Jamaican chemistry student and Uber driver, Maurice Gordon, was killed by police during a traffic stop along a highway in New Jersey last month.
Gordon, who was living in New York, was killed two days before the murder of George Floyd by police in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Dancehall artiste Spice shared a news report of the killing on Instagram, saying this is “why I’m in America protesting well here’s a Jamaican man that was unarmed and killed by Police in America.”
Ce’Cile wrote, “Well, let’s see how strong the Jamaican community is, or how much we care.”
Veteran selector Tony Matterhorn asked, “Where are all the Jamaicans on this becuz this needs justice,” while Spragga Benz said “Enough is ENOUGH!!!!”
The incident is being investigated by the Attorney General’s Office of Public Integrity & Accountability (OPIA), and the officer who killed Gordon has since been placed on paid administrative leave.
Following an investigation by the OPIA, the case will be tried by a grand jury and criminal charges will be decided and filed
