Things Done Changed
Just in case you thought Park Slope, Brooklyn, had gone soft, think again. Apparently a plain-clothes cop was shot on Prospect Place and Sixth Avenue, just four blocks from where yours truly first learned the difference between pacifist, progressive ideals and street justice. According to the 1010 WINS report (You know it!), old-school protocol was followed strictly, down to the pronouncement of the ritual phrase initiating hostilities:
The driver of the Acura pulled alongside the officers' car, leaned over and said "You got a beef?'' before firing a shot, officials said.
The officer was not seriously injured and is expected to make a full recovery.
