Hey, Al Sharpton, just wondering when you were planning to march for NYPD Officer Brian Moore who was shot in the head and died from his injuries. 35-year-old Demitrius Blackwell is charged with the shooting of Moore.
Are you maybe planning on going to the killer’s court date instead? Shameful.
New York mourned another fallen police officer Tuesday as authorities sought a first-degree murder charge against a man accused of killing Officer Brian Moore. The thug is black, the officer was white – should that matter? No, but I wake up everyday being told there’s an epidemic of white officers shooting innocent young black men.
So I guess it matters… Not to Obama, Sharpton, Holder or the press. Their reports don’t mention race because the colors are wrong, according to their narrative that’s it’s whites shooting blacks – not the other way around.
Moore, 25, had been in critical condition since Saturday when he and a fellow officer were shot at while trying to question a man in Queens.
Moore was struck in the head; the other officer was uninjured.
Flags at city and state of New York government buildings will be flown at half-staff in memory of Moore until his interment Friday.
“Officer Moore put his life on the line in order to protect his fellow New Yorkers, and our state is a better place because of him,” Gov. Andrew Cuomo said in a statement. “Like so many of his brothers and sisters in uniform, Officer Moore served with selflessness and courage, and he will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.”
A somber collection of family, friends and fellow officers stood silently Tuesday as the body of slain NYPD Officer Brian Moore arrived at a Long Island funeral home.
An NYPD ambulance drove beneath a giant American flag draped between two Bethpage Fire Department truck ladders as it delivered the cop’s remains to Fredrick J. Chapey & Sons Funeral Home.
Nassau County police vehicles, along with NYPD cars, provided an escort, while blue ribbons donated by a local florist hung on sign posts along the route.
Among the 50 people gathered outside on a warm spring afternoon was Moore’s partner, Officer Erik Jansen — who declined to speak.
Annie Tyrie, 25, and sister Kiely Tyrie, 30, knew Moore from growing up in the area. Both women wound up working with Moore in the NYPD.
“He was a very nice guy,” said Annie Tyrie, on the job three years and assigned to the 102nd Precinct in Queens. “He was just that guy who was always a good friend.”
The Moore family remained silent as they came and went from their North Massapequa home in the hours before their final farewell to the 25-year-old cop.
Moore’s wake was set for 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9:30 p.m. Thursday at the Bethpage home, followed by an 11 a.m. Friday funeral at St. James Catholic Church in Seaford, L.I.
