Here is the video that we have all been waiting for, part of the videos that Tanya Brown-Dickerson and I watched at Internal Affairs over the winter, but were not released to the public. As a result of the civil rights lawsuit we filed, today, the City of Philadelphia released several videos. I have redacted the video to show the several seconds prior to the shooting and then the shooting. It’s hard to see, but look up above the One Way sign. You’ll see Brandon run across the rear of the vehicle, from left to right, and then you’ll see him fall and drop dead mid-running motion from the single shot to the head. He was shot from behind, in the rear side of the head. He was in a running motion, forward, when he dropped, and was in no way anywhere near the passenger side door reaching in for any gun. This is a travesty of justice and a tragedy for Brandon and his family. May he rest in peace.
IMPORTANT: KEEP YOUR EYE ABOVE THE “W” ON THE “ONE WAY” SIGN. DURING THE LAST 3 SECOND OF THE VIDEO, YOU WILL SEE BRANDON TATE-BROWN RUN FROM THE “W’ TO THE “Y” AND THEN DROP DOWN FROM THE GUNSHOT, IN A FORWARD RUNNING MOTION, NOT REACHING INTO THE CAR FOR A GUN.
