The grieving son of a New York City police officer shot dead execution style on a Brooklyn street Saturday has posted a heart-wrenching goodbye to his slain father to Facebook.
Jaden Ramos, 13, will never see his father Rafael Ramos again after he was murdered along with his partner ‘just for being a police officer,’ heartbroken Ramos said.
Once given the incomprehensible news, Ramos took to social media to publicly celebrate his adoring father and condemn his cold-blooded killer.
‘Today I had to say bye to my father. He was their for me everyday of my life, he was the best father I could ask for. It’s horrible that someone gets shot dead just for being a police officer,’ Jaden posted.
He continued: ‘Everyone says they hate cops but they are the people that they call for help. I will always love you and I will never forget you. RIP Dad.’
It was a somber addendum to an earlier December post in which he honored his dad’s 40th birthday.
‘Happy birthday to the best dad in the world, you are always there for me even when it’s almost impossible,’ he wrote December 9. ‘We have so many good times it’s not even funny, I love you so much.’
Jaden’s wrenching tribute came Sunday as a heartbroken community in Brooklyn started a makeshift memorial of flowers and candles at the site of the slayings in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood.
Rafael Ramos was assassinated in the targeted attack alongside his recently-married partner Wenjian Liu on Saturday.
