The protests called for by MSNBC Host and racial agitator Al Sharpton are having their effect. Last Saturday's NYC protest two police lieutenants were attacked, one had his nose broken. This Saturday two police offices were shot execution style by a crazy man who wanted revenge for the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner.
According to the NYPost
The lone gunman, identified by sources as Ismaaiyl Brinsley, 28, who had addresses in Georgia and Brooklyn.
Brinsley walked up to the cops’ patrol car at the corner of Myrtle and Tompkins avenues, approaching from the sidewalk.
Witnesses told police that Brinsley wordlessly blasted into the patrol car’s front passenger-side window.
Then he stood stock still for a few moments, fleeing into the subway only when he heard the sirens of a second police car.
Once in the subway, “they engaged the guy and he did himself,” one investigator said.
Investigators believe the gunman posted a threatening message on a social media account before the shooting, according to one law enforcement source.
The suspect is believed to have shot and injured his girlfriend in Baltimore before coming to New York, the source said.
“I’m Putting Wings on Pigs Today,” a person believed to be the gunman wrote on Instagram in a message posted just three hours before the officers were shot.At least one of the officers was shot in the head, police said. Both were taken to Woodhull Medical Center where they passed away
“They Take 1 Of Ours…Let’s Take 2 of Theirs,” the post continued, signing off with, “This May Be My Final Post.”
The Instagram page included an image of a silver automatic handgun with a wooden handle. Another image showed the same camouflage pants and distinctive blue sneakers worn by the gunman as his body was carried from the scene on a stretcher.
He used the hashtag #ShootThePolice, along with two other hashtags referencing Garner and Brown.
Al Sharpton tweeted out:
I am outraged at the killing of 2 police officers in Brooklyn. That is why we stress non violence as the only way to fight for justice.Sure Al, tell that to the families' of the cops and the seven people you killed at Freddy's Fashion Mart.

Congrats Al Sharpton, you may have not pulled the trigger, but as sure as hell, just as you did with Roland James Smith, Jr 19 years ago in Harlem, you incited the hatred that made one crazy man kill two cops.
