Cuomo's Unkept Promise
OpEd by Gwen Carr and Constance Malcolm
Gov. Cuomo may be a skilled political operator, but sound public policy that protects the lives of our children and achieves equal justice needs to be placed above any political deal-making or appeasement.
Nothing will ever fill the void in our lives or heal the pain from our sons, Eric Garner and Ramarley Graham, being killed by police officers.
After being forced to live through the nightmare of burying our children, the failure of the justice system — through local district attorneys — to hold officers accountable exacerbated that pain and suffering.
