Ex-Cop Found Not Guilty After Shooting of Unarmed Man

Former Mesa, Arizona, Police Officer Philip “Mitch” Brailsford was found not guilty Thursday of second-degree murder in the 2016 shooting of an unarmed man. He was also found not guilty of reckless manslaughter. Daniel Shaver, 26, was shot in a hotel hallway. Video of the events leading up to his death showed him on his knees begging for his life. Mark Geragos, a lawyer for Shaver’s widow, called the shooting an “execution” and said on Thursday: “The justice system miserably failed Daniel [Shaver] and his family.”
