"We’re here today at a moment in time when, overall, our City and State have never been safer. But at this moment when other types of crime are dropping to historic lows across New York, we are experiencing an epidemic of vehicular violence that has killed 28 of our Manhattan neighbors year-to-date, and injured thousands more. A New Yorker today is more likely to be killed by a car than with a knife or a gun."

“The death of Zymere Perkins was an unthinkable tragedy that sent shockwaves through the city and inspired a reckoning with how our social services system works to protect New York’s most vulnerable,” said District Attorney Vance. “As proven at trial, Zymere was an innocent and helpless six-year-old boy who suffered unconscionable, ongoing violence at the hands of Rysheim Smith. Now, a Manhattan jury has rightly held the defendant accountable for this horrific murder, and I’d like to thank the members of that jury for their careful attention during this heartbreaking case. I would also like to thank my Office’s prosecutors, whose oath compelled them to fight for Zymere Perkins as if he were their own child, and who worked tirelessly to obtain a measure of justice for him in this devastating case.” https://www.manhattanda.org/justice-for-zymere-perkins-d-a-vance-announces-all-count-trial-conviction-of-rysheim-smith-for-brutal-murder-of-six-year-old/
