PoPo Got The Strap: NYPD Officer Told Cops To Shoot 50 Cent On Sight, Under Investigation

Celebrity Sightings In New York City - January 09, 2019

Seems like 50 Cent has at least one cop who wouldn’t mind putting a slug in him. Reportedly, an NYPD is under investigation for telling fellow officers to shoot the Queens rapper on sight.

Well damn.

Reports the New York Daily News:

A Brooklyn precinct commander is being investigated by the NYPD for allegedly threatening the celebrity’s life — telling his officers at a roll call to “shoot him on sight,” the Daily News has learned.

Deputy Inspector Emanuel Gonzalez, the commanding officer of the 72nd Precinct in Sunset Park, allegedly made the threat last June 7, when the actor and “In Da Club” rapper was expected to attend an NYPD sanctioned boxing match in the Bronx.

During a roll call inside the 72nd Precinct stationhouse, Gonzalez told his officers if they saw 50 Cent at the boxing match, known as a smoker, they should “shoot him on sight,” a source with knowledge of the case said.

“The inspector just said that at roll call,” the source said. “I’m like WTF.”

Guess that Blue Wall of Silence isn’t so quiet. The Internal Affairs Bureau is investigating the incident.

But the real struggle is why Gonzalez suggested cops put a cap in the rapper. 50 Cent was talking ish on Instagram, and his followers came for Gonzalez.

A month before the roll call, Gonzalez filed an aggravated harassment complaint, claiming 50 Cent threatened him on Instagram.

The entertainer was commenting on a lawsuit first reported in the Daily News accusing Gonzalez of shaking down the owner of the Sunset Park club Love and Lust — one of 50 Cent’s favorite haunts — when he wrote “Get the strap,” a slang term for “get a gun.”

In the complaint he filed in the department, Gonzalez said several of 50 Cent’s 18 million followers responded with their own threats against the precinct leader, including “F–k this commander” and “Blast this fool,” leaving him “in fear of his safety.”

Chinx Was Killed Over 6 Year Beef With Rapper, Per NYPD

Last week, two men were finally arrested for the murder of Chinx. Details are emerging about what led to the French Montana-affiliated rapper’s death via a drive-by shooting in Queens. 

XXL spoke to  Lt. Richard Rudolph, Commanding Officer of the Queens South Homicide Squad, who offered up a theory the NYPD has about the shooting and murder.

Apparently, Chinx got into a fight with Quincy Homere, one of the men arrested for his death, while both were incarcerated in Rikers Island.

“We’re not exactly sure what the fight was about but our perpetrator Quincy probably got the worst of it and he wanted to get back at Chinx,” Rudolph told XXL.

He added, “When he saw Chinx’s career starting to blow, he took it real personal and figured that his [own] career was going south… It just festered inside of him.”

Rudolph also detailed how a verbal altercation outside a show in Philly is what probably led Homere, who was an aspiring rapper who went by Qwality, to exact fatal revenge. He also explained how Homere, the shooter, and his alleged accomplice, Jamar Hill, stalked Chinx the night he was killed.

NYPD Takes Suspect Into Custody After ‘Act of Terror’ in Lower Manhattan That Left Eight People Dead, and Injured at Least Twelve

NEW YORK — In what is being described as an act of terror, New York Police Department officials are still investigating an incident in lower Manhattan involving a vehicle that left eight people dead and injured more than a dozen.
In a press conference with NYPD Police Commissioner James O’Neill and FBI officials, as well as New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio described the incident as “an act of terror and a particularly cowardly act of terror aimed at innocent civilians going about their lives who had no idea what was about to hit them.”
The mayor continued, “We know that this act was intended to break our spirit but we also know that New Yorkers are strong, New Yorkers are resilient and our spirit will never be moved by an act of violence, an act meant to intimidate us. We have been tested before as a city very narthex site of today’s tragedy and New Yorkers do not give in in the face of these kids of actions. We will respond as we always do. We will be undeterred.”
De Blasio also asked all New Yorkers to be vigilant and “to live by the idea

Black NYPD Officers Gather For Rally In Support Of Colin Kaepernick

Colin Kaepernick‘s silent protest in 2016 began as a response to the uneven examples of how police of treated people of color in the country, sparking a debate most notably sustained by movements like Black Lives Matter. In support of Kaepernick’s goal and the speculation that NFL teams are refusing to hire the free-agent quarterback, dozens of NYPD officers gathered in New York over the weekend to rally around the former San Francisco 49ers star.

