Cops cheer officer charged with killing unarmed teen amid 'NYPD, KKK' chants

Just another case of charging a white cop in order to pander to the inner city welfare rat breeders.... Photo: NYPD Police Officer Richard Haste (center), the cop charged in the February shooting death of Ramarley Graham (right), surrenders on crutches at a Bronx courthouse.

A city cop charged with gunning down an unarmed Bronx teen pleaded innocent to manslaughter Wednesday morning as the victim’s shattered parents wept behind him.

Officer Richard Haste, who was on crutches, entered his plea in a quiet voice at a Bronx Criminal Court before posting $50,000 bail in the Feb. 2 shooting of Ramarley Graham, 18.

“Not guilty,” he declared — the only words Haste uttered during the hearing.

Haste, who faces up to 25 years in prison if convicted, left the courthouse to a mix of

cheering police officers and angry protesters riled by the killing.

“NYPD, KKK, how many kids did you kill today?” the demonstrators chanted at Haste, who climbed into a waiting black sedan and drove off.

The dead youth’s father, Frank Graham, wept in the courtroom with his wife Constance Malcolm and later broke down outside the courthouse.

“I keep asking, ‘Why? Why? Why did he kill my son?’” Graham said through sobs. “Eighteen years old. He did nothing to deserve this ... We won’t have him for Father’s Day.”

Haste dodged the crowd and reporters earlier by slipping into the courthouse through a side door for his arraignment.

“It's always difficult, but he's being very strong,” said defense attorney Stuart London, whose client is due back in court Sept. 13.

“He understands the seriousness of these charges and he also feels for the family and understands the tragic nature, that's there's a loss of life. He's nervous but confident.”

About 20 members of the Graham family and their friends made a dramatic courtroom entrance, gripping each other’s shoulders to form a human chain as they marched silently through the hallway.

“Jail the cops!” shouted protesters outside the courtroom. “Justice for Ramarley!”

“The family is grieving,” said the Rev. Al Sharpton after the hearing. “Nothing is going to bring their son back. This is the first step to getting justice, but there are no winners.”

Haste, a four-year NYPD veteran, was indicted on first — and second-degree manslaughter charges in the shooting, which took place in the apartment of Graham’s grandmother in Edenwald.

Prosecutor Donald Levin pointed the finger directly at Haste for the killing.

“Ramarley Graham was boxed in the bathroom,” said Levin. “He had nowhere to go ... Ramarley was looking at the barrel, the muzzle of the gun. Then Officer Haste consciously and deliberately pulled the trigger.”

Police officers in civilian clothes, along with Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association head Patrick Lynch, also appeared inside the courtroom.

Coppers, especially White Coppers:

it just AIN't worth it anymore. Why risk getting killed or going to prison over these savages? Don't chase these savages yourself, get proper backup, including Canine, if you do believe an offender is running and is armed with a firearm. Put it on the radio. Hold back till help arrives. If the offender gets away, so be it. YOU are alive and healthy, and there will always be more offenders to catch. Make your Agency provide you with what you need to catch these assholes, or just don't pursue recklessly and without proper backup, into a situation that can get you killed, paralyzed, injured, or thrown in prison, it simply is not worth it anymore. It is no longer the 70's, 80's, or even the 90's. Cameras and Video are everywhere. Don't get trick-bagged by any Agency you work for by being aggressive, and run into a Trick Bag Situation. You WILL be Crucified if ANYTHING goes wrong.
Please wise up if you haven't already. The days of the Macho-Cop are over. God Bless all Officers and stay safe out there. Help each other out and watch each others backs, whether on duty, off-duty, retired, disabled, or otherwise. United we stand, divided we fall. There are enough evil individuals out to get us, and we only have each other, so Stick Together !

Ramarley Graham voted for Obama, then asked him when Father's Day was.

As soon as the "victims" family gets that fat check all will be ok. Sending the cop to jail is just frosting on the cake for these low life mutant bastards.

1:23 PM- I for one think you cops do a really great job. I don't know how you are able to deal with the stress nowadays. I will be the first to admit that I would not have the balls to do what you guys do.

I am sure the man has six more. A black bun in the oven gets a raise in pay!

EBT for all!

I am laughing at the images of the dead crook on Irate Irshman's site. Fucker is seen doing pull ups on a cross walk sign! Monkey ass!

Blacks do that shit in NYC all the time for some fucking reason. Guess a gym membership costs money and does not take food stamps.
