Default Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards Knew Real Story Behind Black Motorist's Death: Re

Less than 9 hours after the incident, police told the governor there was a violent struggle with a black man after a car chase and crash...

Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards Knew Real Story Behind Black Motorist's Death: Report

Quote:
Text messages recently obtained by the Associated Press seem to show that Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards was informed that Ronald Greene's 2019 death was not caused by a car crash, as police claimed in the following months, but that officers also engaged in a "violent, lengthy struggle" with Greene following a high-speed chase.

The new report from the AP contradicts two years of public comments from Edwards refusing to dispute the official story from police officers that Greene died from injuries sustained in a car crash after a chase in which authorities say he topped 100 miles per hour.

At 10 a.m. on May 10, 2019, about nine hours after the 49-year-old Greene's death, Edwards received a text message from then-Louisiana State Police Superintendent Kevin Reeves informing him of the incident, according to the AP.

The message read: "Good morning. An FYI, early this morning, troopers attempted to stop a vehicle in Ouachita Parish. The driver fled thru two parishes in excess of 110 mph, eventually crashing. Troopers attempted to place the driver under arrest. But, a violent, lengthy struggle took place. After some time struggling with the suspect, troopers were joined by a Union Parish deputy and were able to take the suspect into custody. EMS was summoned to assess the suspect's injuries. The suspect remained combative but became unresponsive shortly before EMS arrived. The suspect was later pronounced dead at the hospital. We are investigating the suspect's death."

A spokesperson for Edwards' office said that the text was standard in terms of notifying the governor of the incident, the AP reported. The text, though, contradicted the story that Greene's family says it was told asserting that he died on impact in the crash.
As a side note, there is ZERO mention of the governor's political party, which tells us EXACTLY what political party he's in...

My 'thanks' is not so much a finger point at the Governor involved, but the fact that while both political parties have members who have lied, covered things up and generally considered themselves above the peons, only one party consistently claims they are there to help the 'oppressed', and succeed in doing the exact opposite the majority of the time.

I hope the family gets to the bottom of the issue.

Yet another point that flew right over your head.
