– There was unity in the sentiment that flowed through the crowd, which included members of the 100th Precinct community, from Breezy Point to Arverne. The vigil, organized by Councilman Eric Ulrich and the 100th Precinct Community Council, was supposed to be held outside, but chilly temperatures and wind moved the crowd inside to the muster room of the precinct. Community members held candles and signs and had a moment of silence as they paid respect to Detectives Liu and Ramos, who were assassinated in Brooklyn on December 20, 2014.

Those who gathered also remembered the fallen officers of the 100th Precinct, who gave their lives while serving the community over the years, including Patrolman John Kennedy – killed December 3, 1922; Patrolman Hubert Allen – killed August 5, 1927; Patrolman Arthur Fash – August 4, 1928 and Police Officer Joey Alcamo – killed March 26, 1992.

Councilman Ulrich, 100th Precinct Community Council President Danny Ruscillo, State Senator Joe Addabbo, Assemblyman Phil Goldfeder, Captain Adelman, Queens South and Commander David Barrere took turns acknowledging the sacrifice of the police while also praising the support from residents in the 100th Precinct.

“Each and every day, the men and women of the NYPD risk their safety to protect their fellow New Yorkers,” Ulrich said. “In the wake of the recent shootings, it’s important to remember our fallen heroes and to say thank you for making New York the safest big city in America.”

“The Precinct Community Council has always been supportive of our men and women in blue, and we’re glad to partner with our elected officials and the community to demonstrate that support,” Ruscillo said.

A previous vigil was held in Flushing at the 107th Precinct last week. Members of the Rockaway community made the trip and attended that service as well.


About Jumpin' Jack Cash

Deep connections are the most important aspect of my existence. I don’t care if people don’t know what they want. I love books. I’m cynical of love stories, although I’m romantic. I adore gardens. I like women who challenge me. I love the rain as an excuse to stay inside and dream. I'm furiously impatient. If I ask you a question best to tell me the truth as I'm likely to already know the answer. I'm a carnivore. I continuously underestimate the magic of fresh flowers in my home. I love warm rain in the summer. My mood elevates to epic proportions when the sun shines. Tell me not to do something and I'll do it twice and take photos. Running is my antidepressant. I loathe lies. I rarely forgive a lie. Loyalty and honesty are my most noble virtues, and I value them more than anything in other people. I love to love, and am able to fall in love very quickly, although it's only ever happened once. I understood myself and fixed myself only after destroying myself. My greatest excitement comes from deliberately getting lost in foreign cities. I can be extremely loud and frighteningly silent. I hate insinuations. I love storms. Justice for all. I'm a proud man, but welcome the influence of the feminine soul. I have two sisters. I’m a dreamer. I’m a deep thinker. Don’t deal with guilt trips or drama that well. I'm extremely stubborn and persistent. I'm brilliant at keeping secrets. I love driving. I become absolutely and completely lost while watching a burning fire. When the toast pops from the toaster I’m never ready and shit myself. I play the guitar, but require much improvement. Solitude and warmth of the sun are perfect together. I’ve been married once and now divorced. I’m a music junkie. Chocolate mousse is the shit. I curse too much. I find it difficult to make friends. I spent four years as a firefighter. I’ve run my own company since 1991. Bright lights, big cities. I’ve been an executive producer of a feature film. Some people don’t care, and that’s the biggest let-down of the human race. There are cures and solutions for many evils, but no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings. The sound of the Italian language being spoken is as good as my favourite music. I hate corrupt cops. I relentlessly and passionately pursue anybody and anything that sets my soul on fire. I'm a dog lover, and all my dogs are considered family members. I have an obsession with photography. I have some close friends who are household names, but shall always remain anonymous. I’m crazy but not lazy. Losing a soulmate has hurt me badly. My two young sons are the nucleus of my universe. I love airports. I love freedom. If you are dishonest or disloyal, I can erase you from my life and memory immediately and permanently. I yearn to explore, dream about and discover as many friendships, deep connections and places, one possibly can in a lifetime.
