New York was reeling Sunday after the murder of two uniformed cops by a man who said he was seeking revenge for the recent killings of unarmed black men by police.Police named the shooter as 28-year-old Ismaaiyl Brinsley, allegedly a member of the "Black Guerrilla Family" gang.Mayor Bill de Blasio and police chief Bratton somberly attended a mass at Saint Patrick's cathedral in New York led by Cardinal Tim Dolan.But the double-killing, in a city where murders are at their lowest rates in 20 years, further strained the already fraught relations between de Blasio and police.Police officers accuse de Blasio of failing to support them and of being too sympathetic to demonstrators who, in recent weeks, have been protesting police violence against African-Americans.Baltimore police on Saturday had tried to warn their New York counterparts of Brinsley's plans, but it was too late.
