Around 3 am on October 18, 2015, Corey Jones was just trying to get home from a gig where he’d been drumming when his car broke down. He had no way of knowing that the call he made to roadside assistance would be the only way his final moments on Earth would be heard.
While he was making the call, Officer Nouman Raja drove up and a few minutes later he called 911 to say that Jones was dead. Did Nouman Raja murder Corey Jones? The AT&T audio recording used to tell Jones’s story says yes, but whether or not it’s going to net a conviction for Raja is still up in the air.
Killer cops are a frightening reality in the world in which we live. In many cases, cops who murdered people walk free because their badges give them the freedom to decide whether or not someone is a threat. In many instances, a body or dash cam can help the public understand the details when a cop kills someone, but there was no body or dash cam in the shooting of Corey Jones, which makes the facts opaque at best.
