This is the full video we received from the police station.
Now I want to show you the second video released.
This is from the perspective of the body camera.
This was taken from a camera worn by one of the other officers.
It\'s not the officer who shot, Officer Vincent.
He doesn\'t have a human camera, but we have this. (

Man: where is your bag?
You got it back from my truck.
M: Are you okay?
M: I\'m fine.
Get some gloves. we have to catch the wound. (END VIDEO CLIP)
Harlow: Obviously, it\'s very disturbing to watch the video. You hear Mr.
Scott moaned at the end as he was dying from the deadly shooting.
Before that, I would like to take you through the schedule, as it is equally important tonight that not only has this video been released, but the Charlotte police department has also issued a lengthy statement.
Here is the point.
First, they said Scott\'s SUV was parked next to the police officer.
There are plainclothes policemen.
The officer said Scott rolled the marijuana up and then saw Scott holding a gun in the car. Then Scott --
The police then left with their marked police vests and equipment.
They said that the police came back to show Scott their identity and issued a clear, loud verbal order saying to put down the gun and put it down.
Then the police said Scott refused to repeat the order to drop the gun.
Then the police in uniform. -
An officer in uniform arrived at the scene and went to assist. [20:05:06]
They went on to say that police officers in uniform tried to break the passenger window of Scott\'s car with batons, and then in a police statement, they said Scott left his car with a gun and backed off despite the officer\'s order to put the gun down.
They say this is the time when Officer Vincent thinks Scott\'s behavior is a threat, that is, when Officer Vinson opened fire on Scott.
This is the timeline of the facts of the case announced tonight.
They went on to say that the officers provided first aid and asked for a doctor, many civilians who witnessed and confirmed that the office issued many orders to Scott to put down the gun.
Police said the lab results of the gun showed Scott\'s DNA and fingerprints.
They also said that the gun they found was indeed loaded.
Our Ed lavadala is live for us tonight in Charlotte.
This is the first time we get a lot of this from the police station.
It\'s not just the video, but also the timeline, which the police department has also published for this very specific event.
Prior to that, a night-after-night protest in Charlotte required the police to remain transparent.
How did the people there react tonight?
Ed Rawanda, cnn correspondent: Well, there\'s been a parade in the city all day asking for a full video, body camera and dashboard camera shot.
This full release has not happened yet, but as described by the chief of police, he believes it is a relevant video image from body cam and dash cam.
They \'ve been marching down the street today asking for the video to be released.
Protesters are also expected to return to the streets of Charlotte tonight.
It has been protesting peacefully for the past few nights, although it has exceeded the curfew ---
Charlotte mayor poppy implemented the plan a few days ago.
But more protests are expected, but this is part of the reason why many protesters are asking for these videos to be released.
Many people start to digest this, start to process and analyze, and accept what they see on these videos.
Harlow: Ed lavadala, can you also talk about why we didn\'t have any audio in the first game? -
No audio for the first 23 seconds of the body camera video perspective.
We know why it is, if it is, or if it does not exist?
Lavadela: From the early signs we got it doesn\'t sound important and we will continue to follow up as well, we have spoken to a spokesperson for the Charlotte city manager who told us, the way these body cameras work is that once the officer is involved, press the button to start recording, about 20-
About the second.
Play the video before the audio starts.
So, according to the spokesperson, that\'s why you didn\'t hear the audio at the beginning of the video tape.
When we first saw these videos, we suspected a lot of people would have questions about it, but that\'s the explanation we \'ve got so far.
We have contacted the public information officer with Charlotte police to have them explain this to make sure it matches what we were told.
We haven\'t heard back from them yet.
Harlow: Ed lavadala was prepared for us tonight in Charlotte.
Thank you so much, ed.
Shortly after we received videos of Keith Scott\'s death, after the videos were made public, some of Scott\'s family members came out with their lawyers to make a statement.
They answered questions from some journalists.
Our Nick Valencia is in Charlotte tonight.
Tonight, not only did the family see the video, but now the whole world has seen it. How did they react?
CNN National Correspondent Nick Valencia: we have now had four nights since Keith Scott was shot, and from the beginning the family has asked for a video of the police shooting.
Their request was answered today.
They said they were grateful for the videos and they were glad they came out.
