END OF WATCH: Saturday, December 20, 2014



Protests and marches are a noble and dignified way to bring attention to the government and society about our grievances. When we turn to rioting and violence we lose the message and we create a scenario where people who are criminally minded rationalize looting and mayhem behind a smoke screen of indignity.
Two New York City police officers were shot and killed ambush-style Saturday afternoon as they sat in their patrol car in Brooklyn, Police Commissioner William Bratton said. The gunman approached the passenger side of the patrol car and opened fire several times, fatally wounding officers Wenjian Liu, 32 and Rafael Ramos, 40.
The Garner and Brown families would not condone the murder of these officers in the name of their slain husbands, fathers and sons. People on the street are pushing back, yes even African Americans do not support these acts. One local woman was heard to say "Where is your humanity? I know it's a war going on and shoutout to Eric Garner's family and everybody else who lost somebody, but you're not at his house, on his lawn. This is two (officers). You don't even know if (they were) good or bad. I don't condone this, and I'm not with it."
To say that all cops are bad is exactly the same problem we minorities have with our reputations. It’s like saying all Latinos are drug dealers and all African Americans are brutal thugs. It is not correct.
There are so many Law Enforcement officers out there that love their job and love the people they protect.
How many cops ran to their deaths into the Twin Towers on 9/11?  They were heroes back then. People held up signs saying God Bless You in the days after the attack as they drove towards Ground Zero day after day to search for the remains of victims and their fallen comrades. Many of those have subsequently died from exposure to the toxic materials they were exposed to.
Use your search engines and look at how every day Law Enforcement save lives and rarely make the headlines.  How many die every day showing up when people need help.
These men will take that 3rd tour at 11:00pm and drive around the dark of night for us till the crack of dawn. The next crew will get up at 4:30-5:00am to get to work at 7:00 in full uniform.  They don’t make a lot of money for it, they wanted to be cops.
I am deeply saddened by the coldblooded, senseless assassination of these brothers. The sick person that committed these acts is no hero, I will not repeat his name, and he should not receive recognition for this shameful disgusting act and remain anonymous.
My condolences to officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos’ families may they find peace and resignation
