GAG ORDER!!!!!!!!!!!

If there is nothing to hide why the gag order?  If the evidence supports the Pleasantville and Mount Pleasant Police Departments statements of what occurred the night of October 17, 2010 why try to suppress it. A "source close to the investigation" revealed the "blood alcohol level" why isn't there a source close to the investigation revealing what is on the videos?   The truth serves us all - independent of whose side you support.

Mount Plesant police injure bicyclist.

When will Mount Pleasant Police Chief Louis Algano finally admit that his officers need proper training on how to use their firearms.  State park police called Mount Plesant Police offers to euthanize a raccoon and they shot and killed the raccoon with a .40-caliber handgun and shot a bicyclist at the same time.  On October 17, 2010 when they were called to Finnegans to disburse the crowd they shot and killed DJ with a .40-caliber handgun.  Is this the only way they know how to respond by shooting innocent people?

Justice for DJ: The Absolute Truth About What Happened 10/17/10

Saturday, October 16, 2010, Danroy “DJ” Henry played what ended up to be his last homecoming football game. DJ was a junior at Pace University, who was a corner back on the football team. DJ was a great student who enjoyed life, loved his family, loved sports, and always put God first.

That Saturday, The Henry family came to New York from Easton, MA to spend the day with DJ. They watched him play his homecoming game and took him to dinner afterwards. DJ’s family left New York around 6:00pm to head back home. DJ’s best friend Brandon Cox who is a football player at Stonehill College in Massachusetts had played against DJ is their homecoming football game. Brandon was spending the weekend with DJ at Pace University that weekend. DJ was with Brandon at all times because Brandon was not familiar with Pace and he didn’t want him to be uncomfortable. DJ, Brandon and some other friends from the Pace football team went to go out to Finnegan’s Bar & Grill that Saturday night.

DJ and two friends left the bar because of a disturbance and police were called to Finnegan’s. They were not involved in the incident that brought police to Finnegan’s that night. DJ and his two friends went to get his car and pulled up to the front of Finnegan’s so the other two friends could see him when they came out. DJ was asked to move out of the fire lane by a Mt. Pleasant police officer. He was not trying to flee the scene. He was simply going to do a loop around the parking lot to come back and pick up his friends.

By his own admission, Mr. Aaron Hess, a Pleasantville police officer, stepped in front of DJ’s car and left DJ very little time to stop. Witnesses, including the front seat passenger, cars parked behind DJ’s, and the bar owner, stated that DJ’s car was trying to stop before Mr. Hess opened fire on DJ’s car. Ballistic and forensic evidence prove that Aaron Hess opened fire on DJ’s car before being struck by the vehicle. In the early morning of October 17, 2010, DJ was killed by multiple gunshots and his front seat passenger was shot in the arm. His back seat passenger had bullet holes on either side of him. Hess’ intentions were evident by the amount of bullets he fired into a moving vehicle.

Witness from the scene verify that DJ was then dragged out of the car, handcuffed and left on the ground face down without CPR for 10-15 minutes. DJ’s parents were informed by the Westchester Medical Center that police had shot their son because “he was running officers down”. No one from either police department reached out to the Henry family to tell them what happened to DJ. It wasn’t until DJ’s father, Danory Sr. called the police department and asked them to meet with him and his family to tell them what happened to their son. The initial statement stated that DJ hit three officers, but in the matter of minutes the statement than changed to DJ only hitting one officer. Chief Alagno of the Mt. Pleasant police department stated that none of his officers were seriously injured and they all went home that night.



There are many things that took place after the shooting by the local police that are very suspicious and unjust. The same police departments that were involved in the taking of DJ’s life also investigated DJ’s death. These same departments collected evidence against themselves. They took both the surveillance tapes and the hard drives from the business in the shopping area. It is also very important to know that not one of the dash cameras from either police departments’ vehicles were operable the night DJ was killing. Also, DJ’s autopsy was performed without any representation from the Henry family despite being informed that the family would be sending someone. DJ’s cell phone service provider confirmed that DJ’s phone was used twice without permission after DJ was killed. Two large data transfers were made on his phone, which could include pictures, music or any info that was saved on his phone. When the Henry family brought this information to the Westchester District Attorney, Janet DiFiore, she told the family his phone was only used to see whom it belonged to. This isn’t true because the police took DJ’s cell phone out of his pocket while he laid on the ground handcuffed and bleeding to death. The police chief claims police left DJ handcuffed on the ground because they didn’t know he was shot. After firing five bullets into a moving vehicle, three of which went straight through the windshield aimed directly at the driver, they somehow thought no one was hit. DJ’s last words were him screaming “they shot me, they shot me” yet the police claim they didn’t know he was hurt as he bled out on the ground.



