Omaha Police Department releases videos of officer fatally shooting man in November

Source: Omaha World Herald

By Alia Conley

The Omaha Police Department on Friday released three videos depicting the quick and tense Nov. 19 traffic stop that led to an officer fatally shooting 35-year-old Kenneth Jones.

Footage from the body cameras of Officers Dan Faulkner and Richard Martier, plus footage from their cruiser camera, were sent to news outlets Friday afternoon after a group of journalists and citizens on Thursday watched the videos that had been reviewed by a grand jury in March.

Faulkner fired four shots, striking Jones in the back three times, after he felt the metal of a gun and Jonesí hand on the trigger about a minute after a traffic stop. The officers pulled a car over at 27th and Harrison Streets because they suspected that the driver was impaired.

Four months later, 16 Douglas County residents serving on the grand jury listened to witness testimony and evidence in the case. They declined to indict the officers in the shooting.

2. "Hands up! Open the Door! Stop reaching!"

Impossible to open a door with hands up and without reaching.

Also, shot in the back. I don't give a f*ck about him having a gun, or even that he wasn't legally allowed to own a gun. Neither was Rittenhouse but they smiled and let him leave the scene AFTER he told them he shot someone. ACAB.
