Cops Cleared Of Crimes In Shooting Death Of San Jose Woman
24-year-old Jennifer Vazquez was killed on Christmas day last year when San Jose police mistook her for a murder suspect that they had been looking for.
This past Friday, Santa Clara D.A.’s office cleared all the officers involved in the shooting of all wrongdoing reports NBC Bay Area.
Deputy District Attorney David Boyd, says that the cops had no reason to believe they had killed the wrong person…until the wrong person was killed.
‘Under the facts…the use of deadly force…was a lawful response to an apparent armed fleeing felon who reasonably appeared to pose a great threat to public safety,’ Boyd wrote.
Below is the body camera footage. The death of Jennifer Vazquez is not shown, but the video is still graphic in nature.
Rest in peace to Jennifer Vazquez, rest in Hell to those cops and the people who decided that it was ok for her to die.
