The insanity of guns, hatred and violence continues to wreck more victims …
(NY Post) – Ismaaiyl Brinsley fired at NYPD officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu in their squad car in Bedford-Stuyvesant sources said. Hours earlier, Brinsley shot his girlfriend in Baltimore and boasted in social media about wanting to kill cops. Both officers later died at Woodhull Hospital.
Two NYPD cops were executed Saturday after a suspected gang member from Baltimore trekked to Brooklyn to kill police officers in a twisted bid to avenge the deaths of Eric Garner and Michael Brown, sources told the Daily News.
The shooter — identified as Ismaaiyl Brinsley– boasted about wanting to murder cops in the hours before he ambushed the officers outside the Tompkins Houses in Bedford-Stuyvesant around 2:45 p.m. — around the same time Baltimore officers sent a wanted flier to the NYPD.
“I’m Putting Wings On Pigs Today. They Take 1 Of Ours…Let’s Take 2 of Theirs,” Brinsley, 28, wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of a silver handgun.
Brinsley made good on his sinister promise, firing several rounds into the patrol car parked near Myrtle and Tompkins Aves., cops and witnesses said.
NYPD officers turn their backs on Mayor de Blasio at police presser
“Every New Yorker should feel they were attacked, that our entire city was attacked, by this heinous individual,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio, who was spotted on a PIX 11 video weaving through several cops who turned their backs on him as he made his way into the hospital.
Tensions between the police unions and the mayor have ratcheted up in recent weeks after a Staten Island grand jury declined to indict an officer involved in the chokehold death of Eric Garner in July.
The blood of 2 executed police officers is on the hands of Mayor de Blasio. May God bless their families and may they rest in peace. [Official twitter page from Sergeants Benevolent Association (SBA) of 12,000 active and retired sergeants of the NYPD]
