CHARLOTTE, NC – Members of the NAACP plan to be there as the case against a CMPD Officer heads back to court.
Monday, attorneys for Officer Randall “Wes” Kerrick will ask a judge to block a second Grand Jury from reviewing the case.
Tuesday, Grand Jury members refused to indict Kerrick, who is charged with Voluntary Manslaughter in the death of Jonathan Ferrell.
NAACP Members say they want to be at the courthouse Monday to show their support for the Ferrell family.
“Actions speak louder than any words ever could. And we want to validate the strong talk that we heard last Thursday at the rally with a show of physical action and support,” says Former Charlotte NAACP President Dwayne Collins.
Attorneys for Officer Kerrick say the law doesn’t allow prosecutors to resubmit the case.
If it does go to trial – Kerrick’s attorneys say they will be able to prove the shooting was justified.
