Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos were shot point blank in the head as they sat in their patrol car. The officers were working overtime on an anti-terror drill when they were murdered.
Two uniformed NYPD officers were shot dead Saturday afternoon as they sat in their marked police car on a Brooklyn street corner — in what investigators believe was a crazed gunman’s assassination-style mission to avenge Eric Garner and Michael Brown.
“It’s an execution,” one law-enforcement source said of the 3 p.m. shooting of police officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos.
Ismaaiyl Brinsley, the filthy murderous animal, killed himself when approached by responding officers. Incredibly, Brinsley posted his intentions on his Instagram account.
“I’m Putting Wings on Pigs Today,” [Brinsley] wrote on Instagram in a message posted just three hours before the officers were shot.
“They Take 1 Of Ours…Let’s Take 2 of Theirs,” the post continued, signing off with, “This May Be My Final Post.”
The murders come only days after New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio met with Eric Garner protestors, some of whom chanted, "What do we want? Dead cops!"
Those people got what they wanted for Christmas. For the families of Officers Liu and Ramos, Christmas will never be the same again. A few Facebook friends of mine have asked my opinion of this despicable, devastating crime. Personally, I think this is simply the beginning. I think police officers across the nation have targets on their backs, and I believe some of the blame lies at the feet of race-baiting pot-stirrers like Al Sharpton, Eric Holder, and yes, even Barack Obama. I believe things will get worse before they get better, and I hope my fellow officers take extra precautions while on and off duty.
As Sean Connery said in The Untouchables, "The first rule of law enforcement is make sure when your shift is over you go home alive.
