NY1 At 20: 1999 Report Examines NYPD Backlash After Borough Park Shooting
As NY1 revisits its 20-year history, the station looks back at reporter Rebecca Spitz's August 31, 1999 coverage as the Borough Park community became enraged following the police-involved shooting death of Gidone "Gary" Busch, an Orthodox Jewish man with a history of emotional problems. According to police, neighbors claimed Busch was threatening people in the street with a hammer prior to the shooting. However, Busch's family and many in the Borough Park community disputed that account.
