Jay Z is showing his full support for Governor Andrew Cuomo and his six-point plan to reform police and community relations. The governor discussed the plan during the annual State of the State Address and some of the changes proposed by Cuomo are recruiting more minority officers, funding body cameras and forming a statewide commission on police-community relations.
Jay released a statement via Capitol Confidential :
“The criminal justice reform package proposed by Governor Cuomo today is a huge step forward in restoring fairness, protection, sensitivity and accountability for all under our justice system. I commend Governor Cuomo for his bold leadership in taking this issue head on at this critical time. This package presents comprehensive steps to protect and improve relations amongst all citizens. We cannot be divided, as every single human being matters. Together, we can move forward as a community, with mutual respect for each other and continue to make this great state stronger than ever before.”
