I hope the race-baiters who spent the past few months stirring the pot, convincing all the gullible fools that police are out to kill black people, are happy. They wanted to stir up a race war. Now we've got one.

That's a bit harsh. In the case of Ferguson there were inconsistencies in the grand jury that even the prosecutor admits to.

He said on his social messaging before the attack that he was going to put "wings on pigs" in revenge for Brown and Garner. And such attacks have not happened in NYC in decades.

And you offer that as justification? Shame on you. Even if there were issues, there is NO evidence - zero, zip, nada - that the Ferguson shooting had anything to do with Brown being black - a white guy doing the same would have also been shot. But the race-baiters and their enablers got on their soap-boxes and fed the fires. The result: crowds chanting "What do we want? Dead cops! When do we want it? Now!". And of course these two cops.

When will people learn that race-baiting is a BUSINESS? There is nothing noble about it. They are not out to correct any injustices. They don't give a shit about injustice. Sharpton and his ilk make money from it. Thanks to his efforts, he is now a close advisor to the NYC Mayor, and now, he claims, a part of the Sony Pictures management team.

Doesn't matter. I've seen plenty of white students on the race-baiters' bandwagon. The point is that they have drummed up a cause (as phoney as it may be) for people to rally on, and they feel justified in attacking cops, looting etc. The race of the victims or perps is irrelevant.

Actually, he can. Because the victims are police officers and the police department is a symbol of white authority. The race of the police officer is unimportant. I suspect that 2 black officers would have been just as valid a target as 2 white officers. It is the uniform that matters.

It's the CAUSE that has caused some people (of all races who jump on it) to act like animals. This whole thing started because race-baiters tried to paint a picture that cops are "out to kill black men wherever they can". Idiots who believe this are in all races.

Dreadnought, this is your typical drumbeat. You tell me "I didn't say all" but then you immediately act like you mean all.

The fact remains clear if you care enough to open your eyes - despite your deep deep desire to blame DeBlasio, or Sharpton, or whatever liberal gets your panties in a bunch, this is the act of a criminal that hates cops, and didn't need DeBlasio or Sharpton to tell him to commit his crime.

You would be much better placed putting this on Wilson or Robert McCulloch, but that doesn't align with your politics, so you made this some bs race war thing.

I heard the beginning of the press conference and I have so much to say. But, first, from just the names of the officers, they were minorities. One Asian and one Latino.

Now, what I need to say:

I do not condone killing at all in any way, shape, or form period.

Keeping that in mind and that I am about to play the most extreme Devil's Advocate:

What were people like that doing in that neighborhood? Why did they have to be wearing those flashy clothes? If they hadn't provoked the shooter, they would be alive. Don't they know that people like them raise suspicion anyway? The shooter was the victim in all of this.

Any of those sound familiar?

Let me be perfectly clear because I know more than one person will completely misunderstand me: I do not condone killing at all. The whole "well, if he is Black/cop, he must be guilty of something, so we need to be violent against him" thing is wrong and stupid.

But, think about it: so much energy has been put into "well, he was Black, so he must be guilty of something" by the media someone was bound to snap. It does not surprise me cops were killed and does not advance the better agenda of getting police to be less of a military and more of a helping unit. And it does not surprise me that people are saying "Jackson and Sharpton will not do anything to support cops!" Well, why should they? Cops are doing very little to support Blacks, other than follow them and make sure they keep their place.

Again: I do not condone murder at all ever for any reason period.

Another thing I find interesting in listening to the news conference: The NYPD conducted an investigation and concluded XYZ happened. All within a few hours. They know all the details and where everything happened and why and it was all wrapped up in a neat little package all within a few hours. Meanwhile, any police who shoot an unarmed (usually Black) person, the investigation takes months and is done by the police and, in the end, the police were well within their rights to kill the unarmed (usually Black) person. Anyone else see something wrong with that picture?

If you recall, many had officer Wilson convicted before anyone knew who he was, of murder no less. And many had declared Mike Brown to be basically a perfect kid, before it came out that he was minutes beyond committing a felony. Nobody waited to start breaking windows.

