman.
Call Me Crazy: Donny baby, do you have a sheet with eyeholes for your little boy, too? He's too young to play with matches, but he can watch Daddy burn a cross from a safe distance.
Diane Marie: Thank God the brave officers were not killed. An Easter miracle.
Rene Delavarre: These police are my heroes, along with firemen, who lay their life on the line for us everyday, and hardly seem to get any respect. To hell with models, movie stars, rap stars, , rock stars, reality show stars, etc. They mean nothing when you compare them to what these cops and firemen do; men and woman who actually make a difference. Let the ex-con rot! Hope all the cops pull through.Happy Easter to all the brave men and women.
Brandon Boyle: I thought I was the only one that felt this way, thankfully I'm not.
Sonny DiStefano: Thanks Rene'!
Rene Delavarre: To all cops and firemen...you are America's greatest.
Carl Romano: 6 cops within 10 feet of this dirtbag and they could only hit him with one shot? In the abdomen? Apparently members of the "ELITE" Emergency Service Unit don't spend enough time at the shooting range. Glad the officers are OK but this could have ended much worse.
Patrick Creeden: At the shooting range you are firing at a paper target. You try doing it when there is someone less than ten feet from you firing away at you and let's see how you react under that pressure.
Brandon Boyle: You need to go to a tactical shooting range and see how easy it is to shoot at a moving object, then you will change your opinion on this, along with your comment. I have done it and it's not very easy to say the least.
NEWS FLASH TO RAY KELLY: The shoo ter had already broken the law by having stolen gu ns.....evactly what law would you put in place that he would have adherede to?
Eddie Rivera: Hope for a speedy recovery for the cops and Thank God none of them got killed. So I got from this story that if you have 3 weapons you have a Cache or Cadre? The Mayor continues to be an idiot, he wonders why people who are licensed to have a gun elsewhere bring theirs when they visit the city. So this man does 10yrs for robbery and selling drugs and only 2yrs for attempted murder. Why is not a bigger issue? Have to kill someone to get more time?
Badwan Light: "We will continue to do everything that we can take illegal weapons off our streets, but until Congress wakes up and finds some courage to stand up to the gun lobby, illegal guns will continue to end up in the hands of dangerous people like tonight’s shooter, who had a small arsenal of illegal guns."
I had no idea the "gun lobby" promoted access to illegal guns for dangerous people.
James Phillips: Trust the scumbag mayor to use this incident as a platform on which to promote his anti-gun ideology. As if gun control of any kind would have any effect whatsoever on the criminal ghetto scumbags getting their hands on weapons. If there was an outright ban on guns throughout the whole country, it would just create a huge market for guns smuggled from abroad. They'd be bringing Russian and Chinese firearms across the border along with all the weed and coke. Do these liberal idiots understand how utterly ineffective the war on drugs as been? What makes them think their war on guns will be any more effective? I'll tell you what - it's the liberal delusion of grandeur, which makes liberal politicians believe there isn't one single problem that they cannot solve by using their magical powers of elected office. Shame on Bloomberg for exploiting a horrible incident like this, he really needs to learn when to keep his big mouth shut.
Tanya Villanueva: He acts as if criminals in NYC are going to legally get a gun and then use it in a crime... One way or another, criminals are going to acquire their guns illegally.
Manny Fuentes: As the saying goes, if guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns. It's time for all the citizens to arm themselves and fight fire with fire.
Paul D'auria: only 2 years for attempted murder? shoot him again now, save a life down the road.
Jan van den Ende: Thank God they are going to be fine. It just goes to show you how easy it is for a criminal to get a gun. but a law abiding citizen cant get a gun permit to protect their selves.
Mike Boyd: This Elite Emergence Service Unit may need some retraining.
John Luke: Where is Al Sharpton? Really? Who cares. Who amongst you really wants him involved?
Johnny Q Twoshoes: Nakwon? sounds like he could like like the president`s son!
Nick Blue: Why no pictures of the suspect? Is it because four white officers were shot by a black? funny how there is no problem showing the white suspects in the shootings in tulsa?
Lenny Maz: Im confused like you???? Gee,any photo of the wife and kid who he held captive?
Burt Biggins: Read about 3 comments, why should I read some of this garbage? I rather just go somewhere else. Bye
Bill L Dobbs: Nakwon? Bet yo ass he's not white! What ever, This puke should be laid out cold..Bloomdog your stupid..Corner this dog up and your ass is dead..Gun, knife Sling shot, stick..what ever! Teach your boy's how to shoot a dam gun! (JUST SAYING)
Scott P Joyce: If the cops would have killed this mutt , Sharpton and his lapdog would have made it look like he was an innocent black collage kid minding is own business on his way back from the store to get skittels....
Derek Brown: "Nakwon Foxworth... who served 10 years for robbery and selling drugs in prison – was hit once in the abdomen... He is listed in critical but stable condition at Kings County Hospital."
The cops must've run out of bullets. By all rights this worthless piece of slime should be pushing up daisies.
Justin Pecora: I hope the piece of $HIT stays in critical, suffers some more and then had to do life.
Lenny Maz: Hey Bloomberg,,,, hope the cops were not shot by Eric Holders AK-47's because then you will have to squash this case.
Lenny Maz: Gee, no photo of the perp?
Lenny Maz: Sharpton was heard saying "so what if he was selling guns, at least he had a job".
