.@ColumbusPolice have released an enormous wave of new public records tied to the shooting of #andrehill. Going through them now.
Two quick things from the body cam worn by Ofc. Detweiler: it appears Hill's phone was in the middle of a text conversation (doesn't appear to be recording) and a woman in a nearby house yells "he was coming to bring me christmas money."
Other bits from Ofc. Aaron Ward's camera--a diff officer says he's telling everyone around the scene to turn off their cameras. Ward tells him not to.
Later, another says he'll "call the FOP and let them know" presumably about the officer involved shooting.

I no longer watch videos of police killing Black men, but I read the report. My take: #AndreMauriceHill should still be alive if we had public safety instead of publicly financed killing squads targeting Black men. They killed him and showed no regard for this life. 1/N
Every single police officer who was there before the medics arrived should be under arrest. Officer Adam Coy shot #AndreHill for no reason and then every officer stood there and let him die. Is this public safety? Is this even basic competence as police? 2/N
The fact that the officers yelled at #AndreHill to roll over and put his hands up after they shot him tells me everything I need to know. The mythology of the threatening Black man is maintained after being shot in cold blood, unarmed. It’s sick, and typical police behavior. 3/N
