2 NYPD officers shot and killed ambush style: Blue lives matter too
What’s been an uneasy “calm” has now broken out into the murder of 2 NYPD officers sitting in their patrol car in the Bedford Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn.
CNN reports that both officers were shot in the head, and that the alleged shooter was found dead in what was described as a self inflicted gun shot wound in a nearby subway station.
One woman reportedly had this to say about the shooting:
"This can't happen. If you mad at somebody, be mad at the person that you are mad at. Now, we have two families that (are) missing somebody for the holidays."
"Where is your humanity? I know it's a war going on and shoutout to Eric Garner's family and everybody else who lost somebody, but you're not at his house, on his lawn. This is two (officers). You don't even know if (they were) good or bad. I don't condone this, and I'm not with it."
I can’t imagine that anyone can be “with it;” but one does wonder how long will it be before protests will be held throughout the city and the rest of the country - incensed over the assassinations of 2 guys who were just doing their jobs protecting the lives of neighborhood residents.
Blue lives matter too!
