Police Murder of William “Mark” Henderson in Monroe, La.

June 12, 2020

William "Mark" Henderson was murdered by five Monroe, La. Louisiana police officers in August 2004. The officers shot him with over 20 rounds of Pepper Spray, over 15 bean bag shots and they fired 29 shots at him at close range from the front and back. Twelve shots missed, but 17 shots hit and killed him.
   The officers were never, fired, or reprimanded by the city's Black mayor, Jamie Mayo and a grand jury refused to indict them. When sons of Mr. Henderson sued for wrongful death the City of Monroe represented the rogue cops and avoided paying anything to his family. This podcast revisits that murder with two of the attorneys that represented the family: Former State Senator Charles Jones and Rep. Fred Jones.
