You have a good point and I hope the PD will soon release the bodycam footage that will resolve the question. Until then, people are going to believe the worst based on the footage that has been released. If the missing footage shows something favorable to the cops, it is in the best interest of the PD to release it ASAP.The question I have about the incident is what caused them to take him down in the first place??
He might have flipped out while being put in the cruiser, a guy that big can be a problem even if cuffed.
I make no judgment in either direction without all the facts, and they are not present yet.
Firing the cops without a hearing was a political appeasement move to calm the natives, which it did not.
How many turds showed their gang signs while the places burned behind them???
I am glad I am not on the force here anymore, way to much BS.