They want the public to make their own decisions about what they see in the video, even though the police say they are inconclusive and they don\'t show the gun in detail, the family still insisted that Keith Scott was not armed at the time of the shooting.
We heard earlier from Keith Scott\'s brother. in-
By law, he said Keith Scott did not do anything worth dying. (

Ray DOTCH, Keith Lamont scott\'s BROTHER-IN-
Law: home for video release.
Our goal is to get absolutely unfiltered truth from the start, and the only way is for the police to release US--
Released today.
Unfortunately, there are far more questions left to us than our answers. [20:10:03]
For us, it doesn\'t make sense how this event can lead to loss of life.
It just doesn\'t make sense and it\'s not clear in the video posted.
Also, many of you, I am one of them, have requested information about the Sir.
Scott, what kind of person he is.
Is he a good father?
Is he a good husband?
Questions about his character.
Of course he is a great person and of course we love him so much but that shouldn\'t be the problem.
We should not humanize him in order to treat him fairly.
What we know and what you should know is that he is a better American citizen.
This is our position. (END VIDEO CLIP)
Valencia: Charlotte, about an hour ago-
The meckeburg Police Department released a video of the deadly shooting.
They also released a narrative along with three pictures of what they said was a pistol found from Keith Scott.
He was asked at this press conference that the family lawyer was asked how Scott\'s DNA was on the gun and how his fingerprints were on the gun if the family thought he was unarmed.
They said they were digesting the information.
This is the first time they have seen these photos and they will continue to investigate ---Poppy.
Nick Valencia, live for us tonight in Charlotte.
Thanks, Nick.
We have more news about the story and the video that the police have just released. Stay with us. (
Business break)
This is CNN\'s breaking news.
Harlow: We\'re back tonight to update Charlotte.
These videos have now been released and have been released to the public.
This is two videos that were fatally shot Tuesday in Charlotte Keith Scott, North Carolina, with dash camera video and body camera video.
One of the videos I\'m going to show you is the police car dashboard camera installed in the front of the police car. [20:15:06]
Both videos record the moment police shot and killed kith Lamont Scott last Tuesday.
Let\'s watch the video of the dashboard camera first. (

Harlow: Okay.
This is the video of the dash camera.
Now I want to play the second video that Charlotte police just released tonight.
This is a video taken by a response officer wearing a body camera involved in this encounter with Keith Scott.
This is not a video of Officer Vincent, who shot and killed Keith because the officer did not wear a body camera. Let\'s watch. (

Harlow: Let\'s discuss all this with our group.
But let me start with Philip Atiba Gove.
He is a professor of police Justice at John Jay\'s criminal justice College.
Philip, you watched the video.
I would also like to discuss that this is happening in the context of national strained ethnic relations, strained ethnic relations in North Carolina.
I would like to point out that this conversation is a broader conversation about the tension between the police and some Africans
The American community, the police are a factor here, and the police officer who shot at the same time, Officer Vincent, is an African.
Americans, like the murdered Keith Scott, the Charlotte police chief we just heard this afternoon. Your thoughts?
Professor and partner Philip Atiba Gove
Founder of the police Fair Center: Yes, Poppy.
I mean, we all just saw this for the first time and just dealt with it.
I think I have to start by hearing how disturbing someone\'s last breath is and being able to hear his wife defending his life backstage, assuming he has no reason to be shot, because he clearly does not pose a threat to anyone. [20:20:05]
At the same time, I think my heart is sad now because I know that while watching this show,-
Some of these things will be more polarized.
We have that kind of ticking now.
On the police side, they got engaged, they retreated, they were ready, they tried to give clear instructions, but in the video you also saw someone get off the bus and take it off the dashboard
He was apparently moving backwards and his arm seemed to be by his side.
Many would say that he did not actually pose a threat.
It\'s really a time. -
What I see here is a moment of leadership that makes people understand, well, that\'s what we know, that\'s what we don\'t know, that\'s what we have in common.
I\'m tired of these conversations as if law enforcement and black people have to be on a different side.
For those who pay attention to racial oppression in this case, the race of those who take action is not important.
White supremacy may exist outside the background of the skin color you happen to be in.
It is systemic.
At the same time, the police did not stand on this side.
I work closely with rank. and-
Police officers and police chiefs who care about these issues and try to lead.
This is a tragic event.
Again, what I see here is the opportunity of a lot of people on the side, false polarization, hope is the opportunity for leadership.
