Crow Statement on Release of Body Camera Footage By Aurora Police Department
AURORA – Rep. Jason Crow (CO-06) released the following statement regarding body camera footage released by the Aurora Police Department and the arrest of the two Aurora Police officers involved.
“I am outraged by the body camera footage released yesterday by the Aurora Police Department. The victim, Kyle Vinson, repeatedly cried out, “you are killing me,” as he was violently attacked by Officer Haubert. Our communities are still mourning the loss of George Floyd, Daunte Wright, Elijah McClain, Breonna Taylor, and so many others whose lives have been cut short by police brutality. That Kyle Vinson was able to survive this encounter does not make it any less abhorrent and unacceptable.
“I am relieved the Aurora Police Department has taken the appropriate steps to charge the officers involved and look forward to a full and transparent investigation. These steps towards accountability are important and hard fought, but we will not have real justice until we change the system and culture that allows these abuses to happen.”
