Praying While Black: Jury reaches verdict in Mineola trial of Baldwin mourners
It took less than 3 hours for a Mineola jury to acquit two Baldwin residents arrested by First Precinct Police at a prayer vigil three years ago. "Not Guilty." Twice yesterday, the Jury acquited retired U.S. Marine Furnie Oden IV and Jaquan Oden of all criminal charges in the 2020 sweep of mourners on a relative's front lawn.
Miracle Letter Unites Community in Prayer Vigil for 50-year-old Cold Case
August 7, 2022, a 50-year Prayer Vigil was held on the steps of Springfield, NJ townhall for murdered 16-year-old Jeannette DePalma. It was a beautiful evening service that featured Pastor Brennan from Evangel Church in Scotch Plains, NJ, Deputy Mayor Chris Weber of Springfield, NJ and Ed Salzano representing Justice for Jeannette. The Vigil was unifying and was inspired by Jeannette's mother, Florence DePalma’s dying wish from many years ago.