Another unjust gesture by the officials in Westchester County is that the medical examiner “leaked” unsubstantiated blood alcohol content, 4 days after DJ was killed after they told the Henry family the autopsy would take weeks. The BAC claimed to be .13 when in fact the autopsy states that there was no alcohol in DJ’s digestive track and system. A trace amount was found in his stomach, not nearly enough to give him a .13 BAC reading. DJ had half of a mixed drink around 9pm and didn’t finish it once he realized he would be the designated driver. Witnesses including the bar owner of Finnegan’s stated that DJ did not drink the entire time he was out that night. The police as well as the medical examiner’s office have repeatedly told the press that DJ was “drunk” that night.

After the police left DJ face down on the ground without any first aid, DJ’s friends and teammates tried to save his life by requesting to give him CPR. In return, the police beat, tasered, and threatened these students with guns to their heads and chests and told they would be next. These young men of are all different ethnicities, were also arrested and brought up on charges. Multiple YouTube videos show officers clearly out of control, as they were waving their loaded guns and yelling racial slurs at unarmed students, including young women. After four months, the DA dropped all charges against DJ’s teammates, claiming she was “siding with justice”. It’s believed that DA received pressure from the judge to release all audio and videotapes from that night (which still has not been released) which prompted her to drop all charges. The DA, Janet DiFiore, claims that she will release all tapes if asked. The Henry family has asked several times, once in court but was told no because it would “sway” a grand jury. How could these videos of true events “sway” a grand jury?

The grand jury decided not to indict Aaron Hess based off of whatever evidence the DA presented to them. The following day the Department of Justice announced they would be doing a full investigation into this case. The main concern everyone had was whether or not all evidence including all audio and surveillance tapes will be handed over to the Department of Justice by the Westchester DA.

Since the tragic events of October 17, 2010, the Pleasantville police chief from, Chief Chiarati has retired, the other officer who opened fire on DJ’s car, Officer Ronald Beckley has retired, and Finnegan’s Bar has closed. Aaron Hess was also named “officer of the year” by his police union after killing DJ Henry and while currently being investigated by the Department of Justice.

DJ followed all the rules, has never been in any type of trouble, yet he was killed in such an inhumane way by the very people that are here to protest us. DJ Henry grew up in a middle/upper class community, and was well known in his community as a quiet, gentle and giving young man. Many were influenced by the way he lived his life. He was a great young man. Please help us get justice for DJ.

WINGS OF HOPE: NATIONAL RALLY

Saturday, April 16, 2011

facebook/twitter event SUNDAY APRIL 17TH


More Info
The 17th of April will make it 6 months since DJ was taken from us. We've now decided that we'd like to make the 17th of every month will be "I AM DJ HENRY" day. We're asking that for one day out of the month everyone puts there status to I AM DJ HENRY and will also display this picture as their profile picture. This is to show that it could've been any of us that night!

Our goal is to gain attention from the media as well as kee...p the story alive! Aside from changing your profile picture and Facebook status, we are asking that everyone film a clip saying "I AM DJ HENRY". You can either email it in to justice4dj@gmail.com or you may post it on the Justice for DJ page on 17th to show your support.

For those who aren't familiar with the events of October 17th, 2010, your Facebook status and profile picture will trigger the question "Who is DJ Henry?". We want you to continue to spread the story and let people know how they can help!

The purpose of a facebook/twitter event is to not only gain recognition from the media, but to educate as many people as possible. That day we will release an I AM DJ HENRY video and we need EVERYONE to post it on their Facebook, Twitter (#IAMDJHENRY), blogs... whatever you have! There are over 4,400 people in this group and we need everyone to stand with us!

PLEASE INVITED EVERYONE ON YOUR FRIENDS LIST & REPOST THIS EVENT!!!!

Thank you so much for all your support!

...all for #12♥

WINGS OF HOPE EVENT



((NOT JUST FOR STUDENTS, ANYONE MAY PARTICIPATE!!!))

We want to find a way to show our support for DJ & his family! This could be considered a silent protest that could be done in school without getting in trouble, leaving class, or doing anything different than you do everyday.

Everyone would have a white balloon, draw the #12 on it with wings, and tie it to their bookbag or whatever it is that they carry for the day... so it lo...oks like a little angel floating above you. Its a simple but strong way to get attention whether you're at school, work, on the train, etc. We don't want people to just wear it at school, but to also wear it when they go out for the day.

We need as many students to participate as possible!!! The national media is covering the story of Aaron Hess receiving an award after murdering DJ Henry and they want to see if students will do anything at all.

Please stand with us and make a statement! Some students have spring break next week so if your school does please let us know.

