The Sheriff is a criminal

The news is out: [A sheriff in Texas has been indicted by a grand jury that accused him of destroying video evidence of the death of a Black man in police custody.
Sheriff Robert Chody of Williamson County was indicted by the grand jury on Monday on a felony charge of tampering with evidence connected to the death of Javier Ambler, a 40-year-old Black man. Ambler, a father of two and a postal worker, died on March 28, 2019, after he was shot by a stun gun and restrained by police following a 22-minute car chase.
The grand jury’s indictment says Chody acted to “destroy, or conceal a record, document, or thing; namely, video recordings and audio recordings, with intent to impair their availability as evidence in the investigation,” local NBC affiliate KXAN reported.
Local ABC affiliate KVUE and the Austin American-Statesman first reported on Ambler’s death in June of this year. Live PD, an A&E reality show that was filming the officers during Ambler’s arrest, confirmed that video evidence of his death had been destroyed.]

Everyone involved should be sued, including A&E.
