The first sentence says it all

"Two off-duty female cops yelled, "We are the police!" - and then pistol-whipped a Bronx man in what authorities call a case of road rage."

Ah, the Big Apple, where the average peasant is denied their right to carry a weapon for self defense from crazed road-rage perpetrators, and is instead forced to rely on the pol- Oh. Never mind.

Luckily for the city's residents, these two officers' brief careers seem to be over:

"Anglin and Robinson were suspended and stripped of their guns as they were arraigned Sunday on the gang assault charges. Robinson's bail was $10,000 cash or bond. Anglin's bail was set at $25,000 cash or bond."

And these were the "only people professional enough" to carry firearms in New York? I guess I won't be visiting there voluntarily anytime soon.
