May 29, 2020

Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance, Jr. today joined 39 other prosecutors from across the U.S. in a statement to condemn the murder of George Floyd and police violence. 

“We demand accountability from police and our fellow prosecutors, and we demand systemic change – and commit to bringing about these changes in our own communities,” the prosecutors wrote. “There have been some strides made, but not nearly enough as the body count at the hands of violent police officers continues to rise in cities across this nation.”
