All in a day's work...

The NYPD has an arguably well-known reputation for being a bit trigger happy. Literally. So I found this article note-worthy for two things:

1. Does the police routinely just fly around in a helicopter looking for crime?
2. The description of them "trading punches with the crook" before apprehending him in chest-high water was a welcome change and a little comical-sounding. They could just have easily unloaded a couple of hundred rounds at him first. So kudos on displaying restraint.

Or is the lack of lethality due to the fact that this was the Queens PD and not Manhattan?
