Pace University student Damonae Hargrove was the picture of Election Day persistence.

Hobbled by a ruptured Achilles’ tendon, she was determined to cast her ballot Tuesday, have her vote be counted and her voice be heard.

“By casting your vote, you can help make change,” Hargrove said, adding when asked about her tenacity, “Yeah, I want to get things done and I can be a part of that change, so that’s why I voted.”

CBS 2 NY featured Pace's Black Student Union in "Pace University Holds Birthday Memorial For DJ Henry, Black College Football Player Fatally Shot By Police In 2010"

CBS 2 NY featured Pace's Black Student Union in "Pace University Holds Birthday Memorial For DJ Henry, Black College Football Player Fatally Shot By Police In 2010"

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Pace University held a memorial Thursday honoring Danroy Henry Jr., a student and football player who was killed by police 10 years ago.

The school’s Black Student Union retired Henry’s number 12 jersey as part of its first social justice rally.

DJ Henry was shot and killed in 2010 while out with friends in Westchester County.

He was sitting in his car when he was shot by a white officer who had responded to a disturbance at a nearby bar.

Passengers in the car say the officer ran out in front of them. The officer said he opened fire because he was in fear for his life.

The case went before a grand jury, but the officer was never charged.

A video message from DJ’s parents was played at the ceremony.

“He loved playing football at Pace and he loved being a part of a team, and so we feel like you guys are part of that team now as we work together to create true change in our world,” Angella Henry, DJ’s mother, said.

DJ Henry’s birthday was Thursday. He would have turned 31.

CBS New York featured Criminal Justice Professor Darrin Porcher in "Police Investigate Shootings In Brooklyn, Manhattan As Weekend Gun Violence Continues Into Workweek"

CBS New York featured Criminal Justice Professor Darrin Porcher in "Police Investigate Shootings In Brooklyn, Manhattan As Weekend Gun Violence Continues Into Workweek"

Darrin Porcher, professor of criminal justice at Pace University and a former NYPD lieutenant, said he blames defunding the police and failed leadership from the deBlasio Administration.

“The city is under siege. We’ve had multiple shootings this weekend alone. We’ve far eclipsed the number of shootings for the last 2 years in this year, 2020, alone,” said Porcher. “We need to have that manpower in place, and what it’s going to require is a greater amount of overtime.”

CBS New York featured criminal justice professor Dr. Darrin Porcher in "Mayor Says Wrong Time And Place For NYPD To Arrest Protester In Unmarked Van"

CBS New York featured criminal justice professor Dr. Darrin Porcher in "Mayor Says Wrong Time And Place For NYPD To Arrest Protester In Unmarked Van"

Dr. Darrin Porcher, a criminal justice professor at Pace University and former NYPD lieutenant, agrees.

“If I was still an active lieutenant in the NYPD, I would be 100% behind what took place,” Porcher told CBS2’s Jessica Layton.

Serving in the NYPD for 20 years, he calls this a sound tactic, even if it doesn’t look great given the times.

“The optics of arrest are always ugly,” he said. “Let’s say the officers elected not to take this individual into custody … That same individual goes out and continues to deface more security cameras … and then we have someone robbed or killed in that same area, and now people would bang on the desk and say, why don’t we have cameras? You know who this was that committed this act.”
