It seems like every other day, the NYPD is facing scrutiny for another shady shooting incident involving a black male. According to the New York Daily News, a pair of NYPD officers who played a role in the shooting death of unarmed teenager Kimani Gray, are heading to civil court stemming from unrelated matters.
The NYPD sergeant and cop involved in the fatal shooting of Brooklyn 16-year-old Kimani Gray have been named in five federal lawsuits — which cost the city a total of $215,000 in settlements, court records show.
Sgt. Mourad Mourad racked up three suits while he was a plainclothes cop on Staten Island, and Officer Jovaniel Cordova racked up two at Brooklyn’s 70th Precinct — all alleging various civil rights violations including illegal stop and search and false arrest.
