NEW YORK — Police unions' efforts to revoke a regulation requiring Breathalyzer tests for all New York cops who open fire on suspects were shot down in a courtroom yesterday.
Manhattan federal Judge George Daniels rejected three unions' argument that the rule, which was implemented after four cops shot an unarmed Sean Bell dead in 2006, was unconstitutional.
