NEW YORK — The suspect jailed for murder in the friendly-fire death of a Queens detective claims the tragedy began with an ill-conceived stab at comedy.
Self-proclaimed “shock-value comic” Christopher Ransom, 27, told the New York Daily News in a jailhouse interview that his alleged Feb. 12 robbery attempt at a T-Mobile store was actually a phony holdup videotaped by a pal and meant to get laughs online.
“It was a prank gone horribly wrong,” Ransom said in the Rikers Island interview. “I never meant to hurt anyone or rob anyone … I feel bad for the detective’s family and I hope the sergeant recovers soon.”
42 shots fired, the suspect was hit only 8 times, but they managed to kill one of their own cops and wound another.
Fucking NYPD….. they’re still in more danger of getting killed by their own than they are criminals.
