    MARKSVILLE, La. — After a police body camera captured two deputy city marshals firing on a car and killing a 6-year-old boy, the head of the Louisiana State Police said the video was the most disturbing thing he’s seen.

    Nearly a year later, the public is getting its first look at the graphic footage.

    The state judge presiding over the murder cases against the two deputies allowed reporters to make copies of the tape Wednesday after a hearing where it was formally introduced as evidence.

    Prosecutors and defense attorneys previously described in writing how the footage depicts the shooting, which occurs less than a minute into the video. The rest of the nearly 14 minutes of footage shows the stomach-churning aftermath, as the officer with the body camera checks on the lifeless body of Jeremy Mardis while his critically wounded father, Christopher Few, lies bleeding on the pavement.

    Tragic. The car shouldn't have run. Don't know why shots were fired, but likely non-compliance. Don't know if that was justified. The police displayed terrible marksmanship if 5 shots hit the kid. Their behavior afterwards shows they felt remorse and did not intend to shoot the kid that they didn't know was belted in the back.

    Don't know the law in Louisiana, it's different than most states due to the French influence, but that seems more like manslaughter than murder, and if they overcharge w/o lesser charges they could be aquitted.

    Louisiana is split into two spheres of influence......
    The Northern part of the state....ie. Everything north of Alexandria....Is Protestant, And considered the "Buckle"
    of the Bible Belt.....Where everything south of Alexandria
    is steeped in the Catholic faith.....And both areas reflect their
    beliefs in application of criminal law.....Yes' Louisiana has Napolianic law.....But its mostly in the Southern part of the state....And I know from experience from growing up there...
    That small towns and rural Parishes....Louisiana doesn't have
    counties.....Have their own ways of applying and enforcing the law........
