East Harlem Shooting: Cell Phone Footage  

A civilian gassing his car at a gas station in East Harlem captures the moment when retired NYPD Lieutenant Thomas Barnes shot and killed Rudolph Wyatt after a botched pharmacy robbery. Wyatt was shot once in the cheek and once in the base of the skull after opening fire at NYPD officers who were approaching the pharmacy. Wyatt, a Bloods gang member with a lengthy rap sheet, was pronounced dead at the scene while his accomplice is still at large.

  • Everyday there are blacks getting killed like this and no one gives a shit. Certainly not Al and Jesse.

    But poor little Trayvon, he's the most important black victim since probably OJ and he MUST GET JUSTICE or there will be hell to pay! Forget that the vast majority of blacks are still living in violent, ghetto shitholes and forget that black children are becoming thugs and criminals at seemingly earlier ages than ever. Yep all that doesn't matter one damn bit to blacks. Glad to see these peop More..

  • You guys should watch the other video from the NYPD surveliance cam from a near bye project building. The guy came running out of store waving his gun and that blond female cop turns her back and runs like fuck.

    Very good job by the retired cop. He scored 2 head shots on a moving target.

  • Where is Al Sharpton, where in the hell is Mr. (I open my big mouth before I know all the facts) obama? This guy was probably innocent and he was killed simply because he was black. Isn't that right Al? Good one less welfare rat.

  • The very first guy you see in this vid, the one ducking off to the right while reaching into his waistband, is the retired cop who shot that POS dead.

      Violent criminal Ghetto Monster Thugs stopped in the midst of their violent crimes by means of lethal force dispensed by innocent armed civilians.

      They are the same. Scumbag = Scumbag

      Of course, we don't yet know if "Booga" was in possession of stolen Skittles and Arizona Iced Tea.

    • @Oswald2001 So you know for a fact that Trayvon was a violent thug?

      The guy in this video was knowingly attempting to steal drugs, carrying a weapon and shooting at an officer.

      Trayvon was, for all we know, walking down the street and approached by zimmerman. Maybe he fought zimmerman I have no fucking clue, I have my doubts but that doesnt matter. He was followed by a strange man who did not identify himself and he was not carrying a weapon.

      To say that Trayvon is as bad as this guy is r More..

      "Booga" was being followed by men he didn't know.

      And Trayvon was not the 'angel' they would lead you to believe.

      Look at his recent photos and tats.

    • @Oswald2001 I don't think Trayvon was an "angel", I just don't believe he did anything that warranted him being shot.

  • The other video shows a better angle. The retired cop who shot this guy scored a neck and head shot from about 40ft - great shooting. As to the dead guy, all I can say is getting shot in the base of the skull couldn't happen to a more deserving person.

  • The failure of black-led states is stunning: the latest - the US. But the US is still strong enough to absorb some of the worst things coming from the obama white house.

    Look at haiti - what a sad place. Look at africa - a continent loaded with immense wealth and potential, but it seems all the time there are stories about coups, genocides, starvation, AIDS, etc. Mostly the euros who had colonies there tried to set up democracies before they left - most soon crumbled into dictatorship.

    • @copilot1111111 The answer to your statement is found in your own comment; they "tried to set up democracies BEFORE they left". You can't set up a functional democracy the year before you leave, especially when your racist policies have made it impossible for Africans to hold positions within the domestic institutions. If these people have no experience or proper education to run government institutions, let alone democratic ones, how do you expect them to function properly? The system More..

    • @suicidebob OK, fine, but Why not admit the Truth? - The TRUTH is that DEMOCRACY is a fine lady but she likes her kitchen clean otherwise she wonn't cook you a meal.
      In other words, it's a highly specialized system that won't work with most of the peoples of Africa and Near East.
      Why not admit the TRUTH that different races perceive TRUTH differently and that what is "good" for an estonian national is not always good for a Sub Saharan Black and vice versa?
