Community on edge after death of Black man at hands of police in Paterson

“I want justice,” the mother of 27-year-old Jameek Lowery, Patrice King, said this week at a Paterson City Council meeting. “I’m not going anywhere until I get the truth.”

The community is outraged and a family is demanding answers after Lowery’s death. Many allege he died after being assaulted by police.

Reports indicate that Lowery walked into Paterson Police Headquarters asking for water early last Saturday. In a Facebook Live video lasting one and a half minutes shot by Lowery, he is seen sweating and foaming at the mouth asking police for help. The officers reply that they aren’t allowed to give him any.
