This video was made from surveillance footage of correction officers chasing an inmate around New York's Albany County jail. A jail investigator made the film a few years ago while looking into the events leading to an officer's injury during the chase. That former corrections officer sent the video to the Times Union newspaper this week after losing a federal lawsuit "that claimed he was the butt of derogatory comments by his co-workers." From the Times Union:
Robert D. Hunter, who sent the video, said it was evidence in his 2008 lawsuit...
He led the chase, but feels the video ridiculed him and was shown for humor's sake at the police academy and a CPR training session. He said he experienced racial slurs because of his part-American-Indian heritage.
"You ran after that guy like he stole your land," Hunter said a correction officer said to him.
Jon Hendren, @fart, was mistakenly summoned onto Headline News instead of journalist John Hendren, to talk about whistleblower Ed Snowden. He talked about Edward Scissorhands instead. The clueless, scripted anchor didn’t seem to notice the difference.
