Recently an officer involved shooting has resulted in an upcoming grand jury inquiry. A deputy with the East Feliciana Sheriff's Office respond to a call around midnight on May 21 where a Mississippi man was killed. Louisiana State Police said that the man, who was already out on bail from a Saint John the Parish incident where he pointed a gun at deputies there, pointed a gun at the deputy in East Feliciana.
Despite being cleared by the agency and the Louisiana State Police the deputy, who is back at work, will be brought in front of the grand jury.
Every lethal use of force by a police is a criminal inquiry. ALL law enforcement officers should have a plan for legal protection, an insurance plan or a savings plan to for dedicated monies to utilize during a criminal inquiry.
