Charges Dropped For Cop Who Fatally Shot Sleeping 7-Year-Old Girl

1 post in this topic

Looking into some info about another thread I came across this unbelievable story... Posting for awareness.

"In all of the melee resulting from the shooting of Michael Brown by Officer Darren Wilson, the media has overlooked a number of other very important shootings of unarmed civilians by police officers. One of the most egregious offenses is that of Officer Joseph Weekley’s fatal shooting of 7-year-old Aiyana Stanley-Jones.

Officer Weekley recently saw manslaughter charge dropped against him, for shooting the 7-year-old while she slept.

 

The Detroit police officer had been on trial for involuntary manslaughter for shooting and killing the young girl during a 2010 police raid.

But early in October, Wayne County Circuit Court Judge Cynthia Gray Hathaway granted a motion which Weekley’s attorney had filed, arguing for the dismissal of the felony charge he faced in the young girl’s death.

The trial was brought to an end while the Michigan Court of Appeals reviewed an emergency appeal of the ruling."

5 years later it seems people have lost their passion for justice. How easily we forget.
