Dear Editor: New information has come out from the NYPD police commissioner. Officer Brian Mulkeen was killed by friendly fire during a fight with Antonio Lavance Williams who tried to take his gun.
I’m greatly saddened over the death of Police Officer Mulkeen who was killed in the line of duty while fighting with ex-con Williams and killed by friendly fire, while Williams tried taking Officer’s Mulkeen’s gun.
Williams tried to kill one of NYPD’s finest and lost his life as well. This is also true for many people who are engaged in hating and showing disrespect to police officers who are only trying to do their jobs. Officer Brian Mulkeen cared about what others thought of police officers, for he knew that his fellow officers were doing their best for the people of New York City. He did his job he loved and did protect and serve the good people of New York who needed him. He gave his life for them. In my book he is a true hero. As such my heartfelt prayers goes out to his family, friends, and fellow officers.