ESPN reports:

The gathering in Brooklyn featured about 75 mostly minority officers wearing black T-shirts reading “#imwithkap.”

One exception was retired officer Frank Serpico, whose exploits were featured in the 1973 film “Serpico.”

He admitted to not being a football fan but said he felt it was important to support Kaepernick for his stance.

“He’s trying to hold up this government, up to our founding fathers,” said Serpico, 81.

Current NYPD officer Sgt. Edwin Raymond organized the rally, according to a New York Times report. City Councilman Jumaane Williams of Brooklyn was among the speakers at the rally in the New York borough he represents.

NYPD Union Chief: Civilians “Not Qualified” To Criticize Cops

The president of the largest NYPD union has stepped up to defend the officer that roughed up Black retired tennis star, James BlakePatrick Lynch, president of the New York City Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, said in a written statement that critics of officer James Frascatore are “not qualified” to judge the actions of police officers during arrests.

As reported by Capital New York, Lynch issued a public statement addressed to “all of those inclined to jump to conclusions,” which seemed to be pointed most especially at the media. Lynch’s words were also sharply aimed others who have openly decried the NYPD’s record of police brutality, yet the union head stood by Frascatore despite his record of complaints filed by citizens he’s manhandled in the past.

From Capital New York:

In his letter, Lynch said Frascatore was being unfairly judged.

“If you have never struggled with someone who is resisting arrest or who pulled a gun or knife on you when you approached them for breaking a law, then you are not qualified to judge the actions of police officers putting themselves in harm’s way for the public good,” he wrote.

“The men and women of the NYPD are once again disheartened to read another knee-jerk reaction from ivory tower pundits who enjoy the safety provided by our police department without understanding the very real risks that we take to provide that safety,” Lynch also wrote.

Frascatore has been placed on modified duty amid an ongoing probe, officials have said.

Frascatore’s takedown of Blake, which was captured on hotel security video released by the NYPD last week, was criticized this morning by Ray Kelly, who led the NYPD for 12 years during the Michael Bloomberg administration. In an interview with WNYC’s Brian Lehrer, Kelly — no ally of Bratton or de Blasio — agreed that Frascetore’s behavior appeared inappropriate.

Raw Story reported that Blake’s attorney, Kevin Marino, responded by saying Lynch’s letter was “far more than nonsense” in a written response.

James Blake Says NYPD Thug Cop Needs To Be Fired

While retired Black tennis player James Blake has publicly eluded to the fact that the NYPD roughing him up last week was motivated by race, he spoke out in further detail about how he was treated. Blake is now calling for the firing of the thug cop that ran up to him and slammed him to the ground in front of a Manhattan hotel.

Blake sat down exclusively with the New York Post to speak about the incident that occurred on Sept. 9 as Blake was awaiting a ride to the U.S. Open to take part in a corporate event. Blake, a former top-five ranked tennis star, was assaulted by the police in a case of mistaken identity related to a credit card fraud sting. In his chat with the Post, Blake aimed pointed words at the officer and what his job status should be going forward.

From the New York Post:

“I don’t think he deserves to have a badge,” James Blake said of Officer James Frascatore, who body-slammed the athlete outside a Midtown hotel last week during a fraud takedown.

“I hope he can never do that to anyone else and get away with it,” Blake told The Post on Saturday. “I hope he can never do that again under the shield of the New York Police Department.”

Commissioner Bill Bratton and Mayor de Blasio apologized to him personally last week, but Blake, 35, wasn’t satisfied.

“There’s got to be more. That can’t be the end. It can’t be an apology and then we move on our way,” he said. “We need to do something about this never happening again, because the more I think about it, the more I get frustrated this could happen to someone I care about, not just me.

“I would welcome a meeting with the commissioner, with the mayor, with whoever else feels the need to speak about this. I would love to learn what their plan is.”

Officer Frascatore, 38, has a record of civilian complaints related to excessive force yet a relative told the Post that Blake’s claims were “absurd” and that the cop was being “railroaded” due to the tensions between police and people of color across the nation.

Naturally, the relative claims Frascatore is being unfairly judged and the incident doesn’t note his character. That same relative added that if Blake didn’t have celebrity status that the issue wouldn’t be front page news.

