  1. Snerdlie needs to be more accurate . . .he mentions the NYC cop killing a child but gets the age wrong (by half ). . .Snerdlie suggests the cop, Thomas Shea, shot a ‘5 year old’ Clifford Glover for no reason. This incident took place in 1973 . . .

    Clifford Glover was a 10-year-old black boy who was shot by Thomas Shea, a white on-duty, undercover policeman. His death, and the policeman’s later acquittal, led to riots in the South Jamaica section of Queens, New York.[1]
    At 5 am on April 28, 1973, 10-year-old Clifford Glover was shot when he and his stepfather were stopped by two undercover officers, Thomas Shea, and his partner Walter Scott. The two officers believed the boy and his stepfather were guilty of robbery.[1][2] Glover and his stepfather were afraid of the two officers and ran from them, believing they themselves were about to be robbed.[1]
    Shea testified that he drew fire on the boy who appeared to have a weapon. Glover was hit by at least two bullets.[2] When Glover was hit, the officers claimed his father took the alleged weapon from him, which was never recovered.[1] According to Scott the boy told him “Fuck you, you’re not taking me”.[3]
