Notorious Inmate Slain in N.Y. Prison

NEW YORK — To some on the streets, Larry Davis was a legend: A black drug dealer who shot six white police officers as they closed in to arrest him, then fled into the night and eluded capture for more than two weeks.

To authorities, he was an outrage — a violent criminal who would beat the court system time and time again, staying out of jail until he was convicted years later in a separate case.

His saga came to a violent end Wednesday night, when a fellow inmate stabbed him to death with a homemade knife in a New York state prison. Years after the violence that made him notorious, his dual identity still stirs emotions in the city.

Ok oh well here's my comment as seen on newsvine:
I was running around back then and was on Riker's Island with Larry Davis.It was some crazy times back then.Anyway the point is that I haven't been in prison since 91 and can't remember the last time
I committed a crime.I feel fortunate that I'm still alive having been shot in NY twice myself.I have a great wife and a few kids.I think back and think that if I had had a good family that I thought REALLY cared about me,yeah I know sounds lame,I wouldn't of had a need to get in trouble.They did the best they could I guess.I was thinking just last night how lucky I was and how many people I know/knew were murdered,it's alot.Originally I wanted my blog to be about all the crazy violence in cities I still have connections with:Rochester N.Y,San Antonio,T.X and Key West FL but to be honest it is just to painful and MURDERS happen to fast to keep up on.MY father was murdered in Brooklyn in 1975,no one ever went to jail.Anyway I know I'm not going to kill anyone today and I'm going to try my best not to get Murdered,think that's funny people get murdered everyday right where I'm right now...
