Peter Liang

Former NYPD officer Peter Liang was found guilty Thursday in the shooting death of an unarmed black man in the stairwell of a Brooklyn housing project.

Liang was fired from the police force immediately after his conviction in State Supreme Court in Brooklyn.

Akai Gurley, 28, was shot by a ricocheting bullet fired from Liang's pistol as he walked down the stairs with his girlfriend.

The rookie officer was also found guilty of official misconduct for refusing to help Gurley as he lay bleeding to death.

Liang and his partner were conducting a "vertical patrol" in the Louis H. Pink Houses housing project on Nov. 20, 2014.

Liang previously said he opened a door to the darkened stairwell and his gun went off. The bullet ricocheted off a wall and hit Gurley in the chest, piercing his heart.

Gurley's girlfriend, Melissa Butler, testified that Liang paused briefly while she performed CPR on Gurley on the 5th floor landing. She said Liang then proceeded down the stairs without offering assistance.

Liang testified on the witness stand that he didn't perform CPR on Gurley because he received poor training at the police academy.

The prosecution introduced into evidence audio of Liang's radio call to police dispatch. The radio call showed the officer did not request an ambulance.

He faces up to 15 years in prison on the 2nd degree manslaughter charge.

Gurley is survived by 2 young daughters.

    So the Asian officer gets found guilty but every single white officer walks free (with our without video evidence). SMH

  • ShelbyMoore

    Good thing a lying pig is off the streets.

  • SummerBaby

    Good to see a guilty verdict. Hopefully he will serve prison time. RIP??

  • the guest

    Speak. I noticed that too. They let him know he may not be black, but he sure ain't white.

  • nucynu25

    They be forgetting white pp only care abt white ppl ...

  • Renee26

    I would like to hear that audio

  • the guest

    He'll have a lot of time for meditating over the next 15 years. Check the mala beads on his left wrist. If he's a practicing Buddhist, he knew better than to not show a dying man compassion.

  • Di Ana

    Asian people consider themselves privileged like Caucasian people. This is a slap in their face that their not. Same with that Asian that was rapping all those black women in Chicago.

  • http://Copblock.org aDingoDrankMyBabies

    #Scapegoat The NYPD threw this Asian cop under the bus to show cops get convicted too? I would feel sorry for this man considering those who told him he was a God, and that he had the power of the badge on his side abandoned him...But, instead of trying to save the life of the man you just accidentally shot, you call your union rep and ask him to activate your cop-ly super powers of law evasion? Surprise Sunyi, you are Asian and thus expendable?? We'll see how the sentencing goes? The fact that he was fired only after being found guilty? Man. This country's laws are in need of a serious overhaul?? I see conservative bloggers *cough cough* are running the conviction story?? Seeeeee, cops do get convicted. I'm not fooled, look between the lines people??

    And white people don't like Asians. Some white men like Asian women. But white people don't like Asian people.

  • Str8tUpMenace

    Finally!!!! A cop is convicted, but he damn sure won't do a lot of time. SMH

    It was also reported that Liang picked up the casing to try to cover up the fact that his gun went off, til he realized Gurley was shot.

    Deep.

  • Str8tUpMenace

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^COSIGN THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • GuestSTAR

    Pretty much.

  • the guest

    Like I said down thread. White people don't like Asian people.

  • Str8tUpMenace

    They swear they can sit with the YTs, til they realize that their asses ain't YT

  • Vonn

    Wow. This jerk didn't assist with CPR or request an ambulance...He is truly a pos.

  • Di Ana

    I live here in NYC and sadly it is apparent that this is only a job for these officers and they couldn't care less about protecting the neighborhoods they serve because they are not from there. A lot of them venture out from the Island (Nassau and Suffolk). We need to get our own black folks to take care of one another or this butchering is not going to stop.

  • SandrasNewFave

    Whoomp there it is!

  • Str8tUpMenace

    His sentence can range from 5 to 15. I doubt he'll do 15. Honestly, I would be surprised if he even does 1 full year.

  • CaliYoruba

    I'm starting to notice a pattern of the cops who are actually charged and indicted...

  • jussaying

    which part of bk? they are gentrifying the mess out of bedstuy and prospect park.. all those places. doesn't surprise me that theyre still shooting up black folk. probably trying to clean it up for clear folks smh.

  • jussaying

    the yts that like asian women have eroticized them and sexualized them into some weird fantasy where asian women are 'subservient,' etc.

  • stopthebs

    you asian fkkk did he think he was going to get white privilege...throw away the key

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Yasss!!

  • GuestSTAR

    I grew up in Oakland and although the white cops are shooting and killing us in the streets like dogs, black cops are just as bad, especially in the hood. They harass and pull over folks based on color as well.

