Mother Blasts Mayor After Officer Who Fatally Shot Bronx Teen Resigns

By Dean Meminger

(New York) – The mother of an unarmed Bronx teenager shot dead by police is speaking out after the officer resigned before he could be fired. She is angry at the officer, the NYPD and the mayor. NY1’s Dean Meminger filed the following report.

Constance Malcolm is furious that the officer who fatally shot her unarmed son Ramarley Graham five years ago quit the NYPD so he wouldn’t get fired.

“When you made that call to him on Friday, you should have told him he was fired then,” Malcolm said.

Richard Haste now says he wanted to tell his side of the story to Graham’s family but wasn’t allowed to by the police department and his union.

“I would be happy to avail myself to them personally if they have any questions or issues I would be happy to address that one on one,” Haste said.
