Family Upset at Decision in Minneapolis Shooting

An attorney for Mr Clark's family has said they are "anguished and frustrated" that the policemen will not face discipline proceedings.

Police have said Ringgenberg and Schwarze were responding to a reported assault when they arrived to find Clark interfering with paramedics trying to help the female victim.

Ms Harteau said she could say "with absolute certainty" that she supported the actions of the two officers, who have been named in U.S. media as Mark Ringgenberg and Dustin Schwarze.

Both the county prosecutor and the US attorney declined earlier to bring charges against the officers.

Mr Clark's death triggered protests lasting several weeks, including an 18-day encampment around Minneapolis' police precinct.

Albert Goins, an attorney for the Clark family, could not immediately be reached for comment.

Schwarze then shot Clark, 24, in an encounter that lasted barely more than a minute from the time officers first arrived.

New Clinton TV ad in Florida features Khan family
His attacks horrified many in the Republican Party, with many calling it quits on Trump after he insulted this Gold Star family. The minute-long ad is a testimonial about the death of Khan's son, Captain Humayun Khan , who was killed while serving in Iraq.

Some witnesses said Clark was handcuffed when he was shot, but investigators said the officers unsuccessfully tried to handcuff Clark, and he was shot in an ensuing struggle after one officer shouted that Clark had his hand on an officer's gun.

In explaining her decision, Harteau cited what she called two key findings by the BCA investigation: That Clark wasn't handcuffed and that his DNA was found on Ringgenberg's holster and gun. "This sends a chilling message to all Minneapolis police officers that the next time they confront a similar situation they should take another life".

Raeda Paulos could hardly hide her joy when the television inside her cramped trailer showed Iraqi forces raising the national flag over a church in her hometown, a day after it was freed from Islamic State rule.

In June, the U.S. Department of Justice declined prosecution and the federal civil rights investigation concluded Clark's death was "undeniably tragic" but "evidence was insufficient to meet substantial evidentiary requirements".

Protests erupted again eight months later when police fatally shot Philando Castile, another black man, during a traffic stop. Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman made a similar decision in March to not file charges.
