HuffPost Live: Christian Lassiter talking about the shooting of Kimani Gray

This morning, our very own Christian Lassiter appeared live on HuffPost Live to talk about the Kimani Gray killing by the NYPD in Brooklyn last weekend.  As you can see, Christian did a fabulous job in this very important and critical conversation about the NYPD’s campaign to target young Black and Latino men in low income communities.

A riot broke out over the death of a teenager shot by the NYPD. Although he was armed, the neighborhood feels violated. Is the NYPD too disconnected from communities?
