Protesters object to lack of charges in police shooting
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – More than 50 people gathered outside the home of a Kansas City area prosecutor to protest her decision not to charge a police officer who shot and killed a Black man last year.
The protesters called for justice for 47-year-old Donnie Sanders as they marched to the home of Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker.
Peters Baker announced Monday that investigators didn’t find enough evidence to support charges against the Kansas City police officer involved in the shooting.
Sanders’ sisters, who participated in the protest, said they want Peters Baker to release a complete copy of the investigation into the shooting and for the officer who shot their brother to be held accountable.
