  • 2 NYPD cops shot dead ‘execution style’ in Brooklyn

    Given the current frictions between the police and Mayor De Blasio, I wonder if he'll be invited to the funeral

    Two uniformed NYPD officers were shot dead — execution style — as they sat in their marked police car on a Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, street corner.
    According to preliminary reports, both officers were working overtime as part of an anti-terrorism drill when they were shot point-blank by a single gunman who approached their car at the corner of Myrtle and Tompkins avenues.
    “It’s an execution,” one law enforcement source told The Post of the 3 p.m. shooting.
    The gunman just started “pumping bullets” into the patrol car, another source said.
    The suspected gunman fled to a nearby subway station at Myrtle and Willoughby avenues, where he was fatally shot. Preliminary reports were unclear on whether he was shot by police or his own hand.
    “They engaged the guy and he did himself,” one investigator said.

    Interesting to see the sanitisation of the story over the last 24 hours in real time rather than using way back.

    Anyways, it no longer has anything to do with the race hate campaign being run by the democrat party but just another unfortunate coincidence, nothing to see, move on.

      This occurred (for real) the way people imagine Michael Brown was killed: Sitting there minding his own business when some racist cop decided to execute him in broad daylight simply for being black.
      Supporting or defending Donald Trump is such an unforgivable moral failing that it calls every bit of your judgement and character into question. Nothing about you should be trusted if you can look at this man and find redeemable value

          Sharpton denounced it pretty scathingly. Not that he had much of a choice.

            I read that the gun had been purchased in a pawn shop in 1996 in Georgia, and he had 15 arrests in Georgia. :slap: He also shot his girlfriend in Maryland just previous to him going to New York.

              he tweeted just before and just after the shooting- saw the blood on his pants. So a black man mad about white cops killing other black men shoots an Asian and a Hispanic... makes (no) sense. Shooting random cops won't fix the divide between police and citizen, it will only reinforce the cop siege mentality which will lead to more use of force which will lead to more citizen sense of siege...

                .....and his girlfriend (race unknown to me at this point). Lets not forget the first victim in all this just because she doesn't fit the narrative.

                If you are trying to find sense in any of this you will fail. The only people who think they see some sort of 'sense' in this are running their own agendas.

                  Here's one agenda
                  The NY Police Union
                  You'll note the automatic assumption and justification that NYPD police are inherently racist, invoking De Blasio, the President etc.
                  This isn't a new agenda, the democrats have been running it for years.

                    He may have shot her, haven't seen that confirmed, I did see his posts directly before and after the shooting saying he was gonna give (then gave) a pair of pigs their wings (his words). He said he was doing this for Mike Brown and Eric Garner.

                      — Rev. Al Sharpton

                      "Gun violence continues to plague our city and we remain committed to working with both members of the community and law enforcement to address it in a nonviolent, peaceful, and productive way."




                      I'd say the bastard used the usual liberal "gun violence" bull shit as he never lets an event go by without blaming guns.
                      Removing a single turd from the cesspool doesn't make any difference.

                            I see now he had at least 19 charges in Georgia alone, some for gun possession. The shooter's mother states that he had mental issues and even she was scared of him. With THAT kind of rap sheet, how was this guy even still walking the streets, and with a gun? The shooter had a history of doing bad things for attention. NY attracted him like a magnet.

                              pari,

                              You'll note the automatic assumption and justification that NYPD police are inherently racist, invoking De Blasio, the President etc.
                              even without invoking the race card, there's simply a problem with the simple numbers when it comes to US police turning to what should be a last resort.



                              moreover, as the article you posted points out, police dept reporting shows that black males are 21x more likely to be shot than white males.

                              one doesn't need to be a full-on race-baiter like Sharpton to note that something is wrong here, and that this ultimately undermines minority trust in the police, which is bad for -everyone-.
