The Civilian Complaint Review Board (CCRB) voted Wednesday to substantiate misconduct charges against NYPD Officers Brendan Thompson and Herbert Davis, who killed Kawaski Trawick on April 14, 2019.
The charges pertain to Officer Thompson’s and Davis’ abuse of authority, use of force and other misconduct in their killing of Trawick. Thompson and Davis killed Trawick in just 112 seconds after arriving at his apartment. Now that the CCRB has voted to substantiate charges against Thompson and Davis, the family is calling on the CCRB to swiftly file the charges with the NYPD, and the NYPD to immediately serve the charges on the officers and schedule the administrative trial.
