Speaker Silver Statement on Murder of Two NYPD Officers

I am deeply saddened by the brutal murder of two New York City police officers this afternoon. This is a cowardly act of violence that is breathtaking in its senselessness. The brave men and women of the NYPD put their lives on the line every day in service to our community and today two heroes made the ultimate sacrifice. This is an unimaginable tragedy. My thoughts and prayers are with their families during this terrible time.
