    NYPD's new breath test rule for on-duty shooting incidents being challenged by the union

    A sobriety test that all cops are required to take after shooting someone is "unconstitutional" and "violates the NYPD's own rules," according to a lawsuit filed yesterday by three law-enforcement unions.
    The requirement has been in place since last month and comes after Sean Bell, 23, and his friends Trent Benefield, 24, and Joseph Guzman, 31, were hit in a hail of 50 police bullets in November 2006, killing Bell and wounding the others.
    At the time, several cops had been working undercover in the club and were drinking in order to blend in with the crowd.
    The Detectives Benevolent Association - along with unions representing sergeants and lieutenants - filed suit in Manhattan federal court, asking a judge to place an injunction on the use of mandatory Breathalyzers.

    Or dont' get involved, and just fire to protect yourself, and your family, not the random civilian getting stabbed.

    I truly do not see what the problem is! I submitted to blood tests for mine. Better to cover your butt before the civil litigations start and accusations start that are difficult to argue three or four years down the road. It is call CYA!!
    Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence.
