Now It Becomes Just Plain Murder

Dallas police officers who, using a rifle, shot and killed the 15-year old passenger in a moving vehicle said the car was backing up toward the police at high speed. But that was more than 24 hours ago. Now the Police Chief has admitted the car was moving , away from the cops and not in any sort of aggressive manner. The cops had been called to the neighborhood for a complaint about a loud party.

"The statement said officers fired on the car after they heard gunfire from an 'unknown altercation.'"

A random gunshot from somewhere is always perfect justification for shooting at the first thing that moves, no matter what it is.

UPDATE: The Police Chief actually used the workd "misspoke" in his explanation.
