This is the Proposed Decision of the CT FOI Commission regarding the Yale Campus Police Body Camera Footage from the Living or Napping While Black Hate Crime Hoax at Yale. This Proposed Decision is a travesty of justice. They are protecting the Yale Administration. This decision means that if George Floyd had been killed in CT, CT would have denied the public the Police Body Camera Footage. It basically means that CT Police can almost always deny the public access to Police Body Camera Footage, simply because it behooves them to do so:
My attorney, Jay Wolman, of the Randazza Legal Group, made two astute points.
1 — If CT Police can simply say that they were investigating for criminal activity, even if the person who called the police had ZERO intention of reporting criminal activity, then, when no criminal charge results, CT can always deny the public access to Police Body Camera Footage.
2 — If the police present at a response to a call, or anyone, including private citizen bystanders, make an accusation of criminal activity, and no criminal charge results, then CT can always deny the public access to the Police Body Camera Footage.
This, of course, means that if George Floyd had been killed by CT Police in CT, CT would have denied the public access to the Police Body Camera Footage.
George Floyd was accused of criminal activity, and he was never charged. Of course, he was never charged, because he was killed by the Minneapolis Police Officers present. But, simply because he was never charged with a crime, the Minneapolis Police Officers investigating, based upon the call by the store, means that CT would have denied the public access to this Police Body Camera Footage.
This is nothing more and nothing less than a Travesty of Justice. The CT FOI Commission should be utterly ashamed. They are very clearly protecting the Yale Administration. This CT Law is a travesty of justice and should be repealed. It is utterly preposterous that the CT FOI Commission is trying to retain this ridiculous law, including by obstructing my efforts to save my life and lifelong human and civil rights academic and legal careers. The CT FOI Commission would rather I die than give up this ludicrous CT law that denies the public access to Police Body Camera Footage, which they should very clearly have.
If you care about Black Lives Matter. If you care about the cornerstone of Black Lives Matter, Police Accountability and Transparency, then you should be incensed over this ludicrous Proposed Decision by the CT FOI Commission. The CT FOI Commission clearly does not support or care about Black Lives Matter or Police Accountability or Transparency.
