Breaking Tonight: Two New York Cops Shot Execution Style in Revenge Killing
The people who have been leading angry mobs through the streets of New York chanting demands for dead cops may not have pulled the trigger but they will have to answer for this. As should Mayor Bill de Blasio, Al Sharpton, Eric Holder and Barack Obama.
Gunman executes 2 NYPD cops as ‘revenge’ for Garner
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.
The tragic heroes were working overtime as part of an anti-terrorism drill in Bedford-Stuyvesant when they were shot point-blank in the head by the lone gunman, identified by sources as Ismaaiyl Brinsley, 28, who had addresses in Georgia and Brooklyn.
Moments after killing the two officers, he too was dead, having turned the gun on himself on a nearby subway platform as cops closed in.

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.
He also included the sick hashtags: #ShootThePolice #RIPErivGarner #RIPMike Brown.
“This May Be My Final Post…I’m Putting Pigs In A Blanket.”
Brinsley made good on his sinister promise, firing several rounds into the patrol car parked near Myrtle and Tompkins Aves., cops and witnesses said.
Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu were in the area for an anti-terrorism drill, sources said.“The perp came out of the houses, walked up behind the car and lit them up,” a high-ranking police official told The News.
“They were quite simply assassinated,” said NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton.
Remember when Sarah Palin was guilty of attempted murder for putting a target on a map?
I look forward to endless lectures about a new tone and civility directed at the left.
