Jeremy Mardis’ father had hands up when police shot and killed boy: attorney

Published

on

More information is coming to light about the two Marksville City Marshals who ruthlessly shot to death a 6-year-old boy as he was buckled into the front seat of a vehicle.

Officers Derrick Stafford and Norris Greenhouse, Jr. were arrested and charged with second-degree murder of Jeremy Mardis and second-degree attempted murder of the father, Chris Few. 18 bullets were fired into the vehicle, with five striking Jeremy in the head and torso.

During the announcement, Louisiana State Police Col. Mike Edmonson said, “It is the most disturbing thing I’ve seen, and I’ll leave it at that,” referring to the unreleased body cam footage.

A likely reason that Edmonson decided to “leave it at that,” has been revealed today by the attorney for Chris Few, the father of Mardis.

Few’s attorney, Mark Jeansonne said Monday, that the body camera video shows the father of this 6-year-old autistic boy who was shot to death in his car, had his hands in the air and did not pose a threat.

“This was not a threatening situation for the police,” said Jeansonne after watching the likely gruesome body cam footage.

Every day, new details emerge about the tragedy that paint a horrific picture of these Marksville cops.

On Saturday, the Free Thought Project reported on the brutal and criminal history of officers Stafford and Greenhouse. The duo has been accused of everything from rape to beating handcuffed suspects, yet they were allowed to continue being cops.

A source close to the case told the Free Thought Project that the reason Greenhouse has escaped liability for so many of his previous incidents is because his dad is the DA. We have been able to confirm that Norris Greenhouse Jr.’s father is, indeed, Norris Greenhouse, Civil Assistant District Attorney for Avoyelles Parish, where Marksville is located.

The fault for the death of Jeremy Mardis does not end with Greenhouse and Stafford. Everyone who’s been complicit in allowing these maniacs to keep their badges is culpable of aiding and abetting murderers.

Chuck Todd burns down GOP’s Ron Johnson’s Ukraine excuses: ‘You seem to blame this on everybody but the president’

Published

on

A clearly exasperated Chuck Todd was forced to talk over a loud and filibustering Sen Ron Johnson (R-WI) on Sunday morning for once again pushing Ukraine conspiracies and arguing over whether Donald Trump wanted the president of Ukraine to attack former Vice President Joe Biden on his behalf.

Having let Johnson throw out several scenarios and try and spread the blame around, Todd, finally cut in to say, "You seem to blame this on everybody but the president. It was the president’s actions."

"You’re blaming everybody else for the reason we’re in this situation, other than the president," Todd continued. "Isn’t the president’s own behavior, which raised all of these yellow and red flags, isn’t is that why we’re here?”
