Gothamist/WNYC revealed Wednesday that it has obtained the recordings that expose a culture of impunity and lawlessness within law enforcement ranks in Mount Vernon, a troubled majority-Black city in Westchester that lies just north of the New York City borough of the Bronx.

A family in Melrose Houses in the Bronx was mourning the loss of their aunt today when police officers stormed out of their squad car and jumped their 15-year-old son. The child’s father, mother, and uncle came to his aid and the cops respond by pepper-spraying their entire family. BLMNY Chairman Hawk Newsome was peacefully recording the incident after to make sure the police didn’t brutalize anyone else. While he practiced social distancing they inched closer and the police proceeded to aggressively surround him, smack his phone out of his hands and arrest him. While white folks are being given refreshments in the park by police during COVID-19, black people are being harassed and brutalized in their communities. **Our legal team is handling it, and will let you know of any further info** —— We Take Care Of Each Other Support The Peoples Food Campaign #ThePeoplesFoodProgram Venmo @BlackLivesMatter-GreaterNY or CashApp $BLMGNY gofundme
