Two NYC cops executed – Revenge for #EricGarner? (#BlueLivesMatter)(#NYPD)
Two New York City policemen were shot dead ambush style in their patrol car.
The initial evidence is that it was a revenge killing, but caution that in such events initial evidence can be wrong.
From The NY Post, Gunman kills self after 2 NYPD cops shot dead ‘execution style’ as ‘revenge’ for Garner:
Two uniformed NYPD officers were shot dead Saturday afternoon as they sat in their marked police car on a Brooklyn street corner — in what investigators believe was a crazed gunman’s execution-style mission to avenge Eric Garner and Michael Brown.
“It’s an execution,” one law enforcement source said of the 3 p.m. shooting of the two officers, whose names were being withheld pending family notification of their deaths.
The tragic heroes were working overtime as part of an anti-terrorism drill when they were shot point-blank in their heads by the lone gunman, who approached them on foot from the sidewalk at the corner of Myrtle and Tompkins avenues in Bed-Stuy.
“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 through their front passenger window.

Let me be the first to say that these murders were practically arranged by Obama, Holder, Sharpton, Jackson, and every other race baiter in this country. This is the result of irresponsible leadership. Now what will they say? In all sincerity and without blasphemy I pray: God damn them!
Q. What will they say?
I think that it’s time for the NYPD to be swept by a wave a “blue flu” that keeps every single officer at home for a week to 10 days. Yes, a virulent strain of “blue flu” could leave the Big Apple solely in the care of De Blasio and his ilk. Let’s see how they do keeping the public safe, especially seeing how the public has been denied any meaningful Second Amendment rights.
Yeah, call in sick. All of you.
Is DiBlasio going to try to show up at their funerals?
Words fail me.
One thing I would bet all I have on…
the officers who are his body-guards, and those for his kids, will do their duty.
Because they are infinitely better people than the people they serve.
I cannot remember this level of anger in middle class America since William Calley was charged in VietNam. This is not going to blow over. People have taken their gloves off and removed their filters. They are actually saying what they mean – even if it is not PC.
That Idiot Barak Obama has destroyed race relations by perpetuating lies and half truths for political gain.
Sew the Wind – Reap the Whirlwind!
Unfortunately, that was a proposal by the union local leader and the forms may not have been distributed widely enough yet. So these two men may not have had the chance to sign one.
And they may not have wanted to sign it, we have no way of knowing.
BUT if either DID sign the form or indicate their intent to do so, that rotten commie DeBlasio better not show up.
*** The spell-check here questions ‘DeBlasio’ is correct. When I right-click to add it, the first suggestion is ‘Delusional’ – I kid you not. AI is getting closer . . .
The only way that I can see DeBlasio getting rid of this shit sandwich is if he gets the entire together (or better yet, visits every precinct in the city), gets on his knees and begs for forgiveness. Sincerely begs for forgiveness. Then walks out and does a 180 actionwise.
Otherwise, he won’t be able to do anything for the remainder of his tenure.
Never happen. Liberals can never admit to being wrong.
Is DiBlasio going to try to show up at their funerals?
My question: will the “courageous” chanting Occupy protestors show up (and continue their “courageous” chants)?
This is just going to make things worse. No wonder that the police sometimes use excessive force – they may need to do so if they want to go home safely after their shifts.
Well, the voters did their part in supposedly improving race relations in this country by electing Obama twice. But refresh my memory. What exactly has Obama done to improve race relations? He has given prominence to race-baiters, especially Sharpton. And he has taken the side of the protesters over the police, which is tacit endorsement of anti-police crimes such as this.
Of course, I am being far too kind. Under Obama race relations have deteriorated to a point I cannot recall since the 60’s. Don’t get me started on Holder.
Check out Twitchy for the Twitter reaction. I realize that these are outliers, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see some people dancing in the streets over this – like the Muslim world on 9/11.
We are teetering on the edge of a race war and The administration is just standing on the sidelines. That is, when they aren’t actively pouring gasoline on the fire.
“We are teetering on the edge of a race war and The administration is just standing on the sidelines.”
