On July 15, the Georgy Louisgène Justice Committee rallied outside Brooklyn Distract Attorney Charles Hynes offices at 350 Jay Street to protest his decision to not file charges against two cops who fatally shot Georgy Louisgène, 23, in Brooklyn on Jan. 16.

An autopsy report obtained by the family reveals that Louisgène was shot in the side and back, according to Abby Louis Jeune, the victims sister. They werent shooting to stop him, she said. They were shooting to kill.

The shooting by New York City Police Officers James Muirhead and Joseph Thomposn was a justified use of force, Hynes said in a statement on June 28.

Every killing that the NYPD does in Brooklyn, Charles Hynes just lets these officers go free, Louis Jeune replied. They know that Hynes will cover up for them for they just keep on killing.

The Louisgène family and their lawyers now intend to take the case to the Federal courts.
