    LIMA, Ohio - The Rev. Jesse Jackson Thursday called the acquittal of Lima Police Sgt. Joseph Chavalia "an injustice," and said the organization he founded, the Rainbow PUSH Coalition, plans to intervene under the leadership of Lima's Interdenominational Ministerial Alliance.

    Sergeant Chavalia was found not guilty Monday by an all-white jury in the Jan. 4 shooting death of Lima resident Tarika Wilson, a biracial woman who was shot in her home during a police raid while she held her 13-month-old son, Sincere Wilson, in her arms.

    Sincere was also shot in the shoulder and hand and had a finger amputated as a result.

    Both were shot in front of Wilson's five other children who were hiding in an upstairs bedroom while police searched for Wilson's boyfriend, Anthony Terry, who was wanted on drug charges.

    The Rev. H. Frank Taylor, pastor of Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church in Lima, who is also president of the city's interdenominational alliance, said the alliance will take action as a result of Sergeant Chavalia's acquittal. He also said 32 to 40 ministers from black churches in Lima will meet Monday at Shiloh Missionary Church in the city to determine the course of action.

    "We will see what we need to do to show our displeasure, Mr. Taylor said. "Whether that will result in a march or some other action will be determined after our meeting Monday... We want to bring the attention of people across the nation to the injustice that was done here."

    My problem is that it is implied that race was somehow a factor in the shooting, as though the officer ran in there and executed her because of her race. Notice the comment in the article concerning the race of the jurors.
