Following the grand jury’s decision not to indict white police officer Darren Wilson in the fatal shooting of black teenager Michael Brown, a shocking mistake has been identified that the prosecutors made.
Reportedly prosecutors may have misled the Ferguson grand jury about Missouri law before Darren Wilson’s testimony was reviewed.
Apparently prosecutors gave grand jurors a document leading them to believe that Darren Wilson would definitely be justified in shooting Michael Brown if he fled the custody of Wilson.
A document of a Statute was reportedly given to the grand jury which was apparently outdated.
The statute had actually been deemed unconstitutional since 1985 by the U.S. Supreme court.
Actually, an officer must have some type of recognizable dangerous threat by the fleeing suspect posed before they can justify shooting the fleeing suspect.
Though the prosecutors made the alleged mistake of giving the grand jury the outdated Missouri statute it was reportedly re-tracked before the jury was to come to a decision of whether to indict or not indict Darren Wilson.
