Dozens of protesters rallied outside police headquarters in downtown Manhattan Thursday to urge NYPD Commissioner Edward Caban to buck the recommendation of an administrative judge that the officers involved in the shooting death of 32-year-old Kawaski Trawick face no discipline.

Trawick, a personal trainer and dancer with a history of mental health and substance use challenges, was shot and killed by officer Brendan Thompson while cooking in his Bronx apartment in April 2019.
