[News 12] Family calls for justice at rally for Ronald A. Smith
A remembrance rally took place outside of Attorney General Letitia James’s office on Wednesday night for the late Ronald Anthony Smith.
Smith was a Brooklyn man who was fatally struck by an NYPD van last April. His family and friends took to the streets tonight to speak out following two NYPD-involved crashes that took place this past weekend, leaving one dead and another injured.
The family is calling for the two NYPD officers involved in the fatal striking of Smith to be fired, after bodycam footage was released from the deadly accident, showing the NYPD van accidentally striking Smith as he was walking along Eastern Parkway.
Those partaking in the vigil and rally are calling on Attorney General James to take serious action.
