[Black Star News] GRAHAM FAMILY DEMAND FIRING OF HASTE, OFFICER WHO KILLED SON AS DEPARTMENTAL TRIAL
Family members of Ramarley Graham were joined by community supporters who packed the room on the first day of the New York Police Department (NYPD) departmental trial of Officer Richard Haste, who shot and killed Graham in 2012...
They demanded full accountability from Mayor Bill de Blasio and NYPD Commissioner O’Neill for Haste and all the officers who engaged in misconduct that related to Ramarley’s killing, including abuses of family members.
“Over the last almost five years, our family hasn’t been demanding special treatment, just equality and that officers be held accountable to the law and by the NYPD,” said Constance Malcolm, the mother of Ramarley Graham.
“There is a clear moral choice and the de Blasio administration and NYPD can no longer delay making that decision. Accountability must mean firing Richard Haste and all the officers responsible for killing Ramarley, abusing my family and other misconduct related to my son being killed in what should have been the safety of our own home,” she said.
