Alleged Butt-Grabber Shot Near His Own Butt

22-year-old Jacob Sanford was shot in the lower back by an off duty police officer yesterday during a struggle at a subway station in Harlem. The New York Post reports Sanford is alleged to have grabbed two teenagers' rear ends at the D line stop at West 125th Street and St. Nicholas Avenue. The off duty cop was having a conversation when he heard yells for police assistance and confronted Sanford.

Sanford allegedly groped an 18-year-old woman and a 13-year-old girl who was with her mother. The former pointed out her assailant to the officer. What happened next could be considered karmic retribution. Could be:

The cop identified himself to Sanford and ordered him to the floor, placing the suspect's arm behind him, police said.

Witnesses told cops that they then saw Sanford pick up the officer as if he was going to flip or body-slam him, cops said. Both the express and local train arrived, and at this point the cop believed he would be tossed onto the tracks, officials said.

During the tussle, the off-duty cop's gun went off, and Sanford was struck in the lower back, cops said.

Sanford was taken to Harlem Hospital and is in stable condition. He was charged with forcible touching, sexual abuse and endangering the welfare of a child.

I've read that the suspect has a  long criminal record.  He was still out running loose, though, and committing crimes which can cause real trauma for the people he assaults.  I can understand the arguments against life sentences for chronic offenders, since that might encourage them to eliminate witnesses by murdering their victims.  Still, it's a cruel absurdity that someone like him can't be controlled.  Even if he is convicted and receives the maximum sentence, someday he'll do the same thing all over again.
