Jay Z Meets with New York Governor Andrew Cuomo About Criminal Justice System Reform

0

Jay-Z met with New York Governor Andrew Cuomo on Wednesday to discuss a potential review of the criminal justice system in the wake of two controversial police killings in the U.S.

The rapper and businessman, who has often discussed his past as a drug dealer while growing up in the Big Apple’s tough Marcy housing projects, held talks at the official’s office about a possible overhaul of the system.

It came in the wake of protests on the streets of several cities following recent grand jury decisions not to indict two cops who killed unarmed men in separate incidents.

Cuomo spokeswoman Melissa DeRosa tells the New York Post, “(They) had a productive conversation about doing a top-to-bottom review of the criminal justice system, and how we can all work together to pass a reform package that ensures equality in the eyes of the law.”

Protests erupted across the U.S. after grand jury rulings to clear two police officers who were involved in the shooting of teenager Michael Brown in Missouri and the death of Eric Garner.
