Edwards on the Release of Videos from the Arrest of Ronald Greene

Video of Black man's death in US varies sharply from police account

Greene died before arriving at the hospital.

After Ronald Greene died, Louisiana State Police claimed it was due to an auto accident.

The AP said the video it had obtained shows troopers, all of them white, opening Greene's auto, jolting him with a stun gun as he screams "I'm sorry" and "I'm afraid".

In response to that release, Colonel Lamar Davis, the superintendent of the Louisiana State Police held a late night press conference and said the department is releasing all the police bodycam video to add context to what has already been public.

Body cam image Ronald GreenA brutal video showing him being beaten, kicked, tasted and screaming for mercy at the end of his deadly arrest in Louisiana reveals numerous mysteries surrounding his death. The Associated Press released the body-camera footage of the May 10, 2019, arrest, which happened after Greene led troopers on a high-speed chase that topped 100 miles per hour.

The case is also the subject of a federal civil rights investigation.

At some point in the new 30-minute video, you can see Green struggling to support his side.

"Don't you turn over!"

York then kneels on Greene's back and tells him again, "You better lay on your f***** belly like I told you to! You see Greene drawing his legs up, and that may be because he can't freaking breathe". But he said he'd spoken with Greene's family and offered his condolences: "I can feel their pain and feel it in my heart".

They said it "cannot be stated with certainty" whether many of Greene's injuries - including a fracture of the sternum, or breastbone, and a laceration of his aorta - were attributable to the vehicle crash or the struggle with troopers.

An autopsy showed that Green had alcohol and cocaine in his system, suffered multiple injuries from the crash, as well as injuries from a physical struggle. "These injuries are most consistent with multiple impacts from tiresome objects".

In the latest video, Green has his legs tied, his hands folded behind his back, prone to falling to the ground, and two soldiers floating above him before suddenly yelling. One of the officers tells him, "Yeah, yeah, that s-- hurts, doesn't it?" "I'm sorry. I'm scared. Oh, Lord!" Greene screams out.

A SUPERVISOR praised state troopers who tasered a black man and left him facedown for nine minutes before he died, new video has revealed. The Troopers initially told his family that he had died in a shock after hitting a tree.

A struggle between Greene and law enforcement officers came to light when his in-custody death was subsequently investigated by the Louisiana State Police Criminal Investigations Division, CNN reports.

Louisiana officials had for two years rebuffed repeated calls to release footage and details about what caused Greene's death after the chase, which began over an unspecified traffic violation. As I've said before, I found the full video of Mr. Greene's arrest, which I reviewed past year, to be disturbing and hard to watch.

Of the troopers involved, DaKota DeMoss was notified that the department intends to fire him and remains on leave pending another excessive use of force case, police said.

"The only reason I can guess that this information will not be provided to the medical examiner's office is because they don't want to see it", Scott said.
