Travis Boys, the suspect accused of killing New Orleans police officer Daryle Holloway, pleaded not guilty Monday (July 6) to a charge of first-degree murder. Orleans Parish prosecutors plan to seek the death penalty in the June 20 shooting death of the 22-year NOPD veteran, reports the Times-Picayune.

Making his second appearance before Criminal District Court Judge Karen Herman since prosecutors filed the indictment on June 29, Boys was dressed in a dark blue bulletproof vest.

Police say Boys somehow smuggled a pistol into the back of Holloway's police vehicle, and, after getting his cuffed hands in front of him, shot the officer in his right side by aiming the firearm through an access window in the cage that separates the driver from the back seat.

Boys was able to escape and remained at large until a policeman spotted him getting onto a public bus the following morning.

He pleads not guilty by reason of being incredibly stupid.

Now the police will have to get more training on dealing with incredibly stupid people.

This is why our system is a joke, plead not guilty? Who else did this? A ghost? another prisneror in the rear seat? Or did the victim officer "attack the poor suspect" and he had to defend himself from the mean killer cops! How assign is this system. We must find a way, even if they plead not guilty, to give them a fair trial, then if they are found guilty, they get one shot at an appeal up to the highest court on a fast track and then if the trail was fair, we kill them asap end of story, a year at the maximum. Slow justice is no justice at all. Where are all the "Black lives matter" folks, oh the Black officer's life doesn't seem to matter that much since he was dressed in blue.

"Black lives matter." "White lives matter." "Cops lives matter." "Animal lives matter." Another officer is dead because some idiot didn't care.. It just makes me think how this possibly could've been avoided with a more thorough pat down (frisk). We never think about the worse until the worse happens. Safety should be the number one thought on LE minds. Some of these criminals have a more hidden agenda attached to a pure hatred for life, self and others. Now him pleading not guilty is his right and the prosecution will just have to do their best to prosecute this fool to the highest extent of the law. If its the death penalty,. so be it! Its what he earned for stealing another man's life. No sympathy here.. I just don't think we should lose focus and get caught up in the foolishness of media hype. The public has a genuine right to protest, regardless as to what is chanted. We must uphold ourselves to a more dignified standard in the public's eye. R.I.P LE Holloway..

When will folks--especially the law enforcement community--wake up? Legalize all drugs and register and regulate all hard core addicts (the vast majority of which are not violent but just want to obtain their drug of choice). Then truly focus your efforts on cleaning every thug like this off our streets. Now that would be true public service! It would also make your work much more effective and probably safer overall.

"Louis", what are you on? Must be some good sh*t. Have you noticed how effective the sexual assault system is working? Or how about the home monitor system for law breakers is really doing well. I got a better idea, how about we put these slime where they belong: in the ground. I know your not a LEO or anything close to being one by your rose colored outlook. wake up! There's always going to be violence where there's drugs. And our "War on Drugs" is the biggest joke among street cops. Blues, Stay safe.
