Parents, elected officials rally against alleged police misconduct in 43rd Precinct
Parents and elected officials rallied Thursday to voice their concerns about what they say is police misconduct in the 43rd Precinct. The claims come more than a week after 11 teenage boys were arrested and held on robbery and assault charges. Parents say the teens were wrongfully arrested and their civil rights were violated because they were in custody for more than 24 hours before the parents were notified. According to the parents, all the teens involved have hearing dates in Bronx Criminal Court on May 19. In the meantime, the parents say they've filed complaints against police with the Citizen's Review Board.
