On October 30, 2018 Treshon Nedill Broughton filed suit against Alex Gordon, Shane Emerson, the Pullman Police Department, and other unnamed defendants with a complaint alleging various violations of Broughton’s civil rights. Broughton alleges unlawful detention, filing of false or misleading documents about said detention, excessive force, violations of Broughton’s Sixth and Fourteenth Amendment rights, and malicious prosecution – all stemming from an incident that took place on February 18, 2017 in Pullman.
Since that incident some videos have emerged, but they are all incomplete – showing only a portion of what was captured – and they also represent only a small, cherry-picked portion of the full body of video associated with the incident and arrest. It’s difficult to form an opinion about something when you don’t know what actually happened.
So for this case, Real World Police is filling in the blanks.
Because there will be many videos in this series the channel will not be solely dedicated to it. Instead, regular programming will continue as these videos are published.
This video was captured on the body worn camera of Officer Alex Gordon.
