When Esteban Carpio, an accused cop killer, entered court he wore a mask that made the criminal unrecognizable. Although most of America despises him for the horrid crimes he is accused of committing, his family nearly fainted when they saw how badly he had been abused while in custody.
Although Carpio had received what he deserved for murdering cops, all his family could do was scream “police brutality” as they saw his abused and bloody face in the courtroom. But while their stating that is not a crime, the fact that they went on and on about it could have been. The judge would have been well within the line if they had been held in contempt of court.
America, however, has no pity on the man with the destroyed face. Esteban Carpio has been caught killing cops. And the family and friends of Detective James L. Allen are still mourning the loss of a great man.
The incident was a tragedy. And it all could have been avoided if Carpio wasn’t a cold-blooded killer.
Carpio killed Allen when he fired the cop’s own gun point blank at the officer. During the incident, Allen and Carpio were not even fighting. The young man was being questioned about another matter when he suddenly lunged at the police officer’s firearm and turned it on the cop. With a twisted smile on his face, Carpio fired the gun point-blank at Allen and killed him.
The incident happened in Providence, Rhode Island while Carpio was in police headquarters. The incident happened around 12 am Sunday. The veteran officer was in the middle of questioning him about the stabbing of an 84-year-old woman.
Assistant Attorney General Paul Daly said in court that Carpio grabbed Detective Allen’s pistol while held in the third-story interview room. He shot the cop twice and then blew out the window with a third shot.
