Seven months after protests shut down the Alabama mall where a police officer shot and killed EJ Bradford, prosecutors are seeking justice against the troublemakers who disturbed the way of life in the idyllic southern suburb…
The people who were protesting.
On Nov. 22, 2018, a police officer in the Birmingham, Ala., suburb of Hoover shot and killed 21-year-old Emantic Bradford Jr. at the Galleria Mall. Hours later, Hoover Police Department officials issued a statement and held a press conference announcing that Bradford was killed because he opened fire in the crowded mall during Thanksgiving night shopping.
