Discussion: Grand Jury Indicts 2 Officers In Fatal Shooting Of 6-Year-Old Autistic Boy

Discussion for article #243661

What is the back story here? Why on earth would these two LEOs shoot 18 rounds into the vehicle?

Slate has this: http://www.slate.com/blogs/the_slatest/2015/11/10/jeremy_mardis_and_chris_few_police_shooting_details_emerge.html

It’s pretty ugly. Seems like there will be an attempted murder for the injured father as well.

Unbelievable. How much lower can they sink than killing an autistic 6 year old/

Thanks for the link. I hope they spend the rest of their lives behind bars. The general population doesn’t usually take kindly to child-killers in their midst.

Let alone those who are abusing LEO authority.

Well, I think they were trying to get the Dad actually?

Don’t ask.

According to the slate article linked below it appears one of the officers is a psycho

“The Finest” indeed.

Was this the one where they claimed they were serving a warrant and later it turned out there was no warrant to be served?

Unfortunately, even if these give other cops pause, they will still be abusing the public at record rates.

If cops hit innocent folks when they unload their guns in a panic, just think what it would be like if all the “good” guys had guns. Holy fuckin’ shit. They didn’t call it the wild west for nothing.

Thank you for the link, which should have been in the TPM article to begin with, we shouldn’t have to depend on the comments section to get the complete picture.
