CAIR-NJ Action Alert: Call on AG to Prosecute Officers in Paterson Police Brutality Incident

(2/25/21) — CAIR-New Jersey is calling on all state residents to urge New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal to prosecute the Paterson Police officers who attacked Osamah Alsaidi.

While CAIR-New Jersey welcomed Attorney General Grewal’s investigation into the Paterson Police Officers’ attack, enough time has passed to charge the offending police officers.


CAIR-New Jersey continues to call for a full and transparent investigation into the related attacks against Rosdward Hernadez and Dysia Leak, two additional incidents of police abuse that took place weeks prior to Alsaidi’s attack, with the same officers from Alsaid’s case.
