SMH: NYC One-Time Kills Emmanuel “I’m Ready To Kill Cops” Paulino, Protest Planned This Afternoon

- By Bossip Staff

This story sounds crazy:

A protest was planned for Monday afternoon following a controversial police-involved shooting prompted by a 9-1-1 call from the man who was ultimately gunned down. Police confronted a knife-wielding Emmanuel Paulino Sunday morning at 121-123 Vermilyea Ave. in the Inwood section of Manhattan shortly after he made the call.

This is a transcript of that call:
Operator: 911 Operator, where is your emergency?
Suspect: Yeah, I want you to call the cops cause I’m ready to kill.
Operator: What?
Suspect: I’m ready to kill some cops right now.
Operator: You’re ready to kill some cops?

Police said the four responding officers saw Paulino with a knife, identified themselves and told him to drop it. When he didn’t, one of the officers used his Taser, but Paulino pulled the electrical prongs from his body and continued to charge at the police officers, police said. The officers fired, hitting Paulino several times. Paulino, 24, was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said.

Some neighbors and relatives said police overreacted. Activists were also upset the NYPD released audio from the 9-1-1 call before a full investigation had been conducted. Fernando Mateo, the president of Hispanics Across America, held a vigil Sunday night in front of Paulino’s home.

“We believe that with all the technology and all the training the finest police department in the world has, it could have been prevented, it could have been handled differently,” Mateo said. In 2008, an emotionally disturbed Brooklyn man plummeted headfirst to his death from a building ledge when police stunned him with a Taser. The police commander who ordered an officer to fire the stun gun later committed suicide after apologizing to the victim’s family.

After the man’s death, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly ordered refresher training for the NYPD’s Emergency Service Unit on how to deal with the mentally ill.

SMH. Yeah they certainly need to handle these situations in a more ‘professional’ manner. Although Emmanuel was calling up 911 saying he was “ready to kill some cops” (SMH), there’s no way he was going to be able to do so with that lil black knife he was holding. If they ‘felt the need’ to shoot him with a real gun, they could’ve just shot him in the arm or leg or something and taken him into custody. Craziness. R.I.P.

    He stated his intentions verbally AND by charging police with a deadly weapon. Police attempted to use non-lethal force with the taser, which was ineffective.

    It kills me how every time the police do something to a minority, there is a big to-do made about it. Yes, sometimes they’re wrong, but it appears that in this case they were right. If this had been a white dude this wouldn’t even be on this site.

      @ YOUR LOVE, HOW COME EVERYTIME SOMEONE DEFENDS SOMETHING THEY HAVE TO BE WHITE? n_satiable has a point. the guy threatned the police, and they did use non-lethal force. He was wrong for what he did, just because he is mexican, doesnt excuse his actions.ppl need to start acknowledging wrong. stop using race as an excuse wrong is wrong regardless of race.

  • MissPerfect

    Are you kidding me he clearly is sick and we have alot of sick people wondering the streets unforunately the police are justified in this case he wanted to injury a cop These people who are protesting need to shut there traps because if this kid was to go killing and harming a innocent person then they would blame the cops !

    “Activists were also upset the NYPD released audio from the 9-1-1 call before a full investigation had been conducted”

    ^^^LMAO Of course they’re upset…upset that the recording showed his true colors and made him look like a psycho killer while giving the cops the right to kill his animalistic butt in the street.Nobody is mad but a couple Hispanics who feel like “If it happened to one of us, then it happened to all of us” NEXT.

    If you got a gun and a person got a knife AND YOU ARE A COP, not a civilian – you can’t aim to wound?

  • BLACK WOMEN HAVE HIV/AIDS MORE THAN WHITE AND HISPANIC COMBINED

    Black people STFU and stop blaming white people for your problems.

    Black people are lazy, hypocritical and uncivilized.

    This is coming from a black person, always blaming white people when something bad happens just like you idiots want to pray all of a sudden when something bad happens.

    Black people sicken me~

    RIP to the young man

  • shynum1

    Can’t believe the comments I’m reading right now. Let’s forget about race for a second here. Clearly the man was mentally ill, the officers (with an “S” meaning more than one) tried using the stun gun but it didn’t work. So they murdered him because he was coming at them with a knife. These officers are “supposed ” to be trained on how to deal with these types of situations. Why did they shoot to kill? The guy is already out numbered by the officers, so why take his life? Regardless of his race, he was someone child…

    I’m a New Yorker myself and I’ve seen a lot of crazy things happen, but, actually, this IS a Justified Shooting. He has a transcript stating he is waiting to kill some cops. When cops show up, he is brandishing a Deadly Weapon. They gave him a Verbal Warning that he didn’t adhere to, so, a taser was used. He pulled off that Taser prong and started to come towards an officer with the knife. In Law/ Military Enforcement Training, Last Resort IS Deadly Force.

    this guy was my age too

    Exactly knicksfan! Yes, they can keep on saying that the cops have on Bulletproof Vests, but, that’s the ONLY Place that’s covered on a cop. What if that cop got stabbed in the jugular of the neck or the axiliary in the armpits (For all those who didn’t listen in Biology, they are called Arterial Veins.) If stabbed in a Major Arterial Vein, you can bleed to death. The killing was Justified like I said.

  • Dyckman

    By the way thats name even him in the picture so why don’t ya take that down and respect by putting the right picture of him up

  • Candid Canuck

    listen to Dead Prez’s first album… song police state… as well… think about it.. in NYC you threaten the “establishment” you are killed instantly. sound like 1984 to me.

  • Sick

    This site is so crappy, they have two different pictures of the guy on the same story.
    This guy you are showing here is not the emmanuel Paulino that was killed, this kid is Colombian and he is a college graduate. He should suit your a$$ for doing this!
