I posted this story when it first happened last year in September. Today, I regretfully post the outcome.
Jonathan was unarmed and running to police for help after a car accident he barely escaped from. He was greeted with 10 gun shots from Officer Randall Kerrick. Reports say he was still being shot after having fallen to his knees.
Yesterday, a grand jury decided NOT to indict the officer who murdered Jonathan.
In a news conference after the jury’s decision, Randall Kerrick’s attorney said, “The citizens of Mecklenburg County should be proud of the grand jury & proud of the job Officer Kerrick did that night”.
Jonathan was a 24 year old former student and football player at Florida A&M and recently engaged at the time of his death.
This is the world we live in. #NeverForget
