Cuomo to Appoint Special Prosecutor for Killings by Police
The New York Times
With pressure mounting from families whose loved ones have died at the hands of a police officer, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo said on Tuesday that he was preparing to issue an executive order naming the state attorney general as a special prosecutor for police-related civilian deaths.
The governor called the order “a major step forward” and stressed his hope that independent investigations would help restore public faith.
