Silent Vigil for George Floyd at Renaissance Plaza in White Plains, DA Scarpino Remarks

This afternoon, District Attorney Anthony A. Scarpino, Jr. and First Deputy District Attorney Victor Olds joined in a silent vigil for George Floyd, the black man who died at the knee of a police officer in Minneapolis.

In a statement after the event, DA Scarpino said, “As both a citizen and as District Attorney–I am just as outraged as everyone who attended this vigil and across the country–in the brutal death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Those images of a police officer kneeling on a man’s neck are disgusting. What we saw was reprehensible. That is not who we are as law enforcement nor as citizens. I am calling for justice to be done swiftly and completely.”

The vigil was organized by the WESPAC Foundation and held at Renaissance Plaza in White Plains.
