As Fox News reported, the New York Yankees will pay for the college education of a slain New York Police Department cop’s son and another son, who will go to college:
“A foundation founded by late New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner reportedly will cover the education costs for the sons of one of the two NYPD officers murdered in a daylight ambush Saturday afternoon.
The New York Daily News reported that the Yankee Silver Shield Foundation will pay for the education of Officer Rafael Ramos’ 13-year-old son Jaden and another son who is in college.
Ramos, 40, and his partner, Officer Wenjian Liu, were killed as they sat in their squad car in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn. The gunman, 28-year-old Ismaaiyl Brinsley, killed himself a short time later in a Brooklyn subway station.
Later Saturday, Jaden Ramos paid tribute to him in a Facebook post.
“Today I had to say bye to my father. He was their [sic] for me everyday of my life,” the post read. “He was the best father I could ask for. It’s horrible that someone gets shot dead just for being a police officer. 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.””
