    Here's an article from my morning paper......What was the need to put the work "black" in the description?
    Mississippi officials probing death of unarmed black man after police confrontation; lawyer says he was choked

    The Mississippi Bureau of Investigation has launched a probe into the death of Jonathan Sanders, 39.
    Mississippi authorities have launched a probe into a police altercation that left an unarmed black man dead.

    Jonathan Sanders, 39, died Wednesday after getting into a fight with a Stonewall police officer between 10:30 p.m. and 11:00 p.m., department chief Michael Street told The Clarion-Ledger.

    Sanders, a father of two who owned horses and a buggy, was exercising one of his animals when he was stopped by Officer Kevin Herrington, said the victim’s lawyer Stewart Parish.

    Citing witness accounts, Parish told local ABC affiliate WTOK that Herrington pulled Sanders from the horse and choked him to death with a flashlight.

    But Street rejected the lawyer’s account, saying no weapons were involved and Sanders voluntarily got down from his horse.

    The results of Sanders’ autopsy are expected next week, officials said.

    “We won’t know until the autopsy is over what was the actual cause of death,” Street told The Guardian.

    “But there was no flashlight used to choke anybody — that’s false. And there were no shots fired by either man, there were no weapons at all, and he was not dragged off a horse.”

    Sanders’ girlfriend, Charita Kennedy, told WTOK he was breaking no laws when he was stopped by Herrington.

    She said Herrington began choking Sanders who died on the scene after telling the officer he couldn’t breathe.

    Herrington, who joined the force two or three years ago, was placed on administrative leave, according to the Meridian Star.

    The Mississippi Bureau of Investigation is investigating Sanders’ death.

    Agency spokesman Warren Strain said initial news accounts contained numerous false details.

    "There has been a good bit of misinformation already in this case," Strain said. "It is still under investigation by our department."

    Sanders, who has an extensive criminal record, was out on bond from an April arrest for cocaine possession. He has served prison time for selling cocaine and has also been busted on charges of domestic violence and disturbance of the family peace, according to The Clarion-Ledger.

    The lawyer representing Sanders’ family, C. J. Lawrence, didn’t return requests for comment.

    Stonewall, a town of roughly 1,100 residents, is located near the state’s eastern border with Alabama.

    Street, the police chief, appealed for calm.

    “We don’t need anything being taken out into the street,” he told The Guardian. “Our community is a good community. We don’t see any issues there. We are going to continue our good relationship.”
