Cop Who Killed Innocent Man Over Marijuana Now Wants “Reduced Sentence”


NEW ORLEANS — A now-former New Orleans cop has admitted to opening fire on an unarmed citizen and killing him.

That same cop is now asking a judge for a “reduced sentence.”

Officer Colclough shot the man during a “drug raid” on the man’s mother’s house in Gentilly in 2012.

Officer Colclough claimed he didn’t do anything wrong at first.

But he eventually took a plea deal.

So far he has only served two years, and if he gets his way with the judge, he could be back on the streets again very soon; meanwhile a family lost their son forever. describes the incident as follows:

Joshua Colclough, a four-year veteran of the NOPD, fired a single bullet into 20-year-old Wendell Allen’s chest on March 7, 2012, according to an NOPD investigation. Police were at Allen’s home on Prentiss Street in Gentilly, executing a search warrant related to a marijuana investigation

Allen was unarmed, shirtless and wearing jeans and sneakers; five children were in the home.
