Daily Darwin: Flushing Man goes Marichal on police officer
And you thought Juan Marichal was the only one who knows how to use a baseball bat in a fight? You were wrong. 21 year old Danny Fernandez of Flushing bashed a police officer over the head with an aluminum baseball bat then stole the officer’s gun and handcuffs. The worst part of the affair were Fernandez’s comments to New York Newsday
I was just doing what everybody wishes they could do, but is too scared to. I thought, ‘This is crazy. Most people won’t do this.’ But I went and did it anyway. I wasn’t looking at the individual, I was looking at what they represented.
Your victim of circumstance is rookie police officer Joseph Cho who is in stable condition with a fractured skull and concussion.
