#KerrickTrial Jury Views Dash-Cam Video of Moment Jonathan Ferrell Was Shot by Charlotte Police
Full Dash-Cam Video shown to #KerrickTrial Jury (viewer discretion advised):
On Wednesday, jurors were shown a police dash-cam video from the night officer Randall “Wes” Kerrick shot and killed Jonathan Ferrell, a Black man looking for help after a car crash.
In the video, Ferrell is shown walking alongside the curb as Kerrick’s patrol cruiser pulls up. Without identifying themselves or issuing orders, a taser is fired at Ferrell. He then begins running toward the cruiser and out of the frame as someone yells, “Get on the ground!” Twelve shots are then fired.
Ferrel, 24, was killed after being hit a total of 10 times.
Twitter responded with questions to the episode and trial.

THREE KEY POINTS from Ferrell Video: 1. Looks like he gets pointed at with taser immediately. WHY?!?! 2. CLEARLY no weapon. #KerrickTrial
