Fault Lines Links – Video Contradicts Police Account Of 2013 Shooting Of Shaun Mouzon
Jan. 18, 2016 (Mimesis Law) — Hi folks, here’s what you need to this morning:
- Video of the 2013 fatal shooting of unarmed Shaun Mouzon reportedly contradicts Baltimore PD’s account of events. The officers claim that Mouzon failed to follow verbal commands and tried to run them over with his vehicle leading them to shoot. The video – which hasn’t yet been made public – appears to show officers exiting their unmarked police vehicle and almost immediately shooting into Mouzon’s stationary car.
- According to reports, the jury in the trial of Baltimore Officer William Porter were one vote away from acquittal. The judge declared a mistrial in the case because the jury was deadlocked. Porter is the first officer to go on trial on charges relating to the death of Freddie Gray last April.
- Former Suffolk County, NY, Officer Scott Greene was convicted of larceny and official misconduct for stealing from a number of Latino drivers during traffic stops between 2010 and 2014. He was acquitted on other charges including grand larceny as a hate crime.
