The article details the lack of reaction to the shooting death of Gary "Gideon" Busch by NYPD officers. Busch, a Hasidic Jew, was pepper-sprayed and while he ran around in pain holding a hammer he had been using in prayer rituals. He was shot 12 times by police, according to witnesses. Police claim they were attacked, though coroner's findings suggest otherwise. The article discusses attempts by Mayor Giuliani and police to "cover-up" the incident.
