Ohio Grand Jury Clears Officers in Wal-Mart Shootings, DOJ to Investigate

September 24, 2014  | 

A special grand jury has cleared police officers in the fatal shooting of a 22-year-old Fairfield man on Aug. 5 at a Beavercreek, Ohio, Wal-Mart, prosecutors said Wednesday.

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine announced that he is turning the investigative files over to the U.S. Department of Justice for a civil rights review. The federal government has been monitoring the case and agreed to a review, Cincinnati.com reports.

"The Civil Rights Division, the United States Attorney's Office, and the FBI will conduct a thorough and independent review of the evidence and take appropriate action if the evidence indicates a prosecutable violation of federal criminal civil rights statutes," said Jennifer Thornton, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney's Office.

Love it. No Officer is going to take the chance of death to ask a perp, Do you have a real gun or fake one? I learned along time ago that 98% of citizens are "Adam Henrys."
Once worked in a Housing Public Safety Dept. Our uniforms & badges were different than the P.D., but nothing on our duty belt or mission was. An Officer once said, We're only Housing Security Officers. I replied, I'm sure the drug dealers, gang members, prostitutes, & anyone else are going to take the time to run up & look at your badge. When contacting, arresting, chasing and/or subduing them game of life is on.

It's unfortunate these officers were put into this position. Now, the jackass that swatted this man needs to be prosecuted. Two people died because of him.

This article doesn't mention the 30 something mother who collapsed, and died, from a heart attack.
