AWARENESS! Family Wants Murder Charges Against Officer Accused Of Killing Teen Boy, Leaving the Scene

You might not be hearing about this as much nationally because the Baltimore Officer was African American but injustice is wrong everywhere and needs to be eradicated.

Mother of Christopher Brown, slain young 17-year old at hands of Baltimore Policeman who fled the scene.
Yesterday on my way home, I met Chris Brown, mother of Christopher Brown and Melissa Bagley who were on their way to an interview regarding the death of Ms Brown’s son. Some information that I was given about the situation was inexcusable. The officer in question choked the youngster and left the scene! While returning he brought back his girlfriend who performed CPR on the youngster, something the policeman didn’t even do before he left.

Here is the story from CBS Baltimore:

Brown died June 13 after a group of friends threw rocks at the front door of Officer James Laboard. Investigators say the off-duty officer chased Brown, dragged him out of bushes and a struggle ensued. Brown fell unconscious and died. The coroner ruled it homicide by asphyxiation. The officer was charged with manslaughter and released on his own recognizance–a move the Brown family calls an insult.

“There’s no way he should be walking the streets like this and I don’t have my son,” Brown said.

The family is now petitioning the State’s Attorney’s Office to file second-degree murder charges.

“We want second-degree murder. Nothing less!” said Marvin “Doc” Cheatham, National Action Network.

They’re also appealing to lawmakers to ban police officers from using any force that could restrict a person’s airway.

“I don’t care if it’s a chokehold or sleeper hold, bearhug–whatever can put you unconscious. We don’t want that to happen again,” said Brown family attorney Russell Neverdon.
