Would-be terrorists considered attack on NYPD funeral after Rafael Ramos send-off: authorities

Vice President Biden, Gov. Cuomo, Mayor de Blasio and NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton led the massive outpouring of mourners at the Dec. 27 funeral for the martyred cop.

Valentzas, after learning about the enormous gathering, “was trying to evaluate whether a police funeral was an appropriate terrorism target,” said the 20-page complaint against the pair.

The suspect, who espoused violent jihad against the U.S., felt the Boston Marathon bombers made a mistake by targeting innocent people, the complaint charged.

“It is better to go for the enemy,” Valentzas was quoted as saying.
