VICTORY: Justice for Jasmine Thar

Jasmine Thar

Jasmine Thar was a 16-year-old African-American girl who was shot and killed while preparing for a routine shopping trip with her family. The 23-year-old Caucasian male who fired the fatal shot was not charged with a crime of any kind because he claimed it was an accident—despite the fact that police found a Confederate flag and Nazi literature in his home. Jasmine’s family started a MoveOn Petition demanding justice. Now, a case that was about to be swept under the rug has received tremendous media attention in North Carolina and become the subject of a federal civil rights investigation.
