Bernie Goetz Wasn’t High When He Shot Those Teenagers in 1984


The New York Post asked him about the possibility after he was arrested on Friday for selling $30 worth of weed to an undercover officer. “What an odd question! Of course not!” responded the man best known as the “subway vigilante.” “I shouldn’t have said, ‘Of course not,’” Goetz added. “But to perform as good as that, with shooting, I don’t think you could do it stoned.” Do with that what you will.
