Former Memphis police officer Alex Beard was speeding to a call with no siren when he rammed into a car, killing 13-year-old Mackala Ross and her mother, Delores Epps, age 53. Mackala’s father, Michael Ross, was severely injured, but survived the crash.
This week the former officer was offered a plea deal by prosecutors: six months in jail. Mr. Ross said the sentence was like a “slap in my face.”
The prosecutor said “this was the best that could be done.” Hmm.
