Crowds gathered in Fairfax County to protest the death of a woman who died in police custody
 
Natasha McKenna  died days after being tased several times by police. 
 
The officers involved have been cleared of any criminal wrong-doing.
 
Sunday afternoon protestors gathered on the steps of the Fairfax County courthouse believe they should face charges.
 
A video was released earlier in September on youtube, shows a prolonged struggle between a naked, mentally ill inmate and five deputies in biohazard suits who shocked her four times with a stun gun before she lost consciousness.
 
The inmate, 37-year-old Natasha McKenna, died several days after the struggle, prompting a months-long criminal investigation. 
 
A medical examiner  ruled the death accidental, specifically by excited delirium associated with use of restraints and a stun gun. McKenna's schizophrenia was listed as a contributing factor. The case remains the subject of a federal civil rights investigation.
 
Fox  Five's  Shannon Travis was with the  protestors hearing their demands and he has the story for us.
