Grand Jury Clears Dallas Officer In Fatal OIS
October 16, 2013
A Dallas Police officer has been exonerated by a grand jury in the fatal shooting of an unarmed man who was choking the officer and had PCP in his system.
Officer Clark Staller will not face criminal charges, a Dallas County grand jury has ruled in the case. The officer had previously been cleared in an internal probe, reports the Dallas Morning News.
The officer had responded to a March 10 disturbance call at an East Oak Cliff apartment complex and scuffled with 25-year-old Clinton Allen. The officer used his TASER twice on Allen, who continued assaulting Staller as the two flipped over a walkway railing. Allen then choked the officer and lifted him off his feet. Stoller then shot and killed Allen.

Hopefully the media gets this right and say that Allen had pcp in his system. Good to hear Officer Staller.

It took the Grand Jury seven months to realize that two hits with a Taser didn't slow this pos down and Officer Staller would be killed if he didn't defend himself? Nice. What is happening to the great state of Texas? Are too many kalifornians moving in? Blues, Stay Safe.

"Are too many kalifornians moving in?" Yes, that is it. Most are congregated in Austin, but they are drifting sown into San Antonio.
