BROOKLYN - The shooting of three police officers in Brooklyn and The Bronx last week has reignited a call for the death penalty for criminals convicted of killing cops.

Brooklyn's Republican state Sen. Marty Golden took the fight to his Facebook page saying, "We can no longer sit back and watch ruthless murderers take the lives of police officers...New York needs the death penalty to protect our society and our police officers who risk their lives every day for our safety and well-being."

Officers Lukasz Kozicki and Michael Levay were among the three wounded officers. They were shot after stopping a passenger while in plainclothes on a Manhattan-bound subway train in Dyker Heights.
