OCA Calls for Increased Oversight of Police Misconduct


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

WASHINGTON, D.C. – OCA – Asian Pacific American Advocates isconcerned about fairness in holding police accountable for on-duty shootings,particularly in the wake of the conviction of Officer Peter Liang in Brooklyn.

“We extend our deepest sympathies to Akai Gurley’s family,”said Leslie Moe-Kaiser, OCA National President. “We support the value of blacklives unequivocally. However, we must distinguish the instances of harm anddeath perpetrated against communities of color by law enforcement officers andthe pervasive, institutionalized bias which protects such officers from theunintentional actions of Officer Liang. We hope that there is an understandingthat the physical environment Officer Liang was thrust into, the insufficienttraining provided by the NYPD, and the absence of supervision by seniorofficers also contributed to Mr. Gurley’s death.”

“Though we sympathize with Officer Liang’s family, he shouldstill be held accountable. We strongly encourage the Court to carefullyconsider Officer Liang’s culpability at the time the weapon was discharged indetermining his sentence,” continued Moe-Kaiser. “At its core, this case isabout seeking justice in an unjust system, one that has continuallymarginalized black lives and pitted communities of color against each other. Wecannot allow this case to become a racial wedge issue hindering communities ofcolor from collectively bringing about meaningful criminal justice reform. Allofficers must be held accountable for their actions, regardless of their race.In order to accomplish this, OCA calls upon all states to work with theDepartment of Justice to create independent offices that investigate instances ofpolice misconduct, excessive use of force, and shootings. The United States isa nation established on the rule of law, and it is time we ensure that thoselaws apply equally and equitably to everyone.”

OCA – Asian Pacific American Advocates is a nationalorganization of community advocates dedicated to improving the social,political, and economic well-being of Asian Pacific Americans (APAs).
