The 49-year-old Black man was choked and beaten to death by Louisiana State Troopers in May 2019. After the Associated Press released video of the incident, officials with the police department announced they would release all the footage. Phillip Atiba Goff, the CEO of the Center for Policing Equity and a professor at Yale University, joins Yodit to discuss the case.
Goff says if the footage of the case had not been released, the lie told by police would have been the story the public believed. Citing the autopsy that failed to list a manner of death, Goff says the medical examiner’s office was either malicious or incompetent.
