Commenting on the arrests, Bryant’s mother appeared sorry for everyone involved. “It’s a shame,” Jenaii Van Doten told the Daily News. “But at the same time, we lost three young men because these two will go to jail for the murder of my son.”
A grand jury is expected to present evidence of Pacheco and Landron’s involvement in Bryant’s murder Friday.
In an essay she wrote for the News last week, Bryant said Stop & Frisk could’ve saved her son’s life. “Some people are saying stop-and-frisks are terrorizing our kids,” she said. “Some kids need to be terrorized. Maybe my son wouldn’t have been shot if the right kids were terrorized.”
Though she made it clear that the tactic needs to be modified so that it does not unfairly target people who are not breaking the law.
