We were all saddened and shocked by the execution-style shooting of Police Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos yesterday in Brooklyn. Our condolences go to the family and their fellow police officers.
It's time for us to show support not only for the officers who died in the line of duty, but for all our officers who risk their lives every day.
If you support the NYPD we're asking folks to tie blue ribbons outside of your homes. We believe this is a silent but positive way to let them know we care.
Let's be united and stand behind those who protect our families, homes and community!
