ANTHONY DELMUNDO/NEW YORK DAILY NEWSBrooklyn Borough President Eric Adams said ‘it’s time for New Yorkers to come together’ to mourn fallen cops Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu.

As politicians called for calm Sunday in the wake of the killings of two police officers, some protesters prepared for another night of demonstrations.

“I’m asking all those to hold off on any form of protest until these officers are laid to rest in a peaceful manner,” Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams said. “It’s time for New Yorkers to come together.”

But Julianne Hoffenberg, one of the organizers of Justice League NYC, said: “We meet and see what seems appropriate for that time, but we do have a lot of direct actions coming up and we are moving forward.”