This case seems to have fewer moving parts in terms of witnesses or physical evidence. If those investigations turn up anything surprising, I'm sure we'll hear about it in roughly the same timeframe.

To me the murderer of these police officer was mentally/psychologically ill. That he then killed himself shortly after his acts of murder further suggests that. The killer knew this was going to get massive local and national publicity, especially in the current context of the terrible relationship of police and persons of dark skin. He murderer also knew, like too many of those who commit political, mass/multiple victim murder that it would get a lot of medial attention and a lot of perverse glory for him after he died.

Also disturbing to me is the behaviors of some police officers and their union officials who have shown disrespect to the Mayor, their boss. In large part that is due to orders by the Mayor to end the far too often racially profiled use of 'stop and frisk' by NYPD which deeply offended far too many Black men. Many cops and their union leaders are also angry with years without raises in pay and having to pay more toward their benefits. Mayor DiBlasio is the Mayor of all New Yorkers not just for the police and made decisions in the best interests of all in his city, to reduce the use of a practice that causes the hostility toward the police that in part leads to murders like this.

These 2 police officers were murdered in cold blood. The last time a NYPD officer was killed on duty was about 3 years ago with an armed robber. The murdered cops were on an assigned duty to try to reduce crime at a housing project to try to make things a little safer for their largely non-white and poor residents. I expect 2 huge funerals with 1000's of police officers in uniform attending them. I just hope they act with dignity and respect to their fallen comrades and not use their deaths for personal political reasons.

Garner's death can also be directly related to the Mayor's orders to strictly enforce the ban on "loosies" sales (sales of loose - generally tax-unpaid or out of state - cigarettes) because loosies represent a loss to city tax revenue. The cops have repeatedly claimed that they have no interest in enforcing this truly victimless "crime", but they were under orders.

I feel that this will become the norm and the sensitivity between the cops and protestors will only fuel incidents like this. It also doesn't help that the media has been fueling a hate war against cops along with Sharpton and his cronies chanting death to the police during the protests rallies. Social media like Twitter spurns a lot of hate towards the cops in general even with this shooting which proves how divided our country has become.

There was an shooting in San Diego a while ago that closely resembles the NYPD shooting.

How is this connected to the race war?

I hope the race-baiters who spent the past few months stirring the pot, convincing all the gullible fools that police are out to kill black people, are happy. They wanted to stir up a race war. Now we've got one.

Here's a quote I read on Twitter from a journalist:

"Weird how the same folks who claim protest rhetoric caused police killings are now using incredibly overheated rhetoric to blame protesters."
"If I don't manage to fly, someone else will. The spirit wants only for there to be flying. As for who happens to do it, in that he has only a passing interest."

Sky News Breaking: Another Police Officer killed in Florida.

I'm waiting for all those righteous and moral people who protested to start again but this time for the rights of innocent police officers brutally murdered. Oh wait.

Condolences to the families and friends of all these officers.

Oh, please. You pretend to support those cops now, but you'd stab them in the back tomorrow if it gets you a tax cut. The irony of conservatives beating their chests about how they support cops, but then turning around and complaining about the evils of government and taxes.

Stop being so delusional. 1) Police is a local responsibility, not federal - it is federal spending we have an issue with. Local government tends to try to live within their means, because a) residents can choose to leave if taxes are too high, and b) they can't simply print money. This is why conservatives like the idea of maximizing state and local responsibility for government and minimizing it at the federal level. 2) We like the rule of law. Police, fire departments and such services are among the most fundamental services for which we need government, unlike, let's say, a federal education bureau (especially when since its inception it has had a negative effect on education).

So you think it's fine to sell drugs to children? That's where many of these loosies are going.

I call BS on that. 1) Do you have any evidence that Garner was selling to children? 2) The state of NY charges $4.35 per pack, and the city charges another $1.60 per pack. Virginia (a big tobacco-producing state, BTW) only charges $0.30 per pack. Closer to NYC PA and DE both charge $1.60. Of course that leads to massive smuggling, mainly not to children, but to adults who don't want to pay an extra $50 per carton. High excise taxes lead to big smuggling problems - that has been a constant truism for hundreds of years.

