Third Person Arrested In Yesterday’s NYPD Cop Shooting, Shooter Posted Anti-Cop Screeds On Instagram


We reported earlier that two had been arrested in the shooting, but now a third has also reportedly been arrested.

Jason Polanco, pictured above, apparently shot the two officers while they were frisking his buddy, Joshua Kemp. Both had just robbed a store when the anti-crime officers arrived to investigate the robbery. Polanco ducked into a Chinese restaurant, but the officers found Kemp and were frisking him. Then Polanco came and shot at them, wounding both officers and his partner in crime.

Although Polanco had been involved in the immediate prior robbery, Polanco also appeared to harbor some animosity toward police. He had previously published an anti-cop Instagram:

He also complained of an encounter with police purportedly about three months ago, specifically mentioning Ferguson and saying he would not tolerate any brutality, that he might therefore get “clipped”:

He took Michael Brown’s death “personal”, he said, reiterating inaccurate information about the event he had heard from media [although he didn’t take Brown’s death personally enough to apparently know how to spell Brown’s name correctly]:

He quoted Tupac and spoke of “same way they empty a full mag on us, empty a couple on them”.
