U.S.A: Brooklyn DA Kenneth Thompson Requests House ArresT For Cop Convicted In Akai Gurley Manslaughter. REALLY??

After a Brooklyn jury made a historic decision to convict a police officer in the killing of an unarmed black man, now a prosecutor is looking to let the former cop basically off the hook.
Jurors expressed shock and dismay Friday over Brooklyn District Attorney Kenneth Thompson’s recommendation of a no-jail sentence for the ex-NYPD cop who killed Akai Gurley.
“What was the point of prosecuting him?” asked a 62-year-old juror who requested anonymity. “What did we do this for?”

“I agree he doesn’t deserve tremendous time,” the juror added, “but if something is wrong, you shouldn’t get a slap on the wrist.”
Former Officer Peter Liang faces up to 15 years in prison after he was convicted of manslaughter in the November 2014 slaying of Gurley, 28.
The unarmed father was mortally wounded when a bullet fired by Liang ricocheted into his chest inside a darkened stairwell at the Pink Houses in East New York.
