Demonstrators protested Tuesday evening, days after the NYPD announced they would not discipline the police officers involved in the death of Kawaski Trawick. "Mayor [Eric] Adams should be ashamed of himself as a father and as a Black man for not firing the police who murdered my son," said organizer Keith Fuller as he read a statement from the Trawick family.

Elected officials and criminal justice advocates held a press conference outside City Hall to react to the decision not to fire the two NYPD officers involved in the fatal shooting of Kawaski Trawick. Trawick, an aspiring dancer who suffered from mental health issues, was living in a supportive housing facility in the Bronx when he called 911 on the night of April 14, 2019.
