– David McNew/Getty ImagesThe Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced Tuesday that it will not be filing charges against the two police officers involved in the 2014 shooting death of Ezell Ford.AdvertisementIn a 28-page report (pdf) with most of the officers’ statements redacted, the Justice System Integrity Division of the district attorney’s office determined that Officers Sharlton Wampler and Antonio Villegas, who were working on a gang-enforcement detail, “acted lawfully in self-defense and in defense of others when they shot Ezell Ford, 25, on Aug. 11, 2014.”It took the prosecutor’s office 20 months to investigate the killing of Ford, a black man who had been diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder and whose family said he was lying on the ground complying with officers when he was shot.As the Los Angeles Times notes, his death generated controversy almost immediately and became an oft-mentioned example in the ongoing criticism of how police officers interact with members of the black and Latino communities in Los Angeles.
