Roy Oliver, former Balch Springs, Texas officer, convicted of 15-year-old Jordan Edwards' murder

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T

A former Texas police officer has been found guilty of murder for fatally shooting an unarmed black teenager as he left a house party in a car full of teenagers.

Jurors convicted Roy Oliver on Tuesday in a Dallas County courtroom.

Oliver was fired from the Balch Springs Police Department days after the April 2017 shooting. Oliver killed 15-year-old Jordan Edwards when he fired into a moving car carrying five black teenagers leaving a local house party.

Edwards was in the front passenger seat.

Oliver testified that he opened fire after seeing the car move toward his partner. He says he thought his partner was in danger. But his partner told jurors he didn't fear for his life and never felt the need to fire his weapon.

I know.   How can the lie be perpetuated when the truth is exposed?

Oh....   and here's another:

Ex-cop Michael Slager sentenced to 20 years for shooting death of Walter Scott

So you have two instances where justice is actually being served.  It's about fucking time.

Yep, it's a "man bites dog" story.

And this one started the whole "Hands Up Don't Shoot" BS line of BLM:

None other than the Obama/Holder Justice department no less:

It was reasonable for police Officer Darren Wilson to be afraid of Michael Brown in their encounter last summer, a Justice Department investigation concluded, and thus he cannot be prosecuted for fatally shooting the unarmed 18-year-old.

This must be fake news.

Many liberals and progressives have assured me that no cops are being punished for killing blacks.

Especially in a conservative state like (GASP!) TEXAS.

Better stop posting fake news!!
