going frame by frame and looking at the white shirt you can clearly see the white shirt changes and a arm goes horizontal just before he is shot. Just my observation...

This is one where if there were shots fired from the victim; The police would release that video as soon as humanly possible


Except it doesn't matter if he shot or not so....

Ok, I'll rephrase too then. The video is released, or not released, based on several factors. That could be a matter of days, could be weeks or months, and in some cases (including those ruled good shoots) over a year.

Bear in mind that the video still shows a member of somebodys family being killed. They tend to have a pretty big say in things, but not the only say.

Regardless of what the video shows; it should be released to a citizen panel to review. LE, has lost credibility by withholding evidence of officer guilt. This could be a small step in law enforcement winning back the trust of the community, it has lost thru lack of transparency.

Then get a panel set up to review shootings. Houston did, so how do you know that panel doesn't already have the video?

Have a link about the citizen panel? If Houston has a citizen review panel, it's a step in the right direction. This is what the article said.




Silva said investigators have collected the surveillance video and that along with the body camera footage will be reviewed as part of the investigation by Houston police and the Harris County District Attorney’s Office. No video will be released while the investigation is being conducted, she said.


I don't think this will satisfy a community already on edge.....

Thanks, that is a step in the right direction that could help in establishing trust in Law enforcement.
Cudos to Mayor Parker for her executive order establishing the panel in 2011.

It does appear that he put his hands up and turned around (and looks like one arm lowered afterwards).

Unfortunately, it's impossible to tell if he had a weapon or did not from that phone camera video of a surveillance video.

It is bizarre that cars are flying by with police presence there. It looks like the officer on the left forgot to put his car in park, even.

In my inexperienced and humble opinion, from the ThinkProgress video posted in your link, it looked to me like there were sparks flying from the man's hand, perhaps a gun being shot, before he put his hands up, at 26-28 seconds into the video.

thinkprogress.org...



I noticed that too looks to be a muzzle flash from the "suspect". Hard to know for sure with such poor video quality and the fact we're watching a very shaky at best mobile video of the footage is not making it any better.

those body can bids may not be released just yet.

Even his friends and witnesses in the video said he pointed the gun! The first guy the cops talks to keeps saying, "man why you have to go out like that?".
