For 15 years, Emma Jones, greatly assisted by a liberal media that couldn't get enough of her, has made the state's residents, especially those in New Haven County, endure ceaseless attention to her claim that racist policies and practices of the Town of East Haven caused the death of her 21-year old son. In 1997, Malik Jones was fatally shot by a town police officer after he defied orders to pull over his vehicle and led police in a dangerous, high-speed chase into New Haven. The car finally got stuck in a ditch and an officer approached it on foot. Instead of giving up, a PCP-drugged Jones chose to throw his car into reverse, hit the gas, and attempt to run over the officer. It was that choice that cost him his life.
