Murder. That’s the only word I think fits the tragic case of Aaron Hobart. He was murdered by a cop.
I’m grateful details are finally coming out. The boy was not “violent”–just non-cooperative The family didn’t ask for the cops–they asked for a crisis intervention team, as their psychiatrist had told them. The cop was not alone–two others were there. He shot this boy multiple times (and friends of the family say they shot him in the back).
But we live in an area where cops are untouchable and grand juries are stacked by the DA.
