Washington Post: Grand jury rejects criminal charges in death of Robert Saylor, man with Down syndrome
Robert Saylor, a 26-year-old man with Down syndrome, sat in a movie theatre after having watched a movie, acting as if he was going to sit through the movie again without buying another ticket.That prompted three police officers to kill him.Friday, a grand jury determined that no crime was committed, even though his death was ruled a homicide.
this is disgusting.
If he has Downs, why is he at the movie theater alone? Why wasn’t there a caretaker there to make sure he stayed in line...
