HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — Randy Hoskins-White was treated like a caged animal by Nassau County police, and officials are trying to cover up his politically motivated arrest, the man’s lawyer alleged Monday.
In his notice of claim filed on White’s behalf — the first step toward filing a lawsuit — attorney Fred Brewington points the finger at both the county executive’s and district attorney’s offices.
“We are saying that there is a conspiracy that’s going on here,” Brewington told reporters, including WCBS 880 Long Island Bureau Chief Mike Xirinachs. “There’s real concern here, and, yes, we are suggesting that there is a cover-up. There’s a cover-up that goes from the heights down to the rank-and-file.”