Yeah, they are the guys with the pom-poms and the short, skimpy skirts.
I’m going to qualify my ‘race war’ concerns. There seem to be a lot of blacks paying respect to the fallen officers.
So, I qualify by saying war with Obama, Holder, De Blasio, Sharpton, and all the other race hustlers and Lefties who deliberately divide us on racial lines.
I am not surprised that it happened.
I am surprised that it did not happen sooner, with all the lies and agitation by the media and liberals.
Without taking blame away from this murderous POS, there are also others that share the blame 100%:
– Barack Obama
– Eric Holder
– Al Sharpton
Feel free to add to the list.
Is it true the suspect had his hands up when he shot himself?
It has been verified that Homey Brimsley had his head in a tight tunnel to his rear when he pulled his cowardly trigger. May he turn slowly on a spit in Hell for Eternity.
But, hey, Thank the Gods that Rev’rund Tawana Sharpton is going to Hollywood to tech them folks what’cha’call diversity and inclusion ‘cuz they racists,’Yo.
We grateful, Tawana…We soooooooo grateful,’Yo.
thanks, coffee out the nostrils is a pleasant feeling LOL
The stage is set and it’s going to get ugly fast!
Amazing how well De Blasio talks out of both sides of his mouth!
Amazing how well De Blasio talks out of both sides of his arse!
There, fixed it for you.
Thank you for saying what I was thinking!
I’m so angry at the punks and the naive folks who had pushed this agenda!
It seems the media is going to get the race war they wanted.
The cops were asian and hispanic. If this is a race war, it is between the black race and the blue race.
For months the media has been portraying the deaths of Eric Garner and Michael Brown as evil white cops murdering innocent black children/men. Our self-anointed moral and intellectual betters in the media have assured us this is a racist epidemic, a throwback to the days of the KKK and Jim Crow. This has been about as subtle as an atomic mushroom cloud: “Cops = murdering white supremicists” has been the journalistic spin for months.
So of course these were anti-white racially-motivated killings. The fact that the two murder victims were not white is unimportant to both the killer and his journalist enablers who have been beating the drums of race war. Let’s be honest: the lives of cops is unimportant to Ishmael Brinsley and the monsters who run ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, CNN, etc.
A little martial law can help keep the man in office; who’s going to stop him? Boehner?
I’m getting a bit tired (and concerned) at the competing memes of who’s lives matter.
ALL LIVES MATTER. And it’s a shame that the person who said this was made to apologize as if not singling out a group for special attention was somehow demeaning or degrading.
This bluelivesmatter falls into the same thing.
It’s true they do but THEY DON’T MATTER MORE THAN ANY OTHER LIVE.
And that should be the point.
Otherwise we’re just drawing lines and getting ready to defend or attack who ever isn’t on “our” side.
Notice how nobody wants to admit that some of what’s happened has been driven by bad behavior on all sides.
Once everyone takes a hard stand and admits no culpability then there can be no compromise. And that’s when things get even more ugly.
“Notice how nobody wants to admit that some of what’s happened has been driven by bad behavior on all sides.”
I know what you’re trying to say, but this mess is really the media’s doing, don’t ya’ think? If they reported, instead of instigated, perhaps this may not have happened. As it is they are cheerleaders and agitators, no better than the protesters. THEY chose sides and that led to this event. They canonized Michael Brown and vilified Officer Wilson. That’s fair? Now they will switch gears and bemoan the murder of two officers as if they had nothing to do with it.
For the record: I did not down thumb you. I don’t use that, only thumbs up. I understood the point you were making.
I blame the race hustlers. 0bama, Holder, Sharpton, Jackson. They all have blood on their hands. There is no denying that.
As usual, Big Media is ignoring the Islamic connection, in this case, that the shooter appears Muslim and has Quranic screeds on his FaceBook page. Text such as “Strike terror into the hearts of the enemies of Allah.” Yet another PC elephant in the room.
See Robert Spencer here .
The implication is not that only Muslims would commit such acts, but rather the observation is that Muslims simply seem more predisposed to violence, that Islam teaches that violence is acceptable.
