“My deepest condolences to the families of Officer (Jason) Rivera, Officer (Wilbert) Mora and Lashawn McNeil,’ Harlem Councilwoman Kristin Richardson Jordan tweeted on Tuesday, referencing the killer just hours after Mora was taken off life support following the double-murder in her district.

“Lives lost due to broken public safety & mental health systems that spare nobody. Harlem stands with the families of the fallen and we will not stop fighting for a safer world for all.”

Rivera was a 22-year-old rookie officer and died at the scene Friday. They were called to a domestic violence scene involving McNeil and his mother.

McNeil, 47, was shot during the ensuing disturbance and died Monday, with Mora, 27, dying in hospital Tuesday.

Jordan — who proclaims to be a “Black, lesbian, activist, teacher” on her website, according to the New York Post , was condemned by multiple NYPD officers over tweets.

One Bronx-based cop told the New York Post : “How could she mention a coward, cold-blooded murderer in the same sentence as two heroes?”

Another officer from Brooklyn said: “I find it very disturbing to see the perp’s name in the same sentence as the two heroes who are not even buried yet.”

Jordan has called for police departments to be abolished.

A third officer, Sumit Sulan, a rookie who was shadowing Mora and Rivera, shot the 47-year-old McNeil as he tried to flee.
