Inmate Hires Hitman To Behead Police Commissioner in Sean Bell Case
"I want his head chopped off," David Brown, a 400-pound, 6-foot-2 Brooklyn thug, allegedly told an undercover cop posing as a contract killer. "I'm just fed up with the case where the guy got shot 50 times," Brown said, according to cops.
"I want them to feel like I'm a mother.f------ terrorist," Brown allegedly said.
Talking in hushed tones, Brown told the stunned officer he specifically wanted Kelly decapitated and he was willing to pay $15,000 for the deed. The officer responded that a beheading wasn't the kind of thing even an experienced killer could pull off in public.
That's when Brown exposed his entire plot - he also wanted the killer-for-hire to blow up 1 Police Plaza, the NYPD's downtown headquarters, for an additional $50,000.
The veteran officer warned Brown that blowing up police headquarters could cost as much as $150,000 - on top of the $15,000 for Kelly's murder. Brown didn't flinch at the price but made sure the hit man didn't lose sight of his most important goal: "My first priority is Police Commissioner Kelly."
