Maurice S. Gordon, 28, was shot and killed May 23 on the Garden State Parkway in Bass River, where he was pulled over by a New Jersey State Police trooper, the New Jersey Attorney’s General Office announced late last month.
Gordon, who was black, was unarmed when he was shot by a white trooper several times during the incident. The trooper handcuffed the Poughkeepsie resident after shooting him, Wagstaff said.
Gordon, a chemistry student at New York’s Dutchess Community College, worked as an Uber driver and it’s unclear if he was working at the time, but he could have been picking up a fare, Wagstaff told the newspaper.
In a portion of video provided by the attorney general’s office, Wagstaff said Gordon was frisked before being put in a police cruiser, the Wall Street Journal reported.
Some 30 minutes later, after not being told why he was being held, Gordon tried to get out of the police vehicle — and the trooper responded roughly just before multiple gunshots and Gordon’s screams are heard, Wagstaff said.
The video then shows a trooper picking up Gordon’s body before dropping it and handcuffing him, the attorney said.
Это вам не Флойд. Парня арестовали, запихнули в патрульную машину и держали там полчаса не объясняя ничего. Когда ему надоело и он начал качать права, выбрался из машины, его пристрелили, заковали в наручники (!) и сдали медикам. Парниша учился в колледже на химика и подрабатывал на Убере. Может от амфетамины варил, конечно (химики часто такое делают), но тогда почему его сразу не отвезли в кутузку???
