Fort Worth Police officer jailed after fatally shooting woman

The white Fort Worth police officer accused of shooting a black woman inside her home over the weekend, killing her, has been jailed on a murder charge. Atatiana Jefferson, 28, was gunned down early Saturday after police were summoned to her Fort Worth home to conduct a welfare check by a neighbor who reported seeing Jefferson’s front door open.

This officer is a fucking retard. Going sneaking around peoples houses without announcing yourself and are surprised when someone investigates with a gun. Psh. She would have been totally justified if she shot and killed that officer.

Glad the officer resigned but he needs to be charged. And convicted.

Tragic. It seems to me that all you need to be a Fuckn cop now days is a pulse and some connections in the department.

Cops should be held to a higher standard than regular Joes, but I think murder is a bit too hefty of a charge here. I can't remember the actual name of the crime, but there is a charge called something like gross negligence resulting in death. This is used when, say, a crane operator fucks up and drops crap on people, killing them. Maybe something like that would be more appropriate? I mean, he didn't wake up one day and think to himself "I'm going to kill someone today". He didn't planon killing anyone... He killed her as a result of gross negligence to his duties, right?

It was a bad shooting, it would have still been a bad shooting had the victim had different skin than she did. Can we stop with the race baiting.

Charges must be bought forward. Crimes have clearly and undoubtedly been committed.

Overzealous murder charge is going to end up getting him let off. I almost wonder if PAs do this on purpose because they know that officers won't be convicted.

this is what should be happening to the officer. he shot her without announcing that he was the police.

When Joe six pack screws up at his job, he just gets fired. When a cop screws up at his job, he may have to go to jail.
