The New York City Council's Black, Latino and Asian Caucus (BLAC) released the following statement after New York Attorney General Letitia James announced she was filing a lawsuit against the NYPD and Mayor Bill de Blasio for the rampant excessive use of abuse of force against New Yorkers during police protests in the aftermath of George Floyd's murder by police.

"In the several days of national rage that followed George Floyd's murder, we witnessed demonstrative, impassioned, but non-violent appeals for racial justice in our own city encounter forms of police brutality that met the definition of cruelty.

"The Mayor and Police Commissioner's state of denial during that period did lasting damage to their efforts to rehabilitate the NYPD's image and cultivate public safety enhancing partnerships with the community.

"It is clear that this Administration can no longer be left to its own devices in holding officers who cross the line accountable, and Attorney General James is to be commended for using her authority to pursue legal remedies imposed by the Court."
