Families of slain #NYPD officers give emotional statements
Their loved-ones mattered.
Two months ago, Pei Xia Chen was a happy newlywed.
Now, she’s living a nightmare as the widow of executed NYPD officer Wenjian Liu, and the focus of a media frenzy. She offered a statement to the press late yesterday evening:
The devastated widow of slain police Officer Wenjian Liu spoke Monday about her husband’s choice to lead a life of service as a shaken city continued to mourn him and Officer Rafael Ramos — two heroes executed by a madman.
“His dreams were of providing for his current and growing family,” Pei Xia Chen said tearfully of the man she had just married in September.
“He was an asset to the police department, using his Chinese language skills whenever and wherever it was needed,” she said in a statement.
Jaden Ramos is only 13, but he’s having to deal with the same pain wracking Officer Liu’s family. His father, Officer Rafael Ramos, was in the cruiser with Liu when Ismaaiyl Brinsley brutally executed the two men in broad daylight.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio asked for a halt to protests until after the officers’ funerals take place—but not before venting his frustrations on the media for its negative portrayal of protesters who demand dead cops as sufficient restitution for the lives of Eric Garner and Michael Brown.
This is America’s shame. We all own it by default, which means we have to make a decision: do we embrace the insanity that is the current evolution of the “social justice” movement, or do we take a stand on behalf of all lives?
If this is what victory or “progress” looks like for the race hustlers of America, then I pray for their abject and rapid failure.

I just cannot bear to watch
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, on the defensive following the killing of two police officers in Brooklyn, accused the media Monday of stoking racial tensions rather than objectively covering “peaceful protests.”
“What are you guys going to do? Are you going to keep dividing us?” de Blasio said when asked whether aggressive demonstrations contributed to shootings of officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos.
When was the last time that a politician blamed the media… And it worked ?
I could see – and would love to see – this back-firing. Spectacularly. He’s openly accusing the press of divisive reporting and rhetoric. I don’t think he’s wrong, but on the other hand they were also simply covering the divisive statements and rhetoric he himself was spouting.
He’s accusing them of repeating and broadcasting what he was saying.
So, what would happen if Mayor De Blasio came out to make a public address or two, and no press was there to cover them?
What would Mayor De Blasio do if the media turned their collective backs on him, as the NYPD has done?
After seeing what the family of the officers are going through, I would give the officers a pass if they turned their backs and dropped their pants the next time De Blameo walks by them.
As I said above, I’d give the media a pass if they just didn’t show up the next time Mayor De Blasio had something to say.
Or showed up, but left the cameras packed and the microphones off. Or talked about the weather forecast through his whole speech.
Something delightfully disrespectful.
“…de Blasio asked for a halt to protests until after the officers’ funerals take place—but not before venting his frustrations on the media for its negative portrayal of protesters who demand dead cops as sufficient restitution for the lives of Eric Garner and Michael Brown.”
Tea Party Protests = zero cops killed.
Tea Party protests = zero anyone killed, no one injured except Tea Partiers injured by union thugs, no property damage, and Tea Partiers leaving the scene picked up and clean.
I can’t watch the video either as my eyes already seem to be watering. I am getting angrier and angrier at those who are purposely dividing the country for political or personal gain. Shame, shame, except they have no shame.
I watched for you. Left me sobbing. My heart breaks for these families. My brain is furious with de Blasio. What a disgusting worm.
Strong families are what makes this country great and when such a family is torn apart it is a terrible thing.
I hope to be able to do genealogical research for some retirement income (comment if you want my website url) and in researching my own family, I am happy to say that neither my wife nor I have any direct ancestors who divorced, and none who weren’t married. A strong family is worth everything; having people who you can always count on and who you would do anything for. My wife and I grew up in such families, we have such a family now and I simply cannot imagine what life must be like without the support of my family.
Then I look at Michale Brown’s family. A mother who left him with his grandmother to raise, a father who is who knows where, a ‘step-father’ who is just his mother’s live in boyfriend. Did anyone care for him besides his grandmother? Did she? How sad.
. I listed to Pei Xia Chen say that they were expecting family to travel all the way from China. That just got to me. She moved me to tears.
And zero cleanup costs and zero arrests and zero property damage. Or as a Seattle cop once told us with a smile, “Next time could you be a little more exciting? You guys aren’t giving us anything to do.”
The only justification for anthropogenic murder/abortion is when it is committed in self-defense. Civilized societies need to review the consequences of rejecting intrinsic value. #AllLivesMatter
“If this is what victory or “progress” looks like for the race hustlers of America, then I pray for their abject and rapid failure.”
I pray for their timely, painful, agonizing and horrifying deaths. The only good communists are dead communists.
Merry Christmas, Reverend Al.
