It's Been A Sad Day In Brooklyn, Very Sad...

...and with the sadness is mixed in lots of anger and disbelief after the assassination of two New York City Police Officers by a cowardly lowlife. Their killer sneaked up on them from behind and opened fire without giving them a chance and snuffed out the lives of two young men before their times.

NYPD Officers Ramos and Liu, RIP.
Rafael Ramos, who had been on the force for three years, was a 40 year old husband and the father of a 13 year old. Wenjian Liu, a seven year veteran of the NYPD, was only 32 years old and had been married all of about 2 months.

Their suspected killer, Ismaaiyl Brinsley allegedly had shot his girlfriend in Baltimore, MD earlier in the day and then reportedly made several posts to her Instagram account in which he said, among other things, that he was going to put wings on some cops in NY. The Baltimore police reportedly warned the NYPD about Brinsley's threats against NYPD Officers but the warning came too late to do any good.

Brinsley apparently traveled to NY where he allegedly shot the cops in Brooklyn as they sat in their patrol car. He then walked to a subway station where he allegedly shot and killed himself. Fucking bastard was to much of a coward to face what he had coming.

My heart felt condolences go out to their families and loved ones and to their brothers and sisters in blue. A Merry Christmas or Happy Chanukah will not be had for the families of these officers - maybe not for years to come - and it is certain that a pall of sadness has fallen over their brothers and sisters in blue, and all New Yorkers, this holiday season. 

All the best,
Glenn B
