Corey Jones

The Florida cop who fatally shot Corey Jones lied to investigators. Newly released evidence contradicts his sworn statements.

Alton Sterling’s death at the hands of Baton Rouge police officers and the recent shooting of Philando Castile, who was shot by Minnesota police during a routine traffic stop, are just two of many that fall into the same category ― Black people being assaulted and killed by police while performing normal, day-to-day tasks.

Family, friends, and supporters of Corey Jones gathered to pay their respects to the musician on Monday evening after he was fatally shot by a plainclothes police officer early Sunday morning.