My deepest condolences to the families of the victims and to their brave colleagues.
1. Has Obama expressed ANY condolences? Or is he still pouncing about on an Hawaiian golf course?
2. Has Holder instigated a review to see if the the Officers’ Civil Rights have been violated? Or some such nonsense.
3. Has Sharpton expressed any regret for his chantIng “What do we want…..Dead Cops….Now.” Or is this result exactly what he wanted? (Will any MSM Journalist ask him this question at the Press Conference he’s called?).
I trust they all delighted with their handiwork. What appalling race baiters they all are.
Great question John. will President Obama play golf today? Let’s see if we can get a poll going.
I say , Yes he will play golf!
You live in such a dream world!
Al Dull-ton is going to hold a press conference to denounce the murders of these two officers. Children, can you say “Hypocrite?” He has spent the last four months inciting ‘his people’ to violence against the police, and he is now shocked that his message was heard? What a contemptible, totally worthless charlatan! I long for a day when a respected, well-loved black leader completely repudiates the little wretch. (I can dream, can’t I?)
I don’t even recognize the United States anymore. To think so many people would rejoice at the killing of two men who swore to defend us all simply disgusts me. It would be wise to not speak ill of these men within my hearing.
We let the race hustlers get away with acting like Trayvon Martin, Micheal Brown, Vonderritt Myers, Jr., and Eric Garner were innocent victims of white racist cops.
This result was entirely predictable.
Standing by when they start their garbage, just rolling our eyes and tuning them out, is only enabling them.
Al Sharpton, of course! He never misses a chance to jump in front of a camera, does he? Or to portray himself as some sort of leader (but of what?), and as relevant and newsworthy.
He doesn’t flinch at stepping over bodies to get there, he is very good at keeping blood off his shoes.
His hands, not so much.
HINT to shoe shine boys: if Al messes up and does get someone’s blood on his shoes and comes to you, REMEMBER: cash up front!
Anyone that posted that awful hashtag “blacklivesmatter” now has blood on their hands. You don’t make a statement like that unless you believe there is a significant portion of the population that believes the counterpoint, that black lives don’t matter. And it is that vile position that pushes a deranged fool to do something like this. So yes, your self righteous twitter protests gave this psychopath the courage and moral justification to murder these men, after all, you spent the past three weeks reaffirming that cops don’t care about black lives. #effingfurious #takeresponsibilityforyouractions
Let NO ONE FORGET that the officers who were trying to arrest Eric Garner were doing so under a DIRECTIVE FROM THE MAYOR to enforce the law against selling loosies.
This war will not be about race, it may be the middle class against the ruling class.
…and they were being supervised by a black Sgt.
First, my condolences to the families of these two slain officers, I hope that they are surrounded by love and support. Secondly, I have to wonder if President Obama will send White House reps to either of these funerals.
The Ferguson mob is doubling down. Jim Hoft posts that rioters last night chanted “pigs in a blanket,” and Holder’s boy leading the chant said “The police have no1 2blame but themselves4the cops getting murdered inNY.”
Holder, Bozo, what-do-we-want-dead-cops Sharpton, and pinko Bill: NO CRED, kiss off.
Obozo: “Tie score. Now can we all get along?” (No more “understandable reactions,” Barry?)
This has an excellent chance of going bad in a hurry. As a retired Police Officer (37+ years) I can attest that the Officers in the streets will be on pins and needles and they won’t think twice about protecting themselves. One commenter made the statement that it won’t be racial but others against “Blue” and that is exactly correct. The Blue family will pull together and protect themselves against all comers and this has the potential to escalate dramatically, especially if another incident takes place in another city and more Officers are killed or wounded. It will push the Officers into a siege mentality and the snowball will grow into an avalanche of devastating proportions. Sharpton and DeBlasio have a lot to answer for and the Officers in the cars are caught in the middle…and when you are caught in the middle, you fight your way out.
I give it not even a week before the cop bashing and race baiting is back to the usual.
DeBlasio should resign now. Lamer duck than Obama.
