Leon Ford Jr.’s entire life changed last November after a routine traffic stop escalated to gun shots, leaving Ford paralyzed.
His family believes the Pittsburgh officers involved acted unlawfully. Now they are seeking justice for Ford who still faces charges.
Ford Jr.’s attorney Benjamin Crump said,“It’s outrageous when you really think about the fact that Mr. Ford’s son was pulled over, we believe, because he was a Black male. He [Ford Jr.] gave his license, his registration, everything came back clear and it matched who he was. That was not good enough for the police officers.”
