Police Commish James O’Neill Fails: Sells Out Police Officer Before Investigation in Shooting of Mentally Ill Bronx Woman

Story here

Very bad job done by new NYC Police Commissioner James O'Neill that will have a negative ripple effect throughout the NYPD. 
He decided to throw Sergeant Hugh Barry to the wolves who was involved in a controversial shooting in which a mentally ill Bronx woman was killed.  The woman, 66 year old Deborah Danner, was menacing residents in her apartment residence with a knife and a baseball bat.  The facts of the case are not well known except for news reports.  But, that's not a full investigation.  And O'Neil should have reserved judgment until all the details are known.
