Center for Law and Justice says report on Albany police shooting is flawed

ALBANY -- Activists are pushing back against findings from Albany police that an officer-involved shooting was justified.
“This has limited the community’s access to it and prevented serious examination and review of the findings that they came up,” explained Green.
Another big concern she has is that there's no arresting officer signature on the arrest report.
"I don't understand how he got shot in the back,” said Green “There's probably an explanation but we haven't gotten it to our satisfaction and that's the problem because the community is really concerned about that particular issue."
“Develop some kind of protocol for informing communities of situations like this if it happens again," explained Green.
Albany Police Chief Eric Hawkins released the following statement:
“Dr. Alice Green is a strong advocate for the Albany community and I understand her concerns with the investigation into the recent shooting incident that occurred on Elk Street. A final report into the incident is still being completed and I am willing to discuss the finding with Dr. Green and others in the community so they may better understand. Moving forward, I truly look forward to working with Dr. Green and other community members to build upon the great relationships and success this department has achieved, especially in community policing.”
