Tessa majors

"We so deeply feel the pain and the injustice of that life promise breached in an act of barbarous violence."
Tessa Majors was killed in Morningside Park during a botched mugging.
Under the sentencing by Judge Carol Goldstein, the teenager will serve a minimum of six months in a limited secure facility.
At least some of the complaints were substantiated by the city's Civilian Complaint Review Board, the attorney for one of the defendants said.
The 14-year-old is being charged as an adult, sources said.
The teen, who is being charged as an adult, allegedly confessed "he was in the park and tried to take the girl’s phone and 'she was hanging onto her phone' and that he hit her with a knife."
"Every night I see police lights shining. The NYPD wants to make a point. I get it. I'm just not sure it's the right point."
More than seven weeks after Majors's death, elected and community officials are still searching for ways to allay concerns about safety in the park as well as the broader neighborhood.
The teenager is accused of felony murder, robbery and weapons possession in connection with the fatal stabbing.
'The contents of this message, related to Tess Majors’s recent death, are abhorrent and viciously racist.'
It's believed that this teen is the one who fatally stabbed the college student.
While the Legal Aid Society is concerned with Detective Wilfredo Acevedo's history, NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea praised him.
