Family members united through a tragic bond testified before the City Council on Thursday. They all had loved ones who died in police custody or were killed by police. At the heart of the family members' testimony was a call to throw out a state statute that has restricted them, and all New Yorkers, from finding out information about officers involved in fatal situations with civilians.
