New Jersey AG Will Leave DeFarra Gaymon’s Cop Shooting to the Local Prosecutor

Despite the ACLU’s request, New Jersey’s State Attorney General Paula Dow won’t take over the investigation into the Newark cop park shooting of Atlanta businessman DeFarra Gaymon, saying there is “no indication of a conflict with the Essex County Prosecutor’s Office handling this case fairly and impartially.” Guess who’s not happy? The ACLU!

Says the organization’s New Jersey executive director Deborah Jacobs: “Every law enforcement official knows it’s essential to have an external review when the public fears a coverup,” she said. “Whether the corruption is a perception or a reality, an external review is the way to address it.”
