At a quarter to 11:00 on the night of January 27, 1972, two rookie
patrolmen, Gregory Foster and Rocco Laurie, were on their beat, poised on
this corner of 11th Street and Avenue B. As they stood, perhaps talking,
perhaps only pausing silently for a moment, three, or maybe four, men came
toward them across the intersection, parted to pass, then suddenly spun
around and unleashed a thundering volley of shots into the backs of the two
cops. As the pair went down, the men stood over them and fired again and
again - Laurie took six slugs, Foster eight. One of the gunmen fled North
up Avenue B; the others jumped into a getaway car and sped away. Hours
later the car was found idling by the L subway station at 14th Street and
First Avenue. Empty shells were found in the station itself, indicating
that the killers had fled, courtesy of the MTA, into Brooklyn. Foster died
instantly, Laurie on the operating table early the next day.


Two cops mercilessly assassinated was shocking enough, but Foster and
Laurie were only the latest victims of a nearly yearlong vendetta against
the NYPD. On May 19, 1971, patrolman Nicholas Binetti and Thomas Curry
flagged down a car at Riverside Drive and 106th Street for a minor traffic
violation. Suddenly, their patrol car was riddled by a burst of machine
gunfire from the car. Though gravely wounded, neither died. Two days later
patrolmen Waverly Jones and Joseph Piagentini, walking out of a project
called the Colonial Park Houses at 159-20 Harlem River Drive in Inwood,
were ambushed. This pair was not so lucky - the attack was fatal for both.
