Family Insists Cop Cleared In Killing Of Unarmed Man Was Racially Profiling

avatar

A Montana cop who fatally shot an unarmed man earlier this year will likely not face charges.

A jury ruled on Wednesday that Billings police officer Grant Morrison was justified in the killing, The Associated Press reports. The family says their son was a victim of racial profiling, but the officer said the victim reached for his waist, and he thought he had a gun.

Morrison fatally shot another man in 2013, but that killing was also considered justified.

In a dash cam video appearing to show the incident, Morrison pulled over a car with four people inside and asked them to raise their hands.

Richard Ramirez, 38, was high on meth in the backseat, and appears to repeatedly disobey the order. He then reached down towards his waistband and Morrison fired three shots.

“I will shoot you again!” he yells. “Hands up!”

WATCH:

A different video shows Morrison minutes after the shooting. You can hear heavy breathing and one officer consoling him.

WATCH:

Ramirez family members told AP that they plan to sue Morrison and the police department.

Homosexual Agenda and the US Military

Dr. Sonny Hernandez

Homosexual Agenda and the US Military is a field manual for US service members and military chaplains. This Gospel-Centered, polemical book exposes the homosexual agenda that adversely affects Religious Liberty for Christians. There are several homosexual activists that will demand equality and tolerance. However, homosexual activists are not so equal or tolerant towards anyone that disagrees with their position on same sex marriage or transgenderism. They will claim to love all, but they really do not mean all—they mean agenda. This is because the homosexual agenda has a definition for inclusivity—their way or the highway.
