Police in the US state of Texas have admitted that a video showing an
officer fatally shooting a black 15-year-old shortly after leaving a party
contradicts the department's original account of the incident.

.

Jonathan Haber, Balch Springs police chief, said on Monday that Jordan
Edwards' vehicle was driving away from officers when he was killed on
Saturday night in a suburb of Dallas.

.

That contradicted the account of events provided by the police a day
earlier, which posited that Edwards, who was a popular football player
with high marks in school, was reversing towards the police in an
"aggressive manner".

.

On Monday, however, Haber said he was troubled by what he saw in the video
but wouldn't release details other than to acknowledge he erred in
describing the encounter.

.

An attorney for Edwards' family told the Associated Press news agency that
the shooting brings to mind the high-profile deaths of other black people
after police encounters that have sparked outrage and protest in recent
years. He said that this case stood out for its "sheer recklessness".

.

According to the Guardian newspaper's The Counted database, at least 1,092
people were killed by police in the US in 2016.

.

Of that total, nearly a quarter were African Americans, although the group
only accounts for roughly 12 percent of the total US population.

.

Civil rights campaigners and activists say the disproportionate number of
black Americans killed by police is part of a broader pattern of racial
discrimination in the country's justice system.

.

"Black men are six times as likely to be incarcerated as white men, and
Hispanic men are more than twice as likely to be jailed as non-Hispanic
white men," says a fact sheet published by The Sentencing Project.

.

It added that people of colour make up around 67 percent of the 2.2
million people in the country's prisons and jails.

.

These disparities, particularly the killing of African Americans by
police, has prompted the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement, a
popular civil rights movement aimed at ending police violence and
dismantling structural racism.
