Black Law Enforcement of America Exposes Westchester Police Misconduct

By Michael H. Joseph

A prominent black police officers association slams the Westchester District Attorneys Office for whitewashing police misconduct cases in Westchester, and they are absolutely right. A representative for the New York division of the Blacks in Law Enforcement of America stated that the Westchester District Attorney’s Office failed to properly investigate police misconduct and brutality by officers of Westchester town police departments. While the recent comments addressed the unfortunate shooting of an off duty black police officer in White Plains, who was in the process of effectuating a lawful arrest, this unfortunate situation is just a symptom of a larger problem, which is the complete refusal of the Westchester’s D.A.’s refusal to seriously address police misconduct.

Our White Plains police misconduct lawyers and New York police brutality attorneys have defended numerous cases where the police should have been prosecuted for civil rights violations and felony level assaults. Despite overwhelming evidence, the local police departments and the Westchester District Attorney’s Office Bureau of Public Integrity, has shown a complete lack of integrity and refused to prosecute clear violations of law and have instead turned these investigations into an attempt to gain discovery in preparation for the defense of the civil law suits.

Our Westchester police misconduct lawyers have handled numerous cases against the City of White Plains, Yonkers, Greenburgh, Mount Kisco and Westchester County for police misconduct and brutality. Even though the decks are stacked against our police misconduct lawyers, we continue to fight the good fight and make sure that the Constitutional guarantees continue to be protected.
