One of the three killers of a New York Police Department officer was a registered police informant at the time of the shooting.
A document obtained by NYPD Confidential shows that Lee Woods, 29, was registered with the NYPD's Intelligence Division five months before he and two other men shot Officer Russel Timoshenko and partner Herman Yan on July 9, 2007.
The officers had pulled over Woods, Dexter Bostic, and Robert Ellis in a stolen BMW SUV at 2 a.m. in Crown Heights, Brooklyn. Bostic fatally shot Timoshenko in the face with a .45 handgun and Ellis wounded Yan with a 9mm. Woods had a loaded Tec-9 and claimed he didn't fire it.
Woods, Bostic, and Ellis were all convicted in the rookie officer's murder.

Somebody please make sure his blockmates are aware of his prior relationship with the NYPD. As for the other two, well, include them too. RIP Officer Timoshenko and get better Officer Yan. Be safe guys.

New York needs an operational death penalty for these animals.

A double agent rat that kills the good guy hero in society. I wish this lowlife scumbag could get the electric chair. At least we know he will spend every last minute of his miserable life stuffed in a cell.