The main thing we want people to do is to get as many students on their campus as possible and to contact their local media. All the local media coverage from around the country will inevitably lead to national coverage which is what we need more of. For this police officer to get an award is absolutely disgraceful and we need to do something to show we're not okay with it! We want to make sure people wear their balloons EVERYWHERE they go that day whether it be on campus, to the store, out to eat, whatever!

If you have any questions or need help organizing at your school please contact us at justice4dj@gmail.com

Thank you for your support!!!

...all for #12...

    Link to radio interview with Dan & Angella on WQAM today...

    http://www.wqam.com/index.php?page=347

    letter to DOJ to print and mail

    To Whom It May Concern:



    We express gratitude to the Department of Justice for undertaking an investigation into the killing of Danroy “DJ” Henry in Westchester County, New York. The seemingly biased and inept investigation conducted by the various Police Departments involved, has offended our sense of justice and raised considerable doubts as to the integrity of the procedures followed in the handling of this case.



    We trust that the Department of Justice will use all of the resources at its disposal when investigating this matter to ensure that justice is served. This includes gathering information independently rather than relying on data received from local agencies, speaking directly to witnesses and accessing and viewing any and all electronic recordings of that evening’s events. Because without an exhaustive investigation into the possibility that misconduct may have been perpetrated on the part of the responding officers, we may never truly understand the events which took place and this matter may never fully be put to rest.



    We urge the Department of Justice to demand transparency, accountability, and truthfulness from the officers involved and the police departments as a whole. We believe that these are the most fundamental tenets of the service that law enforcement officers provide to our society, and it is only through the universal application of these values that we can ensure the fair and impartial administration of justice for all citizens.



    Again, thank you for your commitment to this matter.



    Respectfully Yours,

    Respectfully Yours,

    a letter to print and mail to Andrew M. Cuomo Governor of New York State

    Date



    The Honorable Andrew M. Cuomo

    Governor of New York State

    NYS State Capitol Building

    Albany, NY 12224



    Dear Governor Cuomo:



    On October 17, 2010, a wonderful young man was shot and killed by Pleasantville, New York police officer Aaron Hess for reasons still unknown. The young man was Danroy (DJ) Henry, Jr. He was a Pace University student, he played football for Pace. DJ was loving, kind and a vital part of the lives of so many people who miss him desperately.



    From the start, the circumstances surrounding DJ's death have been rife with contradictions, suspicious actions and statements on the part of the police, and flagrant wrongs on the part the entire hierachy of Law Enforcement of Westchester County, New York, from the level of the police upward to District Attorney Janet DiFiore's office.



    The United States Department of Justice is now investigating this case and while it's determination is gratefully awaited, more needs to be done. It is important that as many eyes as possible review the details and evidence of this case. Recently, a New York Grand Jury failed to indict Officer Aaron Hess, but this determination seems to be more of a symptom of the issues in Westchester County rather than a fair decision based on evidence.



    Thank you in advance for any and all attention that you may be able to give to this egregious matter.



    Sincerely yours,



    (name)

    For reasons still unknown, the prosecution has refused to release the video tapes from the bank & 911 records.. (well, we know why, it would shine a light on all the lies). They have also thrown up a few other roadblocks that have nothing to do with anything (some kind of conflict of interest).. All in all, new court date 3/24...
    KEEP ...FIGHTING!!!

    Letter for Accountability

    To:

    Name

    Zip

    Greeting

    In the early morning hours of October 17, 2010, the life of a much beloved, promising, vital young man was taken from his family, friends, teammates and all of us who needed him here. The young man was Danroy (DJ) Henry, a Pace University student from Easton, Massachusetts. He was killed by police officers in New York. DJ had been asked to move his car from a fire lane spot where it was idling as he and 2 other friends awaited the arrival of 2 more friends who needed a ride home. For reasons still unknown and increasingly perplexing, a different officer (Aaron Hess) jumped in front of DJ's vehicle with his gun already drawn. As DJ complied with the first officer's order, Hess shot DJ, and his friend. DJ later died. Another officer also shot at the still moving vehicle with a wounded driver and with an officer on the hood. Reckless at best.

    Since then, the Henry Family and many thousands of supporters have been on a quest for the Absolute Truth. This has not been an easy task with many roadblocks and walls erected intentionally in order to thwart the effort. Currently, the Grand Jury has convened in New York and there is hope that the full truth will be revealed and that justice will occur.

