Justin Crowley-Smilek, US Army Ranger, Maine

Justin Crowley-Smilek was a US Army veteran who was shot and killed by a Farmington, Maine police officer in 2011. Justin had deployed to Afghanistan in 2006 and returned suffering with Post Traumatic Stress. He was later honorably discharged from the military for PTSD. He moved back to Maine after his discharge from the Army. The shooting was deemed justified by the State Attorney General’s office. The family pursued justice in the civilian courts and has just recently been granted permission to move forward with a case against Officer Ryan Rosie.
