City police commissioner talks NYPD-community relations with charter school students

The city’s top cop found himself on the spot Friday when a high school student from Staten Island pressed him during a town hall on what the NYPD is doing to hold accountable officers who commit misconduct.

“The NYPD has a history of police being overly aggressive toward people of color,” said Kehinde Adeoso, a 17-year-old junior at Eagle Academy Staten Island. “As commissioner what policies have you put in place to hold officers accountable who have exhibited unwarranted, unjustified violence toward people of color?”
