Looks like the victim of a fatal police shooting had enough of the delay. They released the encounter filmed from the victim's wife. This video went viral.

The wife screams at the officers telling them that he didn't have a gun. He had a TV guide. The video lasted 2 minutes and 12 seconds show the officer pointing at Keith's direction.
"Don't shot him, he has no weapon," said Rakeyia Scott. She tells the officers he has a traumatic brain injury and then assures them, "He's not gonna do anything, he just took his medicine."
Rakeyia yells at Keith saying "Keith, don't you do it!" It's not clear if she was telling not exit the vehicle.
Police then fired on him. He would be on the ground bleeding and the cops would cuff him.
"Did you shoot him?" Rakeyia says while recording the encounter. "He better live. He didn't do nothing to them."
The cops were marked with their bulletproof vest and they had the plain clothes. Now there's a portion of the video where an object was dropped on the ground. Some are claiming its a gun.
Others claim it's a glove.
Nonetheless the calls are growing for the law to release the body camera and dash camera footage.
