#BLM: D.C. police officer who shot & killed Terrence Sterling will not face charges

The U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Columbia has decided to not to file charges against an officer in the case of Terrence Sterling, an unarmed-African American man who was fatally shot by D.C. police back in September.
The decision comes nearly 10 months after the 31-year-old was shot in the neck and side by Officer Brian Trainer in the early morning hours of Sept. 11.
Federal officials said a comprehensive review of the incident that included witness accounts, photos, cellphone video, physical evidence, recorded radio communications, Department of Transportation video, Closed Circuit Television video, body-camera footage and Sterling's autopsy report found "there is insufficient evidence to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the officer violated Mr. Sterling’s civil rights by willfully using more force than was reasonably necessary, had the necessary criminal intent when he shot Mr. Sterling, or was not acting in self-defense."
