A body-camera video of the Dec. 9 shooting death of Joshua Feast, 22, isn’t going to lessen grief or trauma for anyone involved.

But it should serve to ease tensions, anger, mistrust, conjecture and conspiracy theories among the greater public. It might not do that, but it should.

I agree. Justice starts with evidence, and the video provides an element of that. I hope that this case makes it to a grand jury for a definitive verdict, yay or nay, regarding the officer's actions. Both he and the public deserve that.

Joshua Feast was shot in the back. Period. No longer posing a threat. Was it gun or cell phone? Which by the way no one can find..... this case has some serious issues. But one thing we do know he was not a threat at the time he was shot. IN THE BACK....
