What Drove The NY Cop Killer?  As reported yesterday, a habitual felon was shot dead on Wednesday after executing a female New York Police Officer as she was sitting in a police vehicle writing in her notebook.  In a Facebook post the shooter made his hatred of police very clear.  Manhattan Institute scholar Heather MacDonald has this piece in the New York Post on what motivated Alexander Bonds to kill Officer Miosotis Familia.  "Alexander Bonds' anti-cop rhetoric echoes the Black Lives Matter-inspired vitriol spewed by previous cop assassins over the last three years," writes MacDonald, also noting that the claims that blacks are disproportionately shot by police is false.  Black males made up 42% of all cop-killers over the last decade, but are only 6% of the nation's population.  A cop is 18.5 times more likely to be killed by a black male than an unarmed black male is to be killed by a cop.

Police are still investigating the death of Walters' wife, Nicole.

He is now being held without bail, and is facing charges of 1st and 2nd-degree murder, according to WSYR.
