An all white jury found former cop Robert Lawlor innocent of murdering 18 year old Jashon Bryant while on patrol in 2005.
Some reactions by Jashon’s family to the verdict:
“A policeman has license to kill black people in our neighborhood and get away with it” -Keith Thomas, Bryant’s father.
“We still live in the slavery days. Do what you want to the niggers out here on the street, because you’re going to get away with it” - Keith Thomas
“It wasn’t no justice”, “That man killed my son, and he got applauded for it.” -Jashon’s mother, Cynthia
