Westchester County is ranked as one of America’s top richest counties. However, it does not eliminate or exempt certain cities and towns from officers committing illegal activities. Police brutality in Westchster County is present but silent. Kenneth Chamberlain Sr., DJ Henry, Samuel Cruz, Christopher Ridley, and now added to the list is Raynette Turner.
Packed funeral homes, churches, court houses, and streets with weeping mothers and fathers filled with Black Lives Matter and Her Life Matter chants. The community is sad and those who protect and serve are also sad. Why? Because. There is no justice! There is no peace.
Join families, community leaders, community activists, and several Mothers who’s loved one died at the hands of police officers. This town hall will address community concerns about: Raynette Turner, the Special Prosecutor, Elections, Support for the Families, Police Misconducts, and Where do we go from here? PANEL: Pastors from the Community, Constance Malcolm (Mother of Ramarley Graham), Danette Chavis (National Action Against Police Brutality), and Sharonne Salaam (Mother of Yusef Salaam). This marks the first probe since Cuomo issued an executive order last month naming Schneiderman special prosecutor for police-involved deaths.
