Leaked video shows Louisiana state troopers killing man in custody

He died in an ambulance on the way to a hospital, police said.

Initial claims by Louisiana authorities that a Black man stopped after a high-speed chase had died of crash-related injuries were undercut this week by newly released video showing police Tasing, dragging, choking and beating the man. Green died on his way to the hospital, but police initially told his family that he had died by hitting a auto against a tree during the chase.

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

Only later did Louisiana state police acknowledge that they had used force during the arrest, which they said was justified. 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. Greene is also dragged at one point in the video. "While the federal and state criminal investigations into this matter are ongoing, Col. Davis continues to work to improve the department so all Louisianans can have confidence in those who swore an oath to protect and serve them".

"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!"

"Force expert and former Baltimore police lieutenant Charles Key said", The soldier's mistakes and what he did are overkill. "You understand" to which Greene replies: "Yes, sir".

Police-involved deaths have received intense scrutiny since the death a year ago of George Floyd in Minneapolis. "But we can not comment on any conduct of the officers involved, and we can not offer specifics of the investigation".

Fauci: 'Unlikely' US will see COVID-19 surge in fall, winter
Anthony Fauci suggested that the United States has a far greater number of coronavirus deaths than the officially reported figures.

Of the troopers involved, DaKota DeMoss has been notified that the department intends to fire him and he remains on leave pending another excessive use of force case, police said. An autopsy report obtained by CNN was uncertain about the cause of death, but said lacerations of Greene's head were "most consistent with multiple impacts from a blunt object".

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. "I'm sorry. I'm scared".

Master Trooper Chris Hollingsworth was also notified of the intent to dismiss him, and he died hours later in a fatal vehicle crash, police said. "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 new video, recorded on Lt. John Clary's body camera, remained under wraps for months even within State Police but was recently turned over to the FBI as part of its investigation, according to three law enforcement officials.

However, AP has already obtained those materials, and this week an unpublished body showing a soldier in a green auto on the outskirts of Monroe, Louisiana, repeatedly rocking a 49-year-old unarmed man with a stun gun after a high-speed chase.

Andrew Scott, a former police chief in Boca Raton, Florida, who testifies as an expert in the use of force, said Green's case is an example of "obstruction is the Achilles heel of law enforcement".
