New York governor to name special prosecutor for killings by police

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 07/08/2015 - 15:14

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo attends a "Raise the Wage" rally in New YorkCuomo told reporters he would issue an executive order valid for one year that would place Attorney General Eric Schneiderman in charge of investigating and prosecuting police-involved killings, taking those cases out of the hands of district attorneys. "We will be the first state in the country to acknowledge the problem and say we’re going to create an independent prosecutor who does not have that kind of connection with the organized police departments," Cuomo said, according to the New York Times. Cuomo said the appointment of a special prosecutor would help rebuild public confidence in law enforcement, following several high profile killings of unarmed black men by officers.
