    Do Police Officers cross the line when then Shoot and Kill unarmed teenagers and claim Self Defence

     
    I believe that is exactly what happen in NW Houston on November 13, 2013, when an off duty Navasota Police approach a vehicle on a hunch that the teens were doing something suspicious. Rey David Garza approach the vehicle with his gun drawn according to witnesses and grab for the door of the teens car. The two teens inside claimed they thought he was going to robbed them. So Jonathen Santellanna put the car into reverse to get away from the robber. At what time the off duty officer claimed he was pinned between two vehicles and the officer claimed his life was in danger. Jonathen put the vehicle into forward gear and tried to drive away. The officer unloaded a 8 round clip from his service revolver into the car leaving the scene. Two of the round went through the back drivers side door of the vehicle striking the driver Jonathen Santellana in the back of the head and the upper left torso killing him. After a two month investigation by the Harris County Sheriffs Department the officer has not been charged or cleared. But clearly all shots were fired while Jonathen was fleeing. The officers life was never in danger and the officer was not hurt or seriously hurt. He simply went home to his apartment. Leaving the family Joey Santellana and Roxana Harrison seeking Justice for Jonathen. Have law enforcement officer been given a license to commit murder or to protect the public.

    The surviving passenger said she and Jonathen thought they were being robbed and were fleeing when Garza fired the weapon.

    Garza says he was hit by the car. He didn't have injuries requiring medical attention, and that's troubling to the family of the teen.
