CNN: Grand Jury Won’t Indict Officers In Dallas Shooting


Secular Talk

Two Dallas officers who shot a schizophrenic, bipolar man holding a screwdriver within 20 seconds of arriving at his family’s doorstep last June will not be indicted, according to CNN and ThinkProgress.

Officers John Rogers and Andrew Hutchins shot Jason Harrison, 38, who suffered from bipolar disorder and schizophrenia, after they ordered him to drop the screwdriver, states Al-Jazeera.

“The family is obviously severely disappointed,” said attorney Geoff Henley.  Henley is representing Harrison’s family in a federal civil-rights lawsuit that was filed last October, states Al-Jazeera.  Henley also said,  “…(T)his isn’t going to affect our case. We’ll continue to move forward.”
