Demonstrations took place just hours after Brown’s family and legal team viewed 20 seconds worth of bodycam footage showing the death of the 42-year-old.
After seeing the allegedly shortened version, Attorney Ben Crump said: “We do not feel that we got transparency, we only saw a snippet of the video where we know that the video started before and after what they showed the family.
“They determined what was perfect – why couldn’t the family see all of the video they only showed one body cam video even though we know there were several bodycam videos,” he fumed.
When asked how many shots were fired, one of the family’s legal team said “we lost count in 20 seconds how many shots.”
The family and protestors demand that video footage should be released. Their wishes may have been answered as a new report states the FBI opens investigation into death of Andrew Brown Jr. as autopsy reveals he was shot five times.
The family watched a 20-second clip of the bodycam footage privately which they described as an “execution.”
“Yesterday, I said I thought he was executed,” Khalil Ferebee, Brown’s son, said. “It’s obvious he was trying to get away. It’s obvious. And they gonna shoot him in the back of the head? Man, that sh** not right. That’s not right at all, man.”
