  • FF allegedly beats NYPD officer

    NEW YORK (AP) - A firefighter who saw his ex-girlfriend in a
    police officer's car beat the officer so badly he suffered a brain
    hemorrhage, prosecutors said Thursday.
    Sean Murray, a two-year veteran of Ladder Company 140 in Queens,
    was charged with assault in the beating of Ahmad Kessba on
    Wednesday night, when both were off duty, District Attorney Richard
    Brown said.
    Kessba, 24, was dropping off Murray's former girlfriend at her
    Ridgewood home when the firefighter, who had been waiting outside,
    approached him and ordered him out of his car, prosecutors said.
    When Kessba identified himself as a police officer and reached
    for his badge, Murray, 28, yanked him out of his car, threw him to
    the ground and beat and kicked him repeatedly, they said.
    The terrified ex-girlfriend locked the car doors and called 911.
    Murray continued to choke Kessba and bang his head against the
    pavement after the officer was knocked unconscious, prosecutors
    said.
    "The defendant's actions were unprovoked and resulted in
    serious injuries to the police officer," Brown said.
    Besides the brain hemorrhage, Kessba suffered other injuries to
    his head and body.
    Murray, who lives in Hicksville, N.Y., had not been arraigned as
    of Thursday night. The district attorney's office didn't have
    information about a lawyer for him, and the firefighters' union
    didn't immediately return a telephone message seeking comment.
    A fire department spokesman said he wasn't authorized to speak
    about Murray's case.
    Murray could face up to 25 years in prison if convicted.

    excerpt from NY Daily News article on same incident

    "Murray, who was suspended by the FDNY, has a criminal record with convictions in New York for disorderly conduct and drunken driving and an arrest in Virginia for reckless speeding, authorities said. At least one bust came after he joined the FDNY two years ago, officials said."

      Didn't we see this on Rescue Me not too long ago?
      "This thread is being closed as it is off-topic and not related to the fire industry." - Isn't that what the Off Duty forum was for?

            I dont get where the "allegedly" part comes in? Sounds like there is no question he did it.

                I am not the judge, but if you read the news story there was a witness - he didnt receive head trauma by falling out of a parked car.

                Doesnt seem to be any question as to what happened - now its up to the judicial system to take its course.

                Maybe you care to eloborate why you would get any other impression(providing its accurate)from the story?

                Then again maybe you dont.

                  I think what nyckftbl is stating is that we should not pass judgement on a fellow brother untill the court of law has. If anything you have learned in the fire service is that you don't believe everything you read in the papers.

                    I cant elaborate, because I WASNT THERE, AND NEITHER WERE YOU!

                        The witness is always questionable. However, the FACTS don't lie. The medical evidence will be important. If a person is CONVICTED of assaulting a police officer or pleads to a deal, they should do hard time. No one should assault a police officer. I hope that the NYPD officer has a speedy recovery.

                        Notice I didn't attack the brother. Merely stated my opinion about the situation. The courts will settle this. The alleged assailant's family, firehouse, and the FDNY will have to deal to this for many months to come. One news outlet already dubbed this "The Battle of the Badges."

                          If the "alleged" moron is guilty, fire him, send him to jail, and give someone deserving of the position a chance.

                          "Should" this all be true, it sounds like this guy is a real peach, and needs to grow up and act like a man.

                            Everyone knows the NY press bends the truth and sometimes just prints outright lies.

                            There are at least three sides to this story...inlcuding one which states the officer attacked the fireman first.

                            I'm not defending this guy or castigating him...I'm just willing to wait a little longer for the real facts to be discovered in a court of law.
