The question should not be whether it was an accident or not. The question should be WHY is the shooting not being taken to trial for investigation. If it so proven to be an accident, then people, inlcuding family memebers will be more understanding of how such a thing can happen. It should not be legal for anyone to just "SAY" to a police offier or anyone else that any killing was 'JUST" an accident. It should be illegal for a police office to not arrest someone, when there is a shooting and a death involved. Accidental killings need to be taken to trial and proven to be an accident and justice should not depend on race, which unfortunately in this country sometimes does.
