Birth: Apr. 3, 1962
Death: Jul. 23, 2003

City Councilman, and founder of the non profit organization "LOVE YOURSELF" Stop the Violence. Davis was an ex-police officer who in 1983 was falsely arrested and assaulted by two police officers who accused him of stealing a car which was his mothers car. No charges were ever filed against but Davis turned the experience around and joined the NYPD police force in 1991. Othniel Askew was the murderer who was escorted past the city hall metal detectors by the councilman. Askew was a political unknown who had planned to run against Davis in the upcoming Council race. Media outlets covered the story extensively.
