Governor Murphy Directs U.S. and New Jersey Flags to Fly at Half-Staff in Honor of the Victims of the Jersey City Hate Crime


TRENTON – Governor Phil Murphy today ordered that the U.S. and New Jersey flags be flown at half-staff at all state buildings and facilities from Friday, December 13, 2019, through Friday, December 20, 2019, in recognition of the victims of this week’s hate crime in Jersey City: Detective Joseph Seals, Moshe Deutsch, Mindy Ferencz, and Douglas Miguel Rodriguez.

"Today, we mourn the innocent victims of the shooting in Jersey City. We offer our condolences to their families, especially at this time of year, when families should be coming together in celebration, not coming together in grief," said Governor Murphy. "We will keep the victims of this vicious hate crime in our thoughts and prayers as we work to ensure that a tragedy like this never happens again."
