Supt. Ronal Serpas “took the blame” Wednesday for the NOPD covering up the shooting of an unarmed teen in the head on Monday.

Armand Bennett, 26, was shot by a New Orleans police officer early Monday, but the NOPD never mentioned the officer-involved shooting in its daily roundup of major police items.

“In this particular case it’s a complete snafu on the part of my team. I take responsibility for it, I apologize for it, and I don’t want it to happen again,” said Serpas.

Cops and wanna be cops shooting unarmed teenagers, it’s happening way to often in our country. And seemingly it’s invariably an African-American teen.
