Fuck the police.

Attorney Gayle Gear said the officers who approached Anthony Warren had not seen him thrown from his van when it overturned at the end of a police chase, and they assumed he was a threat.

Gear said the officers were following their training to force Warren to submit and they have appealed their dismissal to the Jefferson County Personnel Board.

Birmingham District Attorney Brandon Falls says that the video footage of Warren’s beating wasn’t discovered until the prosecuting attorney on the case requested the original recording after experiencing technical difficulties with the copy she’d been given. Falls claims that the beating had been edited out of the copy they’d received and was not discovered until the prosecutor on the case watched the original footage all the way through. She then contacted Warren’s attorney.