Laura Coates said to you.
You are not only a lawyer, but you have worked in the civil rights department of the Ministry of Justice.
The Charlotte police department\'s statement of fact outline says ,--
They said, sir.
Scott pointed his gun at him with his DNA and fingerprints on it and bullets on it.
Even if he doesn\'t point to the police, it\'s not clear in all of these videos, we just don\'t know, if he does have a gun on him, will the grand jury sue the officer who killed him?
Laura Coates, CNN legal analyst: You know, I heard Paul say earlier that there is no grand jury or prosecutor who would accept this, and I have to say, Poppy, I don\'t fully believe you can\'t sue this case, that\'s why.
Yes, it is absolutely correct that an officer is responsible for figuring out whether lethal force should be used, and we judge an officer based on what other reasonable officers will do in this case.
But from the appearance of the video, it seems that there is no
Scott was facing the officer who shot in reverse, which told me there were other officers on the scene, in fact, similar to the officer who actually did.
Scott, they didn\'t choose to shoot him.
So when you have an accident, when you not only have other reasonable officials that are assumed, but you actually have them on site and they are not acting the same way, who do they seem to be, sir?
Scott is considering that this will be a factor in the grand jury.
Remember that the grand jury is not a trial jury and we must prove that without doubt.
This is a trial.
There is evidence to be presented.
But the grand jury only decides the possible reasons, which means these-
Is it possible that the officer caused the death of the gentleman?
In an illegal way, Scott?
You may be charged for watching this video.
Harlow: Okay.
There is more to be analyzed and discussed here, which is an important dialogue.
Thank you very much, Laura. Thank you all. Stay with me.
We\'ll take a break and come back, but before we go, I \'d like you to take a look at the Live Photos of Charlotte Keith Scott\'s downtown vigil.
More after this. (
Business break)[20:27:31]
Harlow: Okay.
My group is back.
Let me bring in retired police officer Cheryl Dorsey from the Los Angeles Police Department and other members of our group.
Cheryl, for you, let me see what you think about all the things that are not seen in the posted video.
Yes, we know more now, as long as we are able to see two of these vantage points, the dash camera and the body camera, but we also know that there are other videos at Charlotte police station that they won\'t release, it will not be released until the investigation is completed.
Without all the videos, is there any clarity on the transparency that the protesters are calling?
What would the police department think of insisting on some of them?
Why distribute it piecemeal?
Former Los Angeles police sergeant Cheryl Dorsey: Well, I have to believe the director\'s words and he has released the most relevant thing.
So, according to what we have seen, it is very similar to what he has said and will depend on the statements of those officers present.
When we understand and recognize that the version that the officers are going to claim is greatly respected, we can only believe what they say is why they are afraid, or the officer who shot, what is causing him to do so, and it will be difficult to debate because his feelings are his feelings.
If that\'s what he thinks, it\'s hard to argue with him about that.
Harlow: Cedric Alexander.
What is the most obvious thing you can\'t see in these videos?
I mean, obviously you can\'t see what\'s inside. -
If so, sir. Scott\'s hand.
Cedric Alexander, CNN law enforcement analyst: Well, it\'s going to be the most eye-catching thing, and none of the videos show him holding a gun in his hand.
But, of course, there is clear evidence that he has guns, according to science.
HARLOW: Right.
Including his DNA and fingerprints.
But let me ask you this, because--
Yes.
Harlow: that\'s what Charlotte police said. The gun was loaded with his fingerprints and DNA.
But they posted these three pictures, and I think we can pull them up and let our audience see these three pictures from the police station.
One of them is an ankle holster.
If the gun is left in the ankle holster, the gun is not pulled out or on the Sir
Scott\'s hand, Cedric, how will this change things when the police react to him and use lethal force?
Alexander: Well, you know, Poppy, that\'s--
We don\'t know, you know, because we don\'t know how detailed it is. -
When the police said he smoked, they saw him pick up the gun in the car. [20:30:09]HARLOW: Right.
Alexander: What is he doing with a gun?
Is he pointing at him or is he just showing off?
Does he know who they are?
Of course they came back.
They are obviously police officers.
This is a lot of questions that we can\'t answer, and this is what we really get from these videos.
I think the director said that in the early days of his release of the video, it would ask more questions than to give an answer, and I think the answer can only be drawn by completing a full investigation.
