Ronald Greene's Murder by Louisiana Police: "It Literally Was Torture"

Share

On May 10, 2019, Louisiana State Trooper Dakota DeMoss and Master Trooper Chris Hollingsworth attempted to pull over Ronald Greene for an unspecified traffic violation that escalated into a pursuit.

On Friday, after refusing to explain Green's death for two years and increasing public pressure, state police showed all body camera footage related to Green's arrest, despite ongoing investigations. released.

But body-cam and dash-cam video obtained by the Associated Press, as well as additional video later released by the state, tells a different story. "There was no regard for humanity".

He was also dragged across the ground by shackled feet, and stunned with tasers as he cried, "I'm scared".

"The trooper's wrong and what he did is excessive", said Charles Key, a use-of-force expert and former Baltimore police lieutenant.

"Greene was taken into custody after resisting arrest and a struggle with Troopers", the report said.

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

"The officers involved in these investigations will be given due process", said Davis.

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. One of the officers tells him, "Yeah, yeah, that s-- hurts, doesn't it?"

York was suspended for 50 hours without pay for kicking and dragging Greene during the arrest.

"OK! Oh, Lord Jesus".

Greene the screams out: "OK!" "OK, OK. Lord Jesus! Okay, I'm sorry. I'm sorry". Footage of this is not in any of the videos posted by the AP.

"If they sprayed him with pepper at that point, that's overkill", Key said. "There has to be some threat".

A SUPERVISOR praised state troopers who tasered a black man and left him facedown for nine minutes before he died, new video has revealed. A preliminary investigative report later announced that he died after resisting and struggling with law enforcement. They were not authorized to discuss the investigation and spoke on the condition of anonymity.

"Choked him and everything else trying to get him under control", Hollingsworth was heard saying on a separate recording. Yet nobody appears to be giving Greene oxygen.

However, AP has already obtained those materials, and this week an unpublished body showing a soldier in a green vehicle on the outskirts of Monroe, Louisiana, repeatedly rocking a 49-year-old unarmed man with a stun gun after a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

Gov. John Bel Edwards released the following statement today about Louisiana State Police making public video of the arrest of Ronald Greene, which occurred in May of 2019.

One of three troopers named in the family's suit was suspended but returned to duty; another died in a vehicle crash just hours, the AP said, after he was told he was being fired in connection with the Greene case; and a third was arrested in February in a separate case involving excessive force. 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.

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". "Let me see your f*****g hands m****rf****r".
