Wake Being Held Today for Murdered NYPD Officer

Posted July 11, 2017

On Wednesday officer Familia was ambushed while sitting in an RV-like mobile command center.

Before the shooting, Familia worked off patrol after undergoing multiple surgeries, sources said.

"She was an exceptional person, and I know she's up there with God and with us", she said.

Speaker of the New York City Council Melissa Mark-Viverito called it a "worthwhile investment", while State Senator Andrew Lanza said protection of police officers should be an "utmost priority". An ex-girlfriend described Bonds as a paranoid schizophrenic.

She leaves behind a 20-year-old daughter and 12-year-old twins, a boy and girl, the NY Daily News reports.

Sarah Malik - a local Staten Islander who manages Surriya Global Charities with her family - approached Bagels R Us and local legislators to host an event "Bagels for Blue" featuring "NYPD blue" bagels at the store in Eltingville. She was [an] especially warm and erudite woman who fiercely loved her children and went to work every day proud to do her job, to protect us. Our mom, Miosotis Familia, was our pride.

The line outside World Changers Church extends several blocks as people wait to pay respects to Police Officer Miosotis Familia (mee-oh-SOH'-tihs fuh-MIHL'-yuh).

The NYPD is now adding bulletproof glass to certain vehicles.
