People attend a candlelight vigil on December 21, 2014 on Myrtle Ave. and Tompkins Ave. in Brooklyn, after the slaying of two police officers there.

The deaths of officers Liu and Ramos on Saturday were the first time since an officer was killed in the line of duty in three years. Richard Aborn, president of the Citizens Crime Commission and former assistant DA, talks about the history of assassinations from the 1970s and 80s, and whether this weekend's shooting fits in.
