To the surprise of exactly no one, Ohio will not charge the two officers who killed a black man in a WalMart who was holding an unloaded pellet gun (and not pointing it at anyone). Somehow, I believe the fedora-wearing, Open Carry chuckleheads would not be shot in the same situation.
Also, and this is key: No one is talking about charging the "former Marine" (that turned out to be not true) who called the police from WalMart saying the man was pointing his gun at people (which was not true).
This is important for this reason. This is the salient part from AP's story about the county not charging the officers:
"Prosecutor Stacey DeGraffenreid, who assisted Piepmeier, said Crawford was shot twice, once in the elbow and one in the side slightly from the front to the back. DeGraffenreid says no other shots were fired after Crawford went down, dropping the rifle.
“This was a real tragedy,” DeGraffenreid said in a telephone interview. But she said that based on what the officers had been told when they entered the Wal-Mart, they were doing what they were trained to do. "
BASED ON WHAT THE OFFICERS HAD BEEN TOLD WHEN THEY ENTERED THE WAL-MART.