  • BLOODBLOOD

    Well that's 2 for us 9999999 for them

  • Str8tUpMenace

    He thought he had YT and blue privilege.

  • Str8tUpMenace

    They sure do. Some of em are worse than the YT cops

  • sunni_daze

    Right shade wrong race.This has become pattern in NY.

  • It’s Taurus Season

    Good. Sad he wont see much actual prison time though

  • Str8tUpMenace

    I doubt he'll even do a year

  • 88

    This is evidence of The System Of Racism White Supremacy right here. On the surface it appears the black man had no weapon but he did the weapon is his genitals.

  • Keesh5000

    Welllllllll

  • 88

    That's because they have been ''trained'' to do so.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    DEAD @ "Surprise Sunyi" ????

    Not totally yt and rookies? :thinks:

  • nucynu25

    White ppl don't like nobody but white ppl . It's crazy that they invent all of these cancers & sickness but deny an absolute truth abt science which is they are a genetic mutation ..

  • LeBrick James

    I think that's a direct effect and result of the BlackLivesMatter movement.

  • 88

    Can you blame him look at what happens to black ppl on a daily basis, GENOCIDE.

  • iWasteTime

    The Asian cop this week, the Hispanic cop last week, that East Indian cop is going to get it in FL too but still not on YT cop.

  • Yoni

    And Asians don't like NOBODY.

  • LeBrick James

    And a lot of Asian woman play that role too, to snag themselves a white man, who they see as a "prize".

    I read that something like 30% of all Asian-American women end up marrying white men.

  • SG

    And don't!

  • Str8tUpMenace

    And those are usually the ones that are prejudiced against blacks. I had to tell a lil prejudice Indian woman that she was just as black as I am, and them YTs consider her ass a damn monkey and a n!gg3r too.

  • Nonya Bizness

    If you're going to generalize and say yt people don't like asian peope, you might as well generalize and say Asians don't like yt people, and Black people don't like yt people. Don't act like it's just one race supposedly not liking anyone but their race, because if that was the case, there would be no interracial relationships, and friendships would all be segregated by race.

  • the guest

    Thats exactly what I meant. Only like the women, not Asians as human beings. Sick how white men objectify them.

  • SameoleJ

    EXACTLY!! When the man was found dead without a weapon, his azz should have been deep frying chicken in his father's corner store, immediately!! But with all the backlash and the fact that more and more people are waking up, they needed to throw him out with last week's trash. ONLY SOME COPS GET CONVICTED. Their message is clear: For every 50 of y'all we kill only 1 of us may get convicted and the chance of doing real time is slim to none. We'll even kill your babies and make them the bad guy and won't even say we are sorry.

  • mel

    While this is a victory let's wait for sentencing to rejoice. Remember Bryan Conroy was found guilty of criminally negligent homicide in NYC. He faced 15yrs....he received 5 yrs probation and lost his job.

    Throw the book at him!

    I think u are taking it too literal..of course all white ppl don't hate us . But let's not act like the system which is ran by whites doesn't try it's best to destroy blk lives .

    Good job there next let's see the sentence. Continued prayers for his family.

  • nucynu25

    Hey boo..:)

  • PettyEyezPrime

    This has been on my mind since it happened. He NOT yt. I expected for him to go down. Justice was served, I guess. His partner got immunity in exchange for his testimony??

  • Smartypants

    I'm so over these dramatic court photos. What's upsetting me is that they kill with impunity and don't think a court will find them in the wrong. They really think they'll be absolved when the victim is Black. RIP Akai.

  • PettyEyezPrime

    His girlfriend was on news this morning with the lawyer. Prayers to all involved.

  • SameoleJ

    It is the courts' fault that they think this, as they keep letting them off with a slap on the wrist or a stern talking to.

  • AllmylifeIhadtofight

    Aye somebody come get me when the subject change to something like Kanye recent twittuh rant

  • Str8tUpMenace

    The only time a YT cop gets convicted is if the victim isn't Black or YT trash

  • Str8tUpMenace

    I need Kenya (Kanye) needs to take a fawkin Midol for PMS. So sick of his ass.

  • AllmylifeIhadtofight

    LOL... Hunni Midol might not be strong enough he need a muscle relaxer or something to chill him all the way out.

  • PettyEyezPrime

    They stressed the fact that he was a former cop SO MANY TIMES THIS MORNING. This conviction means nothing until time is served. Real time. Behind bars. Not house arrest or probation. Better be years too. #doubtful

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Do you know what he said about Taylor Swift?

