The family of the man who allegedly died in the car crash watched in horror as the cops killed him in custody for several minutes
The graphic video remains closed to public viewing due to the light in which the police officers are presented. The family said they watched a classified video showing the torture and execution of their relative.
“Damning footage that shows troopers choking and beating the man, repeatedly jolting him with stun guns and dragging him face-down across the pavement,” The Associated Press reports.
The incident took place last May. Ronald Greene allegedly died in a car accident, officials said, but a short recording of a conversation with a former Louisiana police officer Chris Hollingsworth with a dispatcher, in which a cop brags about having almost killed a Black Man, has leaked online.
"And I beat the ever-living fuck out of him," Hollingsworth said. "And then he went limp."
According to a statement from the injured party's lawyer, the recording will now force the authorities to launch a federal investigation.
“This family has been lied to the entire time about what happened,” said civil rights attorney Lee Merritt, who also viewed the footage. “The video was very difficult to watch. It’s one of those videos like George Floyd and even Ahmaud Arbery where it’s just so graphic.”
