Fresh protests over US police acquittal

Fresh protests over US police acquittal

Stockley, a white man, was charged with first-degree murder for a 2011 fatal shooting of Anthony Lamar Smith, a black motorist.

Cops were preparing for another wave of protests Saturday. However, by nightfall, the protests turned violent, with rocks thrown in the direction of law enforcement. Some protesters hurled objects at officers and vandalized property.

"I would say that all in all today's protests were very peaceful and the police exercised great restraint", stated O'Toole, adding, "That is a good outcome for a very tense day". "However, this evening we've had some incidents".

Numerous studies have revealed the disproportionate times that Black people are targeted and killed by police in the United States compared to whites.

The intensely awaited decision comes days after local activists had promised disruptive protests in the event of an acquittal, and just over three years after protests in Ferguson, Mo. over the shooting of Michael Brown captured national media attention.

Trump arrives in Florida to see damage caused by Irma
Over 100 people were evacuated from the Hollywood Hills facility on Wednesday after days without air conditioning. Six people at a Florida nursing home that was left without power for days after Hurricane Irma have died.

Police blocked protestors from getting on a major highway, so they marched to police headquarters. A gun in the auto had the officer's DNA on it, but not Smith's. Stockley fired at least one shot at Smith as he led them on a high-speed pursuit.

"It is apparent from the dash cam audio and video that the pursuit was stressful", ruled Wilson.

Smith's vehicle eventually slowed, and the officers chose to crash into his vehicle. After crashing into the vehicle, he then shot at Smith five times, according to the documents. Dashcam footage captured Stockley saying "going to kill this [expletive], don't you know it" before Stockley and his partner rammed Smith's van and Stockley got out and shot five rounds into the auto, killing Smith. The handgun only had Stockley's DNA on it.

Circuit Judge Timothy Wilson issued his ruling Friday against 36-year-old Jason Stockley.

"This court, as the trier of fact, is simply not firmly convinced of defendant's guilt".
