'I'm sorry, I'm scared,' cops say after torturing a handcuffed man to death and claiming he died in a car accident.

The family of Ronald Greene as well as the public at large were all told a tragic but utterly false story about this 49-year-old Louisiana man's last moments alive. According to officials, Greene died after his car crashed into a "tree/shrub" just outside Monroe on May 10, 2019. The Louisiana State Police are crying foul after footage was leaked of officers torturing Greene to death on the side of the road. The LSP claim the footage, which was published by the Associated Press is "premature" and was "not authorized" "Unauthorized release of evidence undermines the investigative process and compromises the fair and impartial outcome for the Greene family, LSP employees, and the community," a spokesperson for the law enforcement agency said. "There was no major damage to the car," Greene's mother, Mona Hardin, told the AP.

When we look at the photos of the car which were released by the family last year, it looks like a minor fender bender. Nevertheless, the Louisiana State Troopers claimed that Greene died in the wreck. A newly leaked video shows the beating of Ronald Greene, who died after a car crash. The video shows troopers choking and beating the man, repeatedly jolting him with stun guns and dragging him across the pavement. One trooper can be heard calling Greene a "stupid son of a b–k" The family has since filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the State Troopers and they will undoubtedly win.

The only portion of the video that was obtained by the media was a 27-second audio clip that is essentially a confession from one of the culprits in the beating.  Trooper Christopher Hollingsworth was put on notice that he was under investigation last year, and died in a single-car crash last year. The clip is essentially an audio confession from Hollingworth in which he is heard telling a fellow cop, "I beat the ever-living f— out of" Greene. The family of Greene has filed the wrongful death suit against the state and will probably win, as the video was released to the media.
