NEW YORK (AP) — Thousands of uniformed police officers from New York City and around the country gathered Friday at the solemn, eight-hour wake of a city policeman who was killed along with his partner in a brazen daytime shooting a week ago.
Two New York Police Department officers were ambushed last weekend by Ismaaiyl Brinsley after he had made threatening posts online, including references to high-profile cases of white police officers killing unarmed black men and a vow to put "wings on pigs." After shooting the officers, Brinsley ran into a Brooklyn subway station and committed suicide.
Strike bowler Trent Boult led a rampant New Zealand attack that wiped out Sri Lanka's first innings and forced them to bat again on the second day of the first Test on Saturday. Sri Lanka were all out for 138, some 303 runs behind New Zealand's 441 in the last over before tea. Brendon McCullum did not hesitate to enforce the follow on with his bowlers still fresh after cleaning up Sri Lanka's first innings in under two sessions. Boult set the tone for the rout when he claimed the first three wickets, including the prized scalp of Kumar Sangakkara, with a magical spell of swing bowling before lunch.