  • felinelurker

    Hunni, I thought that too (them being subservient) until I joined the military. I've met/seen so many asian women (Korean in particular) that were so bossy towards their husbands. And no this is not a generalization of all asians :)

  • LeBrick James

    Good news I guess... but sorry, I'm not all that impressed.

    For every 1 that gets convicted, another 100 get away with it.

    I can believe that. Messing with America's Sweetheart was almost career suicide last time, so I wouldn't think he would purposefully get out of pocket with her again. Clearly her bro still wasn't here for it!

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    So true! And they are so ugly for me!

  • Mel

    It was reported that he called his union rep or whatever before he could even call 911 sir even if it went off "accidently " they will make an example outta you I guess guilty verdicts come back when goat faced sharpton isn't involved .The family told his arse stay far away from them with his shenanigans

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Hmmm..Kinda like RayJ did his girl. #shade

  • 1/8

    New York police officers are not required to perform CPR. The officer was probably cited for failure to act, because he didn't request an ambulance.

    In addition, if the patient was shot in the heart and experienced trauma/traumatic arrest, CPR would have been futile.

    The survival rate for a patient with Gurley's injuries is so low, that if he had made it to the hospital, the hospital probably wouldn't have wasted its resources operating on him.

  • nucynu25

    Nope , Taylor was already famous bc of talent . Kim ain't even talented at taking dik ...

  • Blaque Mahogany

    What is your education/employment background?

    I dont eem like -0.25%. But. This is true actually. They are required to be certified ONE time. At the academy. Re-certification is highly recommended. But not tracked. And are not required to administer it ever. Not just NYPD. Most cities PD

    I know I'm an unpopular rose, but I try to be as accurate as possible when I comment on Sandra's articles.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I usually don't engage for obvious reasons but...

    Yes. They are not required by law. There's a difference between legal responsibility and internal policy requirements. They are trained to provide CPR and failure to provide CPR alone, has led to several officers being reprimanded.

    He was shot in the chest. Had you bothered to read...

    I'm assuming that it would have been a waste of resources simply because he is black. The comment is asinine but I know how you roll. Black life is a waste unless it confines to your idea of worthiness.

    In my original statement, I mentioned the fact that he was shot in the heart. Obviously, I was aware of the nature of his injuries.

    My comments about the hospital wasting its resources has nothing to do with race. The decision to operate on a patient is determined by the nature, severity, and survival rate of the patient's injuries.

    Hey Stinky McStinkums!!

  • SameoleJ

    I work in a hospital in the cardiac surgery department and even patients who are NOT considered "viable" based your list still have surgery, CPR, or other life saving measures performed on them in an attempt to save them. Even EMT's perform life saving techniques in route to the hospital, so even if he did not wish to do CPR,, he should have requested emergency help.

  • SameoleJ

    And your second sentence says it all.

  • SameoleJ

    Uhn Uhn, you have already agreed with one of his comments and now you are asking him to come with you to another post!! Let me check your temperature, you aren't coming down with Listeria or Zika are you?

  • Noirluv45

    I heard he was on the phone with the police union right after the shooting. I'm glad they threw him in prison. He deserves a much longer sentence.

    He left the man on the floor to bleed to death? Why didn't he call the ambulance ? So many questions.

  • 1/8

    My comments are specific to TCA (traumatic cardiac arrest). The survival rate for those patients is less than 6% and with every passing minute, the survival rate further declines. In cases where hypovolemia is a factor, CPR can worsen the patient's condition.

  • HelloToni

    Wait wait so the officer and his girlfriend work together? How did she know what the office did in the stairwell?

  • Luvn_it

    About time I got a feeling though if he was white he would've walked. Only other cop I seen found guilty was the 1 from Oklahoma, who also happened not to be white.

  • SameoleJ

    That is not what you statement said. you said they wouldn't operate based on certain factors and that is not always the case. Yes, it is case by case, but after a series of tests and medical review a surgery is determined. Either way if he had made it to the hospital they would have used their resources to save him, as they took an oath. I have seen a 90 year old woman who required an emergency AVR/MVR undergo surgery and now she skis on a regular basis.

  • Greg: Less hate, more love.

    Exactly, they're using him as a scapegoat.

  • 1/8

    Here's a direct quote from my initial statement:

    "In addition, if the patient was shot in the heart and experienced trauma/traumatic arrest, CPR would have been futile."

    My assessment of this situation has always been based on the premise that the patient suffered traumatic cardiac arrest.

  • ArDnAhC45

    Poor excuse by him saying "poor training at the police academy." I have taken BLS/CPR and the instructor has said the chest compressions is better than no chest compressions

  • SameoleJ

    "My comments about the hospital wasting its resources has nothing to do with race. The decision to operate on a patient is determined by the nature, severity, and survival rate of the patient's injuries."

