Black man's killing by police shakes La. town
Too early to tell. But then again this is Louisiana and these are cops. But whatever happens the odds don't look good for the dead man. Just sayin'. Slap on the wrists. Don't do it again. 3-6 months without pay. 2 year suspension. Any of these would seem to be almost protocol in the North with cops who **** up and it wouldn't even be remotely shocking if it happened in the South. Specially in the South. It seems like rarely do cops who kill civilians without any kind of criminal actually end up in jail. I mean I could be wrong and I probably am but I've heard very few(none actually) stories of cops in general population.For 73 years before his killing by a white police officer, Bernard Monroe led a life in this northern Louisiana town as peaceful as they come — five kids with his wife of five decades, all raised in the same house, supported by the same job.
The black man's shooting death is attracting far more attention than he ever did, raising racial tensions between the black community and Homer's police department
