William O. Wagstaff III, Esq. on behalf of the family of Maurice Gordon Jr., a 28-year-old Black man who was shot and killed by a NJ State Trooper, applauds New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy for mandating all law enforcement officials wear body cameras.

Wagstaff represents the family of Maurice Gordon Jr. who was shot and killed by NJ Trooper Randall Wetzel on the Garden State Parkway on May 23, 2020.

"A body camera would have allowed Maurice's family to better understand the final moments of their loved one's life. While this new law is commendable, it underscores a lack of uniformity and transparency that advocates, and civil rights attorneys have been pushing for for years," said Wagstaff.

“As we’re learning about this new law, it comes days before Thanksgiving. This is the first Thanksgiving without our son. So while this is a step in the right direction, it’s a day late and dollar short. We continue to demand justice for Maurice," said Maurice Gordon Jr.'s family.
