"We are outraged that current police protocol would ever allow something like this to happen," Culosi, 63, said last night. "The fact is that there was zero basis whatsoever for the officers involved to have any weapons drawn in this situation."
Culosi added: "Sal was alone and unarmed. He was compliant with police instructions. He made no threatening movements or gestures. There was no risk of harm to anyone. Anyone, that is, except Sal."
Wow, I am so relieved the cops took care of this small-time sports bettor. We all know that optometry and gambling on football are a lethal combination for society. Three cheers for SWAT and the militarization of our civilian police forces!
