The news is out: [TEMPLE HILLS, Md. (AP) — A Maryland police officer who fatally shot a handcuffed man in the front seat of a police cruiser will face a murder charge, the police chief said Tuesday.
Prince George’s County Police Chief Hank Stawinski said during a news conference that he asked his special investigations response team to file multiple charges, including a second-degree murder count, against Cpl. Michael Owen, Jr., a 10-year veteran of the force.
Owen was also charged with voluntary and involuntary manslaughter, first-degree assault and use of a firearm in the commission of a crime of violence, according to a news release. He was arrested on Tuesday, department spokeswoman Jennifer Donelan said.
The victim was identified as William Howard Green, 43, of Washington, D.C. Authorities did not reveal Green’s race, citing department policy.]
Charges mean nothing, let’s wait and see how much probation he will get. Please note how only black cops who murder innocent people are indicted.
