I hope the judge doesn't hug this asshole too after giving him a light sentence.  At least we're starting to see actual arrests now.  This story is sickening and is why I keep telling everyone under no circumstances to ever voluntarily call the cops for yourself or someone you care about.  Take your chances with the crackheads.

FORT WORTH, Texas – The police officer accused of fatally shooting a black woman through a window in her home as she played video games with her nephew was free on bond Monday after resigning from the department and being charged with murder.

Aaron Dean, who is white, was arrested Monday evening and freed hours later on $200,000 bond. The charge was filed less than three days after Dean, 34, shot Atatiana Jefferson, 28, while responding to a neighbor's call that her door was open late at night.

A police press conference was scheduled for Tuesday morning and family members planned their own media gathering later in the day.

S. Lee Merritt, lawyer for the Jefferson family, said the family was "relieved" that Dean was charged but added that a "vigorous prosecution and appropriate sentence" would be crucial to ensure that justice is done.

"If you think this is over you have not been paying attention," he said. "Atatiana Jefferson deserved to live in a world where she was safe from brutality playing video games in her home with her nephew. (Her nephew) Zion deserves more too. Let’s change this world into the one he deserves."

In June, the department released footage of officers killing a man who ignored repeated orders to drop his handgun. Of the nine officer-involved shootings this year, five targeted African Americans and six resulted in death, according to department data.

Nearly two-thirds of the city's 1,600 officers are white, 22% are Hispanic, and about 12% are black. The city of almost 900,000 people is about 40% white, 35% Hispanic and 19% black.

Merritt said the Dean should have been fired the night of the shooting to prevent him from resigning.

"The City of Fort Worth has much work to do to reform a brutal culture of policing," Merritt said.

Interim Police Chief Ed Kraus said Dean would have been fired and is considered dishonorably discharged from the department. Kraus said the U.S. Justice Department will examine the case for possible civil rights violations.

Who was Atatiana 'Tay' Jefferson?

Sgt. Chris Daniels said police and Tarrant County prosecutors were "diligently" investigating the incident.

"We understand that this is a tough and tragic event, not only for her family but for the community," Daniels said. "We value the trust that we've had with our community. We will continue to build that trust."

Dean had responded to a non-emergency call to police at 2:23 a.m. Saturday from neighbor James Smith, who told the dispatcher it was "not normal" for his neighbors to have the doors open and lights on at that hour.

Two officers arrived six minutes later. Body camera video released by police shows officers, armed with guns and flashlights, circling the home. An officer stops at a window.

The video ends with an officer shouting, "Put your hands up, show me your hands" before the sound of one gunshot. Jefferson was killed with a bullet fired through her bedroom window.

Police have confirmed what the video appeared to show – that the officer never identified himself as police. He also confirmed that Jefferson's nephew was in the room.

Family members expressed shock and sadness over the shooting. Lapaca Jefferson, 57, was in Houston attending an anti-violence meetup over the weekend when he received news that his niece had been killed by a police officer in her own home.

“The Jefferson family’s dreams have been shattered,” he said. “It’s a great shock.”
Lapaca Jefferson said Atatiana was a loving, giving person who wanted to become a doctor to help people. “She was the one in her family who could really do good,” he said.

The shooting took place less than two weeks after former Dallas police officer Amber Guyger, who is white, was convicted of murdering Botham Jean, a black man shot in 2018 as he ate ice cream in his home.

So many things in this article will eventually clear the policeman officer. First, it said it was a welfare check. That means the perp was an illegal alien getting welfare off of our tax dollars. It also said she was playing "video games". As we all know, video games is how most serial killers get their start. This was a righteous kill if ever I have seen one. Amirite katook and BT?

Another article mentioned it was "Call of Duty", so that's clearly a cop killer training game.  Pre-emptive strike.
