WILLIAMS’ STATEMENT ON AG JAMES’ INVESTIGATION INTO DEATH OF WIN ROZARIO

May 3rd, 2024

Press Release

"The body camera footage released today by Attorney General James is incredibly disturbing and confirms what we knew— the NYPD responded to a call for mental health help from Win Rozario with immediate escalation and deadly force, shooting him despite the pleas of his mother and the lack of any real justification. The video also confirms that the NYPD made patently false statements about the shooting. "It’s clear these officers involved should not be on the force if we are at all serious about safety, and NYPD should not be the first responders to those dealing with mental health crises. Now the question remains--will the administration provide any real consequences or accountability? "Ask Kawasaki Trawick’s family."
