Police Killing

Police fatally shot a 6-year-old child, making Jeremy Mardis the youngest person to be killed by police this year and proving that police practices across the board should be examined, no matter which communities they serve.

Christie sent a letter Tuesday to Port Authority chairman John Degnan demanding the return of Joanne Chesimard, known as Assata Shakur. The revolutionary activist was convicted of killing a New Jersey State trooper in 1973.
