TROY, N.Y. -- It's been almost a week since the office of New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman released a 200-page report detailing issues with the Troy Police Department's investigation of the fatal shooting of Edson Thevenin.
Now, it seems the city council will soon meet with Schneiderman to discuss its findings. Carmella Mantello, the Troy City Council president, requested the meeting after the report was released.
“I'm looking at this as a whole. No one is here to point fingers," Mantello said. "We just, obviously moving forward, we want to improve whatever we can improve."
But not everyone is on board with the meeting. PBA President Nicholas Laviano released a statement over the weekend, saying in part that the council should have first called the police department.
"President Carmella Mantello, you are so easily able to reach out and schedule a meeting with the AG's office for political points and headlines but have been reluctant to schedule any meeting of any sort with Troy police chiefs," Laviano said in the statement.
Mantello says she's contacted the public safety chair twice since the report was released.
