Breaking News: Jury Awards $900K In Malik Jones Case

Between 1996 and 2007, the tri-state area (the East Coast states of Connecticut, New York, and New Jersey) was inundated with incidents between police and the public that were controversial cases of alleged police brutality, which was an understatement in most cases.  On April 14, 1997, in New Haven  Connecticut, what would start out as routine police patrol of a minor traffic complaint ended in a police chase (two white East Haven cops) with the unarmed 21 year old Black male, Malik Jones fatally shot.  This was the introduction to what was yet to come in the tri-state area.

Emma Khadija Jones, J.D.

It is a useful tool for motorists regardless of race, gender, or socioeconomic status. If you are going to drive in America, this is a must read starting point!”
