Marguerite Jolivert, mother of the late Eudes Pierre spoke out regarding his death on Monday after being shot and killed by NYPD Officers in Brooklyn, while armed with a knife.
Attorney Sanford Rubenstein said: “NYPD don’t kill the mentally ill, has been a rallying cry of New Yorkers for some time in our city. The death of Eudes Pierre is not the first time in this city a mentally ill person has been killed by a member of the NYPD. The question that needs to be answered is was Eudes Pierre an imminent threat to the lives of the Police Officers who shot and killed him. This family will fully cooperate with the investigation of the Attorney General’s Office.”
December 20, 2021 – Early Monday morning around 4:20 a.m., a 911 caller alerted police to the Crown Heights neighborhood in Brooklyn where a man was allegedly observed to be armed with a knife, according to officials.
Two officers deployed their tasers following a brief foot pursuit into a nearby subway station, however the armed suspect was not effected by the use of force. Officers theorized during the press conference that maybe the suspects winter jacket was to blame for the tasers ineffectiveness.
The brief pursuit into the station spilled back onto the street and after several commands directed at the suspect from officers to drop his weapon, the armed individual allegedly charged at police, said NYPD officials.
On the evening of Wednesday, December 22, 2021, Attorney Sanford Rubenstein was advised that he tested positive for COVID-19 after taking a rapid PCR test. In view of the fact that he held Press Conferences on Friday, December 17, 2021 and Wednesday, December 22, 2021 in New York, he advised all those who attended to get tested.
