Dramatic E. Harlem shoot-out captured on video - New York Post

A dramatic shootout in Harlem, NY ended when a retired NYPD
Lieutenant turned hedge fund driver sprang into action and opened fire
on a robber who had started firing at two female officers responding to
the scene.
Rudolph Wyatt, 23 and known by his street name “Booga,” was in the
process of holding up a drug store and demanding money and the pain
killers OxyContin and Percocet. At the time of the robbery, several
customers were in the store, including a baby in a stroller. An alert
manager hit the panic button, which summoned two female officers in a
patrol car and a male officer on foot. When the cops arrived, they were
able to coax one suspect (who has since escaped) out. That’s when Wyatt
came out gun blazing. And that’s when retired Lt. Thomas Barnes took
action.
“Part of the back of his head was missing. He had a large head wound
and there was tons of blood,” witness John Brecevich, 59, told the Post.
Wyatt was a member of the Bloods gang called “All About Money.” It
just so happens Barnes, the retired cop, spent years working in the gang
division in Brooklyn. Wyatt was wanted for shooting a 19-year-old in
Georgia six times (non-fatal) and for another May 2010 shooting in NYC.

  • if you took all the low income black people and put them on a island with the same wealth and items and told to build a utopia, a year later most would be dead and the rest would be selling the goods taken from the corpses of the ones they killed. other then a few black people i respect and like that i know that know how to live, the rest are animals, i see them daily in my job, and they all say the same fucking thing, oh im poor and nobody likes me......and you wonder why africa is so fucked up

    • @nowhereman1
      Since the whole Trayvon case in America surfaced, I've been doing my best to inform people of the killing of whites in South Africa. It's so plain and simple to see that white people are not the racists there. Even though they were the ones who built bridges, homes, infrastructure while the native Africans were still living in huts. Most blacks will tell you their safety and quality of life was a million times better under apartheid. Now the cost of basic food is so high because al More..

  • 11 prior arrests and he's still on the streets? WTF??!?! >_>

    Doesn't that tell police and the justice system that no matter how many times you get them off the streets, if and when they get out they'll do the exact same thing? In other words these blacks WILL NEVER CHANGE??

    They should really change the laws in the US and seriously crackdown on these ghetto thugs. Make it like basketball where if you get five serious offense arrests on your record within a 10 year period, instead of foul More..

  • Nice job Detective! Now, only if law abiding New Yorkers were allowed to arm themselves.

    Shut it Hippies! While you loathe it, it's a perfect example of when it's criminal to carry a gun, only criminals will carry them.

  • Great work for the retired officer. The perp that fled will be charged with murder when he is arrested as the death occurred in the act of committing a felony robbery.

  • An armed civilian took out another Trayvon Martin.

    Like he should have done.

    Will this guy be crucified like Zimmerman?

    Are we gonna be bombarded with photos of "Booga" as a smiling 10 year old in a football uniform?

    Is Obama gonna think that this violent criminal Ghetto Monster Thug looks like his son too?

      I have had vast experience with Ghetto Monster Thugs and their Ghetto Trash parents and Ghetto Trash supporters.

      It's NOT a mystery, it's NOT complicated and it's NOT unusual.

      You just need some real life experience with these types.

      This may involve you getting mugged, killed, raped, burglarized, vandalized, robbed, etc.

      When it costs YOU...you will cut the cr*p.
