Convict’s Mug Shot Used on N.J. Anti-Carjacking Billboards

Two New Jersey lawmakers are outraged over the use of Jahlil Thomas’ mug shot for anti-carjacking billboards. Thomas, 23, an African-American, is serving 22 years for carjacking and featured in the campaign that reads, “Seconds to carjack. Years of hard time." Assemblywoman Grace Spencer says, “Certainly there is a better way to get this important message across without potentially vilifying an entire segment of the population."
