August 30, 2012: Experts testify Black Guerilla Family ordered hit – YouTube
It now appears that the assassin from Baltimore which is a city with a very high crime rate, belongs to this prison gang called ‘The Black Guerilla Family’. He wasn’t a lone killer, this gang actually announced they would do exactly what they did do. The NY police were given warning that this was going to happen and the warning was ignored. Just one hour before the murders, the Baltimore police warned by NYC police only it was too late to do a search for him. It appears that the killer announced his mission online! And this was picked up by the detectives in Baltimore.
BREAKING NEWS: NYPD cops turn backs to de Blasio at hospital – NY Daily News with a video showing at least 100 police officers at the hospital, they all turned their backs on the mayor as he entered to see the dead officers’ families. They also were totally silent which is quite ominous. I know this very well! I had to work hard to get the police to open up and try working with me way back in 1978.
The two dead cops, one is a Hispanic Rafael Ramos and one was Chinese, Wenjian Liu. Neither of them were ‘white’, strictly speaking.
One source said Baltimore police were already investigating Brinsley’s connection to the gang, which started in California’s San Quentin Prison in the 1960s by Black Panther member George Jackson.
“BGF has been talking about getting back at cops for Eric Garner and Ferguson,” a source told The News, citing intelligence intercepted in Baltimore area prisons.
Several times I thought about writing about this story. Seems the prisons in Maryland were overrun by criminals who worked with a host of guards there to smuggle stuff and commit or order crimes outside the prisons and this was a gigantic scandal:
54 correction employees arrested or fired. Several women guards were removed after having sex with the leader of the gang in prison.

The precinct where the assassinations happened is one I know rather well: the 79th Precinct. This is the specific precinct chosen by former Commissioner Kelly and Mayor Bloomberg to try a new way of fixing the messes there: NYPD to Roll Out Revamped Operation Impact Plan which was a plan to flood the place with ROOKIES who would work with the older cops to stop even petty crime and mischief.
This was unpopular and people in Bed Stuy wanted the status quo back which is basically to run the place like a slum. DeBlasio tried to fix this:
Critics say it contributed to the wide use of the controversial stop-question-and-frisk tactic that stoked tensions between minority residents and the police. A federal judge ruled stop, question and frisk unconstitutional.
Changing the program was one of Mr. Bratton’s main initiatives. The details are still being completed, but more than 450 of roughly 630 new officers graduating on June 30 will enter the program.
They will likely be sent to two precincts each in Brooklyn, the Bronx and Queens and one each in Manhattan and Staten Island, Mr. Tucker said. Another group will be assigned to the public housing bureau, he added.
The stop and frisk method had to be dropped but it wasn’t replaced with anything realistic. Instead, we went back to the good old 1970’s when the cops ceased patrolling in the ‘old way’ and replaced this with…nothing. I know because after the 1977 riots and looting which burned down a big hunk of my neighborhood, the mayor rejoiced that no looters or arsonists were shot except two! By a desperate store owner!
I can see why the cops are so pissed off! The officer whose gun went off and shot a man in a dark stairwell in the Pink Projects was one of these unfortunate rookies. I don’t know if today’s victims of the assassin are also rookies. Here is one of DeBlasio’s changes:
The new officers will follow up with people who were victims of crime, or reported someone missing, and ask them “how was the, you know, how was the contact with the police department? Were you happy with it? Anything we could do better?” Deputy Inspector LiPetri said.
Victims want someone to wave a magic wand and fix things. But this is impossible. Fixing the slums so they are habitable is impossible if the people who live there wish to make it uninhabitable. Removing the occasional crook or belligerent fighter might work in middle class neighborhoods but it barely scratches the surface in slums.
Sending basically helpless rookies into these hell holes is insane. They are NOT ‘shepherded’ along by someone with experience. We know this from the Pink Houses shooting, they go out together, two lambs to the slaughter. I don’t know if the cops shot today were both rookies or not. If they are, this is disgusting. Police work is very difficult which is why it is so easy for some of them to slip up or become jaded and even violent but then, this is a violent business where one is interacting with some highly anti-social or psychotic people.
