Albuquerque Police Officers are facing charges After SHOOTING a homeless man in 2014.
The 38 year-old JAMES BOYD was shot in the hills. JAMES BOYD spent the night in a shelter previously, but after the shelter being full due to winter JAMES BOYD had no choice but to head for the hills. A place he thought would be safe although is illegal to camp out.
A date of which has not yet been set, KEITH SANDY and DOMINIQUE PEREZ the two OFFICERS, were ordered to appear at a hearing to face charges for this fatal shooting. A criminal investigation had taken place after evidence obtained from a camera worn by dozens of officers showed JAMES BOYD with two small camping knives in his hand. The cameras also captured the Albuquerque, NM Police Officers converging on a small nest of rocks on the hillside.
At one point, after talking with the Albuquerque Police Officers for several hours and claiming to be “the Department of Defense,” JAMES BOYD turned his back and the OFFICERS began FIRING.
KEITH and PEREZ acted with “deliberate intention” in the killing of JAMES BOYD says the prosecutors on Monday. A video taken by one of the OFFICERS helmet on the March 16 shooting was posted on YOUTUBE by the Albuquerque Police Department helped prompt a series of large PROTESTS here against the police says THE NEW YORK TIMES.
The VIDEO shows one Albuquerque, NM Police Officers unleashing his K-9 German shepherd against JAMES BOYD. Other OFFICERS were caught on camera throwing GRENADES. Cameras on the helmets showed JAMES BOYD wheezing for breath after the ATTACK. JAMES BOYD died later at a local hospital.
Since 2010 other SHOOTINGS have taken place by the Albuquerque Police Officers says CNN. Local activists have demonstrated for months PROTESTING not only JAMES BOYDS shooting but others as well.
GOD BLESS ALL THE FAMILIES WHO ARE VICTIMS OF THESE SHOOTINGS.
