    The video in question doesn't fall under an open records request? Or is there a stipulation (like they say) about ongoing investigations. If anything, that should be WHY it needs to be released.

    edit: if it was an officer being shot, how long would it take for the video to be released?

    Exception to open records for ongoing criminal investigation.

    For the LEO's sake I hope it was justified. But only time will tell through the investigation. I believe justice will be served and the truth will be told, reguardless of the outcome and which side is at falt. I hope we as a firearm discussion group, don't jump to any conclusions.

    The officer shot when "Jordan, moving his right hand from his pocket gesturing in a threatening manner," one of the police reports says. A witness told WXIA-TV that Wise ordered Jordan to get down before he fired.

    What does this mean? He pulled his hands from his pocket, pointed his finger at the cop and made a "pow" noise? I can see moving to his pocket, but from? And no weapon?

    If the cops let the officer back on the job July 11, I imagine they are pretty sure he's innocent. Release all the records then. Seems like common sense.
