NEW YORK - For New York City, it wasn't an unusual sight: a possibly mentally ill woman pacing and mumbling to herself on an elevated subway station platform. The woman eventually took a seat on a bench Thursday night, witnesses later said. Then, without any warning or provocation, she sprang up and used both hands to shove a man into the path of an oncoming train. As police sought on Friday to locate the unidentified woman, Mayor Michael Bloomberg urged residents to keep the second fatal subway shove in the city this month in perspective.

PITTSBURGH - A black man contends that he was fired at the end of his 18-month probationary period as a state trooper over false claims that he did not properly write reports and sometimes used black English when he did, according to a federal lawsuit. The federal lawsuit was filed Tuesday on behalf of William Peake, 29, of Sewickley, who graduated from the police academy in May 2009 and soon after was stationed at the Uniontown barracks, at which, his attorney contends, nearly all troopers are white.

When William H. Jones worked undercover as a Philadelphia police officer, he once had to dress as a priest. With a Bible. And a gun. "It was a robbery-prevention unit," his son Timothy said, and Mr. Jones had "a snub-nosed .38 that he carried in a Bible. " It was a Bible "that he cut the pages out of" so that the .38 fit inside, his son said. "I remember the Bible being around the house. " On Saturday, Sept. 15, Mr. Jones, 72, a Philadelphia police officer from 1969 to 1992, died of cancer at his home in Springville, Susquehanna County.

Officer Brad Fox dropped by his old municipal police academy in Plymouth Township on Thursday. He wanted a friend to see his K-9 partner, Nick. That was typical of Fox; once he became your friend, he stayed in touch. "We knew when he moved, we knew when his wife got pregnant - he dropped by to tell us. That was the kind of guy he was," said Frank Williar, director of Montgomery County Community College's Municipal Police Academy. Fox, seven years a Plymouth Township patrolman, died from a single gunshot to the head Thursday on the eve of his 35th birthday.

LAWYER JIMMY BINNS loves cops.   He holds the title of honorary chief, detective or deputy sheriff in at least 10 departments from the city to the suburbs to the Jersey Shore. He raises mountains of money to buy cops gear and is behind several efforts to recognize police and firefighters killed in the line of duty and to help their families. He even, controversially, sometimes rides around the region in a fake police uniform on a police-style Harley. Soon, he could become a real cop. Binns, 72, has applied to the Municipal Police Academy at Delaware County Community College, one of 21 such schools certified statewide to provide official basic police training.
