Second-guessing cops threatens safety

On May 2, a young NYPD officer from the 105th Precinct was viciously shot and killed while on patrol in an unmarked car in Queens Village. We mourn and pray for the family of 25-year-old Brian Moore. The attack unfolded after two officers seated in their unmarked car spotted a man whom they knew to have a long police rap sheet. The officers witnessed this man making a furtive movement (adjusting his waistband suspiciously) and proceeded to follow him in their vehicle. The suspect suddenly turned and fired on Officer Moore.
