Jajuan Henderson’s life was forever changed when he was shot and left paralyzed by Trenton police while sitting alone in a parked car armed with nothing more than an iced tea. Yesterday, a Mercer County grand jury concluded that the officers’ actions were “justified.”

At what point will police and politics stop taking priority over the needs and well-being of the people?
