12.20.14: Two NYPD Officers Killed in Brooklyn

The murders of New York Police officers, Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu, was a horrific act of atrocious violence by killer, Ismaaiyl Brinsley. Brinsley also shot his girlfriend, Shaneka Thompson, who is in critical condition, and later killed himself; after killing officer Ramos and officer Liu.

Prayers and condolences go out to the families of Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu during this difficult time.

I have to speak on the dangerous narrative that is coming from many after these devastating murders. Folks are trying to blame Mayor Bill de Blasio, Al Sharpton, and the peaceful nationwide protests that have been going on in the hope of stopping police brutality...in the wake of the no indictment decisions in both the Michael Brown case and Eric Garner case.

It is irresponsible for people in key positions to take the tone that has been unleashed. There is only one person responsible for this horrible crime and that is the disturbed man who pulled the trigger. No one else.