So, at this point, we will ask a lot of questions and a lot of questions from the public.
Here, it is understandable that many people are now wearing lenses that are very distrustful of the Police Department.
However, this will be an obstacle that we must overcome as we continue to discuss these videos until we have a complete and clear understanding of what actually happened and the investigation revealed.
To you, Paul Callan.
Do you think that from what we know now, to bring a lawsuit against this officer, do you have any assessment of whether a grand jury will sue or possibly sue?
Paul callan, CNN legal analyst: I don\'t think they will sue.
You have an African.
American officers fired.
You have evidence that someone may have some sort of mental problem and the wife says he has brain damage, meaning brain damage, holding a gun in his hand and refusing to put it down.
I just don\'t know what grand jury is going to file a lawsuit against this factual model, frankly ---
So Paul Harlow-
CALLAN: What is the point of prosecution if the jury is not convicted?
But I don\'t think we talked about the second question tonight.
Assuming the police are correct, and he carries a loaded weapon, what does it do to carry loaded guns with people with brain damage who take drugs in North Carolina?
What does this have to do with the ease with which people with apparently mental disabilities can carry loaded weapons?
I think this is a more important issue than you know to go back in time.
You know, we\'re guessing about these cops, nobody\'s talking about the level of tension on the street, and when a cop faces a potentially insane person, he\'s holding a gun with a bullet, refused to put it down.
If so, I \'d like to know why he was carrying the gun with the bullet.
Harlow: this is a very important point.
In the video you hear very clearly that Keith Scott\'s wife picked up her cell phone and you hear that she said that he was suffering from trauma and that he was suffering from trauma, which means brain damage.
She also told the police that he had no guns.
Obviously they say he has, so there are two different points of view from the family and from the officials.
But this is a very important point, Paul Karan, that needs more discussion and analysis.
Thank you very much.
All of you, on one side.
We have more breaking news about Charlotte tonight.
Next, I\'m going to talk to a lawyer who defended an accused police officer and then was acquitted in the death of Freddie Gray in Baltimore last year.
Next is his view of the situation in Charlotte. (
Business break)[20:37:08]
Harlow: welcome back because we\'re following the latest developments in Charlotte and two videos released by Charlotte police about the deadly shooting by Keith Scott.
I \'d like to bring in a lawyer from shorthill, New Jersey, Michael Basky.
He is a lawyer representing Lieutenant Brian Rice, one of the accused police officers, who was then acquitted in the death of Freddie Gray in Baltimore.
Thank you for being with me tonight.
Michael Basky, the attorney for the police officer who was acquitted in the Freddy Gray case: Thank you for inviting me.
Good evening, Poppy.
Harlow: Good evening.
You heard some of my former guests, like Paul Callan, another lawyer, say, if that\'s really the case
Scott did have a loaded gun when he was shot dead by the police, and gave the police station Other things about his refusal, and according to them, put the gun down, it is difficult for a grand jury to sue Officer Vincent. Do you agree?
BELSKY: I think if you follow the schedule given by the police station, if you believe that, that\'s the fact that if in fact the victim has a gun, it\'s hard to get an indictment, and this gun is aimed at the police officer, the final problem is that the police officer\'s fear of physical harm is imminent.
I believe it is very difficult to obtain an indictment.
Does this mean there is no administrative issue? I don\'t know.
But if these facts prove to be true, I believe it is difficult to obtain an indictment in this case.
HARLOW: When --
Given the video that has been posted, I would like to know what you think about the fact that the police department has been waiting for a few days before releasing this video.
At first, the police chief said we would not release the investigation until it was fully completed.
He then decided, but he only posted the two videos, a dashboard camera video about two minutes long, a body camera video about a minute long, not the other advantages that the department has.
He says the videos show the most.
I was wondering what you thought about the partial release of this kind of video, but not just putting all their videos there?
BELSKY: So first of all, I think it\'s entirely right that this family wants this video to be public.
I think the family has done a very respectful job of speaking to the public. HARLOW: Yes.
I listened to their lawyer tonight.
He was very respectful and did not rush to make any judgment.
I mean, let\'s take a step back and take a measurement.
I really believe he has a lot of respect for the system.
On the other hand, you think the integrity of the investigation is critical.
