New York Jets owner Woody Johnson has pledged to make sure the names of the players who have been charged in the deaths of two New York City police officers will be checked in a database that would be available to the public, Fox Sports reported.
In a statement released Tuesday, Johnson said he would request that a database be created that would include the names and addresses of the people who have died, the names, addresses, dates of birth and other identifying information of any person charged in connection with the death of NYPD Officer Rafael Ramos.
Johnson said the NYPD had told him that the information will be kept private, but he said he was not satisfied that that had been the case.
Ramos, who was shot and killed by New York police Officer Wenjian Liu in September, died a week later of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Johnson did not name the individuals he was looking for in the database.
