“The teen who was shot and killed by a Little Rock police officer has been named.
Police say the teen is Bobby Moore, Jr., 15, of Little Rock.
According to the police report, Officer Josh Hastings reported to Shadow Lake Apartments about a suspicious person. When he got there, he says he heard glass breaking and cars being broken into.
He says in the police report he saw three suspects get into a vehicle and speed towards him. He was trying to get out of the way of the car and, fearing for his life, fired into the vehicle, striking the driver, Moore.
“It’s unfortunate…we have no other choice but to rely on what that officer felt at that time. Each circumstance may be different…He felt that he needed to use that force necessary to stop that car from running him down,” said Sgt. Cassandra Davis of the Little Rock Police Department.”
Affirming yet again that cops can play God, taking life if they so choose.
