The grand jury investigating the shooting of an unarmed man by a Bellaire police officer, will decide whether to indict the officer or clear him of any wrongdoing.
What action do you think the grand jury should take?
Meanwhile, Tolan family attorney Geoffrey Berg confirmed today that a civil lawsuit will be filed soon on behalf of his clients.
Berg did not want to elaborate, but one would have to assume that the civil case would target the city of Bellaire and Sgt. Jeffery Cotton.
An alleged violation of Tolan’s civil rights at the hands of Sgt. Cotton? The City of Bellaire and and its police department allegedly engaging in a pattern of racial profiling?
But, that’s just a hunch. I’m a reporter not an attorney.
I’ll let you know the moment the civil suit is filed, and what monetary award the Tolan’s are seeking.
