KING: An open letter to Mayor de Blasio and Commissioner O’Neill after the NYPD killing of Deborah Danner
"I can only speak for myself here, but if you all do not fire Sgt. Barry, after having made such strong comments condemning his actions, I will struggle to trust anything you ever say again. Terminating Sgt. Barry is not justice, but it is a start, it is within your power and it needs to happen.
..the shooting death of Deborah Danner presents an opportunity for our city to truly be a place of innovation at the intersection of mental illness, policing, technology and compassion."
