    Texas Police Officers Used N-Word After Shooting Jordan Edwards, Family Says

    Texas Police Officers Used N-Word After Shooting Jordan Edwards, Family Says
    BY JULIANA ROSE PIGNATARO @JULIE_PIGNATARO ON 05/18/17 AT 4:26 PM

     

    The family of 15-year-old Jordan Edwards, who was shot and killed by a Texas police officer after leaving a party in April, spoke out Thursday for the first time following his death. The Edwards family told CBS News in an interview that the police officers at the scene used the n-word shortly after shooting Jordan.

    Jordan was sitting in the front seat of a car leaving a party in a Dallas suburb April 29 when he was shot in the head by officer Roy Oliver. The Balch Springs Police Department originally said the car was moving toward officers in an “aggressive manner,” a story that was contradicted by video from the scene. The footage that emerged afterward showed that the car was moving away from the officers.

    The Dallas County Medical examiner said Jordan’s death was a homicide resulting from a rifle wound to the head.

    1. I imagine they'll use it again after they walk away scot-free.
