A Minneapolis Police officer that shot an armed black man during a raid will not face charges, prosecutors announced Wednesday.
In February, a SWAT team executed a no-knock warrant on an apartment building as part of a homicide investigation. When officer Mark Hanneman saw that one of the occupants had a gun, he shot the man, fearing for his life.
Left-wing activists were quick to condemn the officer’s actions, ignoring the facts of the case. They hit the streets in the 1000s, calling for police “accountability.”
After prosecutors reviewed the case, they determined that they could not prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Hanneman acted irresponsibly, and decline to press charges.
Unfortunately for the police officer, this is not the end of his legal worries. The family of the black man that was killed plans on filing a lawsuit against the city of Minneapolis.
