The police department is a big part of our community safety.
We should never underestimate the work they do, but that is often the case.
A shocking event happened today, and we all had our hearts broken.
A female police officer had been assassinated earlier this week while sitting in her patrol car. The murder happened at around 12:30 a.m. There was a bystander at the scene, and even he got shot in the stomach. He is now in a safe condition at a hospital, as his shot was not fatal. Everything happened really quick, so in the next few minutes the killer was shot and killed by two officers. The reason for him being shot was him drawing a full revolver.
It is really sad losing a Veteran NYPD officer. Her name, as reported by Western Journalism was Miosotis Familia. She had been serving the department for more than 12 years, and the motive for her murder is still being investigated.
It did not came from nowhere though, as the murderer – Alexander Bonds had previously posted a lot of negative comments against policemen on his social media accounts. He was an already convicted criminal and had a résumé filled with everything, from parking tickets to fights.
A lot of people had something to say from respect to the officer. Sources report that she:
“Was quiet and very into her family, adored her children. She was a good cop and well liked by everyone who worked with her.”
This is not a person who should have been targeted.
Patrick Lynch spoke of her as a real hero. This is high praise from the head of the Patrolmen Association:
“Police officer Miosotis Familia, the mother of three, gave her life protecting a neighborhood that had been plagued by gang gun violence. Fully knowing the dangers that she faced, she suited up in uniform everyday and stood tall against those who threaten and terrorize the good folks of the Bronx. Police officer Familia now joins the exclusive ranks of women who have heroically served and died in the line of duty. We will keep her in our hearts and minds as we do all of the women and men who have made the ultimate sacrifice for the city they loved.”
This is a really sad story revolving around an innocent police officer. We hope her colleagues get to the middle of this case, finding out why it happened.
