“They Can’t Just Kill Us”: Kenneth Chamberlain’s Neighbors Speak Out as Police Avoid Charges

We get reaction from residents of the White Plains public housing complex, where Kenneth Chamberlain Sr. lived, to the news that the police officers who killed him in his own apartment will not be indicted. In the early hours of November 19, 2011, officers tasered Chamberlain and then shot him after they were called to his house when he mistakenly set off his LifeAid medical alert pendant. “Those cops that did this were wrong,” says neighbor Denis Grant. “[They] need to be accountable for what [they] did … You cannot kill us like this — white, black, whoever. You can’t kill us and get away with it.”
