Last month we were all devastated to hear about the killing of 15-year-old #JordanEdwards. The unarmed teen was fatally shot in the head by a Texas police officer while riding in a vehicle as he left a party.

Recently, former NBA superstar #KobeBryant showed major love to #KevonEdwards, Jordan Edwards’ older brother, for his 17th birthday.

According to TMZ, to help Kevon celebrate his birthday, Bryant sent over an autographed jersey and two pairs of his of his Mamba’s signature shoe. On the jersey, Bryant wrote, “To Kevon, Do epic things! God bless. Much love!” _____________________________________

Kevon was in the vehicle with his brother the day he was killed by #RoyOliver.

Day 4-Runnin When the worlds against you I'll hold onto you for as long as I can. #jordanedwards

As a black mother, I feel the murder of these black children a little more deeply, a little more heavily, than the rest of my black kinfolk who aren't mothers. Im tired of posting about police killing our black babies. I'm exhausted of writing captions for black children who will never drive their first car, go to prom, sign their first housing lease & make a change in the world. Our black babies are not being given the chance to become us. They're wiping out the next generation of black excellence, problackness, BLM. "Ain't no black power if your baby's killed by a coward." - K Dot. It's hard for me to post about this bc it emotionally gets in the way of my mothering, so this will be my only post regarding 15y/o Edwards. Justice for #JordanEdwards.

when i posted the previous pic of #jordanedwards it was mainly in response to when ppl say wellllll maybe hE waS a tHreat orr probaBly a jUnvinle or wHatever. no, even if he "was a good kid" it didnt save him from the officer. even if he "stayed in school and got good grades" his blackness would be the first thing seen by a cop. regardless of if he was a good kid or a bad kid he was a kid who should be alive rn. #blacklivesmatter

The fired Balch Springs, Texas, police officer who shot and killed Jordan Edwards, a black teen who was leaving a party earlier this year, was indicted on a murder charge Monday by a Dallas County grand jury.

According to the Dallas Morning News, 37-year-old Roy Oliver was also indicted on four counts of aggravated assault for each of the teens who were in the car with Jordan at the time the 15-year-old was fatally shot.

Oliver fired his rifle into the car packed with teens who were leaving the party on April 29. Balch Springs Police Chief Jonathan Haber originally reported that the car was driving aggressively and backing up toward officers, but he later amended his statement, acknowledging that the car was driving away at the time Oliver shot into the vehicle.

Incredible, isn't it? Let's see what happens.
By the way, it was not the first time when Oliver pointed his gun at people without appropriate reason. If this cop was fired for that earlier episode before, Jordan Edwards could have been alive.
It means that all cops who do their job badly should be fired immediately. Many of those cops who killed unarmed people have history of complaints.

‪BREAKING: Officer Roy Oliver was just charged with the murder of #JordanEdwards.‬ ‪Now he must be convicted. ‬The evidence is overwhelming.

Anytime I feel like complaining, which is every once in awhile, I remember how I've been blessed with these two angels in my life. May everyone see them as I do. RIP #jordanedwards

@Regrann from @mothership_lady - See the difference? Same media outlet #dailymail but 2 different headlines for 2 different skin tones. White cop that killed #jordanedwards is identified as a "police officer". Black muslim cop that killed a white lady is identified as "killer Somali -American cop.." #staywoke - #regrann

#RoyOliver, 37, fired a rifle into a car that was driving away from a party in the #Dallas suburb of #BalchSprings in April, killing #JordanEdwards, 15.

His lawyer has not commented. No date has been set for the trial.

The #policeman was sacked a few days later for #policyviolations.

The death occurred when police responded to reports of underage drinking at a #houseparty.

Officers were inside the home trying to find the owner when they heard outside what they believed to be gunshots. Roy Oliver fired into a car full of teenagers as they left the party.

Police had initially said the vehicle reversed "aggressively" towards the officer, but footage discredited the claim, showing the car driving forward, away from him.

He was also #charged with four counts of #aggravatedassault with a deadly weapon by a public official, in relation to the other four #teenagers, including two of the victim's #brothers, who were in the car. "It is important to let our #community know that #justice is proceeding effectively and thoroughly at the Dallas County DA's office," Faith Johnson, the county's district attorney, said in a statement.

The teenager was described by his coach as "a checklist of everything you would want in a player, a son, a teammate, a friend". Roy Oliver faces five to #99years in prison on the murder charge, the Dallas Observer reports.

If convicted, he would be the first police officer convicted of murder in Dallas county since 1973, the report adds. He is currently free on bail.

Lee Merritt, a lawyer for the Edwards family, said on Twitter: "We remain cautious. A murder indictment for Roy Oliver is appropriate but the fact is it's been [more than] 40 years since a cop was convicted in [Texas]." #foodforthought #rbg #problack #blackisbeautiful #blackexcellence #blackmenrock #blackwomenrock #blackgirlsrock #blackboyjoy
