UNION CITY, Ga. (Atlanta Daily World) — The acting U.S. attorney for the Northern District of Georgia announced he is launching a probe into the Union City police officer shooting of an unarmed and cuffed black man who was reportedly lying on his stomach in 2011.
This comes, however, after a second Fulton County grand jury decided — again — not to indict officer Luther Lewis even though he shot teenager Ariston Waiters twice in the back.
“My son did nothing wrong, and he was shot like an animal,” Freda Waiters told WSB-TV.
“They were very familiar about this case already and they will continue with the efforts and information our office has just given them,” private investigator T.J. Ward said told the media.
