NCDP Statement On Pasquotank County District Attorney Decision

Following news that the Pasquotank County District Attorney will not bring criminal charges on the deputies in the shooting of Andrew Brown Jr., NCDP Chair Bobbie Richardson released the following statement: 

“North Carolina deserves a system that works to deliver justice, protects our communities, and serves the people — not one that allows law enforcement to become warriors against our own citizens. We must put a stop to the use of excessive force and work to find solutions that will prevent implicit biases from shaping perceptions and actions. I am deeply troubled by the lack of transparency and accountability that has led us to this point and I look forward to the findings of the FBI’s civil rights investigation.”
