A grand just just announced on Friday that they will not indict a Maryland police officer who killed an unarmed man who had Down Syndrome.
“They felt no further investigation was necessary,” Frederick County State’s Attorney J. Charles Smith, said about the death of Robert Ethan Saylor, 26.
Smith explained at a news conference just outside of the county courthouse, that “no crime had been committed.”
As with all grand juries, the proceedings were held in secrecy. Three deputies involved in the death were Lt. Scott Jewell, Sgt. Rich Rochford and Deputy First Class James Harris.
Saylor’s parents said they were “extremely disappointed and saddened and concerned.”
“This is a really hard day for them,” their attorney Sharon Krevor-Weisbaum said.
“They’re going to have to digest this unsettling news and determine their next step.”
