NYPD Cop whose Son was Killed by Fellow Cops Demands External Investigation

An NYPD police officer whose son was killed by fellow cops is demanding an external investigation into the shooting.

New York City police officer Maria Hernandez apparently does not trust an internal investigation just as drunk cops never agree to take a breathalyzer. They know better.

“This has to be fully investigated by an outside source ’cause it makes no sense,’” NYPD officer Maria Hernandez told the New York Post. “Did they even try to tase him?”

The incident took place Wednesday when police were called to an apartment building in Harlem about a naked man with a gun in the hallway terrorizing a resident by banging on her door and breaking glass.

Victor Hernandez, 29, was the superintendent of the building and had no history of mental illness, his mother said. But police say he had been arrested twice before this year for domestic violence.

Police say the naked man came charging at NYPD police officer Christopher Wintermute, punching him several times by other officers before he was gunned down.

Wintermute was also shot in the chest but was saved by his bulletproof vest. Police said he was shot by Hernandez but there was initial speculation that it could have been fired by one of the other seven officers on the scene, the New York Post reported.

But Hernandez’s parents are naturally grief-stricken.

“He was a hard working [sic] great father of two children,” she wrote. “Who worked hard full time and did side jobs to raise his children and went to Lehman college after work.

“He paid his taxes and was a good citizen.”

The mom couldn’t offer any insight into what prompted her son’s apparent break early Wednesday.

“He [sic] only run in with the police were domestic no drugs or gun charges,” she wrote. “No mental history. He was a good man and the world is a darker place without his bright light.”

His father, Tomas Hernandez, added via text of his son, “I would rather have him in jail fighting a case than dead.”

Meanwhile, Wintermute, 34, was released from the hospital to applause from fellow cops, the New York Post reported. Maria Hernandez is a 14-year veteran of the department and works out of the Bronx.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
