Channel 2 investigation found that:
- Not a single fatal police shooting since 2010 has gone to trial.
- Two-thirds of police shooting cases never went to a grand jury because district attorneys used their discretion not to bring charges.
- Of 48 cases that went to a grand jury, only nine involved the presentation of a criminal indictment. In the rest, the prosecutor simply asked the grand jury to determine if the shooting was justified or unjustified.
To charge an officer in a fatal shooting, it takes something so egregious, so over the top that it cannot be explained in any rational way,” said Philip M. Stinson, a criminologist at Bowling Green who studies arrests of police. “It also has to be a case that prosecutors are willing to hang their reputation on.”
when they are convicted or plead guilty, they’ve tended to get little time behind bars, on average four years
