Council Member Letitia James recognizes that this is a tragedy which claimed the life of an innocent woman. It is the duty of the NYPD to investigate the circumstances of this incident, and communicate openly with the victim's family, her office, and the community at large.
Join Council Member James in urging Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Commissioner Raymond Kelly to reopen the investigation into the events surrounding this tragic accident and demanding justice NOW.
We applaud Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes for conducting his own independent investigation into the matter. The thoughts and prayers of the entire community are with the family during this most difficult time.
