13-year-old son of slain NYPD officer mourns father on Facebook


‘Today is the worst day of my life,’ Jaden Ramos writes

“Today I had to say bye to my father,” Jaden continued. “He was their [sic] for me everyday of my life, he was the best father I could ask for. It’s horrible that someone gets shot dead just for being a police officer. Everyone says they hate cops but they are the people that they call for help. I will always love you and I will never forget you. RIP Dad.”

Jaden’s Facebook posts have been shared more than 8,000 times.

Police say Rafael Ramos, 40, and his partner, 32-year-old Wenjian Liu, were killed Saturday as they sat in their patrol car in Brooklyn by a gunman who earlier in the day had announced on social media that he planned to kill two “pigs” in retribution for the recent U.S. police killings of two unarmed black men, Eric Garner and Michael Brown.

Authorities say the gunman, 28-year-old Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley, shot and wounded his girlfriend in Baltimore before traveling to New York where he shot both officers. Brinsley fled the scene, ducking into a nearby subway station where he shot and killed himself.
