The black thug who gunned down a veteran NYPD officer is no stranger to jail, and should have been there months before the shooting
African-American career criminal Lamont Pride was already wanted in connection to a Greensboro, North Carolina shooting in August 2011. After the incident, he fled to New York. Recently, he was busted in Gravesend, Brooklyn, for drug possession and child endangerment. Pride has a rap sheet dating back to 2006, a record speckled with mostly drug and robbery charges. Pride, 27, now faces murder charges after his arrest shortly after the Brooklyn shooting. Officer Peter Figoski, who could have retired two years ago with a full pension, was pronounced dead in hospital, hours after he was shot in the face responding to a break-in.
