The dead guy "ignored officers' orders to show his hands." That's what I call being executed for disobedience. What do you call it?County prosecutors have found that the fatal shooting of an unarmed barber by Oakland police was justified because the two officers thought the man was reaching for a gun.
The Oakland Tribune reported Tuesday that the Alameda County District Attorney's Office found that 37-year-old Derrick Jones ignored officers' orders to show his hands.
Assistant District Attorney Richard Klemmer wrote in a report that officers Eriberto Perez-Angeles and Omar Daza-Quiroz reasonably believed they were about to be shot.
The findings mean the officers will not face criminal charges in the shooting.