Blake, to his credit, gave compliments to the NYPD and called them “heroes” but was clear in not including Frascatore in that group.

CORRECTION: We mistakenly stated that Blake initially said race wasn’t a factor in his assault by the NYPD. We have since corrected our snafu. Our apologies.

James Blake Arrest Surveillance Video Released By NYPD

The surveillance footage of former pro tennis player James Blake being assaulted and wrongfully detained by NYPD has been released.

The video pretty much confirms what we already know; Blake was minding his business outside of his hotel when a plainclothes cop rolled up and manhandled him.

This particular cop, James Frascatore, has a track record of civilian complaints, yet it took this clip, and Blake being a high profile Black man, for the officer to actually be assigned to administrative duty.

Both the commissioner and the mayor of New York City have apologized to Blake.

NYPD Assaulted Retired Black Tennis Star James Blake

It looks like the NYPD and its overzealousness will be their undoing once more after five white officers allegedly assaulted Black retired tennis star, James Blake. Blake, a former top five world-ranked player, was thrown to the grown violently by the officers and suffered some minor cuts and bruises.

The incident took place Wednesday as Blake was awaiting a ride to head over to the U.S. Open for a corporate event. According to an exclusive interview Blake held with the New York Daily News, Blake was mistaken for another individual in an investigation of a credit card fraud case. Instead of the officers peacefully approaching Blake, he said an officer ran up on him and tackled him to the ground without an explanation or an apology after their gaffe.

The only reason the officers unhanded Blake was that a former officer alerted the NYPD of who Blake was. By then, the damage was done and now the city is hoping to contain the spiraling details of the assault as it investigates the matter internally.

From the New York Daily News:

Blake was waiting for a car taking him to the U.S. Open, where he was making corporate appearances for Time-Warner Cable.

“In my mind there’s probably a race factor involved, but no matter what there’s no reason for anybody to do that to anybody,” Blake said. “You’d think they could say, ‘Hey, we want to talk to you. We are looking into something.’ I was just standing there. I wasn’t running. It’s not even close (to be okay). It’s blatantly unnecessary.”

A police source said Blake was misidentified as a suspect wanted for buying a cellphone with a bogus credit card. A man who was standing near Blake was arrested in connection with the scam, police said.

“Once Blake was properly identified and found to have no connection to the investigation, he was released from police custody immediately,” the NYPD said in a statement.

“In regards to the alleged improper use of force, the Police Commissioner directed the internal affairs bureau to investigate.”

Anyone taking bets that those officers will have jobs by the end of the year or, by some miracle, are demoted to jockeying desks?

NYPD Sergeant Who Allegedly Raped 15-Year-Old Girl Commits Suicide

Joel Doseau, the 43-year-old NYPD sergeant who stood accused of raping a 15-year-old, has committed suicide earlier today inside his parent’s Brooklyn home. The incident has come just a couple of weeks after he was arrested for the crimes.

Reports NYDailyNews:

An NYPD sergeant accused of raping a 15-year-old girl took his own life Thursday, police sources said.

He asphyxiated himself by putting a plastic bag over his head inside the E. 80th St. home near Glenwood Road in Canarsie.

Doseau, 43, was arrested Aug. 5 for multiple counts of rape and other charges. He was freed on $ 100,000 bond.

In a 40-count indictment, a Brooklyn grand jury found that Doseau, who was assigned to Patrol Borough Brooklyn South, had an ongoing sexual relationship with the girl, now a woman in her early 20s, which started in 2008 when she was just 15, two years below the age of legal consent.

Sources said Doseau actually met the girl a year earlier, when she was just 14.

Doseau wooed the underage teen online, and lied to her about being more than twice her age, telling her he was younger than the 37 years he really was, sources said.

The girl believed him, according to the sources, and sent the police veteran nude photographs of herself.

The two allegedly had sex several times in an ongoing illicit relationship.Their contact included oral sex and sexual intercourse, according to court papers. The indictment said Doseau had sexual intercourse with the girl in the summers of 2008 and 2009 and that he initiated oral sex “without such person’s consent.”

Statutory rape scenarios result in probation and sexual offender registrations more often than not. Maybe Doseau overreacted a bit?

NYPD Officer Under Investigation, Accused Of Calling Woman A ‘F**king Dyke’ Before Assaulting Her

An NYPD officer is under investigation for a possible hate crime after a Brooklyn woman accused him of assaulting her and calling her homophobic slurs, a spokeswoman for the Brooklyn district attorney’s office told The Huffington Post Thursday.

