Cops View: Man Shot 24 Times - My9 New Jersey

Cops View: Man Shot 24 Times

Posted: Updated:
Belleville, New Jersey (My9NJ) -

The Chasers continue to discuss the shooting in Belleville, New Jersey that resulted in a man being shot 24 times by local police.  This time Kate tracked down more family members who believe that Dante was targeted by police.  His past arrest records show that Dante had other run-ins with domestic violence as well as assault on a police offer. 

The family is pleading for more answers and has even turned to social media to get their story out there and the reaction to this case is overwhelming.  Many people are saying that this is racism and reaching out to support the family.  They are also starting a letter writing campaign to Belleville officials to make sure this incident doesn't get swept under the rug. 

In order to get the other side of the story, the Chasers invited a Prosecutor to the studio to get a cops view of how this all went down.  He explains how these situations are always frantic and officers as well as the family are often left in shock after these situations.  In the end, it's a very traumatic time for the victim's family and friends, and these are also very difficult situations for the officers themselves, their family's and the police departments.
