The DeOnte Rawlings Files Revisited

Last week saw a settlement in the case of the 2007 shooting of 14-year-old DeOnte Rawlings. Rawlings was being chased by two off-duty cops, after having allegedly stolen the minibike of one. The officers claimed the teenager had a gun (though no ballistic evidence or gun was ever found). And while the officers were cleared by the MPD and placed back on duty, the $100 million civil suit was slated to start last week.

For reference, Jason Cherkis' 2009 cover story and series of posts on evidence in the case are particularly fascinating.
