IF I MAY, JUST BEGIN WITH YOU

AND ASK YOU WHAT HAPPENED TO RONNIE? >> HE WAS KILLED BY CPD IN O 2014. >> CAN YOU TELL ME MORE ABOUT WHAT HE WAS DOING AT THAT TIME,

THAT DAY, WHAT LED TO THIS? >> HE WAS AT A PARTY OVER THERE IN THEIR NEIGHBORHOOD. AND THE CAR THAT HE WAS IN HAD HAD GOT SHOT UP AND E HE JUMPED OUT AND RAN IN THE PROCESS OF

HIM RUNNING, HE WAS MURDERED. >> AND YOU ARE ACCUSING CHICAGO POLICE OF NOT ONLY YOU SAY KILLING HIM, BUT SITTING ON THE TAPE. TELL ME WHY YOU THINK THAT.

>> BECAUSE THIS HAPPENED A YEAR AGO AND I'VE BEEN FIGHTING SUNS THEN TO GET. THE VIDEO RELEASED AND THEY STILL HAVEN'T RELEASED IT IT. >> WHAT'S THE REASON THEY HAVE

GIVEN YOU AS FAR AS WHY THEY HAVEN'T RELEASED IT. >> IF I CAN JUMP IN ON THAT. WE FILED A FEDERAL CIVIL LAWSUIT AFTER THE SHOOTING AND THE KILLING OF RONALD HOLMES.

IMMEDIATELY THE CITY WENT IN AND OBTAINED THE PROTECTIVE ORDER FROM THE FEDERAL JUDGE ASKING THAT THE VIDEO NOT BE RELEASED. I FILED A FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST TO GET THE VIDEO THAT

WAS DENIED BY THE CHICAGO POLICE DEPARTMENT AND THE CITY. WE HAVE SINCE FILED A FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT LAWSUIT TO GET THE VIDEO RELEASED. THE CITY AND THE POLICE HAVE

BEEN BLOCKING US AT EVERY STEP. THEY DON'T WANT THIS VIDEO RELEASED. THEY SAT ON THIS PRIOR TO THE McDONALD SHOOTING AND HERE WE ARE AGAIN SAME OLD STORY

COVERING THIS UP. AND ALL THEY HAVE DONE IS TRIED TO KEEP THIS QUIET SO THE PUBLIC CAN'T SEE IT. >> SO HERE YOU ARE BOTH OF YOU FIGHTING TO HAVE THE TAPE

RELEASED. AND TO YOU, NOW YOU SEE THIS VIDEO OF THE DEATH. HAVE YOU WATCHED THE VIDEO? >> HAVE I WATCHED WHICH VIDEO? >> NOT THE VIDEO OF YOUR SON

YOU'RE TRYING TO HAVE RELEASED BUT THE VIDEO OF LA-QUAN THAT WAS KILLED AFTER YOUR SON. WHEN HE WAS SHOT 16 TIMES. >> I COULDN'T WATCH IT. >>, PLAIN THE EMOTIONS YOU WERE

FEELING AFTER WHAT YOU WERE GOING THROUGH WITH YOUR OWN SON. >> IT BROUGHT BACK A LOT OF MEMORIES AND IT BROUGHT BACK MEMORIES TO WHAT I HAD SEEN ON THE TAPE OF MY SON.

>> MICHAEL, WE WANT TO GET THE CHICAGO POLICE'S SIDE. WE HAVE GOTTEN NOTHING FROM THEM SO FAR, ALTHOUGH THEIR SPOKESPERSON HAS SAID SINCE THEIR SHOOTING THAT DOROTHY'S

SON THAT HE HAD A GUN AND HE POINTED HIS GUN AT OFFICERS BEFORE HE WAS SHOT. I KNOW YOU DISAGREE. YOU TELL ME YOUR VERSION OF EVENTS.

>> SHE HAD A STATEMENT THROUGH THEIR SPOKESMAN AND TURNED AND POINTED THEIR GUN AND THE OFFICER FIRED FOR HIS PROTECTION AND THE PROTECTION OF OTHERS. THAT WAS BEFORE THEY SAW THE

VIDEO. THE VIDEO IS VERY CLEAR IN THE NUMBER ONE HE DOES NOT HAVE ANY WEAPON IN HIS HAND. HE IS RUNNING FULL SPEED AWAY FROM THE POLICE.

THE OFFICER GOT OUT OF HIS CAR, TOOK THREE STEPS, AIMED TOWARDS RONALD'S BACK AND FIRED FIVE SHOTS. TWO OF THOSE STRUCK HIM. ONE WENT THROUGH THE BACK AND

SEVERED THE JUGGER VEIN AND OUT THROUGH HIS EYE SOCKET. THE POLICE SAY WHEN HE FELL, THEY RECOVERED A GUN FROM HIS RIGHT HAND. FIRST OF ALL, HE NEVER TURNED

AND POINTED ANYTHING. HE NEVER EVEN TURNED AND THAT'S CLEAR ON THE VIDEO. SINCE THEN THE POLICE HAVE CHANGED THEIR STORY. THEY HAVE BEEN CAUGHT IN A

BUNDLE OF LIES. THERE'S NO WAY U THAT THAT GUN WAS IN HIS HAND. THERE WAS NOTHING IN HIS HAND.
