Hi All,
Please see the information below from Ramarley Graham’s parents requesting that we call, fax, and email the Bronx DA’s office ASAP to demand a date for the convening of a new grand jury in the case against Richard Haste. This is a quick and easy process with specific directions below.
Ramarley’s family is also holding a rally at the Bronx DA’s office on Wednesday June 5th at 12pm. See attached flyer and come support if you are able!!

We need your help to get justice for our son! ~ Parents of Ramarley Graham
 
Call, email & fax Bronx DA to demand he announce the date of a new grand jury by June 4!
 
We need your help to push Bronx District Attorney Robert Johnson to announce the date he will convene a new grand jury to indict Richard Haste, the NYPD officer who killed our son.  We demand this new date be announced by June 4! We do NOT want the DA to appeal Judge Steven Barrett’s decision to drop the indictment. That will take too long!
 
As you may know the judge threw out Haste’s indictment on May 15, 2013, because the prosecutor’s office failed to properly instruct the grand jury indicted Haste for killing on two counts of manslaughter. DA Robert Johnson is now deciding if he will appeal the judge’s decision or reconvene a new grand jury.
 
In the coming months we will strengthen and expand our efforts to win just for Ramarley.  We will not stop until Richard Haste is in prison for killing our son.
 
Right now we need everyone to call, email & fax the Bronx District Attorney’s office and demand that he announce the date on which he will be reconvene new grand jury by June 4. Justice delayed, is justice denied!

Sample of what to say if you call (718.590.2000):
Hello, I’m a Bronx resident [if you are not a Bronx resident say you are a New Yorker]. I’m calling to ask that DA Robert Johnson announce the date on which he will reconvene grand jury in the case of NYPD Officer Richard Haste by June 4, 2013. I do NOT want the DA to appeal Judge Barrett’s decision to drop the indictment. That will take to long.

Sample email ( angueirl@bronxda.nyc.gov):
To Whom It May Concern:
 
I am a concerned Bronx resident [if you are not a Bronx resident say you are a New Yorker] .  
 
I am writing to ask the District Attorney Robert Johnson to reconvene a grand jury for the case of Richard Haste, the NYPD officer who killed Ramarley Graham on Feb. 2, 2012.  I was troubled when Judge Steve Barrett overturned the original indictment on May 15 base on a technicality.  I am deeply concerned that justice is being delayed in this case.
 
In the strongest terms possible, I urge the DA to announce the date on which a new grand jury will be convened by or before June 4.

 

Thank you for your consideration.

 

Sincerely,
xxxxx
