BY:LEON KWASI KUNTUO-ASARE

New York became the first state to appoint a special prosecutor for police related civilian deaths, when on tuesday New York governor Andrew M. Cuomo issued an executive order naming the state attorney general as the special prosecutor for police-related civilian deaths.

This came after the national outrage when an Eric Garner, an unarmed African-American was seen on video being choked to death by New York police on staten Island.

Despite the chokehold not being allowed under police rules and the medical examiner ruling Mr. Garner’s death a homicide, the grand jury refused to indict the police officer who murdered Eric Garner.

image

BY: LEON KWASI KUNTUO-ASARE

Kalief Browder, who was a young New York man of only 22, killed himself on Saturday.

The young man suffered mentally for years after spending three in Rikers prison without charge, since he was 16, even though there was no proof he committed the crime he was accused of (stealing a backpack) and the person who accused him of the crime, repeatedly changed his story. At Rikers he became traumatized after he was not only beaten by prison gangs and prison guards, but he also suffered two years of solitary confinement, which often times makes inmates go insane, if in there for an extended amount of time.

He attempted to get mental health treatment several times while in prison, but was always denied.

R.I.P BROTHER!!
