Warning, the video you are about to see is graphic in nature…. Former New York Giants running back Jermaine Green was shot by Daytona Beach police while he was holding his girlfriend hostage according to the New York Daily News. Green, 32, was shot in his home at least four times in the leg and once in the stomach. He has since recovered and is being held without bond. “At the end of the day I am proud of those officers. They deserve to be commended,” said former Philadelphia and current Daytona Beach Police Chief Mike Chitwood. The footage released by Wesh.com, is graphic and shows officers responding to the scene, gathering some information, kicking the door down, and encountering Green in a back bedroom. Officer Richard Maher’s body camera shows Green holding his girlfriend at knife point in the doorway of a bedroom, then pulling her back, falling onto the bed with her on top of him. Officer Kevin Connelly’s camera picks up repeat warnings to Green — commands to drop the weapon that Green ignores. “Let her go, dude. Let her go let her go, man,” the officers are heard saying. “I’m telling you right now.” “They saved that woman’s life. Even in her interview, she admits that she thought he was going to kill her. She thought Jermaine Green was going to kill her that night,” said Chitwood. Green had the knife to girlfriend Katrina Johnson’s throat. He lowered it to her chest, ready to stab her. Chitwood said the Florida Department of Law Enforcement has already examined the video. “They broke it down frame by frame, and there’s a point in there where you can actually see the knife start to bend because he’s pushing with that much force into her chest,” he said.

1 Comment:
  • Chitwood wasn't a Philly chief. He was the chief in the Darby Yeadon area. VERY different job descriptions. Philly has about 1.6 million citizens, Darby/Yeadon has fewer than 50K.

Terrell Thomas, who was the NFC defensive player of the week two weeks ago, was waiting in the slant route. “It was a route they have run a lot and I was waiting on it the whole game,” Thomas said. “They run two-by-two slants and coach put us in a great position and I was […]

Victor Cruz calls it a race to nine

Once upon a time, the G-Men won the Super Bowl with a 9-7 record. Not only that, but they LOST five of their last right games. Maybe it's a cop out to bing this up everytime the Giants are struggling, but it's something to think about when encouragement is needed. The 2013 Giants have am opportunity to be a special team. One for the ages. Victor...

Victor Cruz probable Sunday vs. the Raiders

Yesterday, Victor Cruz was channeling his inner "David Carr" by wearing a red #8 jersey during practice. Not because he was scout team QB, but because he was a limited participant in practice. But today, per Giants beat writer Art Stapleton Victor Cruz probable, Brandon Jacobs doubtful, Trumaine McBride questionable and Corey Webster out for Sunday...

Victor Cruz Sees The NFC East As A Race To Nine Wins

I like Victor Cruz’s assessment of the situation, but that would also require the G-Men to win out the rest of the way. The Giants are 2-6 after the bye week, and face the somewhat unrealistic burden of trying to make a playoff off, while seemingly out of it. The NFC East is likely the worst division in football this season, and because of that, it allows the Giants some hope....

New York Giants: Big Blue Continue Winning Ways Over Raiders

The New York Giants started the 2nd half of the season with an opportunity to make a statement against an Oakland Raiders team that is winless in their last 11 away games to the east coast.  The stage was set and the Giants didn’t disappoint the Giant fans as they defeated the Oakland Raiders 24-20. It wasn’t pretty, but the Giants did what they had to do and remain 2 games...

Week 10 Whiparound

So much for easing Andre Brown back into action. Tom Coughlin took advantage of Brown’s fresh legs to the tune of 30 carries and a bonus reception en route to 119 combo yards and a touchdown. At 3.8 yards per carry, the Giants probably thought they were watching a Hall of Famer at work compared to what they’d seen to this point. I was hesitant to recommend Brown for fantasy lineups...
