To Whom It May Concern:
We express gratitude to the Department of Justice for undertaking an investigation into the killing of Danroy “DJ” Henry in Westchester County, New York. The seemingly biased and inept investigation conducted by the various Police Departments involved, has offended our sense of justice and raised considerable doubts as to the integrity of the procedures followed in the handling of this case.
We trust that the Department of Justice will use all of the resources at its disposal when investigating this matter to ensure that justice is served. This includes gathering information independently rather than relying on data received from local agencies, speaking directly to witnesses and accessing and viewing any and all electronic recordings of that evening’s events. Because without an exhaustive investigation into the possibility that misconduct may have been perpetrated on the part of the responding officers, we may never truly understand the events which took place and this matter may never fully be put to rest.
We urge the Department of Justice to demand transparency, accountability, and truthfulness from the officers involved and the police departments as a whole. We believe that these are the most fundamental tenets of the service that law enforcement officers provide to our society, and it is only through the universal application of these values that we can ensure the fair and impartial administration of justice for all citizens.
Again, thank you for your commitment to this matter.
