This is chilling stuff.
Two NYPD officers were tragically executed in Brooklyn on Saturday, and the shooter has been reportedly identified as Ismaaiyl Brinsley.
Brinsley was reportedly a gang member form Baltimore who wounded his girlfriend after he shot her in the stomach. He then drove to New York City to kill the police. He posted some Instagrams before the shooting, warning people of what he planned to do.
One of the two graphic images (above) said:
"I'm Putting Wings On Pigs Today. They Take 1 Of Ours…Let's Take 2 of Theirs #ShootThePolice #RIPErivGardner #RIPMikeBrown This May Be My Final Post I'm Putting Pigs In A Blanket"
His Instagram account has now been deactivated. Witnesses all said that the officers never stood a chance and that this was an ambush.
This is so horrible. We're at a loss for words.
