ACLU Condemns DC Police

The death of a Southeast DC teen by DC police has caused the ACLU to denounce police actions.

The DC chapter of the ACLU is blasting the DC police for the police involved fatal shooting of an 18-year-old man in Southeast DC Wednesday.
The organization says the officer who shot Deon Kay, said the police “made no attempt to de-escalate, gave Kay no warning or directive given to drop a weapon — a weapon that Kay appears to have thrown in the air and which was recovered almost 100 feet from his body.”  The officers involved in the Deon Kay slaying have been put on administrative leave.
