To the surprise of many, Tuesday, a grand jury decided not to indict Randall Kerrick on the charge of voluntary manslaughter.
Kerrick, who was on-duty as an officer at the time, murdered Jonathan Ferrell on September 14, 2013 after firing 12 shots and striking him 10 times. Ferrell was unarmed and seeking help in Charlotte, North Carolina after he got into a single-car accident.
WSOC reports one group plans to protest the controversial decision:
“Charlotte-based group True Healing Under God is planning a rally for Thursday night. It will be held at Next Level Ministries on Orr Road on Thursday at 6:30 p.m. According to organizers, local leaders will speak out against the refusal to indict and announce plans of a boycott if extreme charges are not brought forth against Kerrick.”
The attorney general’s office is re-submitting its case against Kerrick to a grand jury Monday seeking the same charge of voluntary manslaughter.
