Cops have womens bikinis sale barged into James Jordan Sr.’s family home looking for him more than a dozen times since he died in 2006 — prompting his exasperated relatives to finally post his death certificate on the front door.
“I tell suit underwear them over and over, ‘James isn’t here! He’s dead! It’s that simple. What’s so difficult to understand about that?’ ” the Brooklyn security guard’s widow, Karen, told The Post on Monday.
James Jordan Sr., who died from diabetes at age 46, was last arrested in 1996 — for turnstile-jumping, said Karen Jordan, who has filed a lawsuit against the city in Brooklyn federal court.nkhytayr367485
But cops still routinely ransack the family’s Bushwick home on Sumner Avenue, demanding to see him — coming four times this year alone, Jordan said.
James Jordan Sr.The widow finally taped his death certificate to the door.
“I wanted it to be the first thing they saw before they came into my home and flipped it upside down,” Jordan said. “I can’t hide anyone in my apartment. It’s not big enough for that. But they keep coming and insisting that he’s in my house.”
Jordan said she’s mystified by the NYPD’s apparent obsession with her late spouse because he had such a minuscule criminal history. Law-enforcement sources said Jordan Sr. had three sealed arrests in 1996.
“He was a hardworking man, and he took care of eight kids,” the widow said. “It isn’t right for them to be coming after him like this. There’s no reason for it.”
Jordan said the NYPD’s visits leave their home a wreck.
“They tell me to be quiet or they’ll lock me up,” she said. “So they go through my entire house, turning out drawers, looking in closets, harassing my children and asking them terrible questions.
“I’m at my wit’s end,” Jordan said, adding that she also keeps the death certificate at the ready right next to the door on a dresser.
Jordan’s son, James Jr., 31, said officers rushed into the apartment in July and arrested him when he told them his name.
Death certificate of James Jordan Sr.“I told them that my father was gone,” he said. “They just didn’t believe me. When they came in, they came in like a riot team. It was like a raid. Six officers rushed into the apartment and woke me up.”
Jordan Jr. and a pal were hit with weapons-possession charges that were later dropped, family lawyer Ugo Uzoh says in the suit. He has no other criminal history.
“My dad’s spirit is here. But you can’t arrest his spirit,” Jordan Jr. said. “I just want my dad to rest in peace. Even when you’re dead, you still get harassed.”
The city’s Law Department declined to comment.
