    Update: Officer Brad Miller terminated from Arlington Police Department following Christian Taylor shooting

    Updated: The officer involved in the fatal shooting of Christian Taylor has been terminated, Arlington Police Chief Will Johnson said Tuesday.

    Johnson cited several examples of poor judgement in the incident as reasons for Officer Brad Miller’s termination. He said he made the decision after receiving a briefing from homicide investigators Tuesday morning and the decision was his alone.

    “This is a extraordinarily difficult case,” Johnson said. “Decisions were made that have catastrophic outcome.”

    Police are conducting an internal investigation in addition to the criminal investigation into the actions of Officer Brad Miller, the trainee who shot Taylor. The criminal investigation will focus on the use of deadly force, and the administrative investigation will determine whether Miller’s actions complied with department policies, police Chief Will Johnson said Saturday.

    I keep hearing a "college football player" was killed, as if he was murdered on his way to class. As opposed to being a deranged lunatic who was vandalizing a business and acting like a nut.

    is this the college student" who drove his car through the window of a car dealership? it seems like there's justification for the shooting, are the po-lice supposed to allow a crazy man to perhaps kill people after he's finished his little games?

    Arlington, Tex., Officer Is Fired in Fatal Shooting of Christian Taylor
    By PATRICK McGEEAUG. 11, 2015

    ARLINGTON, Tex., — A rookie police officer who shot and killed a Texas college football player inside a car dealership in suburban Dallas was fired on Tuesday, the police said.

    Chief Will Johnson of the Arlington police said that the officer, Brad Miller, 49, had been fired for the “inappropriate judgment” in the fatal shooting of Christian Taylor, 19. Chief Johnson said Officer Miller had entered the building without his partner, leading to an “an environment of cascading consequences.”

    At a news conference, Chief Johnson said Tuesday that Mr. Miller made bad decisions in communicating with other officers and initially approaching Mr. Taylor on his own without a plan for arrest. There were other officers on scene, the chief told reporters, including Mr. Miller’s training officer, who tried to use a Taser to subdue the suspect.

    “Based on a preponderance of evidence available to me and facts revealed by the investigative team, I have decided to terminate Officer Miller’s employment with the Arlington Police Department for exercising poor judgment,” Chief Johnson told a news conference.

    The partner is a 19 year veteran. You gotta let the him lead the dance.
