In both cases, a grand jury decided that no criminal charges should be filed against them.
The decisions, handed down within two weeks of each other, sparked a racial divide and outrage across the country and around the world.
And of course, most recently, in Cleveland, the prosecutor there seems to have gone out of his way to direct a grand jury to NOT bring back an indictment against the cop who shot and killed 12-year-old Tamir Rice who was playing with a toy gun.
