#JusticeForJamarClark: Feds Will Not Bring Charges Against Officers Involved in Minneapolis Shooting


CBS Minnesota reports that federal investigators will not bring civil rights charges against officers Mark Ringgenberg and Dustin Schwarze.

In a news conference today, United States Attorney Andrew Luger announced that the officers involved would not be charged for possibly violating Clark’s civil rights.

This revelation comes months after Hannepin County Attorney Mike Freeman decided not to bring criminal charges against Schwarze and Ringgenberg.

The shooting occurred in November of 2015 when officers were answering a domestic dispute call. Atlanta Black Star reported that Clark was shot in the head while handcuffed. The 24-year-old died, and a wave of protests followed well into the new year.

Clark reportedly struggled with officers and even tried to take  Ringgenberg’s gun. The Hannepin County Attorney made these statements after an extensive review of the evidence in a news conference in March.

The Minnesota CBS affiliate reports that Clark’s family is seeking other legal avenues to get justice.
