“All I want is justice for my son,” Naz told the council, “and I felt disrespected by the Mayor and Commissioner Fatigate who was there from the beginning… what for photo ops? (see her whole statement in video below).

“Right now we don’t have any confidence in the police department, and I’m saying this because we don’t,” Wilfred Dennis tells the Council. (see Wilfred’s statement in the video below).

BW Publisher, Damon K. Jones, discusses being cyber stalked by Deputy Police Commissioner Joseph Spiezio and how Naz called him the minute she got the call about her son’s murder and drove her from hospital to hospital looking for her son, because the police could not or would not tell her where her son’s body was taken. (see Damon’s statement in the video below).

“Don’t Speak About it, Live It,” Nazarean Duncan shares with BW. “Come out in Peace and Solidarity as I continue my quest for Justice⚖️ not just for Junior but the other Mothers Fathers and Families that are Unsolved Murders and swept to the wayside by Our Officials. We have to make it known that WE Demand Professionalism and Accountability and exterminate the CHILDISH BEHAVIORS that had been portrayed our lives are at stake. “Be The Change We Expected” Be your Slain family members voice get them the Justice they deserve.
