I really try to NOT post these topics because there is a fire in me that boils so bad that I could say some unimaginable things. I will stated that i believe the officer should be fired! This was very unnecessary and and though Jordan’s death has been ruled a homicide it does not mean that criminal charges will be filed.. This was a child! A human, no reason. No reason...
Read the Edwards family’s full statement below:
" We would first like to thank everyone for their kind words, thoughts, prayers, and condolences as we mourn the tremendous loss our family and community has suffered. We know that so many of you share in our loss. At this time, we ask that you please be respectful of our family, and allow us the opportunity and space to grieve. This entire ordeal has been inescapable. Jordan was a loving child, with a humble and sharing spirit. The bond that he shared with his family, particularly his siblings, was indescribable. Not only have Jordan’s brothers lost their best friend; they witnessed firsthand his violent, senseless murder. Their young lives will forever be altered. No one, let alone young children, should witness such horrific, explainable violence. While our family attempts to cope with our loss, we ask that at this time the community please refrain from protests and marches in Jordan’s and our family’s name, as we prepare for his funeral. We do not support nor do we condone any violence or threats made against the Balch Springs Police Department or any other law enforcement agencies.
What we desire, only second to having our beloved Jordan back, is JUSTICE FOR JORDAN.
With All of Our Love,
The Edwards Family"
