The Asian Pacific American Law Students Association (APALSA) of St. John’s Law is pleased to present a virtual panel program that is being co-sponsored by AABANY’s Academic Committee:
 
Police Accountability: What Does It Really Look Like?

Eight minutes, forty-five seconds. That's how long Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin knelt on George Floyd's neck as Floyd, a a 46-year-old black man, pleaded, "I can't breathe." His last words continue to resonate across the country and around the world as protestors and activists call out rampant police brutality and demand accountability. Chauvin now faces murder charges, and fellow officers J Alexander Kueng, Thomas Lane, and Tou Thao have all been charged with aiding and abetting. 

Join us as we welcome a panel of experts who are working on the ground as lawyers and public servants to examine and address police misconduct. After sharing their experience and insight, the panelists will answer audience questions so we can better understand police accountability, frame the consequences of inaction, and advocate for reform and justice.
