Civil Rights attorney Ben Crump says law enforcement officials recently showed him and the family a short video of the moments around Emantic Bradford Jr.’s death, but it isn’t enough, according to a statement issued Friday.

Crump says he and the Bradford family saw the video last Friday at the invitation of District Attorney Danny Carr and the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency. Crump says the DA’s office and agency hoped to build trust by showing the video. Yet he says the 30 seconds was not enough.

“We continued to request that all video footage of the mall from that night be publicly released — body cam, surveillance, etc,” Crump says. “We were told, because of the ongoing criminal investigation, that they would not release the video until after they had concluded the criminal investigation.”

Crump says the DA’s office and ALEA agreed to show them the video if they promised to keep it confidential. But he says they can confirm that what they saw was consistent with the findings of an independent autopsy.

The family hired an independent forensic pathologist to conduct an autopsy on Bradford. Crump released the findings on Dec. 3rd during a press conference.

Bradford died Thanksgiving night after he was shot by a police officer at the Riverchase Galleria Mall in Hoover. Initially, officials said a fight broke out and gun shots were fired, wounding two people. They said Bradford was seen with a gun and he wounded 18-year-old Brian Wilson. But less than 24 hours later, officials issued another statement saying it was “highly unlikely” that Bradford fired the shots that injured two people. But questions about Bradford’s gun still remain unanswered.

Combating gun violence remains a top focus of the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

Some 3rd graders in local schools could be held back under new law 

This is the first school year that third graders who do not read at grade level by the end of the school year must be held back in that grade, rather than passed on to fourth grade. The Alabama Literacy Act was passed several years ago, but its implementation was delayed because of the pandemic.
