A North Carolina judge on Wednesday ruled against the release of police body camera footage in the killing of Andrew Brown Jr.
Superior Court Judge Jeff Foster said that there was “compelling public interest” in the video, but that the media is not entitled to see it and that its release “would create a serious threat to the fair impartial and orderly administration of justice.”
The article goes on to state the following:
Foster also ruled that the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation would have 30-45 days to complete its probe, at which point he would consider a public release of the footage.
According to the article, the judge did say that the immediate family and one lawyer could view the video footage in 10 days.
He also ruled that the Pasquotank County Sheriff’s Office could use discretion and blur out the faces of police and others involved if they see fit.
