100 BLACKS IN LAW ENFORCEMENT WHO CARE ALLEGES A COVERUP BY NYPD COMMISSIONER RAYMOND KELLY

IN ORDER TO AVOID POLICE CULPABILITY IN THE KILLING OF KHIEL COPPIN

100 Blacks in Law Enforcement Who Care is deeply concerned by a disturbing pattern of premature pronouncements by NYPD Commissioner Raymond Kelly following Police killings of unarmed civilians. Commissioner Kelly’s knee jerk justifications of the use of deadly physical force by Police Officers, compromises the integrity of a comprehensive investigation and introduces a bias.

The recent shooting of Khiel Coppin is just the latest in Police killings of unarmed civilians that Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly rushed to indicate “appears to be within Department guidelines” prior to their being a comprehensive examination of evidence and facts. 100 Blacks in Law Enforcement Who Care calls for an independent investigation and permanent Special Prosecutor in light of the spate of Police killings.

100 Blacks in Law Enforcement Who Care co-founder Marq Claxton states, “Commissioner Kelly’s conduct in regards to the Khiel Coppin shooting re-affirms that he is not interested in the truth by way of transparency and full disclosure, but rather is obsessed with media manipulation and deceptive public relations ploys. Until Raymond Kelly is compelled to institute safeguards against race based Police shootings, these incidents will continue to happen.”
