The powerful duo of Damon K. Jones and AJ Woodson hosted the discussion of the recent shootings of mentally ill Black men in New York. These heartbreaking incidents have left us questioning the systems that should protect and serve us all.
On May 30, we mourned the tragic loss of Sean Harris, an autistic man who called Central Nyack home. And just a few days ago, on July 3, our hearts were shattered once again as we learned of the shooting of Jarrel Garris by the New Rochelle Police. These incidents demand our attention and action.
Are these incidents indicative of a broader failure? Are our elected officials, police management, and the New York State Attorney General’s Office neglecting the urgent need for a comprehensive plan to address how police interact with individuals in mental crisis? We refuse to stand idle while these questions go unanswered.
