In Alabama, the attorney general cleared the officer who shot and killed 21-year-old African-American man E.J. Bradford at a Birmingham-area mall on Thanksgiving Day, after responding to an unrelated shooting. The ACLU of Alabama said in a statement, “The … characterization of E.J. Bradford as a 'threat' that needed 'eliminating' reveals how little regard the Attorney General has for the life of this Black man. … We won’t stay quiet while law enforcement continues to inflict lethal violence against Black people and attempt to justify it.” Bradford’s family says they will sue.
