ops claim that Ramarley Graham, the Bronx teenager they shot and killed last week, was running away from them. The surveillance video shows him walking and shows police entering his home without a warrant.

Al Sharpton held a press conference denouncing the killing and hundreds gathered yesterday for a protest in the Bronx. They chanted “NYPD-KKK.”
