Is this one of the people the criminal-loving left thinks of as a victim of "mass incarceration"?

Suspect accused of dragging injured cop is a convicted killer

A convicted murderer with a long rap sheet is accused of dragging an NYPD officer with his car in Staten Island this weekend, police said.
Officer Gareth Echevarria and his partner questioned Karell Chambers, 33, as he sat in a car with three other men on Victory Boulevard near Travis Avenue around 4 a.m. Saturday, cops said.
When asked for identification, Chambers took off, dragging Echevarria a short distance, cops said. He was charged with felony assault.
Echevarria, who has been on the force for two years, was taken to Richmond University Medical Center for cuts and bruises, and was released Sunday.
Chambers has 19 arrests stemming back to 1998, mostly for drugs and some assault charges.
He was sentenced to seven years behind bars for the 2003 fatal shooting of Ralph Edmonds, 28, in Mariners Harbor in a dispute over drug territory. He began committing crimes again once he was back on the streets in 2010, authorities said.
Meanwhile, Officer Dalsh Veve, 35, remains in critical condition after being dragged several blocks in Brooklyn by another man with an extensive rap sheet later that day.
Justin Murrell, 15, a gang member with 11 arrests, could be prosecuted as an adult, according to officials. He remains hospitalized with a gunshot wound to the face after Veve fired two rounds into the vehicle during the ordeal.
