Trooper’s mic records talk of beating, choking Black man : worldnews

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 84%. (I’m a bot)


In graphic, matter-of-fact chatter picked up on his body-camera mic, a Louisiana State trooper implicated in the death of a Black man can be heard talking of beating and choking him before “All of a sudden he just went limp.”

Master Trooper Chris Hollingsworth, who himself died last week in a single-car crash, is heard recounting the May 2019 arrest of Greene in rural north Louisiana on audio provided to the AP through an intermediary who asked not to be identified because the case remains under investigation.

A State Police crash report obtained by AP omits any reference to troopers using force – or even arresting Greene – but notes that he was not wearing a seat belt in the crash.
