Texas police officer faces murder charge in teen's death

DALLAS A white Texas police officer has been charged with murder in the shooting of a black teenager for which the officer was fired, according to an arrest warrant issued Friday.

The Dallas County Sheriff's Office issued the warrant for former Balch Springs officer Roy Oliver in the April 29 shooting death of 15-year-old Jordan Edwards, according to a sheriff's office statement. The statement cited evidence that suggested Oliver "intended to cause serious bodily injury and commit an act clearly dangerous to human life that caused the death."

Oliver fired a rifle at a car of teenagers leaving a party, striking and killing Edwards. The shooting led to protests calling for Oliver to be charged. About 200 people attended a vigil Thursday night in the Dallas suburb.

The warrant states that any peace officer may arrest Oliver, and that Oliver could also turn himself in to authorities. Meanwhile, sheriff's spokeswoman Melinda Urbina said, the investigation into the shooting continues.

2. Win-Win - The DA gets to look tough, and the TX jury won't convict

"Gosh, we just couldn't agree to convict for murder, y'know?"

3. I hope they throw the book at the bastard.

Poor, sweet kid. His short life senselessly ended by another trigger happy cop. RIP Jordan.

4. Good

 

Can't see any other outcome being correct in this case.
