Peaceful Vigil for Black Lives Matter Sees Local Politicians Calling for an End to Police Brutality

State Senator Julia Salazar addressed the crowd around the urgent need to repeal section 50-a of the New York Civil Rights Law that deems “personnel records” of police officers, firefighters and corrections officers confidential and not subject to inspection or review without the officers permission. This section, she said, was to blame for a lack of accountability in many police shootings and violations and their subsequent cover ups, as the public, including victims’ families, could not access any information.

“Bushwick is Latino, Bushwick is Black, Bushwick is Afro-Latino. We will not accept discrimination from the police or anyone else in our community,” Salazar said.

“New York has some of the worst laws when it comes to accountability and transparency. Not just for officers but for public servants, all of us, and the public, all of you, deserve better. Our black neighbors deserve better.”

New York Senator Makes the Case for Defunding the NYPD

State Senator Julia Salazar argues in a Q&A that policing reforms “have failed” and that funds should be reinvested into other services; she also lays out bills she is supporting to improve accountability. “These changes won’t be made unless we demand them loudly and relentlessly,” Salazar said.
