Nisour Square massacre. 17 unarmed citizens, including 9 year old Ali Kinani, were murdered by Blackwater (Xe) employees. All charges for 5 of the men who self-admitted to being the group responsible for the shooting have been dropped. A sixth plead guilty to manslaughter and informed on the other five. That did not affect the dropping of the charges.
The men whose charged were dropped are: Donald Ball, Dustin Heard, Evan Liberty, Nick Slatten and Paul Slough. The man who plead guilty is Jeremy Ridgeway
Below is a beautiful video about Ali Kinani’s father’s quest to find justice.
From the film, Mohammed, Ali’s father, speaks about what happens after the Blackwater employees leave:
I opened the [car] door to see if [Ali] was okay. I opened the door and he started falling out. I stood there in shock, watching him as the door opened, and his brain fell to the ground between my feet.”
