Activists carry coffin of woman killed by Phoenix police

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 08/23/2014 - 08:15
By David Schwartz PHOENIX (Reuters) - Activists protesting the fatal shooting of a mentally ill woman by a Phoenix police sergeant last week carried her coffin to City Hall on Friday, demanding an independent investigation into her killing. Michelle Cusseaux's family and other supporters paraded the 50-year-old woman's wooden casket through downtown Phoenix a day ahead of her funeral in what they said was a symbolic move to show they will not let her death pass without action. "She can no longer speak, so we must do that for her," said the Rev. Jarrett Maupin, who helped lead the demonstration that also went to the U.S. "We are not giving up." Phoenix police have launched two investigations into the Aug. 14 killing of Cusseaux, who died from a single gunshot wound after she threatened police with a claw hammer at the door of her apartment.
