NYPD Officer Who Shot Unarmed Ramarley Graham Received $25K in Raises

HeadlineDec 23, 2015

Meanwhile, in New York, public records show the police officer who shot and killed unarmed teenager Ramarley Graham has received nearly $25,000 in raises since firing the fatal shot almost four years ago. Graham, an 18-year-old African American, was unarmed when Officer Richard Haste shot him dead inside the bathroom of his grandmother’s home. Haste was initially charged with manslaughter, but a judge later threw out the indictment on procedural grounds. A second grand jury elected not to indict. Officer Haste has been on desk duty since killing Graham. A federal investigation into possible civil rights violations in the case is ongoing.
