Sharpton calls for officer's indictment in shooting of BX teen
Rev. Al Sharpton is calling for the indictment of the NYPD officer who fatally shot an unarmed Bronx teenager.
Sharpton joined the family of Ramarley Graham for a press conference outside the Bronx District Attorney's Office today to request a federal investigation into the 18-year-old's death. He and members of the clergy also demanded that the NYPD release information about officer Richard Haste, who allegedly pulled the trigger.
Police Commissioner Ray Kelly called for a citywide review of the street narcotics enforcement unit in the wake of the shooting and announced last week that Haste had no street-level narcotics or plainclothes experience.
Haste and his supervisor are currently on restricted duty.
