Probable cause doesn't mean a presumption of guilt until police can be convinced of one's innocence. The children were still handcuffed when their parents arrived on the scene.
The U.S. Department of Justice released a report Monday detailing problems with the Minneapolis, Minnesota police department's response to protests that followed the 2015 shooting death of Jamar Clark.
Just months after escaping federal charges in the shooting death of Jamar Clark, an unarmed Black man, Minneapolis police have announced that the officers will not be disciplined, reports NBC News.
Clark, 24, was shot by Minneapolis police after getting into a domestic dispute with his girlfriend on Nov. 15. He was unarmed when he was approached by Ringgenberg and Schwarze. The officers claimed Clark tried to take his own life by grabbing Ringgenberg's gun. The incident lasted just over a minute before Clark was fatally shot.
An encampment created by Minneapolis protesters after the shooting of Jamar Clark was torn down Thursday by police, resulting in a protest at City Hall.
One of the two Minneapolis police officers involved in the shooting death of Jamar Clark was sued just 10 days prior to the incident for excessive force in a separate case.
"A group of White supremacists showed up at the protest, as they have done most nights," Miski Noor, a media contact for Black Lives Matter told the Star Tribune.
Throughout the night, Minneapolis police claimed, via Twitter, that chemical irritant was dispersed by protesters as they attempted to take down the tarp that separated police from demonstrators. Those on the ground, however, denied the claim, posting photographs and videos of police unleashing the irritant on the crowds.
Jamar Clark was taken off life support on Monday evening with his parents Irma Jean and James Hill by his bedside. The 24-year-old was shot in the head when two officers attempted to restrain him during a domestic incident early Sunday in North Minneapolis.
