ALBANY, NY – Governor Andrew Cuomo wants flags on all state government buildings in New York City be flown at half-staff today in honor of New York City Police Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos. Officers Liu and Ramos were assassinated yesterday while on duty in Brooklyn.
“I join with all New Yorkers in mourning the loss of Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos,” Governor Cuomo said. “Like all law enforcement personnel, Officers Liu and Ramos put their lives on the line in order to serve their communities, and it is with great sadness that we mourn their passing after a senseless and deplorable act of violence. My thoughts and prayers go out to the loved ones of these two brave men. We will remember their service with pride and endless gratitude.”
