In the aftermath of the tragic killing of 1-year-old Antiq Hennis of Brooklyn, N.Y., last weekend, a wave of support has come from city officials and activists in their pursuit of justice. A moment of silence was observed at the West Indian Day Parade, and the New York City Police Department has offered a $12,000 reward for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of the baby's killer.
