The killing of innocent people is never right or justified. We are hoping this is not a false flag or hoax or a plan to use this situation to allow police around the country to use lethal force against civilians. By no means are we detectives but something about this incident is very strange.

Here is the official timeline of Ismaaiyl Brinsley’s movements on a day that began with the unauthorized entry into his ex-girlfriend’s house and ended with his suicide in a Brooklyn subway station:
Enters apartment of ex-girlfriend Shaneka Thompson in Owings Mills, Maryland with a key he should not have had. They argue.
Brinsley fires a single shot at Thompson, reportedly into her stomach. He flees with her cell phone.
Brinsley calls Thompson’s mother to apologize for shooting her. He claims it is an accident, and that he hopes she lives.
Baltimore County Police begins monitoring him. They track Thompson’s cellphone to the I-95 freeway, where he is believed to have been riding a bus. During the journey he keeps phoning Thompson’s mom, and reveals he is headed to New York City.
Brinsley arrives in New York City, in the West Side, and rides the subway to Brooklyn.
He throws away Thompson’s phone in the Barclays Center. The NYPD later recovered it. Investigators are unclear where he goes between midday and the killings at 2.47pm.
Baltimore County Police send the NYPD a fax alerting them to Brinsley and his intentions. By the time it filters down to the rank-and-file, he has already struck.
Brinsley identifies his targets in the Bedford-Stuyvesant area of Brooklyn, tells passersby to watch, then fires four shots at them.
As he flees he confronts two Con Edison drivers, who chase him in their truck and point officers in their direction.
He runs into the Myrtle/Willoughby G train station, where he shoots himself dead on the platform
