    Looks like the guy is standing outside macy's. This bullshit is brought to you by all the homeland security bills. They ride the subway, too...Can you imagine being stuck in a subway car with three of these guys? Once I reached in my cam to photograph one as the doors closed and he looked scared like he thought it was a gun.
  • Tony Shi 6y

    it's hercules operation, not a critical situation
  • zat asyraff takiyuddin 6y

    special unit? haha..
  • Tony Shi 6y

    no.. nothing too special
  • Christopher Ebdon 6y

    Lefty you are a retard. If he was scared or thought that you had a gun, you would have known it!

    NYPD Emergency Services Unit is their SWAT/Rescue squad and these guys have some of the most comprehensive train that there is.

    The members are hand picked and are just as well versed at rappelling into an elevator shaft to pull off a rescue as they are making a high risk warrant entry. they can be using the Jaws of Life on an MVA scene, and be called to a barricaded perp the next. They are very versatile and yet do not get the accolade that they deserve.

    Tony, you photos are great tributes to these guys, some of whome died inside the WTC along side the FDNY and PAPD MOS.

  • Gary Curtis 5y

    He must be thinking, years of training, making the grade. To be stood about all day bored! He secretly must wish some incident really!

    E-man, excellent response to the moron, Lefty. I'd always like that officer around. He's a warrior, who will knowingly protect us at the risk of being maimed, disabled, disfigured or murdered. And YOU belittle him. Somebody wrote they saw "sleepy eyes," . . mess with him, or let somebody attempt to hurt you, and you'll see the eye of the tiger . .. by the way, have you ever worked 36 hours without sleep? I doubt it. As for objections to "machine guns in the subway," he is NYPD SOD, the very BEST . . . he can take his AR-15 "machine gun" anywhere I go! Read e-Man's comments again. They are so accurate. God bless the NYPD!
