VIDEO: Army Vet Rams Cruisers In Vegas
A Clark County, Nev., grand jury decided not to indict a Las Vegas Metropolitan Police officer in the late-2011 shooting of a disabled veteran who rammed cruisers at an apartment building.
Officer Jesus Arevalo shot and killed veteran Stanley Gibson on Dec. 12, 2011. Witness video shows officers firing into Gibson's white sedan after it spins its wheels. Gibson was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.
The grand jury could still issue a report clearing the officer or do nothing. The District Attorney, reports the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

The grand jury could still issue a report clearing the officer or do nothing....... What is that comment suppose to mean. If the officer is not being indicted, then should he not be also cleared by the GJ.
Again, why is it taking over a year for an officer to get cleared. Too many jurisdictions drag out a shooting investigation. If it's a questionable shoot, ok, but many are justified right from the begining. The stress and strain on an officer who is waiting for closure in a good shoot is uncalled for.
