"The thing with the video, Mike DeWine didn't want the video released because, of course, he's saying it would taint the jurors in the grand jury proceedings. But that wasn't the real reason. And his second answer was more accurate. He said, if he released that video, all hell was going to break. It would be like releasing fireworks. That was the accurate answer right there."
"I'm not surprised that John's case, story, or any of that is overlooked because he won't be the first nor the last. Especially when John's death happened right on top of the Mike Brown situation, which already took over the news as it is. I could say, if Mike Brown wouldn't have gotten killed and John did, there would have been a lot more focus on that. So it's definitely picky choosy, but how many stories we don't know about? How many other parents lost their kids? We don't know about, unless we in that little city, town, area, So its definitely doesn't surprise me."
