That's so sad my thoughts go to the families of the officers.

Two NYPD officers shot dead in 'ambush' sitting in patrol car in Brooklyn by gunman who boasted on Instagram about 'revenge' killing cops 

Two NYPD cops were executed Saturday after a gang member from Baltimore drove to the city to kill police officers after wounding his girlfriend, sources told the Daily News.

The shooter, identified as Ismaaiyl Brinsley, 28, boasted about wanting to kill cops in the hours before he ambushed the officers outside the Tompkins Houses in Bedford-Stuyvesant about 3 p.m. Saturday.

“I’m Putting Wings On Pigs Today. They Take 1 Of Ours...Let’s Take 2 of Theirs,” Brinsley wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of a silver handgun and a series of hashtags referencing the deaths of Eric Garner and Michael Brown. 

Brinsley made good on his promise, firing several rounds into the patrol car parked near Myrtle and Tompkins Aves., witnesses said.

“The perp came out of the houses, walked up behind the car and lit them up,” a high-ranking police official told the Daily News.

Brinsley then sprinted around the corner to the Myrtle-Willoughby Aves. subway station where he shot himself in the head, police said. He was later pronounced dead.

Both officers were rushed to Woodhull Hospital but were later pronounced dead.

Witnesses said the officers never had a chance.

“He just walked up and shot that cop in the head,” one man said.

Rescuers rushed to the aid of the mortally wounded officers.

“They basically dragged two cops out their car,” a second witness said. “I saw it. One was shot in the face. There was blood coming out of his face.”

Brinsley is believed to be a member of a Baltimore gang, Black Guerilla Family, sources said. The gang has vowed retribution for the deaths of Garner and Brown. Garner died after being put in a chokehold by NYPD Officer Daniel Pantaleo on July 17 on Staten Island. Brown, who was unnarmed, was shot dead by Ferguson, Mo. cop Darren Wilson on Aug. 9th. Neither cop was indicted by grand juries, sparking national protests.  

“I have spoken to the Garner family and we are outraged by the early reports of the police killed in Brooklyn today," said the Rev. Al Sharpton in a statement Saturday evening. "Any use of the names of Eric Garner and Michael Brown, in connection with any violence or killing of police, is reprehensible and against the pursuit of justice in both cases.

I hope there is one ounce of decency left in Mayor deBlasio, and that he stays the hell away from these officers' funerals.

Not until race baiting, shake down con artists like Al Sharpton cease to exist.  Maybe after the great race divider in the WH is gone, we can get back to getting along with each other for the most part, as it was before Obama came on the scene.

Too bad the slime ball offed himself.  This is one time I'd like to see a murderer spend the rest of his pathetic life in prison.  Imagine what happens to cop killers in prison.

Yeah, I can see that, that he should be in prison for the rest of his sorry life.  However, I think what he did is much better than letting him have a trial where we can hear all about his poor troubled childhood and then pay millions just to keep him alive for the remainder of his days.  So, while I would like to see him get some kind of punishment, I am quite pleased with his self-termination.
