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

"While the federal and state criminal investigations into this matter are ongoing, Col. Davis continues to work to improve the department so all Louisianans can have confidence in those who swore an oath to protect and serve them".

Police strongly recommend that the handcuffed suspect remain in the prone position.

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 officers involved in these investigations will be given due process", said Davis. The alcohol content is 0.106, slightly above the 0.08 level equivalent to drunk driving in Louisiana.

"We were told he died because of a auto crash". An autopsy report obtained by CNN was uncertain about the cause of death, but said lacerations of Greene's head were "most consistent with multiple impacts from a blunt object".

This image from a video from a camera worn by Lieutenant John Clary, Louisiana, shows the trooper and medical personnel alongside Ronald Green on May 10, 2019, outside Monroe, La.

In another video clip, Trooper Kory York grabbed Greene by the leg shackles and dragged him across his abdomen despite the fact that Greene was not resisting. One of the officers tells him, "Yeah, yeah, that s-- hurts, doesn't it?"

"OK! Oh, Lord Jesus". "Yes, yes. Lord Jesus!" "I'm sorry. I'm scared". Officer, I'm scared. I'm your brother. Showed that there is. A use-of-force document not previously made public shows pepper spray was used in the arrest.

"If they sprayed him with pepper at that point, that's overkill", Key said.

Minutes after the Green explosion, he begins to moan and gargle while the two soldiers hold him down.

That officer, Chris HollingsworthIt was also recorded that he admitted that at least three other police officers had detained the green while mercilessly beating the green. They were not allowed to discuss the investigation and spoke on anonymous terms.

"Choked him and everything else trying to get him under control", Hollingsworth was heard saying on a separate recording. But no one seems to be oxygenating the green.

The initial state police report on Greene's death does not mention state troopers using force or an arrest.

Louisiana authorities fought the release of this video for nearly two years, but AP finally got the footage.

Green's mother Mona Hardin said she had initially told her son had been killed in a auto crash.

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.

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.

"The only reason I can guess that this information will not be provided to the medical examiner's office is because they don't want to see it", Scott said. "They intentionally thwarted the facts of this case to be truly revealed".
