'What is on the video that is so damning?' Andrew Brown Jr. family waiting as body-cam footage redacted; state of emergency declared
John Bacon

The mayor of Elizabeth City declared a state of emergency Monday as authorities in North Carolina worked to redact body-cam footage of the fatal shooting of Andrew Brown Jr. before allowing the Black man's family and lawyers to view it.

The family and its representatives plan on viewing the video at the Pasquotank County Sheriff's Office, lawyers said at a news conference where they urged immediate release of the video.

“City officials realize there may potentially be a period of civil unrest within the city following the public release of that footage,” Mayor Bettie Parker said in the emergency declaration.

Lawyer Harry Daniels said the family was told they could see the video at 11:30 a.m. Monday, only to be told about an hour before that time that the video was being redacted and would not be available until later in the day. County Attorney R. Michael Cox said in a statement that state law allows for blurring of faces to protect an active internal investigation, and "that process takes time."..................................

1. I don't know but,

I wouldn't like being told the video was being redacted. My definition of redact is to hide something.

2. Time for immediate intervention by:

DOJ, FBI, National Guard.....

Judging by the number of shootings since the verdict, there seems to be a "We we'll show you" attitude out there......

Attorney: Black man killed by deputies shot in back of head

ELIZABETH CITY, N.C. (AP) —.........................

Attorney Chantel Cherry-Lassiter watched a 20-second portion of body camera video with the family of Andrew Brown Jr. on Monday. She said Brown did not appear to be a threat to officers as he backed his vehicle out and tried to drive away.
......................


...................

Lassiter, who watched the video multiple times and took notes, said shooting started as soon as the video started. She said she counted as many as eight deputies in the video, some wearing tactical uniforms and some in plainclothes.

“They’re shooting and saying let me see your hands at the same time,” she said.

The family’s lawyers also criticized local authorities for only showing 20 seconds of the video and only showing them footage from a single body camera.
......................

Earlier Monday, a search warrant was released saying deputies obtained the warrant that brought them there after investigators recorded him selling small amounts of cocaine and methamphetamine to an informant. Crump argued the authorities were trying to release negative information about Brown while shielding themselves by holding back the video.


...................... Authorities have released few details.

6. If he was driving towards officers in front of the car

Then the shooting will likely be ruled justified even if he was hit by an officer to the side or behind the car. They will claim it was done because a car can be considered a deadly weapon in some circumstances. Not releasing the video will just raise tensions even higher and increase speculation of a coverup, not smart

9. The reports say he was backing out of the driveway

So he could have been backing towards the officers in reverse when shot in the back of the head. Won’t really know until the public sees all the video. I don’t trust either side to give an accurate account of what they have seen in private.

10. A neighbor who witnessed it said he was driving away.

If a sheriff's deputy had been in front of the vehicle we would have heard that by now.

The rear window of the car was shot out and an emergency dispatch call stated that Brown was shot in the back.
