One less perp on the streets. How is this a bad thing, let alone a crime?
Look, we’ve been through this before. Same old story: cop shoots good boy who didn’t do nuffin, Blacks go apeshit. Tamir Rice, Philando Castile, Freddie Gray, Micheal Brown, Eric Garner… This happens all the time.
Every time, the cops are cleared and found to have done nothing wrong.
So the law is pretty clear on this phenomenon: cops are allowed to shoot Black people. Period. Time to stop whining and just accept it.
Yet now we have an example of an officer, simply fulfilling his duty to shoot Black people, and who nevertheless gets convicted of having committed some kind of crime.
This is nuts.
A former police officer in Texas has been found guilty of murder in the high-profile shooting death of 15-year-old Jordan Edwards — a rare victory for civil rights activists seeking justice for the dozens of unarmed African American men and boys who have been killed by police officers in recent years.
Why should this hero be punished for keeping America safe?
Cops killing Blacks isn’t “murder.”
It’s their job.
Who the hell is going to want to be a cop now, if they know they’ll just be sent to jail and be considered a murderer just for doing what they’re being paid for?
As Judge Brandon Birmingham read the verdict Tuesday against Roy Oliver, who worked in the Dallas suburb of Balch Springs, sobs came from the gallery of the packed courtroom. The last time an on-duty police officer in Dallas County was convicted of murder was in 1973. Oliver could be sentenced to life in prison.
“I’m just so thankful,” Jordan’s father, Odell Edwards, told reporters. “Thankful, thankful.”
What a dirty Black bastard. He’s happy an honorable White man is being sent to jail, just to fulfill his selfish Black desires for revenge.

And for what? Just because his criminal son got killed in an act of righteous justice?
He’s Black. He probably has, like, dozens more sons all over the place. What’s one less Black son, compared with the precious life of a hero such as Roy Oliver?
Daryl Washington, an attorney representing the family, said the verdict meant more than justice for Jordan.
“It’s about Tamir Rice. It’s about Walter Scott. It’s about Alton Sterling,” he said, naming victims of police shootings in recent years. “It’s about every, every African American, unarmed African American, who has been killed and who has not gotten justice.”
So this ruling is just an act of racial revenge against White people, for daring to maintain public order by culling the population of criminal Blacks.
These people are sick.
Republican Gov. Greg Abbott tweeted a link to a news story about the conviction, saying that Jordan’s “life should never have been lost.”
On the night of April 29, 2017, Oliver fired an MC5 rifle into a Chevrolet Impala carrying Jordan and two of his brothers as it pulled away from a high school house party. Jordan, who was struck in the head, died later at a hospital.
Police initially said the vehicle had backed up toward Oliver “in an aggressive manner,” but body camera video showed the car was moving away from him and his partner. Days after the shooting, Oliver, who had served in the department for six years, was fired.
So the car was escaping from the cops. If they hadn’t opened fire at that moment, they would undoubtedly have gotten away and gone on to commit a drive-by shooting or something.
How many people were saved by Roy Oliver’s selfless act of heroism?
We may never know.
