Special Prosecutor for RAYNETTE TURNER

Raynette Turner is one of the 6 women of color (5 black and 1 Native American) to die in a United States jails just last month.

This will be the first such investigation since Gov. Andrew Cuomo issued an executive order appointing New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman as  the special prosecutor to investigate all cases where an unarmed civilian dies at the hands of police.

Protest works. The Governor appointing a special prosecutor should be counted as a #BlackLivesMatter success as this is a good first step toward stopping the police from investigating themselves.

However, the state is still investigating itself.  And the state has an interest in not making itself look bad.

I'd like to see the federal government investigate all cases where unarmed civilians die at the hands of police. I'd also like to see a federal "depraved indifference charge" that carries jail time.
