In contradiction to other cases where the police have released videos within hours of a shooting, the office is so far holding back.
7 days of protests .
Video of the Deputies riding in a truck on the way to deliver a warrant of arrest or sales of crack and methamphetamines in March.
8 officers with body cams, and only one 20 second clip was released to the attorneys. The family's attorney released the following,
Cherry-Lassiter said she watched the 20-second clip repeatedly to take notes about what it showed:
A deputy drove up and blocked Brown, who was in his car, in the driveway.
Brown had his hands on the steering wheel as several deputies ran up, guns drawn, demanding that he show his hands.
Several shots were fired at Brown, who kept his hands on the steering wheel.
Brown then tried to get away from the gunfire and backed out around the sheriff's office vehicle.
Deputies yelled at him to stop and continued firing.
Brown's car ran into a tree down the street from his home, and deputies ran up on the car, continuing to fire shots.
Cherry-Lassiter said she lost count of how many shots were fired, adding that she doesn't know whether any were fired before the 20 seconds of video started.
So far 3 officers have resigned and 7 have been put on administrative leave.

Investigations have been launched, but as of now there is no police cam footage for the public.
In this case with 3 officers resigning, I have to suspect something went terribly wrong, or their was miscommunications.
Should the police be as accountable for their mistakes as they are for their successes when it comes to video? The police were quick in Ohio to release bodycam video when it vindicated the officer.
Shouldn't the same be held true when the officers make a mistake, or their are issues with the shooting. or do we need to rely on third party cameras such as in the case of Derick Chauvin.
For the Record, the police never served the warrent or found weapons or drugs with Andrew Brown Jr.
