Officer Shown on Video Threatening to Kill Protester Resigns
A suburban St. Louis police officer shown on cellphone video pointing his rifle at demonstrators in Ferguson and threatening them is now out of a job.
St. Ann Police Chief Aaron Jimenez confirmed in an interview with The Associated Press that police Lt. Ray Albers resigned Thursday. A phone call seeking comment from Albers was not returned.
The incident happened Aug. 19 during protests that followed the Ferguson police shooting death of Michael Brown.