When you put the video out, when you put the scene out, you\'re interviewing witnesses who may come back and see something on the video, tempering their statements, or customizing their statements based on what they see on the video, is a problem.
So this is a double. edged sword.
Harlow: you represent-
You represent an accused officer and are then acquitted in the death of Freddie Gray in Baltimore last year. [20:40:09]
You know, we don\'t hear much from the police.
We only know the name of an officer, Officer Vincent, who shot and killed him.
We do not know the names of other officials who responded.
What is your opinion as a lawyer?
Do you advise your client not to say anything until it decides whether to sue or not-before everything is done ---
Do you know that it would be helpful for transparency, for tensions in the community, to hear from officials, to get them to come forward and speak and to express their opinions? What assessment happened that day?
BELSKY: Sure.
So at this time, I think behind the scenes, the police and his people, his representative, his lawyers are doing their own investigations.
They are looking at the facts, they are watching the video, just like you and I are watching the video, are determining what exists and what is real.
If they think it is better for an official to make a statement, I am sure he will make it.
He will do what is in his best interest because his lawyer will advise him to do so.
I believe the public wants to hear him, and I believe his version will appear at some point.
As far as their schedule is concerned, we get a lot from the police station, and I believe that both versions of the facts or all of them will show up at some point, and we will really understand what is going on in this case. I trust that.
Harlow: you--
Do you believe it? -
One of my past guests mentioned the race of Vincent, the official who shot and killed Keith Scott --
The police chief in Charlotte is African.
Keith Scott, who was shot dead, was also American.
Do you think the race of the officer involved has anything to do with the grand jury\'s decision to sue or not?
It should be true, obviously, but it\'s an African.
Obviously, the case that U. S. officials and U. -
There are other cases that have drawn national attention and you have white police.
It\'s different this time.
Is this important in the future that we may see?
BELSKY: The difference is that I can tell you that I represent four or five other African police officers before the last case --
Face similar or identical charges.
So it shouldn\'t have.
Should be dealt with on one case. by-case basis.
The facts of this case should decide whether to file a charge or not. It shouldn\'t --
I can tell you that in my history, white police and Africans have been charged
An American officer accused of a similar crime.
I told the white police not to be charged, and Africans.
There were no US officials accused of such an investigation.
It doesn\'t matter, I\'m sure the system will run the way it should, and it doesn\'t matter.
Harlow: Thank you very much.
I appreciate what you think of all this.
Lawyer Michael Baskey again represented a police officer who died in Freddy Gray, Baltimore.
Thank you very much for doing so.
Eric Belsky: Thank you.
Harlow: Next, you will hear from a lawyer representing the Scott family.
They just spoke this evening.
What they say, how they react, and how they react to videos that have been posted.
We are also looking at a major event in Washington state.
Police said a massive manhunt for a man was underway tonight, shooting at a shopping mall there last night, killing five people.
They\'re still looking for him.
You live in the CNN newsroom. (
Business break)[20:47:11]
Harlow: Okay.
We went back to our breaking news and the release of police video showed Keith Lamont Scott being shot and killed last Tuesday in Charlotte.
One of the videos is from the dash camera.
Another video came from the body camera footage of an officer responding to the scene.
They all recorded the moment when the police repeatedly ordered Keith Scott to drop the gun and shoot him.
Some of Scott\'s family members and family lawyers issued a statement not long ago.
This is part of it. (
Start Video Editing)
Scott family lawyer Justin banberg: I think it\'s important to remember here that this is an ongoing process, and there are a lot of questions to answer, and we will continue to look into the facts of this case.
But one of the biggest problems is that when you look at this dashboard camera lens, when you look at the time frame between Mr.
Scott walked out of his car and unfortunately at the moment he died on the sidewalk, did these actions, these precious hours, justify the shooting? (END VIDEO CLIP)
Harlow: Nick Valencia from CNN lives in Charlotte for us tonight.
They watched the video.
They held the press conference.
We heard from brother Rakeyia Scott.
Of course, she\'s Keith Scott\'s wife, but they don\'t ---
After that, the family did not answer any questions, and the lawyer also talked about how sad the family was.
We also heard the most prominent news from Rakeyia\'s relatives for you. Scott?
Valencia: I think their family is happy with the release of these videos, something they have been insisting on for four days.
We will last four days after Keith Scott was shot.
