Two Albuquerque police officers were charged with second-degree murder for an on-the-job shooting for the first time in at least half a century. They were facing up to 15 years in prison for killing James Boyd, who’d been camping illegally for about a month in the Foothills of the Sandia Mountains in 2014. The jury announced that it was deadlocked Tuesday, Oct. 11.
Protests outside Donald Trump's Albuquerque rally became a national story after people stormed police barriers and threw rocks at officers. But before all of that went down, hundreds demonstrated peacefully for hours.
