It shows Officer Clinton Fox firing at the man as he ran away. The shooting happened in August.

Just last week, prosecutors decided not to file charges against Fox.

Protesters were out over the weekend in response to the decision.

The man who was killed, 50-year-old Patrick Harmon, was originally stopped for riding his bicycle erratically.

Police tried to arrest Harmon after they realized he had several outstanding felony warrants.

That's when he ran.

Officer Fox says Harmon had a knife and threatened to stab him and that's why he shot him.

The officer has been placed on modified duty as the investigation continues.


Comments:
A seven-week-long investigation found no wrongdoing on the part of Officer Clinton Fox, the man who shot and killed Harmon.

Last week, the Salt Lake City District Attorney’s office issued a press release, stating that the shooting and killing of Harmon, "was legally justified."

On Sunday, over 100 protesters demonstrated outside of the district attorney’s office, demanding he be fired, upset with what they believe to be a miscarriage of justice, and for what they see as yet another instance of a black man murdered by a white police officer–and a legal system ill-equipped or unwilling to treat cops fairly and equally.

When it comes to black criminals or suspects, there is no justice for officers, only resistance from the black community because they think THEY are entitled of a life of reparations and don't have to follow the "WHITE MANS" laws. Uh people, black men have also been involved in making laws, quit living n the past
