Governor Christie Pardons Aspiring Black Cop Steffon Josey-Davis

On June 8, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (R) pardoned aspiring black cop Steffon Josey-Davis.

Breitbart News previously reported that Davis was pulled over for a routine traffic violation in 2013 and thereafter charged with a second-degree felony for a having a legally owned gun in his glove compartment.

The felony derailed Davis’ hopes of being a police officer. He reached out to the NAACP for legal help, but they refused to get involved. Davis speculated on the NAACP’s refusal, saying, “Basically, like, I’m not getting shot by a police officer so they’re not going to come out and defend me.”

After being snubbed by the NAACP, Davis’ only remaining hope of getting the felony removed was via an appeal for pardon to Governor Christie.

Davis requested a pardon from Christie in January. And according to an AP report, Christie has now pardoned Davis.
