Every unit that was on the scene and every unit in Bklyn. & Manhattan that blocked off an intersection joined in after the lead cars and the bus passed that intersection. That's the way it should be.

I definitely agree that blocking intersections and having the lead cars is very appropriate.  However the huge convoy after the bus is completely uncalled for and creates a dangerous situation especially how far spaced they were!

It is an NYPD member........ they are taking care of their own just as they would do for FDNY....also the response to the hosp initially has to do w/blood donors on standby if needed.

I've been around long enough to fully understand the situation and their concern....but, I counted 41 vehicles hauling tail, lights & siren.  Where do they park, and what do they all do once they get to the hospital, except stand around. Any needed blood comes from the hospital supply. Hopefully no civilian was hit or t-boned. Why risk adding more grief to an already sad situation.

A cop was shot in the head. 41 or 141 vehicles, it's thier business. And I'm sure those driving the vehicles are using due caution. As for where they park-- how about where ever they want.  And when they get to the hospital, if they don't have a responsibility or are awaiting one, I'm sure they are there to support the police officer shot in the head and his family.

Apparently you work at the hospital too, because you know the level of the blood supply they have.

Police taking care of their own.  Should not be second-guessed.

By the way, the asshole who shot this cop had 14 prior arrests and was wanted for another killing:
