Witness claims man posed no threat to officer

Author:

A prosecution witness testified Tuesday that a park ranger shot a Ramapough Indian in Mahwah three years ago while the victim had both hands in the air and posed no threat to the officer. Melissa Dennison told jurors in Superior Court in Hackensack that she saw state parks police officer Chad Walder holding his gun with both hands and pointing it at tribe member Emil Mann.
