An Atlanta area grand jury on Thursday indicted a DeKalb County police officer who fatally shot an unarmed naked man on charges including felony murder, aggravated assault and violation of oath of office.

The decision came after DeKalb County prosecutors presented their case against, who fatally shot Anthony Hill on March 9 while responding to a call of a man behaving erratically outside a suburban Atlanta apartment complex.

Hill's family in November filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the DeKalb County Police Department, Olsen, the county and its board of commissioners, the Associated Press reports.

Nothing appears in the description above that allows for analysis or relevant comment. It lends itself to comments such as : Ain't it awful?, or That is Terrible, or What is the world coming to? or My sympathy to the deceased and his family as well as to the officer and his family. If the Hill family can get De Kalb county officials to use "Baltimore Logic" then the Hill family gets millions.

I don't know about 'Baltimore Logic"...but this shows that video evidence can even overcome the laws in Georgia!!
First, the LEO is entitled to a fair trial; with a jury of citizens. This should happen in all unarmed LEO shooting cases...but seldom does because the DA interferes with the process. However in this case the person shot was unarmed, naked and had not struck the officer....so it made it almost impossible for the DA and the LEO to overcome the bias in Georgia.
To recap in Georgia, during the Grand Jury process the LEO is allowed to testify as the last witness & that testimony cannot be cross examined by the DA.
How can that possibly be a fair process?
Again, this LEO is entitled to a fair trial in front of a citizen jury...but can any LEO on this board honestly say the Grand Jury process in Georgia is fair and impartial??!!
the only reason for an indictment: Video evidence & the guy was naked....without that we never get a trail.

Who would have the stats on naked suspects killing /assaulting LE? Charles Miller you there?

Video evidence cannot accurately document the horrifying stench of his nads. Assaulted by B.O.

Should have deployed the NAD squad.
