SummaryThis was a super big deal in Claremont; very controversial and incited a lot of (super peaceful) protests. It was unclear whether or not the victim was actually armed, though the police claimed that he shot at them. There were no prints found on the gun that the victim allegedly shot, nor had it been fired. The two officers were named officers of the year and the police also released the uncle's record to the local newspaper. I was a kid at the time, but the event prompted a lot of people to start thinking about race in a way that they never had. Many people in Claremont previously liked to think of our town as an academic utopia that was above it all.
