Cops Who Killed Kimani Gray Focus Of 5 Prior Federal Civil Rights Lawsuits
Another stolen Black life! Sixteen year old, African-American Kimani Gray was mortally wounded after 7 of the 11 bullets fired entered his body both the front and the back. The murderous shots were fired by Sergeant Mourad Mourad and Officer Jovaniel Cordova, who had already racked up five civil rights violations in federal lawsuits. Both Mourad and Cordova were accused of exploiting the "stop-and-frisk" tactic and going outside the confines of the law to hide their involvement. Building Bridges reports from the scene, Brooklyn's east Flatbush section where there has been more than a week of community protests following the latest death of a Black teen, resulting from the policies and practices by the NYPD in communities of color.
