AFRICANGLOBE - A Black teen in Alabama will spend the next 65 years of his life behind bars for a murder that was committed by police officers. In 2015, Lakeith Smith, 15 at the time, was allegedly involved in two home break-ins in the town of Millbrook, Alabama, according to WSFA. When Smith and his friend, A’Donte Washington, were confronted by police, the police claimed that Washington, 16, had a gun. Without hesitation, the police shot Washington four times, killing the teenager at the scene. The officer who shot and killed Washington, still unnamed, was not charged because courts ruled that the killing was justified.
