After a middle school official reported a man “acting strange” near the school grounds, the “strange” man — Kendole Joseph — ran into a nearby convenience store and hid behind the counter. The two school resource officers were soon joined by twelve(!) Gretna police officers. Some of these 12 officers severely beat Joseph, ultimately ending his life.
The first officers went over the counter to “secure” Joseph. Somehow this involved multiple tasings and a nearly uninterrupted beating.
