Officers Liu and Ramos of the NYPD were assassinated by a madman last week while sitting in their patrol car eating lunch.
The officers were promoted posthumously to First Grade Detectives, which means their families get a little more money.
Officer Liu was only 32 and was a newlywed. When I saw his picture I was struck by the good humor of his face. He even had dimples.
I usually don’t post newsy stuff (Kerfe takes care of that so well) but I felt good honoring this man with a portrait. Rest in peace, Wenjian Liu. You didn’t deserve your fate.
