Last week, the officer who fatally shot unarmed veteran Anthony Hill told members of the grand jury he, too, felt compelled to protect himself when Hill, nude at the time, did not obey orders to stop coming toward him.
An expert witness testified on behalf of the prosecution that he could find no justification for the shooting. Friends of Hill told The AJC he had struggled to find the right medication for bipolar disorder, diagnosed while the airman was serving in Afghanistan.
In the Hill case the grand jury recommended a follow-up interview be conducted of the officer who arrived on the scene after the shooting along with a “more thorough interview” of officer who fired the deadly shots.
