Body camera footage of a black man's arrest in Austin, Texas, where he says "I can't breathe" multiple times is under investigation. https://t.co/ZVgrqjHpjW— CNN (@CNN) June 9, 2020
OP will not be posting any video regarding this incident (the video is linked at the second source, so please be cautious) - but it is important to note how the incredibly popular A&E show Live PD pulled their episodes off the air in response to the many protests around the world from the recent police deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Dreasjon Reed, Ahmaud Arbery, James Scurlock, Michael Ramos, Sean Monterosso and many others in the very recent months.
Since this country and that show don't give an iota of a fuck about black and Latino people and wasn't dipping in ratings, OP thinks it was a pre-emptive move to ensure someone didn't go digging into the fact that the show and its film crew filmed the death of a black man in March 2019 by a Williamson County sheriff's deputy in Texas.

It should be noted that the law enforcement agencies who collaborate with the show are allowed to pick and choose what footage is broadcast - Ambler's death wasn't and it is alleged the film crew turned the tape over to the agency without ever making a declaration to prosecutors, their viewers, etc. And this show still continued.
They probably though pulling the show, wouldn't have people looking for these types of incidents - but it's being investigated.
