The letter will be sent to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, New York Senate Majority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins, and Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie.
Although Governor Cuomo consists of the reform of 50-A as part of his four-part reform bundle, the music neighborhood thinks that”50-A has actually been used much too often in the past and also, without repeal, it will certainly continue to be used to obstruct justice.”
In uniformity with the songs neighborhood, 300 stars, artists, and professional athletes authorized the letter, in addition to 200 individual advocates and also companies.
The team thinks that”it is not nearly enough to chip away at 50-A; this stone in the course of justice has stood in the means for much also lengthy and also has to be smashed completely.”The New York legislature is set to vote on a collection of reform expenses on Monday, with the signees specifying that “we advise members to acknowledge the moment, and also take one loud, vibrant, as well as purposeful step in resolving this systemic issue.
“Cuomo has said that he” will certainly authorize whichever expense the legislature passes.”On Monday, Rihanna, Ariana Grande, Billie Eilish, Migos, Megan Thee Stallion, Justin Bieber, Meek Mill, Nas, and also Demi Lovato authorized an open letter calling for New York to reverse statute 50-A, the state legislation that maintains policeman ’employees and disciplinary documents concealed from public view.”
We mourn the killing of George Floyd as well as the unnecessary loss of numerous black lives prior to his. We need to hold answerable those who break the vow to offer and protect, and locate justice for those that are victim to their violence, “the letter reviews.” An indispensable action is having accessibility to disciplinary documents of law enforcement police officers. New york city statute 50-A blocks that full openness, shielding a history of police misbehavior from public scrutiny, making it more difficult to seek justice as well as cause reform. It needs to be reversed instantly.
” We advise participants to identify the minute, take one loud, vibrant, and meaningful action in addressing this systemic trouble.”
