SMH: Details In Cop Killing Of Danroy Henry Keep Getting Worse… Police Tasered Pace Player’s Pals To Prevent CPR

- By Bossip Staff

New details have emerged in the police shooting death of Danroy Henry that only turn our stomachs further.

Teammates of the Pace University football player mortally wounded by police gunfire were prevented from giving him CPR — and two others were Tasered during the chaotic aftermath of a Westchester bar brawl, two lawyers charged yesterday.

Bonita Zelman, a lawyer for one of the young men, said that when a player begged a cop to let him give aid to Danroy “DJ” Henry Sunday, the officer put a gun against his ribs and threatened to shoot him before arresting him.

“It’s frankly incomprehensible how the circumstance got to where it got,” Zelman said.

Family members of slain college gridder Danroy Henry posted this flier at their home after cops shot him through his car window.

Henry was shot as he tried to drive from Finnegan’s bar following a fight that had spilled onto the street.

Police also shot Henry’s best friend, Brandon Cox, who was in the car, and prevented him from trying to revive his pal, said civil-rights lawyer Michael Sussman, who has been hired by Henry’s family.

Cops also Tasered and arrested two other teammates after the shooting, both lawyers said.

Mount Pleasant Police Chief Louis Alagno said he was unaware that a cop had threatened to shoot one of Henry’s teammates, but earlier had said officers followed proper procedure by handcuffing everyone who had been in the car because the cops were treating the situation as a “felony vehicle stop.”

The shocking new allegations emerged as US Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.), said, “We’re going to ask for an investigation, obviously, a thorough investigation,” of the police killing of Henry, who is from North Easton, Mass.

“. . . I think it’s important to get the facts and get them quickly,” Brown told a Massachusetts radio station.

Mount Pleasant cops, New York State Police and the Westchester District Attorney’s Office are conducting an intensive probe of the shooting.

Henry, 20, was shot by police because the Pace junior allegedly drove his car into two officers while pulling out of a fire lane outside the bar.

Sussman said cops’ version of events have been “at least severely contradicted if not entirely refuted.”

He said witnesses claim that Henry began driving off after a cop ordered him to do so — and that another officer sprang in front of the car, gun drawn, and began firing.

Sussman also said that after the young men were shot in the car, Cox got out and saw Henry get dragged into the street and handcuffed — lying there for up to 15 minutes without receiving medical attention.

This is so jacked up. Why does it seem like police have no value for human lives? Especially when we’re talking about black men.

DJ Henry was a good kid. They really didn’t have to shoot into that windshield, and furthermore — why wasn’t he allowed treatment for his injuries?

    police are commanded to shoot to kill thats why when they say n@ggah freeze I turn into a sculpture…still a sad situation

  • Sabrina The Teenage Bytch

    This story is very infuriating. These officers took this man’s life for no reason!!!! the murder was unjustified, yet white people are still attempting to justify the death of henry by calling him a”thug”

    I want these cops to burn in hell, I want to hear their teeth pop from the heat. Pieces of shyt, racist f_cking cops are always trigger happy when it comes to black men and i’m tired of it.

  • Greeneyedbandit

    I agree,, that sh-t needs to be blocked and anybody with any damn sense unless they are racist can see this was some funky foul crap! I hope his family sues the sh-t out of that police and that damn dept… but we all know the jealousy and hatfulness white men have for black men but this sh-t is ridamdiculous!!!!

  • Illuminate Truth …"I Don't Luv U Enuff 2 Hate U"

    If Black people had true unity (and a true sense of self preservation) we would all be at that police station…and I’m not talking about to march with pick-it signs singing ol’ nee-grow spirituals either. We should be pulling those cops out and stomping them one by one until we get the right one. KCUF the pigs.

  • Bren

    Is this what our tax dollars are paying for? Don’t we have say so as to where our money is to be spent? We as a people do not want these racist gun happy police officers shooting our people any longer..THEY ARE FIRED! GET RID OF THESE COPS!! WE DONT NEED THEM!

    Soooo sick of hearing ppl abuse their power like this… This young man lost his life for no reason other than b/c these heartless fools chose to hide behind a badge that was meant to protect us…

  • sportstalk23

    Typical thing in this state cops shoot you then will guarantee you will die just to prove your the threat which these kids weren’t,it was a rowdy fight and the cops were there to disperse the crowd, nobody should have gotten shot, what the hell was 5-0 doing jumping on the car, the boys thought they better move their car,but if your black that’s all they need to deem you a threat, even if you aren’t one
    Doesn’t matter if its Westchester,NY,Upstate,Long Island its the same mentality

  • LaDiva

    Hey girl… How’s it going.

    My prayers go out to his family and freinds. This is a sad story and the cops need to be taken care of accordingly. They have NO right to take a life. Their life wasn’t in danger so y are u shooting at someone’s car. These mf’s know they will get away with this, but remember God NEVER sleeps.

  • this is it

    What the hell!!! You sound ignorant. Go say that stuff to the white girls, they the only ones who want to hear what you got to say.

  • eye

    Reading this makes me very upset. I can’t even imagine how his parents feel. My deepest sympathy to his family. Please keep this in the news. It would be nice if Obama or Holder went to his funeral to pay their respects. They know this is just plain wrong.
