Louisiana Marshals Indicted in Shooting Death of 6-Year-Old Boy

A Louisiana grand jury indicted two deputy marshals on murder charges Thursday in connection with the shooting death of a 6-year-old autistic boy and the wounding of his father last month.

Norris Greenhouse Jr., 23, and Derrick Stafford, 32, were arrested on second-degree murder charges last month. The indictment handed up by an Avoyelles Parish grand jury charged the men with one count each of second-degree murder and attempted second-degree murder, Fox News reports.

Police say Stafford, a full-time police lieutenant, and Greenhouse, a former police officer, were moonlighting as deputy city marshals in Marksville on the night of Nov. 3 when they fired at least 18 rounds at a car driven by Christopher Few. Few was critically wounded by two gunshots, while his son, Jeremy Mardis, received five gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead at the scene.

About time.

Did I read in another article that one of these 2 has been charged with Rape in the past or maybe some other serious charge?

Percy, you posted the same exact statement on another story. Such a statement, on this site, without clarification, makes you suspect as an anti-police troll. From what's provided in the story, they probably did deserve the indictment. They appear to have failed to do due diligence before opening fire. We don't know. If you want your opinion to be seriously considered on this site, in the future you might expand on your two words and tell us why you feel that way. All good Cops hate bad Cops. All good Cops have sympathy for someone that makes an honest mistake. All good Cops want to know if it was an accident or negligence or a deliberate act. (Even if, and I emphasize "if", you're a troll, we hope you'll keep reading the stories on this site. If you keep an open mind, you'll learn some positive things about us.)

Jim, Well said...but yes, he is a troll. He appears to be very anti-LE and usually provides more lengthy stupid statements. I did, however, have to agree with him on the story of the OKC PD rapist.

Jim,
I think you make very good points...but I have two problems with your arguments.
"All good cops have sympathy for someone who makes an honest mistake". I agree with this statement also, but you need to understand the level of that mistake. I have had employees make honest mistakes, in regards to Life threatening issues...and I understood. But at the end of the day, I had to fire some of these employees...because I could not trust that they could work in a dangerous environment without being a danger to themselves or others. However, very few LEO seem to lose their jobs due to life and death mistakes.

"All good cops hate bad cops"..I think this is a true statement. My issues is when will this "hate" of bad cops, overcome the bias towards the mentality of not breaking the "blue line of silence". The Chicago shooting video, and the issue that officer statement differ from the video, shows the problem. When will the hate for bad cops be able to overcome this Blue Line?
