JetBlue Will Provide Free Tickets To Cops Who Want To Attend Slain NYPD Officers' Funerals

JetBlue will reportedly offer free tickets to police officers in the United States who want to attend the funerals of the two NYPD officers who were gunned down in Brooklyn last Saturday.

“We’re honored to do what we can to support the communities we serve, and our team has made flights available to law enforcement agencies … who wish to send representatives to New York to support their brethren,” JetBlue spokeswoman Sharon Jones said, according to the New York Post.

Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu were killed in ambush last weekend by a crazed gunman who claimed he was doing it as revenge for the police-related death of Eric Garner. Neither cop had ever been involved in any questionable situations with citizens, and both left behind grieving family members.

Officer Ramos’ funeral is scheduled for Saturday; Officer Liu’s funeral date has not yet been announced.

According to The Blaze, JetBlue is willing to provide two officers from each department with tickets at no price. Any police departments that are interested can contact them via DearJetBlue[at]JetBlue[dot]com.