This is what the demonstrators are asking for in the opportunity to release the tape, release the tape, and this is a message we have heard here since we came here in Charlotte this week.
They also asked a few rhetorical questions, Poppy.
The lawyer said that he wanted the public to watch the video because they knew that the video had two angles, the dash cam video and the body cam video, asking, watching the video, do you think Keith Scott should die?
Do you think the shooting was reasonable?
This is something he detailed at a press conference earlier tonight. (

Dorch: We should not humanize him in order to treat him fairly.
What we know and what you should know is that he is a better American citizen. (END VIDEO CLIP)
Valencia: I asked family lawyers if they still thought Keith Scott was not carrying weapons.
This is a message they have been sending to the public since the shooting. [20:50:04]
The family lawyer said yes, they still don\'t think Keith Scott is carrying weapons. A follow-
How did the DNA evidence prove it, and how did Keith Scott\'s DNA get on the pistol?
How is his fingerprint on the pistol?
They said it was the first time they saw a picture of the gun and the holster and they were continuing to investigate ---Poppy.
Harlow: Nick, can we still hear from Constable Vincent who shot and killed him?
Valencia: he\'s been quiet all the time.
We have not heard any material news from him.
He has a family friend, a friend, and I believe you interviewed him earlier this week, who spoke on behalf of his character, talking about him being a member of the church and part of the Bible study.
But we really didn\'t hear anything from the police officer.
The first time we really saw the officer\'s dynamics and videos was from these videos released earlier today, and even then there was no really clear understanding of who the officer was, but we know he fired those deadly guns. -Poppy.
Harlow: Nick, Nick, you were at the press conference today, and director Cole Putney of Charlotte police said, look, we posted two videos, but none of them were posted.
Before the investigation was completely over, what reason did he provide for the department not to post all the videos?
Valencia: To be honest, he really didn\'t.
This is part of the frustration here and part of the anger.
They want full transparency.
The public here feels they deserve it.
They don\'t think--
The police are transparent enough or Frank enough.
They felt that, from the mayor\'s press conference to the director\'s press conference, we went through this process by chance with them and received a lot of criticism.
Earlier today, we heard in the crowd calls for the chief of police to resign, and we saw the evolution of expectations of the mayor and the chief of police for the past few years to release police videos.
The only reason given by the director is that this does not affect the integrity of the investigation, but it does breed the distrust of the demonstrators in the police sector, activists in this community and others, we only saw a video of a body camera and a dashboard camera.
They want to see all the evidence.
They may not see all the evidence, but what they are asking for is ---Poppy.
Harlow: at some point, though, Nick, you think they\'re going to do that, because you know the press conference is making requests for the Freedom of Information Act, and we\'ll see if those requests are approved, whether the video was released.
Live for us tonight in Charlotte.
Thank you very much.
I want to take you to Washington state because this weekend the police are looking for a man who walks into a shopping mall with his rifle, kills five people and is in the process of an emergency Hunt.
This happened last night.
Just north of Seattle.
Police say they don\'t know who the suspect is.
They just had an impression on him.
Nor do they know if the man knew his victims.
Our Stephanie Elland is in Burlington, Washington tonight. -Stephanie. (Start Video)
CNN correspondent Stephanie Ilam: Authorities are still looking for the man who walked into Macy\'s on Friday night and shot and killed four women before shooting and killing the fifth, a man who was then flown to Seattle, then died.
All we know is that this person, who they think is in their early 20 s, entered the mall without a gun.
Into the mall, into Macy\'s, and then they took him back with a rifle.
It was a shooting incident in the makeup department of Macy\'s.
The weapons were found at the scene.
However, what happened later is still a mystery.
They thought the man ran out, through here, and straight to the highway there.
It is Interstate 5, full length West Coast.
After that, they didn\'t know where he went, so they asked people to look at the photos if they had any information to contact the authorities.
It\'s not clear where the gun is hidden in the mall.
At this point, we don\'t know if this is personal.
They also said they had no reason to believe it was a terrorist attack, but at this point they had so little information that they could not rule it out.

US President Barack Obama: maybe they can help white tourists understand the pain and anger of demonstrators in places like Ferguson and Charlotte.
But it can also help black tourists to understand the fact that not only did the younger generation inherit the traditions of the past, but in the white communities across the country, we saw the sincerity of law enforcement officers and officials, they work on and off to understand and try to do the right thing.
