Sad: Memorial for Cop-killer Bigger than the One for the Cop He Killed
It’s an upside down world, folks:
In a shocking turn of events, the make-shift memorial erected for a cop-killer in New Jersey is bigger than the shine set-up for the rookie police officer he murdered in cold blood over the weekend – an act he claimed would make him ‘famous’.
The temporary roadside memorial for Lawrence Campbell, who was shot dead by police in Jersey City after he killed 23-year-old Melvin Santiago on Sunday morning, boasts sickening tributes, even claiming that he should have killed more police.
Despite the death of Santiago, who had served only seven months on the force, Campbell’s widow, Angelique Campbell, said that she only wishes her husband had killed more officers before they gunned him down outside a Walgreens after he stole a security guard’s weapon – using it to shoot Santiago.
‘That’s how I feel. God forgive me, but that’s how I feel,’ Angelique Campbell told local reporters in New Jersey at the memorial for her convicted felon husband who was wanted in connection with a recent Jersey City homicide.
‘If that’s the case, he should’ve took more with him. If they was going to stand over my husband and shoot him like a f—ing dog, he should’ve took all of them the f— out.’
The problem with that is, it’s not how it happened. They didn’t stand over her husband and shoot him like a dog.
They killed him after he killed Santiago.
She’s since apologized for her comments.
No word on if she’s lit a candle for the cop her beloved husband ambushed and killed.
