Tabloids React To NYPD Shooting Two Women Near Times Square By Writing About "Gangbangers" and "Drug Thugs"
On Saturday night, as you've likely heard, the NYPD tried to shoot a disturbed man as he was running in and out of traffic near the Port Authority. Instead, they hit two women standing nearby. Theodora Ray, 54, was hit twice in the leg; according to friends interviewed by CBS, she remained hospitalized at Bellevue Sunday night, recovering from surgery. Sahara Khoshakhlagh, 35, was grazed in the buttocks, treated, and released from Roosevelt Hospital Saturday night. Her husband told the New York Post they'd decided not to comment, leaving the Post to deal with their larger problem: how does a newspaper cover the NYPD's shooting of two random bystanders in the most flattering possible light?
