“Ramarley Graham’s life was needlessly cut short when Richard Haste fired the fatal shot that killed yet another unarmed black man in our City. While the vast majority of NYPD officers serve our City honorably,  those accused of misconduct must be thoroughly investigated and disciplined accordingly.  The dismissal of Richard Haste from the NYPD is necessary and appropriate and I thank Commissioner O’Neill and the NYPD for convening a disciplinary trial to address this serious matter and for taking this long overdue action.”
