Petitioning Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance

Drop the Charges against Joseph "Jazz" Hayden

Joseph "Jazz" Hayden was arrested in December, 2011 by police officers after an illegal stop and search of his car. This stop was direct retaliation for Mr. Hayden's work in the Harlem community filming police officers conducting illegal car stops and stop-and-frisks. Several months before, Mr. Hayden filmed the very same officers who arrested him conducting an illegal car stop. For more information on Joseph "Jazz" Hayden, please visit
