Group Responds to Federal Decision in Jamar Clark Case

June 04, 2016 07:47 AM

The Twin Cities Coalition for Justice 4 Jamar rallied Friday at the Hennepin County Government Center in downtown Minneapolis.
 
The group rallied in response to the federal government's decision not to charge two Minneapolis police officers in Jamar Clark's shooting death.

U.S. Attorney for Minnesota Andrew Luger and FBI Special Agent in Charge Richard Thornton released the results of a seven-month civil rights investigation at the Minneapolis FBI headquarters Wednesday.

They said there was insufficient evidence to pursue charges. Much of the evidence and reasoning was similar to what Hennepin County prosecutors concluded after they and the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension investigated.

Clark's father, James Clark, spoke at the event.

Protesters have been rallying since Clark was killed in November.

The group will march at noon Saturday.
