#FireNYPD for Ramarley Graham
Ramarley Graham was only 18 years old when NYPD officers unlawfully busted into his home and killed him - in front of his grandmother and 6 year old brother. NYPD officers engaged in misconduct every step of the way, including:
- Unlawfully busting into Ramarley's home - without a warrant and without cause
- Threatening and abusing Ramarley's family members after he was killed
- Lying and releasing false statements about the incident, and engaging in activities that suggest a broad cover-up
It's been more than 4 years and none of the officers have been fired. There has been no meaningful or timely discipline, and the identities of most of the involved officers has not been released. Officer Richard Haste, who shot Ramarley and threatened his grandmother, has received close to $25,000 in NYPD raises since killing Ramarley.
Ramarley's birthday is April 12th. On April 12, 2016, Ramarley should have celebrated his 23rd birthday.
Join #23Days4Ramarley from April 12th through May 4th, 2016 to support Ramarley's family and to call on Mayor de Blasio & Commissioner Bratton to #FireNYPD who killed Ramarley, unlawfully entered his home
