Aspiring Cop Gets No Legal Help From NAACP

posted on June 5, 2015

We have covered the infuriating case of Steffon Josey-Davis, a New Jersey security officer and police hopeful whose life was shattered when he was detained for accidentally carrying his legally owned firearm in the glove compartment of his car. He now has a felony conviction that makes it difficult to do something as simple as renting an apartment and bars him from his desired line of employment.

Josey-Davis, who is black, recently announced on an interview with Fox News that he reached out to the NAACP for help in filing an appeal, but they have refused to work with him. “They say ‘black lives matter,’ but obviously they really don’t, because I don’t fit their agenda …” he said. “I’m not getting shot by a police officer, so they’re not going to come out and defend me.” It is troubling, indeed, to see this tolerance of injustice from what once was a great civil rights organization.
