The Associated Press has obtained video of Louisiana state troopers electrocuting, beating and dragging Ronald Greene, a Black man who was killed during a 2019 traffic stop in Monroe, Louisiana. AP released portions of the 46-minute video showing one officer putting Greene in a chokehold and punching him in the face, while another can be heard calling him a “stupid MF-er.” After the beating, AP reports the officers left Greene unattended, moaning and face down for more than nine minutes as officers refused to render aid, instead washing blood off their hands and faces. Greene arrived dead at an area hospital with two Taser prongs in his back. Police initially told Greene’s family he died of a car crash. Greene’s family has filed a federal wrongful death lawsuit.
