Why Two New York Cops Were Killed

I struggle to even use tragic story for the selfish reason of supporting my position.

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 ­assassination-style mission to avenge Eric Garner and Michael Brown.

Two innocent people who died simply because they chose to devote their lives to the safety and well being of others deserve better.  Their grieving family and loved ones deserve better.  Something seems wrong with me using this story for an example, but something seems worse about me ignoring it.

Often, when a murder takes place, the question of why the crime was committed, adds to the pain and grief of the living.  We don’t have that here.  Everyone knows why this crime happened.

It happened because the media mindlessly gave attention to people who were only interested in getting attention.

It happened because people who due to their positions, should have acted responsibly and respected our judicial system, but did not.

It happened because media personalities attempted to downplay the seriousness of violent actions that were only one or two levels of evil, below killing.

It happened because the media is not only biased, they are outright liars.

It happened because athletes sided with violent thugs instead of the police and our justice system.

It happened because celebrities sided with violent thugs instead of the police and our justice system.

It happened because community organizers are really just self promoters,

and it happened because we had a president who encouraged all of these people to "Stay the course."

This wasn’t revenge, this wasn’t an eye for an eye.  This was murder.  Even the most ardent supporters of the “justice” for Michael Brown/Eric Garner protesters, cannot claim that the cops just snuck up and executed either one of them.

Even though none of the people I mentioned above pulled the trigger on those two New York cops, they are definitely responsible for getting (and keeping) this ball rolling, and it’s not going to stop here.  We haven’t seen the last of this, and the blood is on their hands.

Now watch, as the cowardly leftists scramble to distance themselves from the evil that grew out of the seeds they have sown.



  1. "Now watch, as the cowardly leftists scramble to distance themselves from the evil that grew out of the seeds they have sown."

    Yes! And they will pin it (successfully) on any conservative or libertarian who is concerned about the militarization of police nationwide, the spread of unpunished and unpunishable acts of police brutality, and the exponential increase in infringements of individual rights by the law, those who enforce the law, and the courts (i.e., all 3 branches of government).

    Be aware that this is not a coincidence.

    1. Excellent comment. I couldn't have said it better than you did.

  2. This shooting is the outcome of a lot of factors at play.
    The fundamental reason the two officers were shot is because of the uniform they wore.
    Just as a Taliban fighter will do his best to kill ANYONE wearing a western military uniform
    because to the Taliban that uniform personifies THE ENEMY. To MANY people now the
    uniform of LEO personifies a threat, an enemy, someone who if given the opportunity will
    harass, assault and if possible imprison you simply BECAUSE THEY CAN. The anger that
    blacks in general and lately others feel towards LEO has a very real foundation....a foundation
    based upon the conduct that LEO exhibits.

    In this case the shooter was angered over the death of a black man for the faux crime of selling cigarettes....i.e. NOT PAYING TAXES. But we forget.....Mr. Garner bought those cigarettes in a store and PAID A TAX ON THEM. But that isn't good enough for the state.
    The state wanted MORE....so they charged their hired muscle with insuring they GOT MORE.
    And if that required using force against Mr. Garner...up to and including his death then to the state....THAT'S OK. And THAT IS WRONG. That mentality makes EVERY ACTION that EVERY CITIZEN undertakes a potential capital offense....an action for which the state might kill you. In this case the shooter got SO MAD at the NYPD he chose to take a little personal revenge. One can argue the morality of it all day but only a fool would refuse to acknowledge that the fuse was lit by the actions of the NYPD.

    Race is for the most part not the actual issue, at least not when it comes to LEO conduct...or more accurately misconduct. The vast majority of LEO really don't care what color you are.
    White, black, red, brown, yellow.....doesn't matter. The only color that matters is BLUE as in you aren't part of our official gang so you don't count. Thus they will open a can of whoopass and hand out a beat down to ANYONE regardless of color who does not offer up instant and adequate obedience to the god of the badge. Race is irrelevant. The "race" issue is only being touted by the professional race baiters from Obama on down who are conflating the issue for their own personal agenda.

    1. Check out the first comment above. I can't come up with anything better to add to this conversation, than what he said.
