No Charges in the Death of Mr Earl McNeil

San Diego County District Attorney Summer Stephan, in a move that saddened many and surprised few, declined to file charges against the National City Police Officers who failed to protect Mr Earl McNeil while he was in their custody.  Along with her announcement of non-action, some of the video footage and other documentation has now been released.  Ms Stephan evidently believes the level of indifference to human life and dignity it shows does not rise to a criminal level, regardless of what contribution it may have made to Mr McNeil’s death.

Community Activists, led by Ms Tasha Williamson, disagree with Ms Stephan’s lack of action, and vow to continue to advocate for justice for Mr McNeil.
