Lawyer Mark Geragos responds to BPD informant death investigation

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - The attorney for a slain police informant's family was unsatisfied by the investigation into his death.

Mark Geragos is representing the family of Jorge Ramirez, who was killed in a shootout with police in a hotel parking lot Sept. 16, 2013.
"This is an outrage. This was not even a remotely independent investigation," Geragos said. "The uncontroverted evidence has been ignored or covered up."

Five police officers were returned to duty after an internal review determined the incident that left Jorge Ramirez and Justin Bryan Harger dead was within policy.