I agree my use of the term "race war" was overinflammatory, in the sense that we are not in one. My apologies. However I stand by my conviction that a race war is exactly what the likes of Sharpton want, and that if it were not for all this super-heated anti-police rhetoric, these officers would still be alive.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dj4ARsxrZh8

"What do we want? Dead cops! When do we want it? Now!". That sort of incitement is just about guaranteed to convince the odd asshole to go ahead and do it.

I do not doubt that many (if not most) of the protesters wanted to peacefully express their anger without inciting anyone to violence. But if you are in such a protest, and you hear someone try to get the crowd to chant shit like that, or start pulling out hammers and masks to start looting and burning, you have 3 choices:

1) Leave - refuse to participate any longer.
2) Beat the shit out of those who are trying to use your peaceful demonstration to cause trouble.
3) Do nothing and just stand around - in which case you are morally condoning what's going on.

I hope US police forces will take whatever measures needed to protect good, law abiding citizen from bunch of criminal ghetto losers. This whole hate campaign towards American police forces is nothing but a racist attempt to defend criminals who happen to have a certain ethnic and genetic background.

The only "race war" is between black supremacists and everyone else.

Hardly. Lots of conservatives rant about local government spending and police pensions/overtime costs. Conservatives are no friend of the police, they just pretend to be when it's politically convenient.

Quoting Dreadnought (Reply 41):

Do you have any evidence he wasn't? No and that's the problem. We don't know who he is selling to hence the crime isn't necessarily so "victimless" as you claim. You also don't know where some of his profits are eventually trickling back up to...organized crime, gangs, etc.

Quoting Dreadnought (Reply 41):

Sorry, but the most massive smuggling/trafficking rings revolve around illegal drugs (not taxed at all), prostitutes (not taxed at all) and guns (taxed minimally). Taxes aren't the problem in any of these areas.

Disgusting behavior that hopegully will not go unpunished.

The perpetrator killed himself after committing the crime. Not sure how you punish a corpse..

Talking about Sharpton and the media and their beating the war drums against the police that may have helped push this guy over the edge. Obama,Holder and Sharpton are all guilty of inflamming this situation and it was only a metter of time before something like this would happen.

This isn't a guy with a brick of cocaine in the trunk blasting the cop who pulled him over for speeding. This guy specifically targeted police and set out to kill some for political reasons. That's terrorism.

This, Mir hi the nail on the head.

No, it's not terrorism - you can't just throw that word around whenever you don't like what someone does. It's just a lunatic with a grudge against police acting on it.

I don't see a cop being killed in the line of duty in the US as much different from a soldier being killed in action, both knew the risks when they signed up. The US is full of guns, it has lousy gun control laws, so a cop must expect that during his/her career there is a chance that they may be shot and killed on duty. It's sucks for the cop and their family but they should be realistic about the risks in the environment they choose to be a cop in.

To me the murderer of these police officer was mentally/psychologically ill. That he then killed himself shortly after his acts of murder further suggests that. The killer knew this was going to get massive local and national publicity, especially in the current context of the terrible relationship of police and persons of dark skin. He murderer also knew, like too many of those who commit political, mass/multiple victim murder that it would get a lot of medial attention and a lot of perverse glory for him after he died.

Let's face it, after what he did there was no way he was getting out of that subway station alive, one way or another.

Quoting ltbewr (Reply 34):
Also disturbing to me is the behaviors of some police officers and their union officials who have shown disrespect to the Mayor, their boss.

Respect is something you earn, not something you should be immediately expected to have as a function of your position.

Quoting ltbewr (Reply 34):
These 2 police officers were murdered in cold blood. The last time a NYPD officer was killed on duty was about 3 years ago with an armed robber.

Not true, that was the last time one NYPD officer was shot and killed - a couple of years ago there was one that was thrown off a staircase and died.