Stephanie Dorceant, 29, was arrested in the early morning hours of July 11 in the Flatbush section of Brooklyn after allegedly assaulting NYPD Officer Salvator Aquino. She’s facing felony charges of assault as well as charges for menacing, resisting arrest and harassment.

But according to Dorceant, it was Aquino who attacked her. Through her attorneys, she supplied the following statement Thursday:

On July 11th I was in Brooklyn, where I live and work, heading from a concert with my girlfriend when, out of nowhere a large man bumped me from behind. I asked him if he was ok. He then barked at me, and I will quote: “mind your own business you fucking dyke.”

Hen then attacked me, punched me in the face a number of times, choked me and called me several more anti-gay slurs. When he had his hands around my neck I truly thought I was going to die. I could not breathe. The only way I could get him to stop attacking me and my girlfriend was to bite him.

When other police officers showed up I thought we were saved. That was not the case. It turned out that this man was an off-duty police officer. Instead of helping me and my girlfriend and arresting our attacker, more officers piled on top of me, slamming me onto the pavement and putting their knees on my neck, shoulders, and back. They then put us both into handcuffs and threw us into a holding cell in the precinct. After being processed at the precinct I was taken to the hospital, and then to central bookings.

At my arraignment, they said that I had assaulted the cop and that I had used racial slurs. Even though I have no record, and their story was a complete lie, bail was set and I ended up at Riker’s Island.

My attacker has still not been charged or arrested.

Even though I am well aware of the many stories about police brutality, especially against blacks, Hispanics, and the LGBT community, I never really thought that this could happen to me. I want to share my story and say that police brutality is a real thing. Hate crimes are a real thing. Both of these things happened to me. Enough is enough.

The criminal complaint against Dorceant — which is embedded below — alleges that Aquino saw Dorceant and her girlfriend, Nandi Allman, “arguing” as he was walking to his personal car that had “a police parking plaque displayed on the dashboard and in area marked for police vehicles only.” When Dorceant and Aquino bumped into each other, the complaint alleges, Dorceant attacked Aquino and “punched him in the face.” When he tried to arrest Dorceant she resisted and “proceeded to bite [Aquino] repeatedly about the arms, chest, finger, and torso, breaking [Aquino’s] skin.”

At a press conference Thursday, Dorceant said the criminal complaint was nothing but lies as she held Allman’s hand and occasionally choked back tears. The couple weren’t arguing on Saturday, she said, but were “talking and laughing” coming back from a performance at the AfroPunk Battle of the Bands in Brooklyn.

When Allman saw Aquino throw her girlfriend’s head to the ground she thought Dorceant was “going to die,” Allman said.

Both women are small and would have posed no threat to the officer, said Dorceant’s lawyer, Benjamin Zeman.

What’s more, during the altercation with Aquino, “not at one point did he mention he was a cop,” Dorceant said. “I didn’t see a badge, gun, anything,” she said.

(Dorceant’s lawyers said the Brooklyn district attorney’s office has since confirmed that Aquino was off duty at the time of the incident.)

Aquino identified himself as a police officer just before a group of uniformed officers arrived on the scene, Dorceant said. He then handcuffed her and her girlfriend. Dorceant was taken to the 63rd precinct and then to the hospital. Doctors told her she had muscle bruising, cuts, scrapes, head trauma and an eye injury, which Dorceant said she received from being thrown to the ground. She was then taken to Brooklyn Central Booking.

During the arraignment in court Saturday, according to Dorceant, prosecutors read aloud a statement from Aquino saying he was concerned he “might have HIV” from her bites. (She has since taken an HIV test; the results were negative, she said Thursday.)

After the arraignment, Dorceant spent an entire day in jail on Rikers Island before Allman was able to pay the $ 1,000 bail. She was released on Monday, having been detained for over two days.

“They never gave me my phone call that I was promised,” Dorceant said. “I didn’t know what time it was. I barely knew what day it was. I was stuck into a room with 50 other girls. It was honestly like living in a concentration camp. I would never wish that on my worst enemy.”

The whole ordeal was “like a nightmare,” she said.

The NYPD’s internal affairs department said it has launched an investigation into the incident to determine if any disciplinary action is warranted.

The Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association — the union that represents New York City’s police officers — didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

On Thursday a judge ruled that prosecutors have until January to convene a grand jury and indict Dorceant. If they don’t, the charges against her will be dismissed.

Benjamin Moore, another attorney for Dorceant, said he is “confident” the charges against her will be dropped before then.

Dorceant and Allman believe Aquino should “absolutely” be charged with a hate crime. They plan to bring civil charges somewhere down the line, they said.

Separately, the civil rights bureau of the Brooklyn district attorney’s office is investigating the incident as a possible hate crime and interviewed Dorceant on Saturday, a spokeswoman said.

In the meantime, a friend of the couple’s has started a crowdfunding page to pay for Dorceant’s legal fees. As of Thursday evening, the campaign has raised more than $ 1,700 towards the $ 8,000 goal.

Chunky NYPD Cops Let Handcuffed Suspect Get Away In Harlem [VIDEO]

Tareek Arnold, a 23-year-old man wanted for suspicion of attempted murder in Harlem, was in handcuffed and in custody at 32nd Precinct station Tuesday night (Jun. 23). Arnold managed to escape the station in handcuffs, and the chunky cops giving chase in a released video shows that NYPD cops might need to lay off the free donuts.

As reported by WCBS and WABC, Arnold was taken into custody last Tuesday and was set to head to Manhattan Central Booking for processing. Instead, cops say Arnold assaulted an officer, while handcuffed mind you, and was seen running down a Harlem street in WCBS’ video.

What makes the whole situation comical is seeing Arnold, who isn’t so slim himself, sprinting with his handcuffed hands while two plainclothes detectives valiantly give chase but ended up looking hopeless in the end. Other fantastic details is that Arnold has two tattoos, one that reads “Troll” and the other that reads “Militant Soldier.”

But on a serious note, a large manhunt was launched by the NYPD yet Arnold is still at large.

Police are asking anyone with information on Tareek Arnold’s whereabouts to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). There is also the NYPD CRIME Stoppers website or folks can text their what they know to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577.

NYPD Take Down Coke Delivery Service & Open-Air Market Drug Rings

NYPD announced the takedown of two major drug ring operations in the Washington Heights section of New York. An open-air crack and heroin market and a cocaine delivery service were the operations that were shut down, leading to the indictment of 35 individuals.

Gothamist reported on the announcement of the arrests, with police stating the busts were traced back to the Trinitarios, an internationally-recognized Dominican gang that began on the Rikers Island prison.  Gothamist reported in detail about the arrests, and it appears the drug operations had some manner of cooperative connection.

From Gothamist:

 Cops accuse Edickson “Gordo” Garcia, Melvin Beltre, and Garis Retances of managing the product and overseeing 18 suspected street-level dealers who allegedly did much of their work near W. 177th Street and Audubon Avenue, a half-block from PS 115.

The group allegedly did most of its business selling crack, but during the course of the year and a half investigation, suspects allegedly provided customers with heroin samples, got them hooked, and began offering smack on a regular basis as well. A second distribution area, allegedly overseen by Garcia and four other suspects, operated on Audubon between 178th and 179th streets, prosecutors said.

In a separate indictment, also announced today, 11 suspects allegedly did $ 75,000 in delivery orders of powder cocaine over the course of six months. Twenty-nine-year-old Roberto Garcia is accused of supervising the ring, operated out of a St. Nicholas Avenue apartment, with his aunt Nancy Garcia Mustafa, 53.

Gothamist writes that 32 of the 35 indicted individuals are now arrested. Edickson Garcia faces a possible 33 felonies while Roberto Garcia and his aunt are facing kingpin charges that could land them 15 years to life in prison among other charges.

Arrests Drop After NYPD Implements A “Work Stoppage”

Staging their own protest of sorts, the NYPD is reportedly only offering limited policing in response to the deaths of Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu, who they claim were killed as a result of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio showing favoritism towards those advocating for an end to police brutality.

The New York Daily News and New York Post has reported a sharp drop in a variety of low level offenses including drug arrests (down 84%,) traffic tickets (down 94%) and felony arrests (down 44%.) Denying that the continued anger towards the Mayor is the cause, the NYPD has instead cited a concern for their safety as the reason behind the decline in police work.

Seen as being “too soft” on police critics, de Blasio originally rode into office on claims that he would reform law enforcement within the city; following complaints that they relied too heavily on racial profiling and unwarranted “stop and frisks.”

