CALLS FOR GREATER POLICE ACCOUNTABILITY

By Black Radio Network Staff

NEW YORK - Sparked by the violent death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, the Rev. Al Sharpton today led a demonstration in New York calling for legislation to hold police more accountable during protests, violence and looting. He was joined by Gwen Carr, Eric Garner's mother. Garner was strangled to death by NYPD officers while attempting to sell cigarettes. The legislation sought would make it illegal for a police officer to use a choke hold or any action that restricts breathing and it would create a "disciplinary matrix" to describe the appropriate penalties for cops which would provide greater transparency concerning internaldiscipline.
