« on: March 30, 2016, 11:30:49 AM »
Well in my opinon.. Jamal Clark was a thug



No charges against police officers in Jamar Clark shooting death
Clark was not handcuffed and refused to take his hand off an officer's gun, so a second officer shot Clark in the head, County Attorney Mike Freeman spelled out, based on the investigation.

No charges will be filed against the two Minneapolis officers involved in the shooting death last fall of Jamar Clark, Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman announced Wednesday.
For more than 30 minutes in a downtown Minneapolis news conference and with Clark’s family and supporters present, Freeman laid out in meticulous detail the evidence that led to his decision.
Freeman said the investigation found that:
• Clark was not handcuffed, as some witnesses contended, when he struggled with two officers.
• Clark had his hand on officer Mark Ringgenberg’s handgun during the scuffle on the ground and ignored repeated orders to remove his hand from the weapon.
• During the altercation, Clark said on more than one occasion, “I am ready to die.”


People listen as Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman begins speaking about his decision in the Jamar Clark case.

Freeman brought with him to the highly anticipated announcement evidence from the investigation into Clark’s death on a North Side street as well as video that law enforcement collected from the scene that night.
According to Freeman, citing the evidence presented to him:
Officers told Clark to put his hands in his pockets and he wouldn’t. Officer Mark Ringgenberg put his gun back in the holster and grabbed Clark’s right wrist. Officer Dustin Schwarze grabbed Clark’s other arm and dropped the handcuffs while trying to cuff him. Ringgenberg then tried a takedown move and they both fell to the ground and Ringgenberg’s back was to Clark’s stomach. Ringgenberg felt his gun go from his hip to the small of his back. Ringgenberg reached back and felt Clark’s hand on his gun. He repeatedly told Schwarze: “He’s got my gun, he’s got my gun.’
Schwarze put his gun to edge of Clark’s mouth and said “Let go or I’m going to shoot you.”
Schwarze said Clark looked at him and said “I’m ready to die.”
Schwarze pulled the trigger once, but the slide caught. He pulled the trigger again and the gun went off, 61 seconds after the intitial encounter began.
Plans for two gatherings in response to Freeman’s decision have been announced. A rally organized by Justice4Jamar, is scheduled to start at 5 p.m. at Plymouth and James Avenues N., near where Clark was shot. The groups Black Lives Matter Minneapolis and Justice4Jamar announced on Facebook a gathering at 6 p.m. Wednesday in Elliot Park, just south of downtown Minneapolis.
Clark, 24, a black man, was shot in the head during the scuffle with the two white Minneapolis police officers on Nov. 15. The shooting led to international attention, widespread local protests, and an 18-day encampment outside the police department’s Fourth Precinct in north Minneapolis, near the site of the shooting.
Activists have not only been protesting Clark’s shooting but also the withholding of video that law enforcement has collected from the scene that night.
The police union has contended almost from the day of the shooting that Clark had his hand on one of the officers’ guns when he was shot. Activists have said that’s not true and that Clark was handcuffed at the time.
Police had been called on a report that Clark assaulted his girlfriend and blocked paramedics from trying to treat her on the street in the 1600 block of Plymouth Avenue N. Clark died the next day.
The officers, Mark Ringgenberg, 30, and Dustin Schwarze, 29, were placed on administrative leave but returned to police desk jobs in January. Both officers have more than seven years of policing experience, including the past 17 months with Minneapolis. Neither has had any disciplinary actions since they joined the Minneapolis force, according to the police union.
Schwarze, while a Richfield police officer, is accused in a still-pending lawsuit to have deployed a Taser on the passenger of a vehicle pulled over by officers in December 2011. He also is accused of threatening to beat the tased victim and a second passenger if they got out of the vehicle.
While Ringgenberg was a San Diego police officer, he was sued in federal court in 2012 for alleged rough treatment of a suspect resisting arrest. The suit was dismissed.

[/color]The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension investigated the Clark case and turned over its findings to Freeman in February. Earlier this month, Freeman reversed decades of precedent when he announced that he would not use a grand jury in police-involved shootings, including to determine whether charges should be levied against the officers in the Clark case.[/font][/size][/font]

Judging by Clark's past criminal history and his state at the point of contact with police, I'd say the police's action were necessary.

Clark is a freakin criminal and the cops have the right to shoot him for what he was trying to do.

Did that video of a cop getting killed turn you on?

Why did they have to bring a gun to a fist fight? Couldn't they have whacked him with a chair or something?

you're right, why did they even intervene in the first place? let Jamal beat the crap out of his girlfriend and let them NAACP handle it!

WCCO released an interview with the alleged victim today. She claims Jamal and her were never a couple and that he didn't beat her. And then everybody started scrabbling to call her, the alleged victim, a liar. It's a circus out there. Don't be a sheep.
