Judge clears killer cop in 2012 Cleveland, Ohio shooting
The ruling acquitted Officer Michael Brelo of manslaughter charges stemming from the deaths of Timothy Russell, 43, and Malissa Williams, 30, who were killed on November 29, 2012, after police officers fired more than 130 rounds into their car.
Both Russell and Williams were homeless, suffered from mental health problems, and were struggling with drug addictions. Police claim that they attempted to pull the car over for a traffic violation and began chasing it when it pulled away. The chase ended when police rammed the vehicle and unleashed a hail of bullets.
