Cop Hater Kills Two Brooklyn Police; NY Times Obfuscates Motive

Barb Wire

Michelle Malkin: “Sickos on the Left have been stoking hatred against cops for months now in the wake of Ferguson and explicitly calling for their murder.” They finally got what they wanted Saturday when a cop-hater named Ismaaiyl Abdulah Brinsley shot his ex-girlfriend near Baltimore, posted anti-cop messages on social media and drove to New York where he murdered two NYPD officers in an ambush in Bedford-Stuyvesant. The cop-killer then killed himself. The killer participated in anti-police protests and, in his social media messages, referenced both the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson and the death of Eric Garner in New York. However, Weasel Zippers points out that the New York Times is attempting to obscure Brinsley’s motive by depicting him as “random crazy.” Liberals never accept responsibility for the evil results of liberalism, because the whole point of liberalism is the evasion of personal responsibility.
