Here's something you don't see very often
A Houston police officer has been convicted of negligent homicide for shooting an unarmed 14-year old boy in the head. Sentencing comes today, and Houston community leaders are waiting to find out whether the officer gets probation or prison time. Either way, it's rare for an indictment to occur in such a tragic case, much less a conviction. LULAC's Johnny Mata's comments were spot on: "There should be no jubilation in our community when an officer is convicted in such a horrific incident. There should just be satisfaction that justice has been served."
