Family to release autopsy of Black man killed by cop, says lawyer

The attorney for the family of 22 year old Joshua Feast, a young, Black man who was fatally shot last week by a police officer said on Tuesday that the family is planning to release results of an independent autopsy in the death. Ben Crump, a civil rights attorney said that the autopsy results will be released Wednesday. The police have been urged to release body camera footage from the incident.

Crump said the video should be shown to the family immediately. "If the video exonerated Officer Jose Santos, don't you believe we would have seen that video by now?" Crump said. He has a point. Any body cam/squad car video in any case involving a police shooting and death should immediately be available to the family of the dead. How is this not a reality? Does the family not have a right to see the events that occurred leading up to the death? In any case this would either show the family that the cop had just cause to shoot their family member or that the cop did not and should be held accountable. The fact that withholding this video completely supports a lack of accountability for either side is frustrating to all.

I thought for sure this time it would be a story of one of the plethora of non-black people killed by police. I see we still only hear about it when sensationalist media tries to get those ad views on the sanity of racists, who are trying to frame everything as racist.
