5月10日,星期四,联邦陪审团裁定两名LAPD军官应对其在查理枪杀事件中的枪击身亡负责“Africa”Keunang是一名没有武装,患有精神疾病的无家可归的人,他于2015年3月在滑行中的帐篷前被杀死。高铁律师Josh Piovia-Scott,Dan Stormer和Shaleen Shanbhag代表Keunang先生的家人称他们为LAPD军官他们与基南先生的无理对峙升级,导致他去世。

经过几天的审议,由八名成员组成的陪审团一致决定,Tased并向Keunang先生开枪的弗朗西斯科·马丁内斯军官使用了过多的武力,并发现现场的第一名军士Chand Syed中士违反了他的干预职责。在审判的损害赔偿阶段开始之前,双方达成了195万美元的和解协议。解决方案将交给Keunang先生’的父母Heleine Tchayou和Isaac Keunang,以及他的妹妹Line Marquise Foming。

审判的第一阶段持续了五天,陪审团在录像中获得了马丁内兹军官和塞德军士的录像证据’的随身相机,一个旁观者’的手机和监控摄像头。录像显示,LAPD军官如何使用威胁和武力违反他们的降级培训,不必要地升级了与Keunang先生的会面。为响应他一再要求军官听他讲话的要求,Keunang先生受到威胁,被殴打,被猛击多次,被铲打并固定在地上,再次被他殴打,最终开枪五次。整个相遇持续了大约六分钟,整个相遇发生在星期日早晨的白天。高铁律师Joshua Piovia-Scott说:“军官基本上做了他们训练中说不应该做的每件事。是军官’导致这种情况升级并使其失控的螺旋式动作。”

洛杉矶警察局’律师辩称,军官开枪射击基努先生是合理的,因为他们听到了沃拉吉斯军官–不再受LAPD雇用的新秀军官–大喊基南先生有枪。但是LAPD’自己对Volasgis的测试’枪和枪套找不到Keunang先生’s DNA或任一项目上的指纹。

洛杉矶警察委员会在2016年发现枪击事件是合理的。洛杉矶地区检察官拒绝对这些官员提起刑事诉讼,称该官员“为自卫和为他人辩护而合法行事。”高铁律师丹·斯托默(Dan Stormer)说,判决结果表明,执法部门必须对武力使用进行审查“公民,而不是官僚,” and that “我们的陪审团制度不愿接受警察基于恐惧的辩护。”

“陪审团的裁决发出了一个强有力的信息,即这种行为,这种过分的武力,在不使用致命武力的情况下解决问题的失败,在洛杉矶是不容忍的,” said Piovia-Scott.
