In Texas, a white police officer from a Dallas suburb was charged Friday with the murder of 15-year-old African-American teenager Jordan Edwards. Roy Oliver surrendered to the Dallas County Sheriff’s Office and was later released on $300,000 bail. If convicted, he faces up to life in prison. Police body cam video shows Oliver fired his assault rifle into a car carrying five black teenagers as they drove away from the officer—contradicting Oliver’s initial account that the children were speeding toward him. Jordan Edwards was struck in the head and died in the hospital. On Saturday, Edwards’s family and friends gathered in Mesquite, Texas, for Jordan’s funeral.
