An Eye For An Eye (Leaves All Of Us Blind)

Last Night...Two New York City Police Officers were murdered in Brooklyn...Shot ,while sitting in their patrol car by a deranged assailant , who then shot and killed himself...

He alledgedly shot and killed the two innocents in retaliation for the deaths of Mike Brown and Eric Garner at the hands of police in seperate incidents this summer..

This is not the way to get justice...This was just terrible..Two more innocents lost their lives in New York City last night....

This grieves me to my soul....and I felt I had to write something about this...

I do not endorse this type of action....Not EVER!... I am not anti-police...I know and am related to a lot of great police officers who serve and protect the way they are supposed to and it's a shame that one crazy deranged man allowed the bad apples to cloud his judgement and thus make him no better than the two killer

I'm just shaking my head...So much violence....So much hatred...So little understanding...and almost no dialouge...Everybody just returns to their tribe....and the truth gets blotted out!

A man who posted anti-police rantings on the Internet ambushed and shot to death two New York City police officers at they sat in their patrol car Saturday, authorities said.

"Two of New York's finest were shot and killed with no warning, no provocation," Police Commissioner William J. Bratton said. "They were quite simply assassinated—targeted for their uniform."
The officers were identified as Rafael Ramos, 40, who was married with a 13-year-old son, and Wenjin Liu, who was married a few months ago.

Commissioner Bratton, speaking at a news conference Saturday night, said the gunman took a shooting stance on the passenger's side of the patrol car and fired several times, striking both officers in the head.

The gunman fled to a subway station and shot himself in the head, Bratton said. He was taken to a Brooklyn hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The gunman also shot and seriously wounded his girlfriend in Baltimore County, Md., on Saturday morning, Bratton said. County detectives received information from the victim's family that the man had associations in Brooklyn and could be going there. Maryland authorities sent a wanted flier about the man to New York at 2:45.

"Tragically, this was essentially at the same time that our officers were being ambushed and murdered," Bratton said.

The shooting, which occurred around 2:50 p.m. outside a housing project, comes amid heightened tension between New York police and activists who have held nearly nightly marches to protest what they say is police brutality.

The marches began in July after the death of an unarmed man, Eric Garner, following an altercation with Staten Island police officers.
A grand jury declined to indict the officer involved, who was accused of using a banned chokehold on Eric Garner.

Last month, more protests erupted after a police officer fatally shot Akai Gurley, an unarmed man, in a stairwell of a Brooklyn housing project. Police said the shooting was an accident.

Tension between New York police and protesters crested last week when officials say two officers were attacked by protesters marching across the Brooklyn Bridge. One of the officers suffered a broken nose. Four people so far have been arrested in connection with the incident and face charges ranging from assault to rioting. More people are being sought.

 The last officer shot to death on duty in New York was Peter J. Figoski, who died in December 2011. Earlier this year, Officer Dennis Guerra died of injuries suffered while responding to a fire.


I think people ,at least in New York City on both sides need a cooling off period...I fear things are going to get worse and escalate because of this, even though the perpatrator is dead...

 I'm just shaking my head...So much violence....So much hatred...So little understanding...and almost no dialouge..This was bound to happen sooner or later...

My heart goes out to the spouses and families of those two police officers.

An Eye for an Eye leaves all of us blind!
