Just in the past week, the Patrolman's Benevolent Association, the union of the NYPD, was collecting signatures of members who wanted to make a statement that should they be killed in the line of duty, Mayor Bill de Blasion should not attend their funeral. Today, two NYPD officers were ambushed by a lone gunman as they sat in their patrol car. They have both died of their injuries. The gunman committed suicide.
I will withhold comment until we know more about the gunman and his motive.
