NYPD Officer Miosotis Familia was murdered in the line of duty by Alexander Bonds in the Bronx. She was killed because she was a police officer. I find this a most appalling crime that should not have happened.

This demented individual forgot officer Familia was out there protecting all persons, including Bonds, who had a history of criminal activities. Here was a police officer who was dedicated to her three children and the community which she served with pride and dedication. Familia worked for the Red Cross and also as a nurse before starting her career with the NYPD.

It is a sad state of affairs when those who protect us are losing their lives across the country at an alarming rate by those who have no regard for law and order. These police officers go out everyday trying to do what is right, protecting life and property, and yet don’t know if they will return home or unharmed.

Let me also point out, in my opinion, that the anti-cop rhetoric that spread vilification of cops as racist killers is just wrong.

It's much too obvious that timesledger did not post any article on the officer's reprehensible murder nor that dumb-blasio did not attend her funeral. Not a wonder that timesledger has to pay for "likes" on facebook.
