Grand Jury's Out

Brooklyn D.A. Accused of Failing to Indict Cops Who Kill

It's hard telling that to a mother or father who has lost a child to an officer's mistake. Milta Calderon said she ended up accepting a $265,000 civil settlement from the city for Anibal's death. But it still galls her that her unarmed son was shot in the back. At the time, Hynes said he met with Calderon and kept his promise to insure "full and complete investigations and presentations of evidence to a grand jury."

"I had a meeting with Charles Hynes. He didn't want to hear me," Calderon said. "He got highly upset. I was saying to him, how could you say the cop's life was threatened when my son was shot in the back?"
