Michigan authorities said Wednesday that they have cleared six Saginaw police officers in the fatal shooting of a homeless, mentally ill man in a parking lot.Usually they wait six months or a year to make an outrageous decision like this one. They should be careful, this is how the Rodney King problem started, exonerating obviously guilty cops.
Saginaw County Prosecutor Michael D. Thomas joined state officials at a Saginaw news conference to announce the findings.
Milton Hall, 49, was shot multiple times July 1. Saginaw police said he was wielding a knife and made aggressive movements toward officers.
Thomas said in a statement that an extensive investigation "did not yield enough evidence supporting the filing of criminal charges against the officers involved."
"It is the decision of the prosecutor's office that we do not believe that the arresting officers are chargeable for their actions," Thomas said.
