Protests call for justice after fatal police shooting in St Paul. "She expressed concerns that the footage released Tuesday may be edited or manipulated."

"Enough is enough. " “As activists, we have a right to stand for justice, we have a right to demand accountability, we have a right to go beyond a splice of body camera footage and demanding a full accounting of what happened to Ronald Davis,”

It is to bad that dude is dead but he asked for it. That was a straight up good shoot. The guy could have easily killed the cop had he not been put down.

Unless the police edited the video to put a knife in the guys hand and made him attack the officer, no amount of video before or after would be relevant to the shooting itself.

Tragic for sure -but for the officer, IMO.
