On Nov 08' a 19yr old boy was killed as he was coming off I-20 onto the I-80 off ramp. As he pulled out from the stop sign to cross the intersection he was t-boned by a Brandon City officer driving at over 72mph in a 45 zone, the 19yr old was driving 12mph. The boy died instantly, his car landed 296 feet down the road. It was told to the public the officer was on a burglary call. One week later the boys Tox report was given to the media by the Rankin Sheriff, the case was closed immediately. What the RSO & Brandon Police Dept did not tell the public: THE OFFICER HAD A 16 YR OLD BOY IN HIS FRONT PASSENGER SEAT WITH HIM AT THE TIME OF IMPACT, on this supposed burglary call. This was never mentioned in the media, the Brandon DA did not indict the officer.

The Rankin DA will NEVER INDICT this officer. Look at his homepage & you will see how closely he works with these same officers. Just ask yourself, how many police officers/sheriff deputies has Rankin DA Michael Guest indicted in the past? When it comes to the police, they are above the law. Even when this means they drive reckless speeds endangering the public, or when evidence comes up "missing" while in their possession.

Could you ever imagine your child being killed by an officer of the law, then find out the officer and the police department covered up all the evidence showing and proving the officer was reckless in every way possible? Basically knowing, your child was just in the wrong place at the wrong time and that the officer was at fault? Can you imagine an officer lying to you or not telling you all of the story? It does happen! It will happen again!
