MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Community members came together Sunday to protest Ramsey County Attorney John Choi’s decision to not prosecute the St. Paul police officers who killed a man earlier this year.

In March, two officers shot and killed Cordale Handy while responding to a domestic incident. The officers say Handy pointed a gun at them before they opened fire. He was shot seven times.

Handy’s family says the shooting was unjustified — and argues the investigation wasn’t transparent.

“When I think of Cordale, my heart skips a beat. So that’s all day, everyday,” Cordale’s mother Kimberly Handy Jones said. “One loss to one of us is a loss to all of us. And an injustice anywhere is an injustice everywhere.”

Sunday’s event was hosted by Black Lives Matter Minnesota, New North and Blue Lies Matter.

    Protested by the same people who always decry police actions. Stop committing crimes and you wont have to protest when things go bad.
