Brooklyn father stabbed to death on NYC subway, slashed after sticking up for cop killed by cop

John, a Brooklyn father who was stabbed to death by a cop while he was a witness in the attack, was slain by a man who was already a police felon.

John, a Brooklyn father who was stabbed to death by a cop while he was a witness in the attack, was slain by a man who was already a police felon. He was the fourth witness killed on the New York City subway in a month.

The brutal incident took place on a Wednesday subway station when a black man named Eric Garner, who was selling water at a subway stop, was pinned to the ground, as cops beat him, with a police officer wielding a gun, then shot him dead.

One of the young men who witnessed the attack was killed at the station the same day.

While Brooklyn District Attorney, Kenneth Thompson, declared the death of Eric Garner’s 43-year-old body a hate crime, many say the death was accidental and that the real issue is the killing of four young men in the last month.

John, the father of two children, who grew up in Maspeth, Brooklyn, was allegedly stabbed in the face during a brutal encounter with cops as he was trying to confront an apparent trespasser at a subway stop, a police source confirmed to DailyMail.com.

John, who was taken to a nearby hospital, died from his injuries later in the evening Wednesday after being pronounced dead. It is unknown how many others were injured in the brutal assault involving a cop and a criminal who was already a fugitive.

John, who left behind two children, was known for his work as an artist and is survived by two daughters.

Police said John’s death was unrelated to a stop-and-frisk encounter, the source told DailyMail.com.

John was a family man who had a troubled love life, an NYPD source said, adding that his death is not a direct result of the encounter, and that there might have been more to it.

The source said: ‘The encounter between John and Eric Garner was not a hate crime. It is clearly a hate crime when police kill someone on a subway stop. But it wasn’t a hate crime, so what happened to Eric Garner isn’t a hate crime.

‘There could have been a hate crime there
