Louisiana cops arrested for killing autistic 6-year-old

Louisiana police have arrested two officers in the shooting death of an autistic 6-year-old boy.

But you know the officers will probably get away with it. All they have to do is claim they were scared, and a jury will give them a pass.

On the other hand, the boy was white, so the cops may indeed go to prison.

Col. Mike Edmonson, in a late night press conference Friday, said the two officers were being booked on charges of second-degree murder and attempted second-degree murder in the Tuesday shooting death of Jeremy Mardis and the wounding of his father, Chris Few, in the central Louisiana town of Marksville.

Speaking of the body camera footage that was recovered from the officers, he said: “It is the most disturbing thing I’ve seen, and I will leave it at that.”
