KTVE/KARD — The Louisiana House of Representatives has released a statement on the Ronald Greene video and investigation.

The statement was made by Louisiana House of Representatives Democratic Caucus Chairman Sam Jenkins.

“It took too long for the videos of Ronald Greene to be released. What I witnessed in those videos is appalling and horrific. I will carry those images with me for the rest of my life. The people of Louisiana need Mr. Greene’s death to be investigated in the full light of sunshine. After we were made to wait so long for the release of the video, the public needs to hear the status of the federal investigation. More importantly, the people need to know if a legitimate state level investigation is being conducted. And when the investigations are concluded, the results need to be released to the public. There is no other way for our state to heal.”
