North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said a special prosecutor should have been put in charge of Andrew Brown Jr. case.
“Federal officials should continue to thoroughly investigate this incident. Public confidence would have been better served with a special prosecutor and by quickly making public the incident footage. Our state should pass specific laws to increase transparency, confidence and accountability in the justice system,” Cooper said in a statement to CNN.
From the beginning, Cooper has called for the footage to be made public as well as a special prosecutor be assigned in the case.
