Alex Cora DeJesus (8216)

8/13/2013: Five Weare police officers lay in wait for DeJesus to take part in a drug sting which fell through. DeJesus attempted to flee in his vehicle. One of the officers shot him in the temple with a shotgun as he passed, despite no evidence of a crime committed, DeJesus being unarmed, and no evidence supporting the police claims of being endangered. Amid much controversy the family took a $300k settlement from the city. The Attorney General said after 8 months, he could not determine if the shooting was justified, so no charges were brought, which is defacto justification.
