An attorney for the family of De'Von Bailey says the 19-year-old African-American who was shot and killed by Colorado Springs police this month, has been maligned following his death. Attorney Darold Killmer also says the family continues to push for an independent investigation into what happened. The District Attorney has not yet decided if the officers involved in the shooting should be charged.
