In domestic news, all three networks followed up on the police shooting of a groom-to-be in Queens NY over the weekend. Undercover cops had staked out the strip club where his bachelor party was held. They were looking for "drugs, prostitution and guns," NBC's Mike Taibbi told us. When the party was over the groom's car and an undercover minivan collided and guns were drawn. The five policemen were armed; the three bachelors were not. In all, 50 bullets were fired and the groom was killed. ABC's Ron Clairborne (subscription required) pointed out that the NYPD trains its officers to fire only three shots "and then assess." NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg called the gunfire "excessive and unacceptable."
