    And Now, the Assassination of Two Police Officers

    Tragically, it seemed almost inevitable. After weeks of protests across the nation decrying aggressive police behavior, two New York City officers were ambushed and “assassinated” in broad daylight as they sat in their patrol car on a Brooklyn street. The shooting was random. The officers killed were not related in any way... more...