    The journey for the truth has amplified a glaring need for Police Accountability not only in this case but also across this nation. Not only is DJ not the first Citizen to die at the hands of police during a faulty use of deadly force, he is already not the last. Since June 24, 2010, several wonderful young men have been killed by police officers: Zac Champommier, Douglas Zerby, Reginald Doucet. Each of these deaths involves good young men who should still be alive, who had done nothing that warranted a police imposed Death Penalty. Each of these deaths was followed by police secrecy, police investigation of themselves, and police abuse of their power by brutalizing, arresting witnesses and arranging unprofessional news conferences to declare that those who died at fault for their own deaths. There was clear misuse of vague Deadly Force policy as justification and in DJ Henry's case, a direct violation of the amended Deadly Force Policy in New York which prohibited police from shooting at moving vehicles.

    With DJ Henry, police were shown to be lying immediately. First reports indicated that police were only trying to disable the vehicle. When reporters then published a photo of DJ's vehicle, it was clear that the police wanted to "disable" the driver. Then comes an inappropriate, unprofessional Police Chief from Mt. Pleasant Police Department stating that DJ had tried to kill the police officer with his vehicle. An investigation had only begun just mere hours before and shows without question where the "investigation" was already headed. When the police press conference did not quell the growing outrage over this needless death of a wonderful young man, a so-called alcohol level (DJ's) was "leaked" to the press less than days after an autopsy was completed when it could not have possibly been ready since post mortem alcohol levels take weeks to complete.

    The Henry Family allowed the Autopsy Report to be published when complete and still more disturbing information came to light. DJ, who was critically wounded by police, was dragged from the vehicle, thrown face down to the ground (per witnesses), handcuffed, and very obviously roughed up by police and verified by various wounds and lacerations noted in the Autopsy Report. The alcohol level mysteriously matched the "leaked" one which immediately raises a valid question of it's accuracy. It's relevance is immediately questioned anyway and has been since it was first "leaked" in order to prejudice the public. Inconsistencies abound in the police "story" and a Grand Jury is presently trying to sort all of it out. Hopefully, this will result in indictments against those responsible for DJ's needless death.

    Across this nation, good, dedicated Law Enforcement professionals exist in great numbers. However, in their midst are unprofessional, poorly trained, dishonest individuals who have no place in a professional organization who pledge to Serve and Protect all of us citizens and our communities who pay their salaries and have every right to hold them Accountable for their actions.

    Since 9/11/01, police brutality has increased steadily. One of the main reasons cited for this increase is that returning military veterans are being hired into police departments and that many police departments have also taken on a more paramilitary "tone" since that time which is even reflected in how some officers/departments dress. While not casting aspersions on veterans who served, there is a type of training that military combatants receive that is vastly different from the training civilian police officers receive. This places immediate need and responsibility onto Police Chiefs for not properly overseeing re-training of veterans and also monitoring these officers for signs of possible post war traumatic symptoms that might affect his performance in the field. Coincidentally, Officer Aaron Hess served in Iraq.

    Police Accountability to all of us whom they serve has become a critical need nationwide. Proposed are many changes that will satisfy this need if employed as they should.

    1. Police Accountability (General) and to a Civilian Accountability Board in cases of brutality complaints and most definitely (always) in the event of a shooting, whether fatal or not. This board should have power to determine whether or not further investigation or actions against the police are warranted.

    2. Tighten Deadly force policy across the country so that it cannot be misused as it repeatedly has been. An officer should not be able to lie or just simply utter "my life was in danger" in order to quell all investigations into his/her actions. It seems to be too often the case that it is immediately accepted if an officer states he "felt threatened".

    3. Immediate investigation into all police shootings (fatal or not) or complaints of brutality (fatal or not) by a LE entity NOT connected to the police department involved and that the involved policed departments can NEVER be involved in their own investigations into a fatal shooting.

    4. Random alcohol and drug testing for all police officers and immediate drug and alcohol testing of all involved officers in the event of a police involved fatality. (No officers were tested following the death of DJ Henry)

    5. Critical and ongoing training for all police officers to avoid situations such as what happened to DJ Henry when his friends and teammates wanted only to try to assist him medically and an obviously hyped up officer was darting through the crowd pointing his outstretched gun at unarmed students, using foul expletives, telling them they "were next". Police were obviously poorly trained to handle crowd dispersal.

    6. Psychological profiling of police officers before hiring and monitored as needed after hiring.

    7. Accountability in general for Police Chiefs and departments to police themselves in their behaviors or be held accountable. No more covering for the hair trigger, abusive cop. No more covering for a cop who coworkers may suspect has a psychiatric issue---take care of it or be held accountable for not having done so.

    Thank you for reading this lengthy letter. Legislation needs to be written and passed to provide for Police Accountability. Police Departments across America need to be trained to uniformly function within the boundaries of their very own creedo 'To Protect and Serve'.

    Sincerely yours,

    (name, address, town, state)
