D.J. Henry’s Parents Meet With New York D.A.

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (CBS/AP) – The parents of D.J. Henry have met with the district attorney coordinating the investigation into their son’s shooting death.

Danroy and Angella Henry drove to White Plains, N.Y., on Monday to attended a hearing on their request to see some of the evidence investigators have gathered.

Their lawyer, Michael Sussman, said they then met with the district attorney. Neither he nor the district attorney’s office would elaborate.

  Michael Sussman speaks with WBZ Producer Ed Golden.

Danroy Henry carried a Bible into court.

Angella Henry wore large buttons bearing photos of her 20-year-old son.

Henry, a Pace University football player, was killed Oct. 17 near the scene of a bar disturbance in Thornwood, N.Y.

Police said he sped away in his car and hit two officers, but some witnesses dispute that account.

    The FBI should have been investigating this, and not the local police.

    The Henry family is in pain that no person should EVER suffer….how can a department investigate itself…are they not prone to human nature to favor themselves…lets face it…ths is injust….inhumane. I appeal to you as parents to think about if it was your child who was dead and killed by the police and they never even contacted you to tell you what had happened..and they won’t let you see the video that explans what happened…come on! You would do EVERYTHING in your power to make sure your child did not die in vain…to understand and to make sure that justice was served in his name….wouldn’t you? OF COURSE YOU WOULD! God Bless the Henry Family!

    generally speaking COPS are ex-high school bullies and troublemakers who “graduated” unanimously. Once they get their gun and tazer, they think that they are finally “the good guy.” Gotta shoot somebody to prove it. COPS suque.
