On December 20, 2014, in the name of revenge for the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner, black Muslim jihadist Ismaaiyl Brinsley (which means “servant of allah”), 28, ambushed and shot to death New York Police Department Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu.
Officer Rafael Ramos, a 40-year-old married father of two sons, had joined the NYPD two years ago and was only a short time from becoming a lay church chaplain. Officer Wenjian Liu, 32, a 7-year veteran of the NYPD, left a wife and two parents. He was their only child. (WSJ)
Yesterday, ignoring NY mayor Bill de Blasio’s plea for racial protests to stop until after Ramos’ and Liu’s funerals, protesters “against racism and police violence” packed sidewalks in New York.
ANSWER Coalition, the organizers of the protest, said there was no reason to “give in to hysteria” by calling off the demonstration.
As the protesters marched past shops on New York’s storied Fifth Avenue, some protesters chanted “Hey-hey, ho-ho. These racist cops have got to go” and “How do you spell racist? N-Y-P-D.”; others carried signs saying “Jail killer cops” and “Stop the war on Black America.” (CNN)
They say a picture is worth a thousands words.
Here are “three thousand words.”
