Most, if not all of you, have already heard of the execution style slayings of two New York police officers by Ismaaiyl Brinsley, a black Muslim. The Huffington Post has the basic facts of the story:
Two New York City police officers, Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos, were shot dead "execution style" in Brooklyn just before 3 p.m. Saturday, police said, by an alleged gang member who posted on social media that he wanted revenge for the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner.
"Quite simply, they were assassinated," NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton said at a press conference held Saturday evening at the hospital where the grieving families gathered. "Both officers paid the ultimate sacrifice today while protecting the communities they serve."
Liu and Ramos may have never seen the attacker open fire as they were sitting in their patrol car, Bratton said, on special duty because of heightened violence in the area.
Liu, age 32, was a seven year veteran of the force, the NYPD Deputy Commissioner of Public Information said in a statement. Liu was married only two months ago, according to Bratton, who met with the fallen officer's devastated parents and new bride.
Ramos, who just had his 40th birthday, became a cop only three years ago after working for years as a school safety officer. He was a two year veteran of the NYPD, the DCPI said. Ramos' family includes a wife and 13-year-old son, "who couldn't comprehend what had happened to his father," New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said.Two Con Ed workers witnessed the shooting, followed Brinsley to a subway station, and were able to describe him to police. Brinsley killed himself as police closed in on him. Although Obama, Eric Holder, Al Sharpton and the other race baiters are trying to back away from this event, it is clear that they own it. The race baiters Quislings have been celebrating. Some in Brooklyn cheered at news of the killings, as did protestors in Ferguson. (See also this story at Newsbusters).
On a related note, I spotted the following in an post at The Truth About Guns about ridiculous gun laws in Belize:
Remember, there was a time when we were enslaved, and for sure we knew we were not free. The white supremacists, in their calculated brilliance, then introduced a disguised form of slavery to us, and they called it colonialism. When we got hip to how degrading colonialism really was, the white supremacists, in a burst of renewed calculated brilliance, said, listen up, we’ll give you independence.
Okay now, can’t you see, Belizean people, that this game is bogus? The evidence is the weed law and the evidence is the gun law. These are not Belizean laws. These are oppressive laws. The PUDP are in bed with white supremacy. Power to the people. This is a must.(Underlines added). The quote was from an op-ed published in a Belizean publication.
