Jewu Richardson, survivor of police brutality, recently filed a racial profiling and internal affairs complaint against the NHPD in response to continued harassment by police officers the day following his critical commentary at a racial profiling meeting hosted the Connecticut Commission of Human Rights.

Richardosn, who was on call with his attorney, Donald Weisman, during the police harassment  is demanding retribution from city and state officials. Weisman, serving as a witness, submitted an affidavit stating the harassment Richardson underwent while on call.

Amidst ongoing NHPD harassment Jewu faces a retrial after receiving a mistrial, courageously defending his freedom against false charges the NHPD used to "justify" deadly force nearly killing Jewu unarmed and surrendered.

The State is preparing to try Mr. Richardson again for the same charges they failed to convict him of in the first trial!

Sign the new petition to stop the state from getting a second chance to put an innocent man in jail:
New Haven area lawyer Norm Pattis writes about the mistrial and the likelihood of a second trial

"The state failed to persuade all six of the jurors in Mr. Richardson’s case that he was guilty as charged... But here’s what I will never understand: The state failed to prove its case in the first trial. Why isn’t the presumption of innocence enough to acquit Mr. Richardson altogether and to end this criminal prosecution once and for all?"

A mistrial has been declared in Jewu Richardson's case on Friday, April 12 2013. 

Jurors state they couldn’t bring themselves to convict Richardson after the actions police took!

After two days of deliberation the Jury could not come to a unanimous decison any of the charges. The Jury's note to Judge Mullins stated:

"We are not making progress,we have less consensus today than yesterday. One fundamental issue dominates EVERY discussion of every element of every charge. The guilt or innocence of the police. Not all jurors can exclude this topic from any element of any charge.“Juror quote: ‘They broke the law. How can you convict anyone of anything in such a case?’
