    I think they are undercharged, too, but maybe this will help get convictions.

    Ryan McClarty,(man in left photo) is charged with third-degree assault, a misdemeanor. Authorities say McClarty punched Zachary Bearheels 13 times.
    Trial begins Jan 14.

    Scotty Payne, (man in right photo) is charged with second-degree assault and a weapons use charge. Both are felonies. Authorities say Payne shocked Zachary Bearheels a dozen times with a taser. His trial begins Nov. 26.

    The article this is linked to doesn't really contain any new developments. I just wanted to make a post with photos of the former officers and who is charged with what in the killing, along with trial dates. My version of Cliff notes, I guess you could say.

    Cruiser camera video showing final minutes of Zachary BearHeels' life brings juror to tears

    They dragged this man by his ponytail.

    I still have no understanding as to why this officer is charged with 2nd degree assault instead of murder.

    Mayor offers apology after jury clears officer in Lakota man's death

    Mayor offers apology after jury clears officer in Lakota man's death

    OMAHA, Nebraska – Mayor Jean Stothert apologized Tuesday to a relative of a mentally ill Rosebud Lakota man who died last year after being shocked 12 times and struck 13 times by two police officers here.

    At a meeting of a mayoral Native advisory committee in city hall, Stothert said she was disappointed in how Omaha police treated Zachary Bear Heels on the morning of June 5, 2017, and about an Omaha jury’s decision on December 10 to acquit one of the officers accused of assaulting the mentally ill man.

    “I would say I’m sorry this happened,” Stothert said.

    Following his acquittal, Payne told the media that he plans to seek to get his job back through an arbitrator. If the arbitrator agrees with him, Police Chief Schmaderer would be forced to rehire Payne.

    Schmaderer said he doesn’t plan to rehire Payne unless he’s forced to do so.

    “I’m still maintaining my position that they shouldn’t be Omaha police officers,” he said.
