In news from Pasco, Washington, three police officers who shot and killed an unarmed Mexican farmworker earlier this year in an incident which sparked protests will not face criminal charges. Police fired 17 shots at Antonio Zambrano-Montes. Cellphone video shows him turning to face police and raising his hands before he is shot. On Wednesday, Franklin County Prosecutor Shawn Sant said the shooting was “reasonable under the standards established in our state laws.” Sant said police killed Zambrano-Montes because he turned toward them with a rock in his hand. An attorney for Zambrano-Montes’ family said they were “sorely disappointed” and would be filing a lawsuit.
