After refusing to release a cop’s body cam footage after a fatal shooting of a black man, the footage was released and its recording contradicts what the office said. John Iadarola and Jayar Jackson, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down.

“’We never lost eye contact, his eyes were bugging out, his face was just expressionless,’ Van Dyke said. ‘He turned his torso towards me. He waved the knife from his lower right side upwards across his body towards my left shoulder.’
‘I shot him.’
Over the course of 90 minutes, Van Dyke described what led him to shoot the black 17-year-old 16 times. He said he feared that officers on the scene were ‘under attack,’ despite several officers staying in their vehicles as they watched McDonald walk down an empty street. He said he fired when McDonald raised the knife at him, despite a dashboard camera video of the shooting showing McDonald’s arms at his side. And Van Dyke claimed that he continued to fire more than a dozen bullets at the fallen teen because McDonald attempted to get up, something else that video does not show.”
