    According to 1010 WINS, the victim had a Russian Orthodox minister (or priest or whatever the term used was) by his side for confession. I’m guessing he isn’t Jewish.

    May this officer rest in peace and his family be comforted during this terrible time.

    Baruch dayan emes.

    Hopefully, the feds step into this case (they fled across interstate lines after the shooting), convict, and give them capital punishment.
