Although Mount Pleasant Police Sgt. Eric Giese's body camera was not activated when he shot Ty' Rese West after a foot pursuit June 15, other officers who responded to the scene did have theirs turned on.
Watch the video below to see footage from the other officers as Giese tells his account of what happened in the moments leading up to the shooting of West, 18.
"He wouldn't (expletive) listen. He wouldn't (expletive) stand still," Giese is heard saying in the video.
According to the decision not to charge Giese published Wednesday, District Attorney Patricia Hanson wrote: "Sergeant Giese described the situation as the most intense and stressful situation of his life."
The video below is the complete footage released by the Racine County District Attorney's Office, with the only edits being the censoring of nine curse words.
