Another day, another black child has been gunned down by a trigger-happy police officer leaving another community enraged and another family in pain.
This time, his name was Jordan Edwards. He was only 15 years old.
According to attorney S. Lee Merritt, legal counsel for Jordan’s family, the teen was leaving a party Saturday night with friends after hearing gunshots. He was struck by the officer’s bullet through the passenger-side window of the vehicle in which he was traveling.
The Balch Springs (Texas) Police Department released a ridiculous statement in which police claimed that the boys were “backing down the street toward officers in an aggressive manner.”
