The New York City Police Department, led by Commissioner Edward Caban, has decided not to discipline the officers involved in the fatal shooting of Kawaski Trawick, a 32-year-old Black gay man, inside his Bronx apartment five years ago, prompting outrage at the department and New York City Mayor Eric Adams. The decision not to impose disciplinary action came after the NYPD concluded that the officers, Brendan Thompson and Herbert Davis, “acted within the law” during the incident.
