GOTR’s hearts and prayers are with the families of NYPD officers Ramos and Liu

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.

This isn’t “revenge.” This was the cold-blooded murder of NYPD officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu. There’s no justification for it. Regardless of how one feels about Garner, Brown, Rice, or anyone else, this is wrong and neither of these officers deserved this. No good can come of it and one can only hope this isn’t a sign of things to come.
