Lawyer: CMPD Officer Randall Kerrick Justified in Shooting Jonathan Ferrell 10 Times

Get ready for Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Officer Randall Kerrick and his attorneys to paint former Florida A&M University football player Jonathan Ferrell as a monster.

Kerrick’s defense attorney, Michael Greene, said his client’s “actions were justified on the night in question.” In other words, Randall Kerrick was justified in shooting Jonathan Ferrell 10 times even though he was unarmed and not a threat.

This case is eerily reminiscent of Kathryn Johnston, an elderly woman who was gunned down in her Atlanta home after cops kicked in her door following a no-knock warrant. They lied and said there were drugs in her house. Needless to say, the truth prevailed and some of those officers are behind bars.

Kerrick’s next court date is October 6 for a probable cause hearing. If they let Randall Kerrick go for the murder of Jonathan Ferrell, the fallout will be worse than George Zimmerman’s acquittal in the murder of Trayvon Martin.
