Rev. Al Sharpton: "The National Action Network and civil rights leaders across New York City are seeking an immediate meeting with newly appointed NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea to discuss current policing policies as it pertains to the treatment of Black and Brown communities in New York City."

What should Black and Brown New Yorkers expect from new NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea?

The Rev. Sharpton, of the National Action Network, made the following comments in response to the NYPD Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea to be named next NYC Police Commissioner, with the resignation of former NYPD Commissioner James O’Neill:

"The National Action Network and civil rights leaders across New York City are seeking an immediate meeting with newly appointed NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea to discuss current policing policies as it pertains to the treatment of Black and Brown communities in New York City. We’re hoping that he is open to having an open dialogue with us and working together to help put an end to unlawful policing practices while increasing accountability as it pertains to NYC’s Black and Brown communities."

Outgoing Commissioner O'Neill had overseen the NYPD since September 2016, after he replaced the champion of "Broken Windows" policing, Bill Bratton. O'Neill has been attacked--by the New York City Police Benevolent Association--ever since he finally fired killer-cop Daniel Pantaleo for choking Eric Garner to death on a Staten Island street on July 17, 2014.
