From the New York Daily News.
Two NYPD cops were executed Saturday after a career criminal drove from Baltimore to Brooklyn to kill police officers in a twisted bid to avenge the deaths of Eric Garner and Michael Brown.
“They were, quite simply, assassinated,” a shaken NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton said Saturday night.
The shooter — identified as Ismaaiyl Brinsley — boasted about wanting to murder cops in the hours before he ambushed the officers outside the Tompkins Houses in Bedford-Stuyvesant about 2:45 p.m.
“I’m putting wings on pigs today. They take 1 of ours … let’s take 2 of theirs,” Brinsley, 28, wrote on Instagram, alongside a photo of a silver handgun.
He also included three hashtags: ShootThePolice, RIPErivGarner (sic) and RIPMikeBrown.
“This may be my final post … I’m putting pigs in a blanket.”
……Brinsley made good on his sinister promise, firing several rounds into the marked patrol car parked on Tompkins Ave. near Myrtle Ave., cops and witnesses said.
The officers — Rafael Ramos, 40, and Wenjian Liu, 32 — were in the area as part of a push to beef up cops’ presence near violence-plagued housing projects.
…… Right after Brinsley fired the fatal shots, he sprinted around the corner to the G line subway station at Myrtle-Willoughby Aves., with cops in close pursuit.
Brinsley disappeared inside the station, then shot himself in the head on a platform, police said.
……Brinsley’s criminal record stretched back to at least 2004 and included a string of arrests in Georgia and Ohio. In Georgia’s Fulton County alone, Brinsley was arrested nine times over the past decade on charges including simple battery, criminal trespassing, carrying a concealed weapon, obstruction of a law enforcement officer and shoplifting, according to the Baltimore Sun.
NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio, who is a fringe-dwelling moonbat to begin with, quickly aligned himself with the same protestors who marched through NYC, chanting “What do we want? Dead cops! When do we want it? Now!”
Al Sharpton, who makes his living exploiting race riots, the leftwing media, Eric Holder, the racially-biased corrupt Attorney General, and B. Hussein Obama, who never misses an opportunity to give lectures on the “legacy of racial discrimination in this country” while he selectively ignores the black on white hate crimes and the crimes perpetrated by blacks on each other in their own communities, finally got what they wished for.
