An Indianapolis Metropolitan Police officer who uttered a tasteless “joke” over the body of Dreasjon “Sean” Reed, after he was fatally shot by authorities during a May 6 car chase, was recently hit with disciplinary action.
Reed, 21, streamed the last moments of his life during a Facebook live session, where the cop can be heard saying, “Looks like it’s going to be a closed casket, homie,” moments after officers fired the fatal shots.
Reed’s death was particularly striking as it came about the same week the viral footage of Ahmaud Arbery’s shooting death in Brunswick, Georgia was revealed.
Reed was reportedly involved in a high-speed chase with officers, which ended in a foot chase.
