Mississippi Cop Not Charged For Fatally Strangling Jonathan Sanders

Last July we reported a Mississippi cop strangled unarmed Jonathan Sanders for 20 minutes until he died, allegedly yelling “I’m gonna get that n****r” before the tragic murder.

According to The Clarion Ledger the police officer will not be indicted of the murder:

A Clarke County grand jury decided not to indict a police officer involved in a fatal altercation with a Stonewall man.

District Attorney Bilbo Mitchel said the jury heard from all the witnesses to the struggle between officer Kevin Herrington and 39-year-old Jonathan Sanders that led to Sanders’ death as well as from the man’s mother and were allowed to question them..

A grand jury usually only hears from an investigator or a prosecutor.

“I think that showed great transparency with the community,” said Stonewall Police Chief Mike Street. “They called in every witness, and the grand jury was allowed to question them. They learned firsthand what their roles were and what they saw, and they got to see all the evidence.”

The grand jury also was allowed to question the medical examiner, Street said.


Do Black lives really matter when the justice system doesn’t give a damn about us??
