On February 2, 2012, plainclothes NYPD Officer Richard Haste followed unarmed 18-year-old Ramarley Graham to his home in the Bronx, violently broke down his door without a search warrant, and killed him in front of his grandmother and younger brother. Bronx District Attorney Robert Johnson convened a Grand Jury that voted to indict Officer Haste, but a judge threw out the indictment, citing prosecutorial error. A second Grand Jury then refused to re-indict him.
The Department of Justice and the U.S. Attorney's office have the power to take over the case and hold Ramarley's killer accountable. Join us in demanding the DOJ and U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York Preet Bharara conduct a thorough investigation and bring federal charges against Officer Haste.