The Game Catches Backlash For NYPD Tweet [Photos]

As the country attempts to make sense of the senseless execution of two police officers in Brooklyn, the positive and the negative NYPD tweets have begun to fly at a rapid pace.

The Game unsurprisingly steered towards the anti-cop sentiments in the wake of the national news story and responded with, “I guess y’all “can’t breathe” either. #RIPEricGarner #AllLivesMatter” as it was accompanied with one of the countless articles on the crisis.

Inevitably, there was a swift blowback, most notably by Perez Hilton for the seemingly heartless sentiment.


But like a true G to his word, Jayceon didn’t back down, alleging that he was referencing the viral pictures of the struggle NYPD supporters who were photographed wearing “I Can Breathe” shirts.

The comment in my last post was a DIRECT RESPONSE to the picture above: I didn’t say it was cool that 2 cops were murdered senselessly while sitting in their car. These weren’t the cop(s) that killed ERIC GARNER so it wasn’t necessary they die in that manner the same as it wasn’t AT ALL necessary ERIC GARNER die in the way he did. My comment also suggested that #AllLivesMatter & #ShitNeedsToChangeNow but you simple minded fucks skipped right over the real message to pull whatever negativity you could from my post… As expected. One thing about me is, I’m ME. I’m not running from my views or opinions & I’m standing firm on anything I say.. So while all of you trying to find the HATE in my post, there is NONE. What their is…. is an opinion of a man that believes the deaths of innocent people are never OKAY. Never has been !!! It just so happens, that I’m BLACK. It just so happens I grew up as a minority & have been a victim of racial profiling & police harassment in my youth the same as many so I can relate to the continuous STRUGGLE to change the way the GOVERNMENT deals with it’s own employees when they’re supposed to be highly trained professionals who loosely abuse the right to them wearing the badge given to them. “PROTECT & SERVE” does not mean “CHOKE & KILL” an innocent un-armed man…. Retaliating for Eric Garner’s murder the way the MEDIA portrays it happened wasn’t the answer either but it happened…. SO WHAT NOW… Do police KILL more civilians ??? Or do civilians KILL more police ??? Y’all can’t see what’s happening to our country ? Or all YALL still too focused on an iPhone app to get off of it to take a REAL LOOK AROUND ??? & you ask me, do I like police: NO !!! Do I hate police: NO !!! Have I experienced more police abusing their authority than not: YES !!! So that’s why “I” say FUCK THE POLICE !!! That’s “MY OPINION”…. Does that mean I think it’s dope that 2 innocent cops were murdered: NOPE. But does it change my view on crooked police: NOPE !!! So… You can hate me, not like me, say FUCK GAME or UNFOLLOW or never support my MUSIC again because I have an opinion… SO WHAT, I DO NOT GIVE A FUCK !!! [To Be Continued..]

Man Kills 2 NYPD Officers In Retaliation Of Eric Garner & Mike Brown [Photos]

All the peaceful protests regarding the Eric Garner decision have just been forever overshadowed after a gunman fatally shot two NYPD officers before committing suicide.

Reports New York Post:

Two uniformed NYPD officers were shot dead Saturday afternoon as they sat in their marked police car on a Brooklyn street corner — in what investigators believe was a crazed gunman’s execution-style mission to avenge Eric Garner and Michael Brown.

The tragic heroes were working overtime as part of an anti-terrorism drill when they were shot point-blank in their heads by the lone gunman, who approached them on foot from the sidewalk at the corner of Myrtle and Tompkins avenues in Bed-Stuy.

“I’m Putting Wings on Pigs Today,” a person believed to be the gunman wrote on Instagram in a message posted just three hours before the officers were shot through their front passenger window.

“They Take 1 Of Ours … Let’s Take 2 of Theirs,” the post continued, signing off with, “This May Be My Final Post.”

The gunman was a fugitive who had just murdered his girlfriend in Baltimore Saturday morning, sources told The Post.

Minutes after shooting the two officers, he, too, was dead.

He fled to a nearby subway station, the G-train station at Myrtle and Willoughby avenues, where, as pursuing cops closed in, he shot himself on a crowded platform, sources told The Post.

Despite the obvious fumbling in both Eric Garner and Mike Brown’s grand jury proceedings, Hip-Hop Wired does not condone the heinous actions of the unidentified gunman and do not feel he represents the “I Can’t Breathe” movement in any way.
