America has suffered yet another murder of a law enforcement professional. A corrections officer was assassinated in her car last night in Brooklyn. The photo above makes it pretty clear this was no random incident. Someone wanted her very dead. Someone with some skills handling a handgun. Pix11 has the story:
FLATLANDS, Brooklyn — An off-duty city correction officer was fatally shot while sitting in her car in Brooklyn Sunday night.
The shooting happened around 9:15 p.m., near Avenue L and E. 73rd Street in the Flatlands section of the borough.
Alastasia Bryan, 25, was sitting in her car when a dark colored Honda pulled up and fired, police said.
Bryan was struck in the head and torso. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
It seems a safe bet that Mayor DeBlasio’s New York City doesn’t allow corrections officers to carry sidearms off duty. While it might not have made a difference, depending on the situation, it’s too bad she didn’t have a meaningful ability with which to fight back against her assassin. RIP Officer Bryan.
