Louisiana ACLU Executive Director discusses Ronald Greene case, demands for justice and accountability within State Police

Local News

The Louisiana ACLU is joining the Louisiana Chapter of the NAACP and the family of Ronald Greene demanding justice in the investigation into his death.

Greene died in 2019 while in the custody of Louisiana State Police. Investigators initially said Greene died from injuries he sustained in a car crash. Body cam video recently released after a leak from the Associated Press, showed Troopers tasing, dragging and beating Greene before he died.

A march is set to happen Thursday afternoon at the State Capitol. Civil rights groups are calling for all troopers involved to be fired and for accountability within Louisiana State Police. Alanah Odoms, Executive Director of the Louisiana ACLU, discussed the case and demands for justice on NBC Local33 Today.
