STATEMENT FROM REV. AL SHARPTON ON THE ARREST OF THE POLICE SERGEANT IN THE DEBORAH DANNER SHOOTING

 New York, NY (May 31, 2017)  – “The arrest of the NYPD Sergeant charged with murder in the fatal shooting of Deborah Danner is a good step in a long walk toward justice. We will monitor selection of the jury, the trial, and the verdict.  National Action Network has previously said that the need for an overhaul in police training and a review of those qualified to become police officers is apparent and must be dealt with. We cannot return to a city of Eleanor Bumpurs type shootings that we fought many years ago in the same borough.”

Rev. Al Sharpton, President, National Action Network
