Manuel Levi Loggins Jr.: Attorney for Family of Marine Slain by Deputy Defends "Crash" Video
|The late Sgt. Loggins|
Brian Dunn of the Cochran Firm in Los Angeles appeared this afternoon on CNN, whose anchor Brooke Baldwin explained the cable news network was still "processing" the 31 minutes of footage from a camera mounted at San Clemente High School.
Told that the video shows the SUV crashing through the school gates, Dunn, who has seen the footage, countered, "What we see is what appears to be a traffic accident. The vehicle was run or driven into the gate. The severity of the accident is unclear. The extent of the property damage is unclear. I have seen damage to the SUV."
The video also shows the SUV was followed by a sheriff's unit with its lights on.
"I think what's important about this video is not what it shows but what it doesn't show," observed Dunn, speaking like a true attorney. ". . . This is a case . . . involving the death of a man, a man that was shot and killed in the presence of his daughters. He was not armed. We have no concept as to why the deputy fired. He was not threatened. No crime had occurred. . . . No information has been given by the Orange County Sheriff's Department as to why this was justified in any way."
