Statement on non-indictment of officers who killed Jamar Clark

“Every day in Minneapolis, we see black men arrested for less evidence than was presented today about the officers’ deadly actions. The evidence presented today, if it had not involved police officers, would have been enough to send the case to trial for a jury to decide. Freeman’s decision not to charge these officers is a political choice that shows that police officers are still above the law, and that their fear of young black men will continue to be an acceptable legal basis for killing them.”
