Police they police released a video yesterday of a traffic stop with the immunity he says he treated unfairly because of his race and then at 9 o'clock. We'll talk to the superintendent Louisiana state police colonel Mike Edmondson and I would advise you. You'll watch some of that video on -- website when you know if you think it shows anything Tommy Tucker back in a flash and a VW iconic clock Terrell and be completely impartial here. As we talked about this incident that happened and the state police released video yes I mean. 28 of thirty minutes because they said they -- things out recording. For the last two minutes is that it. You know -- scholarship in samarra smaller you know and it just in attribution to mark Allen in his. Is a man that was pulled over he says state troopers optima during a traffic stop in Lower Ninth Ward. You saw the video that's also did it that. Completely capture everything that happened. That's not that's not the total video that is is that -- this is very very incriminating. So if I was officer and I had to come a -- I'd probably do the same thing. -- there's no audio because they they said the officer was wearing -- Mike. Take -- back to the beginning what happened when did this happen and and how did you get involved in dollars. It sold. The police. Had a a role -- it wasn't a checkpoint into the role black -- -- they already had somebody. I was looking for somebody knows something happened that I use is that you conceded difference rural road trip when his home tonight in this -- black justice. So you you just saw a bunch of vehicles and lights and so forth you guys are so at least it. Yes he's like five or six of sort of like in coming assisting go to mr. there are just -- for an awful performance -- -- So unlike you doesn't make sense to go on history I want to the next be turned around and went back of the street. Before I knew it all of the troop was -- -- mean. I pored over. And as upload over one officer comes up with a gun. -- -- Canon color I thought it was flat as they -- when I looked at the video -- so -- -- the second office so that's the actual Gunner so that you guys can't seek. Is that then he came up with mostly if you move -- mobile Helio you've been no move. So might the cause all of my hands. My movement at -- And just be clear you were not -- -- trying to avoid anything or are trying to deny him the police sought to you or anything eulogized driving along and you look and you think. I sums gone on here on Johnny and all and only part of this so and I mean by that they they could had a shooting negative this gonna head that you you're just trying to say clear. I'm just I am just trying to stay out of the nights are you pulled over the guns are on you what happens next and that you said the -- move on the -- you know don't -- OK I'm -- movement. So I got my hands up. And he is that the offices in Italy and the video interviews and stuff delight well. He didn't have -- has only to see him but in the video you can actually -- offices has put us on straight which it is hated meant to me engram now. Obama the cola and take it and bring you know we hear this and -- -- and you know. And they pulled me out the cause slam on the ground another officer grabbed my opinion slammed -- hit it to the -- -- was gone you know like I don't know was gone -- -- who's right. -- besides get out of the car show me and nothing else is said by the off. There's also much minute and a it's a lot of those. In those things. Little billion years ago. What I mean in terms of why European soccer will -- it. No re I have no clue I was boost I'd seed they got she debut heads on a car he seriously injured and -- and -- -- On the ground there. So but when he pulled out according slammed into the ground stop -- adults -- noble ups common media. And as a man on the ground a little -- a little bit just -- not have my feet on the ground. And slam hated on the ground you know -- you Seles in the video it. And they lift me up and run to the car. And two offices of standing. In front image is giving me out title. Which you don't run you when you come from him come from plant where you go on our home you just lie televisions come from play like the economy and say something. That I didn't say. It was like if you don't tell us where you're going you're -- -- for hall hollering hall hollering -- I was -- and I'll tell me like I don't know what you're talking about. -- you know you know you've gone agent. And wonder offices -- you even here in the video if you don't Timmy was someone poisoning you in my face. But you can hit it very very very very very very -- you can hear so. He'd take it out against his listen to. I'm and I'm like oh my. I don't call Longo and I don't -- going now. In one officer grabbed me and slams me on the hood of the car. And as he slammed known under the column both of my feet lift up off the ground he can't feel my feet the -- off the ground and I mistakenly kick the other office this offices. Why you can pick up then boredom I feel that ran on my back east and -- need to. The hood of this UV cities -- -- -- should be able to Figo ran him in handcuffs. Now you you didn't you're saying you didn't intentionally kick anybody. No I didn't. By him slamming me onto the hood both Marty came off the ground he stand directly in front and in my league it. So. He walks up to -- you about the go to jail for assault ban on office you know how long you'll be in jail for that. -- -- you just saw this officer grabbed me slamming on the hood. And you tell him I have a choice for something and he did I don't have any control of myself -- have all controlled. So at this point you're under control and just on his state of Monty on the can truly not screaming you're just trying to explain Hillary angry what's happen. I'm scared into it terrify you notice is our -- set out ahead a friend's mother who was killed by police office. Can grows and in I had that -- open a friend who was Cuba police those who that I grew up would include new and we've pretty much a whole lot until the police Q and Joseph Williams. And on a no lose a few days before this incident that killed a guy and you know who is to win them -- and I'm by myself. -- And six offices I'm terrified they have Gaza targets in the crazy day of the and I believe in anything and I say. I'm scared him but I'm really really really terrified. So. So announce -- run out of town here time here -- markets and a at a time commitment but. So at some point they'd -- lead you to the back of the cars that haven't -- Data and into the back of the car. After the incident when you have me up. They pushed me down in front of the truck and hysteria in the one officer kept slamming -- my right foot down just slam of the when I was on my right -- You see it in the video you can really see was gone -- he kept slam them off with -- slam off what I didn't honest stand what was going -- we just kept slam afoot. So instead of him telling me cross -- -- he just kept slamming my foot on the ground just kept slamming him for them.

And you going to Asia. And you'll see me in a few duties. So if officer tells me he's gonna see me in a few days. I don't actually know what that means I have seen some offices that look like not good. You know corrupt -- guys. And and and for all of us that it's you'd had a -- them on anybody so you kind of take that as a threat where you injured and all. Yeah much much older than my knee and elbow was not great though.
