The city refuses to release the video. Here is a part:
After a routine traffic stop by a University of Cincinnati Police Officer, Sam Dubose ended up dead with his face blown off. The officer was wearing a body camera, but the city refuses to release the video. In the meantime, everybody who sees it is deeply disturbed, including the city wide police chief.
City Manager Harry Black spoke about the unreleased body camera video of the shooting.
“It’s not a good situation,” Black said. “It’s a tragic situation, someone has died that did not necessarily need to die.”
But here’s the thing.
All studies indicate that in nearly 99% of instances of police killing someone, even in the most egregious circumstances, “something appropriate” doesn’t actually happen and officers are let off.
Let’s keep pushing for the release of this video. We must never assume that justice will happen on its own, but must fight for it daily. /source/
You saw that? Cop handcuffed Sam even before shooting. Now how did it go from him putting him into handcuffs to him killing him in self defense? the authorities are afraid of people who demand justice for all the victims of #PoliceBrutality. We gotta be smart and uncompromising. We pay taxes for those bodycams they wear - we got a right to see what they caught.
