Brooklyn Cop Killer Posted Photo of Murder Weapon on Instagram

brooklyn shooter murder weapon instagramMuch like woman-hater Elliot Rodger, Ismaaiyl Brinsley – the 28-year-old gunman who took out two police officers near a Brooklyn subway station yesterday – foreshadowed his murderous intent using social media, posting not only a photo of the weapon he used to shoot his ex-girlfriend, the two cops and also himself, but messages that read “I”m putting wings on pigs today,” “They Take 1 of Ours…… Let’s Take 2 of Theirs #ShootThePolice #RIPEricGarner #RIPMikeBrown,” and “This may be my final post.”

In an added tragic twist, Brinsley’s ex’s mother told the Baltimore police Brinsley was dangerous, but the NYPD didn’t receive the information until “moments before the attack” on officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos, who were shot in their squad car without warning at 2:47 p.m. on Saturday, December 20.
