ariston waiters federal investigationA Georgia state senator says that he will request a federal investigation into the shooting death of 19-year-old Ariston Waiters by Union City police officer Luther Lewis, reports.

Sen. Vincent Fort D-Atlanta said on Thursday that he would send a letter making the request.

Lewis shot Waiters in December while he reportedly tried to handcuff the teen. Lewis also says that Waiters refused commands that he take his hands out of his pockets. A struggle ensued when Lewis tried to take Waiters into custody and that is where the story splits in two directions. Lewis says that Waiters tried to take his gun, while Waiters’ family says that was not the case.

An autopsy report reads that Waiters was shot twice in the back. The Fulton County District Attorney’s Office presented the case to a grand jury. But they declined to indict Lewis.

Waiters’ mother, Freda Waiters, says that Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard mislead her on the facts of her son’s case. Howard, according to the mother, initially said that her son did nothing wrong. Howard changed his position during the grand jury presentation, Freda says.

Freda felt that when she testified during the grand jury hearing it was her dead son, not the officer, who was on trial.

“They asked me how did I feel when my son got the tattoo across his face?” she said. “My son stole my sister’s car when she went on her vacation. They asked about that. Anything (they) could do to demean my son and the family, it was said.”
