    “It’s an execution,” one law-enforcement source said of the 3 p.m. shooting.

    The tragic heroes were working overtime as part of an anti-terrorism drill in Bedford-Stuyvesant when they were shot point-blank in the head by the lone gunman, identified by sources as Ismaaiyl Brinsley, 28, who had addresses in Georgia and Brooklyn.

    Moments after killing the two officers, he too was dead, having turned the gun on himself on a nearby subway platform as cops closed in.

    “I’m Putting Wings on Pigs Today,” a person believed to be the gunman wrote on Instagram in a message posted just three hours before the officers were shot.

            Horrid. Why do these people get the order wrong? If you feel like shooting somebody, shoot yourself FIRST!

                The Mayor has said dumb things, more or less supporting the "peaceful protests" but in a way that makes it sound like "understands" the violence that sometimes happens.

                The police union had already asked him not to show up at any cop funerals. This was before today. It will be interesting to see. Also, the hatchet attack on NYPD cops - the Mayor, in my opinion, bungled the handling of that one.

                The Mayor is VERY unpopular with the rank and file.

                    We need an honest-to-goodness Holy Ghost revival.

                      Evidence for the reason police assume everyone is a threat to their safety. Most people aren't, but every once in a while.....this.

                      Rest In Peace, Brothers Liu and Ramos. Your watch is finally over.
                      "If you believe, take the first step, it leads to Jesus Christ. If you don't believe, take the first step all the same, for you are bidden to take it. No one wants to know about your faith or unbelief, your orders are to perform the act of obedience on the spot. Then you will find yourself in the situation where faith becomes possible and where faith exists in the true sense of the word." - Dietrich Bonhoeffer, The Cost of Discipleship

                        Sorry, but I get angry. I've had my share of headlines where horrible people shoot others minding their own business.

                          Yeah, I know. And this nut allegedly shot and killed his girlfriend, then posted that he was going to "put wings on pigs", and kill 2 cops. "they take one of ours, we take two of theirs", or some such nuttery.

                            I don't know of anything like this ever happening before, but when Blasio came to the presser about the slain officers, NYPD officers turned their backs on him.

                            That's a HUGE vote of no confidence.
