All there could be children but we know occult and apparently call me to respond. And then yesterday. From yesterday. That -- -- shooting you know group which here. Liberty to ugly your mental decline. On what went out to and he disk. Clear because I wouldn't I'd probably 1015 minutes of achieving. I'm a -- and it can be that it relative job and my access to the scene -- immediate mine there. I am able to watch all the processing of the we're seeing all alone on on the in the body. We're able to look at all the evidence that was -- trail course and -- -- there at the scene and all that it would. Feel to make sure you know. When we hear what he witnesses in the officers. And you know other day. We can see that jives with -- and that was that actually. Any. Point was -- said that the gun was pointed at them. The 45 caliber gun was found next -- well again again it was -- What you've seen and about.

Release of neighbors said the that the -- relationship existed between any officer. Officers rather and they got to get shot because.

You look at his record but not the defining factor in this case it's the evidence that the seat -- the eyewitness. We have people out cry out there that people. -- beating up on her well. Can't work we're trying to get those that -- -- we need to act the most important information there that. -- -- break abort or to distrustful. But is there -- -- -- somebody that information we got. That is why you look at the wiggle out and it was critical having been in the chase so. Com we need to know what happened which our fault we need to.
