Louisiana State Police release all footage related to Ronald Greene's violent arrest

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

But body camera footage released by Louisiana authorities after campaigning by Greene's family shows him beaten while shackled. His system also contained high levels of cocaine and alcohol, as well as fractures of the sternum and rupture of the aorta. You can hear him talking to a fellow officer at. The Troopers initially told his family that he had died in a shock after hitting a tree.

But the body-camera (body-cam) footage acquired by Associated Press and released by authorities late on May 22 shows a horrific scuffle.

At one point in a new 30-minute video, Greene can be seen struggling to prop himself up on his side.

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

The secret extended to autopsy, but pathologists said it was hampered by state police not providing even the most routine documents related to Green's arrest, such as police reports, clash details, and emergency medical records. Lay on your belly!

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

York then kneels on Greene's back and tells him again, "You better lay on your f-- belly like I told you to!" He died in an ambulance on the way to a hospital, police said. "You see Greene drawing his legs up, and that may be because he can't freaking breathe".

Police-involved deaths have received intense scrutiny since the death a year ago of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

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

Israeli troops mass at Gaza border amid rocket fire
At least two USA airlines cancelled flights from the United States to Tel Aviv on Wednesday and Thursday. It appeared to be the first time Israel had used Ramon as a wartime alternative to Ben Gurion.

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.

While the autopsy on Greene listed his cause of death as "cocaine induced agitated delirium complicated by motor vehicle collision, physical struggle, inflicted head injury and restraint", it did not specify the manner of death - a highly unusual move that did not make it clear whether Greene's death could be deemed a homicide, an accident or undetermined. The lawsuit alleged officers "used lethal force" against him.

"I'm your brother! I'm scared! Oh, Lord!" Greene screams out.

At some point, after medical assistance arrives, paramedics hear "he doesn't get enough air" and appear to have his blood oxygen level set to 86. Footage of this is not in any of the videos posted by the AP.

Greene is then left moaning, facedown, for more than nine minutes while officers wipe blood from their hands.

The newly-released bodycam footage shows a high-speed chase and Louisiana state troopers punching motorist Ronald Greene when he was already in handcuffs.

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. As I've said before, I found the full video of Mr. Greene's arrest, which I reviewed previous 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. "They deliberately blocked the facts of this case and made it true".
