The family of NYPD police officer Rafael Ramos have said they forgive Ismaaiyl Brinsley for shooting and killing Ramos and his partner officer, Wenjian Liu. Ramos’ cousin Ronnie Gonzalez said, “we don’t believe in vengeance, we just forgive,” saying Brinsley was “in God’s hands now” and that the family wanted to remember Ramos instead of the shooter.
Brinsley told two people, “watch what I’m about to do” and told them to follow him on Instagram before he posted a threatening photo. He then shot his ex-girlfriend near Baltimore, before killing Romas and Liu in Brooklyn and shooting and killing himself at a nearby subway station.
Ismaaiyl Brinsley posted a chilling message on Twitter before creeping up behind a cop car and shooting two police officers dead execution style. He left his house in New York City at about 3PM with a gun in his hand, shot both men dead, and then went to a nearby subway station and shot himself in the head.
Brinsely posted the terrifying tweet, “I’m putting wings on pigs today. They take 1 of ours, let’s take of theirs. #ShootThePolice #RIPErivGarner (sic) #RIPMikeBrown This may be my final post. I’m putting pigs in a blanket.” His tweet was sent only two hours before his attack.
ISIS have released photos from a public amputation in Syria. The Islamic State’s court found the man guilty of theft, and his punishment was for one of his hand’s to be chopped off. A large crowd gathered to watch the gruesome event, with some even standing on their cars to get a better look.
Other brutal “punishments” handed out by ISIS were a man who was crucified for reportedly “spying” on the terrorist organization, and three men who were publicly whipped in Kirkuk, Iraq for drinking wine. Large crowds, including numerous children, gathered for both events as well.
