A gunman was taken into custody Sunday after he ambushed police officers in the Bronx twice in 12 hours, wounding two in attacks that ignited outrage from officials who blamed the violence on an atmosphere of anti-police rhetoric.
Horrified by the multiple attacks on @NYPD officers in the Bronx.
NY's law enforcement officers put their lives on the line every day to keep us safe. These attacks are heinous.
Those responsible will be brought to justice & held accountable to the fullest extent of the law.

I grew up in New York City and, over many years, got to watch how GREAT NYC’s “Finest” are. Now, because of weak leadership at Governor & Mayor, stand away (water thrown at them) regulations, and lack of support, our wonderful NYC police are under assault. Stop this now!
