Transcript for NYPD commissioner apologizes for the 1969 Stonewall raid

Well I'm certainly not going to stand up here pretend to be an expert on what happened at Stonewall. I do know what happened should not have happened. The actions taken by the NYPD were wrong. Plain and simple. The actions in the laws were discriminatory and oppressive. And for that I apologize. The LG BTQ community that this would never happen and NYPD 2019.
