Brutal Sacramento area cops execute young Latino man, then turn bodycams on

It was a brutal Police State execution, followed by a cover-up.

Body camera footage showing the tense moments following the fatal shooting of a 23-year-old Sacramento man by three Rocklin police officers in February was made public Friday, even as the department continues to conduct an administrative investigation into the incident.

The release included 911 calls, in-car-camera footage and body camera video recorded from two of the three officers, Breanna Adams and Cpl. Chris Osborne, who fired their weapons at Lorenzo Cruz on Feb. 25. Officers were told a man had broken into a home at 10:01 a.m. in the 4900 block of Bradford Place in Rocklin.

No camera footage was released for John Constable, the third officer at the scene. None of the officers turned on the cameras until after the shooting, though department protocol is to activate them in most instances, including stops, pursuits or when they believe they may make an arrest or detain someone.

Officers had several minutes to turn on their cameras before arriving to the scene.

Enjoy your Police State.
