On April 4, NYPD officers shot and killed unarmed, 34-year-old Crown Heights resident Saheed Vassell in a hail of at least ten bullets.
Now it's been 12 weeks since the NYPD killed Saheed in his own neighborhood, and the Mayor has still failed to provide the public with the names of officers involved, their misconduct records, all unedited surveillance videos and a reason why SRG (a highly militarized anti-terrorism unit) responded to the incident. Meanwhile, the NYPD continues to peddle false narratives about Saheed.
BMC has demanded justice and is calling bullsh*t. In addition to keeping the pressure on the mayor and NYPD to release names, disciplinary records and unedited video of the officers who killed Saheed, we’ve produced a series of video interviews that reveal who Saheed really was and what he meant to his community.
Share the videos and join us in calling the Mayor every Wednesday to get answers for Saheed’s family.
