WATCH: NJ Cops Shoot Unarmed Man, leaving him Paralyzed during Questionable Detainment

It’s been more than a month since New Jersey cops shot an unarmed man named Jajuan Henderson who had been doing nothing more than retrieving a bottle of ice tea from his baby mother’s car – leaving the 29-year-old man paralyzed from the waist down.

But Trenton police have yet to explain why they confronted Henderson in the first place.

On Friday, the Union County Prosecutor’s Office released four body cameras from the four officers at the scene but at no point in any of those videos does an officer provide Henderson a legitimate reason as to why he needed to provide them his identification and  step out of the car.

Instead, the videos from February 12 show the cops hopping out of a dark unmarked car and confronting Henderson who was sitting inside the car in a parallel parking space with a car in front of it and a car behind it.

The cops were dressed in dark tactical uniforms with SWAT patches on the sleeves. At least one of the cops wore a mask on his face.

“Put the window down,” one of the cops repeatedly tells him while banging on the window with other cops flashing their lights into the car.

Henderson told them they had no probable cause to harass him and refused to open the door or window and provide his identification.

One of the cops then used his baton to repeatedly strike the car window, shattering it.

Evidently fearing for his life, Henderson started the car and attempted to make a getaway, striking both the car in front it and behind it before one of the cops opens fire. One of the bullets struck Henderson’s spine and left him paralyzed.

He was initially charged with four counts of aggravated assault but those charges have been dismissed, according to NJ.com.

He is still facing resisting arrest and obstruction charges but received no citations in relation to the initial stop/detainment whatever reason that may have been.

The full names of the cops have not been released but they have been referred to in a lawsuit filed by Henderson by their initials, M.G., C.H., J.C., and J.L.

Read the lawsuit here and watch the shortened, edited video below. The four unedited videos can be viewed here.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.

  1. that’s some crime spree! sitting in car that’s parked while black and in a high crime area! then comes along the the “jump out boys!” thinking they got them a criminal! when they have NO probable cause! no reasonable suspicion! no authority for a traffic stop!
    we have seen this tactic played out time after time! and less then half of the ones that make it to the idiot box (tv) end up with a lawsuit filed against the blue lies mafia!
