Without access to police recordings, we would not know what happened to victims of police violence," Cat Bao Le, executive director of SEAC, told NBC News. "We will be unable to hold police who kill our brothers and sisters of color accountable for their actions. The purpose of body cameras and police recordings are to build public trust in the police. It is important for Governor Pat McCrory to veto HB 972 for Chieu Di Thi Vo, Jonathan Ferrell, Bong Ackhavong, Sandra Bland, Freddie Gray, Eric Garner, Mike Brown, Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, and many more beloved community members whose lives were ended by police violence."
