Jordan Edwards Murder By Cop – Teen Party Was Alcohol Free

Shortly after the shooting of Jordan Edwards by a Cop who fired his rifle into a car full of teens the police came out with two story lines…

There was alcohol (and drugs) at the party – That one was blown up by the fact that neither Edwards, or the three other passengers in the car had any traces of alcohol or drugs in their system.

That the car the boys were in was aggressively headed towards the police – Blown up by cell phone video of the incident that the teens were  leaving the party, and driving away from police.

Now…Further evidence that the Party was a well managed, parent monitored affair, where there was nothing illegal going on.

Nobody Was Drinking At The Party Where Police Killed Jordan Edwards

A new report reveals that officers didn’t find any contraband before one of them fatally shot the 15-year-old.

There was never a reason for Jordan Edwards to be fatally shot by a police officer ― and a new report reveals that there was never even a reason for authorities to be at the party the teen was attending.

No teens were drinking or doing illicit drugs at a house party in suburban Dallas where Edwards, 15, was killed on April 29, a law enforcement official told the Dallas Morning News this week.

A newly released autopsy report also reveals that Edwards wasn’t under the influence when officer Roy Oliver shot him. The officer was responding to a reports that teens had been drinking at a party.

Oliver, 37, was fired and then charged with murder within a week of the shooting.

Initially, Balch Springs Police Chief Jonathan Haber said Oliver opened fire on the vehicle Edwards was sitting in because the driver was reversing aggressively toward him. Haber changed his tune after video evidence showed the car driving away from officers.

Oliver allegedly fired his rifle into the vehicle, striking Edwards once in the head. Edwards’ two brothers and two of his friends were in the car with him.

An unidentified law enforcement official told the Dallas Morning News that Oliver and another officer were inside the party just before the fatal encounter, and saw kids carrying energy drinks and sodas. They didn’t find any evidence of underage consumption, except for an empty beer bottle in a kitchen trash can.

“That was a condition of them attending the party,” Lee Merritt, the family’s attorney, told the paper. “If they saw anyone drinking, they had to leave.”

St Louis Police Shooting…Police Version Falls Apart

Somebody lied. St Louis Police also claimed to have found drugs and 4 guns in the apartment…

Makes you wonder if all that was planted, too.

Mansur Ball-Bey

 

St Louis teenager killed by police was shot in the back, autopsy finds

A black 18-year-old killed by police in St Louis earlier this week was shot in the back, authorities said on Friday, adding weight to protests that have challenged the official account of his death.

A preliminary autopsy by the city medical examiner determined that Mansur Ball-Bey “sustained a single fatal gunshot wound to his back”, according to a statement released by the St Louis metropolitan police department.

Police chief Sam Dotson acknowledged to the St Louis Post-Dispatch, which first reported the autopsy finding earlier on Friday, that it may mean Ball-Bey was shot while running away. He said, however, “I just don’t know yet.” The shooting is being investigated by the department itself.

Renewed protests broke out in St Louis on Wednesday evening after Ball-Bey was killed as officers executed a search warrant at his aunt’s home that morning. Police deployed teargas and smoke canisters to sweep demonstrators from the streets and nine people were arrested, as some threw rocks and bottles at police lines.

Police swiftly said Ball-Bey “turned and pointed a gun” at officers after fleeing the home raid through the back door with another teenager. “Fearing for their safety, two officers fired their weapons,” they said on Wednesday. Some witnesses have insisted, however, that the 18-year-old was not carrying a weapon and was shot as he ran away.

Two white male police officers shot at Ball-Bey, police said. The pair, 33 and 29, have both worked at the department for seven years. Their names have not been released and it is not clear which officer’s shot struck Ball-Bey. The officers have been placed on leave.

The shooting took place about nine miles south-west from where Michael Brown, an unarmed black 18-year-old, was shot dead in August last year by a white police officer in the St Louis suburb of Ferguson. Ball-Bey’s death also fell on the anniversary of the fatal police shooting of Kajieme Powell, a black 25-year-old who had a knife, nine miles to the east.
