VIDEO: No Indictment for Texas Officer in Fatal Shooting at Dealership

A Tarrant County, TX, grand jury declined to indict a former Arlington, TX, police officer accused of fatally shooting a 19-year-old at a car dealership in 2015, reports KDFW.

Former Arlington Officer Brad Miller, 49, was accused of following Christian Taylor, 19, into the dealership where he shot him four times as the teen rushed toward him.

Before the confrontation, video from the Arlington dealership showed Taylor acting erratically, jumping on cars, and later busting through the gate into the parking lot. An autopsy showed Taylor had drugs in his system at the time of the shooting.

Miller was fired by Arlington Police Chief Will Johnson days after the shooting.

Hmmm..

Sounds more like the Chief(?) should have been the one fired. Hope Officer Miller makes enough from his lawsuit for being fired, which I hope he files, to enjoy life. As for the lowlife chief, hope he ends up jobless. Blues, Stay Safe.

I remember reading about this gutless chief of police firing Officer Miller. Makes me glad I don't have to deal with those kind of candy-assed leaders any more. Everything the suspect did led to his death, yet the APD chief, in a fit of fear of the BLM movement and political correctness, terminated and likely ruined the career of an officer.

Like [email protected], I hope the City winds up paying Miller so much that he can take retirement and go do everything he's ever wanted to do. The chief needs to go get a job doing something that doesn't require him to ever have to have someone's six.

Go get em officer, hit that city and that chief personally with court action. These pols need to realize that they can not just dump LEOs and walk away hoping that no heat gets to them. The Chief was wrong and the city was wrong, can't believe that a "policy" would prohibit the officer shooting to protect himself from a now PROVEN drug crazied nut.

What's funny is that Miller was a Rookie, he was hired at around 48.
