The case of the officer in Ferguson who has been accused of shooting the teenager is about to come to a close.
Residents in the area are on both sides of the fence in regards to the decision that will be given by the judge. Some in the town are bracing for an uprising as a result of the decision if it goes the wrong way. There has been some evidence released about the case after the autopsy results were revealed, but there are still questions as to what really happened. Some people will say that the officer is at fault, and there are some who will claim the teenager was the one running from the officer.
Regardless as to what really happened, the officer probably shouldn’t have shot the teen unless he was trying to get into a physical altercation with the officer. Even then, the officer shouldn’t have fired a shot that was anywhere close to kill the teen. It should have been something to wound the teen.
Big thanks to Bruce Levenson for sending me the details of this story. It’s something we should all keep in mind instead of forgetting about the events at Ferguson.
