Governor Cuomo Directs State Police Hate Crimes Task Force to Assist In Investigation of Another Burning of Pride Flag Outside Harlem LGBTQ Bar

Posted to Applied Web NY on Mon, 07/08/2019 - 13:09

"I am appalled by the burning of yet another pride flag outside an LGBTQ bar in Harlem. This act of hate is repugnant to our values of equality and inclusion, and we will not stand by and allow these cowardly acts to continue in New York.

"I am once again directing the State Police Hate Crimes Unit to assist the NYPD with its investigation and hold those responsible accountable to the fullest extent of the law.

"In New York we have zero tolerance for this despicable behavior and will continue to live by the credo that the most powerful four-letter word is not hate - it's love."
