TX Cop Just Indicted On First Degree Murder For Killing Unarmed Teen

An unarmed Texas teenager was shot and killed, which led a Dallas County grand jury to return a first-degree murder indictment against the police officer who killed him.

Balch Springs cop Roy Oliver shot and killed Jordan Edwards with an AR-15 rifle.

Now he’s facing 99 years in prison.

Oliver was already charged with two counts of aggravated assault, but Dallas County DA Faith Johnson’s office [__just announced new charges this afternoon__](https://www.dallasnews.com/news/courts/2017/06/22/cop-killed-jordan-edwards-faces-new-assault-charges-road-rage-case), while the officer is still out on a $700,000 bond.

“It’s very important to let our community know that justice is proceeding effectively… at the Dallas County DA’s Office,” said Dallas County DA Faith Johnson in a press release embedded below, “This is the very first time we have issued an arrest warrant for a police officer before the case was presented to a grand jury.”

Initially, Balch Springs Police Chief Jonathan Haber defended the officer by falsely advising the public that Edwards was menacing the cop, then fired Oliver two days later *only after* [__viewing the dash cam footage__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/2017/05/01/body-cam-footage-shows-jordan-edwards-shot-killed-car-driving-away-police/) proving that the officer had fired at the vehicle as it sped away.

Then Oliver’s parents [__blamed PTSD for the officer’s murderous use__](https://photographyisnotacrime.com/2017/05/05/texas-cop-killed-jordan-edwards-because-of-ptsd-from-war-cops-mother-claims/) of an official firearm.

Jordan Edwards [__was an above average student__](https://www.dallasnews.com/news/courts/2017/06/22/cop-killed-jordan-edwards-faces-new-assault-charges-road-rage-case), whose only crime was attending a house party when Officer Oliver was called to the scene.

There’s no real answer why Edwards fired at the teenagers because he was responding to a call about drunk people on foot.

No arrests were made by Officer Oliver.

In fact, Edwards’ car was never even stopped by the Balch Springs cop.

Jordan Edwards was riding in the front passenger seat of his 16-year old brother’s car [__when they discovered he’d been hit in the head by a bullet and was already dead__](http://photographyisnotacrime.com/2017/05/01/texas-cop-kills-unarmed-15-year-boy-in-questionable-shooting/) when they arrived at a hospital.

The boys were all part of the same football team and decided to leave the party when Oliver fired the fatal shots, which ironically prompted the teens to seek help from a nearby police cruiser.

Little did they know that police would try to cover up the killing almost immediately.

The video of Oliver’s heinous shooting is still being withheld pending trial.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
