Justice for Jonas Group Wants Council Review of Videotaped Arrest
A recent incident involving Northampton Police and an Amherst man resurfaced at Thursday night’s City Council meeting.  Several representatives of the “Justice for Jonas’ group implored councilors to review the police conduct following an incident where Jonas Correia was hit with mace and subdued by police in front of Tully O’Reilly’s Pub.  A video of the incident went viral on the internet.  Criminal charges against Correia have been dropped, but his civil court case is still pending.
