The officer who shot and killed 68-year old Kenneth Chamberlain Sr. in his White Plains, NY apartment was cleared of all criminal charges on Thursday.
In a shocking twist, the Westchester County District Attorney Janet DiFiore said:
“We did everything we could and should do to put before that grand jury every piece of relevant and admissible evidence.”
Officer Anthony Carelli is the man who had been identified as Chamberlain’s shooter.
Carelli, along with other White Plains police, showed up at Chamberlain’s home on November 19 responding to a mistaken medical alert after the former marine had accidentally triggered a device used because of a heart condition.
Despite Chamberlain’s insistence no help was needed, a standoff occurred in which police claim Chamberlain attacked the officers with a hatchet, and said that the subsequent shooting had been in self-defense.
Months later, it was revealed the officers had used several racial slurs while storming into Chamberlain’s home, even allegedly taunting him with a taser gun.
Chamberlain’s son condemned the Grand Jury’s decision on Thursday, saying it was a “blatant cover up of the murderous tactics.”
As for the usage of racial slurs during the Chamberlain standoff, DiFiore says the White Plains police department has promised to review the matter.
The family had a petition set-up for Chamberlain regarding the Grand Jury hearing in the case shooting death of Chamberlain, Sr.
