Texas Cop Killed Jordan Edwards Because of PTSD from War, Cop’s Mother Claims

Friday, May 5th, 2017

The family of the Texas cop fired after shooting an unarmed 15-year-old honor student is blaming the tragic death on the cop’s post-traumatic stress disorder from serving two tours in the Iraq war.
Statements about his mental health possibly reveals clues about his intended defense if former Balch Springs police officer Roy Oliver ever gets criminally charged.
His mother, Linda Oliver, says her son is an honorable family man who would never have endangered Jordan Edwards because her son has two toddlers of his own.

Texas Cop Kills Unarmed 15-Year-Boy in Questionable Shooting

Monday, May 1st, 2017

A Texas cop shot and killed a 15-year-old boy named Jordan Edwards Saturday night, claiming the boy was inside a car that was driving in an “aggressive manner” towards another officer.
But that’s the same old excuse police always use when they shoot into moving cars; an overused cop cliche that has been proven false many times by video evidence.
And it will likely be proven false here once the Balch Springs Police Department release body and dash cam videos from the incident that took place around 11 p.m. in a suburb outside Dallas.
