Protesters Rally Before Anticipated Decision in Clark Case
MINNEAPOLIS -- A large crowd gathered outside the Hennepin County Government Center to demand charges against two Minneapolis police officers involved in the fatal shooting of a black man.
Twenty-four-year-old Jamar Clark was shot Nov. 15 during what authorities called a struggle. But some who say they saw the shooting have said Clark wasn't struggling and was handcuffed.
Clark's father, James Clark, told the crowd at Saturday's rally that he wants the officers prosecuted.
He says: "We are tired of all this ... There needs to be justice."
After the two-hour rally, some members of the crowd marched through Minneapolis streets, chanting, "No justice, no peace. Prosecute the police."
Prosecutor has said he hopes to announce a decision on whether to file charges by the end of March.
