Kamal Flowers was shot twice by Officer Alec McKenna after allegedly fleeing a traffic stop just after 11 p.m. on June 5.The officer involved in a the deadly shooting in New Rochelle has been cleared of wrongdoing, Westchester County District Attorney Anthony Scarpino announced Wednesday, after a grand jury voted not to indict him.
Scarpino said that in the interest of transparency, the District Attorney’s Office petitioned the court to allow information related to the presentation to the grand jury to be revealed, including the charges that were presented.
“The death of Kamal Flowers was tragic,” Scarpino said. “His family and friends have lost a loved one and are devastated by this loss. I am deeply saddened by his death because his life mattered. Any use of deadly force is difficult to accept. We want the Flowers family and the people of New Rochelle to know, this investigation took top priority for this office, and, even as we have been challenged by the coronavirus. We did everything to ensure the investigation’s veracity.”
Base on how these officers operate or engaged black males and color people is really questionable.I’m not on the scene leading up to the event or at the end of that event,but there is one that officers are doing that is shooting.Do I believe that some of the killings could’ve been prevented or avoided by these officers,YES! These types of stories are read everyday across this country.We need to retrain our Officers.
