It turns out there is justice sometimes, particularly when dashcams make it impossible to lie.

You might remember this case from 2014, when Lavar Jones was shot for doing what the officer told him to do. It was South Carolina, so I guess former trooper Sean Groubert figured he could get away with it.

Until he didn't. According to the AP, Groubert pled guilty to assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature in the 2014 shooting of Jones. He faces up to 20 years in prison.

Justice is sweet. More justice, please.
