    On an evening in June 2013, New Jersey Det. Joseph Walker was driving his minivan along Route 3 near Interstate 97 with his wife and three young children when he accidentally drifted into Joseph Harvey Jr.'s lane of traffic. Harvey, who was with a passenger, Adam Pidel, responded by yelling racial slurs at Detective Walker and his family, who are African-American, and issuing a death threat. Harvey eventually forced the Walkers from the road and sped off only to pull over 50 yards ahead. Harvey and Mr. Pidel jumped from the car and quickly moved on the Walker family, clearly looking to fight. Harvey was carrying a tactical flip knife.
