Brewster, N.Y. – 12/21/2014 – Senator Greg Ball (Patterson – R, C, I), Chairman of the Senate Veterans, Homeland Security and Military Affairs Committee, issued the following statement regarding the assassination of NYPD officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos.

“My thoughts and prayers go out to the friends, families and all members of the New York City Police Department trying to keep their beloved city safe. Let me be blunt. Yesterday two members of the NYPD, serving in uniform to protect all of us, were executed in Brooklyn. As someone who is no longer constrained by political discourse let me be clear. In a matter of months this Mayor has taken the city back nearly 50 years. Today, our NYPD and other law enforcement and emergency responders have walking targets on their backs and are in grave danger. Mince no words. The Mayor is directly responsible for their safety or lack thereof. This Mayor brings all new meaning to ‘I didn’t know you could stack shit that high’. Don’t wait for him to act New York. Take peaceful and effective action now, and in the coming months, to hold him accountable. This man needs to go. Never forget,” said Senator Greg Ball.
