The person accused in the killing that sparked the "South Capitol Street Massacre" last year was released from jail two days before the death and was under the control of two D.C. agencies but had yet to report for electronic monitoring, court records show.
The 2010 killing of 16-year-old Brishell Jones and two other youths in the so-called "South Capitol Street Massacre" were the result of "gross negligence, racial discrimination and indifference" by D.C. government officials and agencies, according to a lawsuit filed recently in D.C. Superior Court.
On behalf of her deceased daughter, Brishell, Nardyne Jefferies, who has pushed for legislation to improve youth supervision and health services, says in her lawsuit that the retaliatory shooting deaths that occurred on March 30, 2010, could have been avoided were it not for a "culture of action and inaction based on irresponsible judgment and decision making" by District officials.
“You just see emptiness, hollowness, no hope,” she said of the five men.
