Fired white officer files racial bias lawsuit after killing black man

A white former police officer in Mississippi is suing his old department because — wait for it — he said he was a victim of racial discrimination because he got fired after killing black man Ricky Ball.

The Guardian reported that Canyon Boykin filed a seven-page complaint against the Columbus Police Department, which stated his 14th Amendment rights were violated and that he was fired after the shooting because “he is white and the deceased was black." 

The story of the shooting is already mired in controversy and confusion.

DM (NPC): “what awaits you is far worse than anything I’ve seen”
Player 3: I want to throw an axe at him. *rolls 1*
DM: You hit him directly in the back of the head, he vaporizes.
Player 2: *sitting in disbelief*
Player 1: *stunned for a moment* he was trying to help us!
Player 3: Oops. I meant to scare him into telling us straight. I hate cryptic messages.
(NPC comes back later and thanks player 3 for the axe in the back of the head)
