Video Of NYPD Kicking In Door Before Killing Unarmed Teen Surfaces
1 year ago
Footage of moments before Ramarley Graham's death hits the web.
Earlier this month the NYPD made headlines again after they shot and killed an unarmed teen in a "drug bust" in which they kicked in his door and caught him trying to flush weed down the toilet. Now video has surfaced of the cops using all types of illegal procedures in their pursuit.
Last week it was reported that 18-year old Ramarley Graham took off running when cops attempted to question him while they were making another drug arrest. But this video shows that he was actually walking. When he got home and locked the door, it seemed that he avoided the police. But new surveillance shows the police desperately kicking in his door and entering without a search warrant. Witnesses also say they never identified themselves as police.

When the cops entered the home, by sneaking in the back and opening the front door, they ran upstairs and found Graham trying to get rid of his drugs. A struggle ensued and Graham wound up getting shot in the chest.
"The cops told me they were chasing him. He had weed, and that's it," said Grahams mother. "Nobody deserves to be shot like that in their own house."
