Marc Jean, African-American Salesman For Garden City Jeep Chrysler Dealer Threatened At Gunpoint Files Federal Civil RIghts Lawsuit

Hempstead N.Y. — Following the harrowing experience of being threatened by his Sales Manager at gun point, Friday, July 28th, in the Garden City Jeep Chrysler Dealer located at 283 N. Franklin Street in Hempstead, where he worked, Mr. Marc Jean filed a complaint with the New York State Division of Human Rights. They found that probable cause existed that Mr. Jean was the victim of discrimination.


The Nassau County Grand Jury indicted the gun wielding boss, 22-year-old Mike Volonakis, charging him with a Felony. The law office of  Frederick K. Brewington, Esq, representing Mr. Jean filed his Federal Civil Right’s Law Suit in the Federal District Court, Eastern District of New York and it is now pending. See copy of that Complaint filed with the Court below.

BW called the Hempstead Police Department, the supervising officer confirmed the coworker, named Ken Skeen, had brought in the guns and was allegedly planning to go to the gun range. He’s been charged with weapons possessions.

Hempstead PD also confirmed Volonakis who allegedly drew the unloaded weapon, aimed it at Marc’s head, and insultingly asked him, “does this look familiar,” has also been charged only with weapons possession.

Skeen and Volonakis were given desk appearance tickets. The dealership declined to comment. It is unclear if Jean will continue working as a salesman. Stay tuned to Black Westchester for more on this developing story.

BOYCOTT FOR BLACK LIVES T-SHIRT  BUY HERE

Colin Kaepernick has committed no crime other than spoke truth to power about the injustices to black people in the United States. For this, he should not be punished by blackballing him from the game of football. If people want change, we must Boycott! It’s up to us to protest but not just physically; with our money. If black lives don't matter to them, then our black dollars shouldn't either.
