>announced Wednesday, ahead of the expected release of about 20 more hours of footage from Nichols’ January encounter with police.

I cannot imagine having to watch 20 more hours of footage. The portions from the first round of footage were so unbelievably hard to watch by themselves. And so completely damning.

What the actual fuck would even be contained in that 20 hours? 20 hours of what??

If you go from multiple points of view…

Yeah but… how many points of view are there to equate to 20 hours? Ugh this whole thing is so fucking disgusting. I feel horrible for anyone who’s tasked with reviewing the footage.

Video evidence can get unwieldy with a quickness. Each police car should have a dash cam. Each police officer should have a body cam.

13 officers have been administratively (not criminally) charged. That's 26 different camera perspectives alone.

There may also be private owned security cameras that recorded portions of the crimes being committed by LEOs. Some ambulances and fire trucks are cammed up now as well.

Makes sense. You only need 1hr if you have 20 cams. Even less for more. Just have them all synced with one of those strwam viewers

Yep. And there are services now that make the whole thing super super easy. They put the camera in a cradle and it recharges and uploads all the data and thats it. The storage, transfer, and validation of the data is all handled as a service provided.

I believe it shows the cops’ interaction with the Nichols family after they beat him. I’m guessing it will include them lying in order to blame their victim.