    If he had made it to the hospital, they would have attempted to save him, even if it meant an emergency surgery. Had the EMT arrived, they would have attempted to save him.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    I saw this on the news the other day. Smh.

  • 1/8

    They would have attempted to save him in the ER, but the decision to take him in to surgery is a different matter.

  • smartchickfl

    Exactly... Not everyone is going to feel comfortable putting their mouths on a stranger's(I wouldn't either unless there was a barrier), but the least he could've done was the compressions. Absolutely no accountability.

  • the guest

    Yes they do! And look where it gets them. And they get surgery on their eyes too.

    Now there are some Asians who won't have isht to do with white people at all.

  • smartchickfl

    Thanks:)

  • Hmmm~?

    Pretty sure CPR isn't going to do much good if a bullet has pierced your heart.

  • Hmmm~?

    They're not trying to be become white. They're trying to fit the Asian centric ideal of beauty, which is large eyes, light skin, small compact faces, etc. I watched a whole documentary on it. They want to look like them k-pop stars, not like whites. Based on what I've heard, Asians aren't too fond of whites. Especially the Chinese. They hate LITERALLY everyone.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    He didn't know that a bullet pierced Akai's heart. Only the coroner knew that. The cop didn't even attempt to render aid.

  • the guest

    Thank you for this post. I've known Asians who have no interest in knowing white people outside of work. I agree that they are trying to attain Asian k-pop ideal but there are Asians whom are obsessed with the European ideal and those obsessed with an Afro Asian cultural standard.

  • raysorbladeczar

    That's because he threw the police union under the bus (he lacked adequate training from the academy) that was his fatality then! Smh!

  • EbonyLolita

    It can also range from PROBATION. Let's see what Judge Chun decides.

  • EbonyLolita

    No, he is an f'up! He had his finger on the trigger, along with the flashlight in the other hand. He pushed through the door and he let off a shot that ricocheted into Akai. He was RECKLESS & NEGLIGENT. Off to jail he goes. I was there for the majority of the testimony. He didn't render aid to Akai, argued about who was going to call the Sgt over the PHONE instead of the radio. Instead of seeing where his bullet went, he worried about himself. I just pray he doesn't commit suicide b/c I will be there at his sentencing in April.

  • EbonyLolita

    No he went looking for the casing & the bullet. As he went down to search for it he heard "noises." He fired the shot on the 8th flr. Akai was found on the 5th flr. His GF was attempting CPR after getting directions from her neighbor who had 911 on her phone.

    This is NOT TRUE! According to nypd's patrolman's guide they must render reasonable Aid. ALL Cops are trained in CPR and must pass it before graduating from the Academy. Liang & his parter, Landau, testified that they were given the answers & questions to the CPR test. Landau said he did not have an opportunity to work on a CPR dummy. Please don't come up here spitting falsehoods. I was there for ALL the testimony and heard it with my ears & saw w/my eyes!

    Well the autopsy photo that I SAW IN COURT it was 1/2 an inch near his sternum. See... ppl always trying to SOUND right but aren't right. His shot was fatal but Liang AND Landau did NOTHING. Not even call it in over the radio for an EMS. The ME said that he would have lived for 3 minutes but that was no excuse for them not doing anything. NONE!

    This is WRONG! They qualify in the Academy and are recertified yearly.

    I got immunity for testifying. He's a POS and the department fired him the same day the verdict came out.

    A company policy isn't the same as a state law. New York police officers are NOT required BY LAW to perform CPR.

    Furthermore, please define REASONABLE AID. Reasonable aid means different things to different people.

    According to what you just said, I was right and the medical examiner agreed with my assessment of the severity of Gurley's injuries. Once that bullet pierced his heart, death was imminent and his chances of survival were slim to none.

    Furthermore, I NEVER said the officers shouldn't have tried to help Gurley. I said they weren't obligated by law to perform CPR. I also said that if the officers had administered CPR, not only would it have not made much difference, it probably would have exacerbated the situation.

    When I'm wrong, I have no problem admitting my mistakes. I suggest you learn to do the same.

    Police training protocols differ between each police department. For many departments CPR is required, but for others it may only be suggested

    "NYPD officers are given CPR training at the Academy. But CPR certifications are only good for two years, and they’re not necessarily required to recertify. But to re-certify takes time, and takes police off patrols, and costs money."

    See below. Here in my city it's not required either. My old boss, her husband is a trainer at our Academy.

    No definitely, I know he's guilty, but if he was white, he would have gotten off. That's why I said he was a scapegoat, they're trying to pretend like this can happen, and justice will be served
