Last month, Pulaski County prosecutor Larry Jegley declined to bring charges against Officer Charles Starks, who shot Bradley Blackshire 15 times through a windshield, killing him, as the car was in motion. Jegley said the vehicle was an “imminent threat” that justified the officer’s use of deadly force.
