Letter: Murder of two officers shouldn’t have happened

Murder of two officers shouldn’t have happened

After nearly a month of protests and civil unrest nationwide, two New York Police Department officers were hunted down and assassinated in broad daylight. These two men were murdered for no other reason than being uniformed police officers. This tragedy should never have happened.

Between the radical leaders of the protests and the politicians and even some media outlets, they kept stirring the pot. It culminated with a coward gunning down Police Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Lin. These heroes leave behind families and friends to try to grasp the devastation caused by such hatred of police officers.

Enough is enough! We should not be targets for murder just because we are police officers.
