From the start, Fenyanga Muhammad maintained his innocence. Shot four times by police in what was described as a drug bust gone wrong in 2007, Muhammad said he hadn’t swallowed drugs as police claimed. As for his resistance as police tried to arrest him, he claimed that was because the police officers grabbing him behind caused him to choke on a Popsicle stick that had been in his mouth and which was visible in crime scene photos. He was shot three times across his back, and once in the hand. Muhammad was totally innocent the police officers LIED!
