Howard is quoted in this article: There are six candidates for Suffolk DA, but one has the lion’s share of police support. Police officers in Boston have overwhelmingly contributed to the campaign of long-time prosecutor Greg Henning. As the article explains, Howard is concerned that Henning’s close working relationship with police officers and the near-exclusive financial support from police officers will make it challenging for him to be impartial in cases where there are allegations of police misconduct. Henning is the only one of the six candidates who says he would not appoint a special prosecutor to investigate when police officers shoot and kill people. The people of Suffolk County deserve a district attorney who will promote police accountability.
