A former Fort Worth policeman who shot a woman in her own home will certainly be punished Says police chief
According to the latest information in the case of the murder of an innocent black woman from Fort Worth by a police officer, the killer voluntarily resigned and was detained on murder charges.
Last week, Fort Worth Interim Police Chief Ed Kraus spoke at a press conference announcing that due to the resignation of the shooter, it was now possible to reveal the name of the former officer. Aaron Dean arrived that night from a troubled neighbor and sneaked into the territory. While walking around the perimeter, Atatiana Jefferson and her 8-year-old nephew heard a noise outside and, with accordance to the law, a woman took out a gun to protect herself from a possible robber, but Officer Dean shot first and killed the woman.
"It's very emotional because the officers, they try hard every day to make this city better," Kraus said. "...Some of our officers that are out there every weekend and most weeknights, out there trying to build these relationships, I likened it to a bunch of ants building an anthill, and then someone comes with a hose and washes it away and they just have to start from scratch and build over. I think that's gonna be all, thank you," he said.
At the conference, Chief Ed Kraus announced that he regrets the incident and intends to bring the former officer to justice. According to the latest information, the accused was out on bond and is now out of prison awaiting trial. Despite his refusal to testify or answer questions from investigators, the police intend to punish the shooter.
“Had the officer not resigned, I would have fired him for violations of several policies, including our use of force policy, our de-escalation policy and unprofessional conduct. Additionally, the separation paperwork that is sent to the state licensing agency, the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement will reflect that he was dishonorably discharged from employment with the Fort Worth Police Department,” said Ed Kraus.
