Kelly Mercer East,
27, was shot twice in the back by North Brunswick Patrolman Michael
Campbell early in the morning of March 8, 2003, in her apartment.
She was left paralyzed from the waist down after the shooting, with
little chance of recovery. There are still many unanswered
questions about the conduct of the patrolman that morning.
Campbell strangely was not indicted by a grand jury, nor was he
disciplined by the North Brunswick Police. For these reasons, the
family of Kelly Mercer East has privately investigated the case.
with Attorney Mel Sachs and Roy Innis, the National Chairman of the
Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) and the uncle of Kelly Mercer
East – the family has decided to file a $50 million law suit against
East Brunswick, East Brunswick Police Department and Patrolman
